2) Aside from its actual, benign meaning, it usually a code word for reactionary rednecks. The talk radio hosts say 'multiculturalism' and all the listeners go, "Aha! Someone who agrees with me in politics!"
"Dude, I know you're jealous because I aced Spanish and you failed, but please quit parroting Michael Savage for decency's sake."
Kid: Mom, I thought we were in England, this looks like Pakistan!
Mom: You're so insensitive you obviously know nothing about multiculturalism!!
Currently, it seems to have replaced the antiquated idea of the melting pot (also a stupid idea that no one ever took seriously) . It leads to more knowledge of and respect for other languages and cultures ( in the same way that forcing kids to study subjects they're not interested in teaches them to appreciate school, amirite?).
Fucking idiot: you be a racisss 'n shit
I live in Texas & being American I cannot complain about multi-culturalism here destroying our culture without some troll telling me that multi-culturalism created our society, that Islamists & Mexican drug dealers are more American than me, & that me & all the white people should move back to Europe & give our houses & buildings to the few Native Americans left.
European immigration created our country, not multi-culturalism!
Kid-"Mom are we in Africa or Mexico? I thought Texas was a white patriotic redneck state."
*A Texan visits Europe to get away from the multi-culturalism of Texas & visit their Caucasian homeland*
Texan-"Wait I thought I was visiting Europe so I can be with my own people. Back in Texas I have people telling me all the time to move back to Europe & give my house to a Native American. Well Im back where I came from, now where are my people? All I see is a bunch of Islamists, blacks, Indians, & Asians."
