Situating "Multiculturalism"

In response to your dual analysis of the Bouie article and the second half of Lytle-Hernandez's book, I was intrigued by the use of the term "multiculturalism" as a conceit of the Slate piece. Multiculturalism resonates a generative lens to think through race relations in the multiple temporal contexts of this week's readings. More specifically, we can be more critical of what multiculturalism is-- whether as a necessary celebration of difference or as a topical appreciation that fails to recognize the discrete nuances of ethno-racial formations. Thinking through what we mean about multiculturalism, and its applications in the 20th century Border Patrol politics and contemporary renditions of the black-white binary, would provide ample space to discuss the two texts synergistically and independently.
