Diversity and the Challenges of Integration
Multiculturalism, as a policy and a way of life, respects diversity in our society. It continues to be the target of attacks by critics. Although at times these attacks are unjustified, they should not be ignored. They must be taken into consideration, especially when they relate to the distorted abuse of right and privileges associated with multiculturalism. Based on the premise of rights and responsibilities, a clearly defined multicultural policy can respond to critics who seek to destroy its very foundations, and abusers whose motivations are to keep communities separate one from the other.
