Something I don't get about my country, and why I think this whole idea of multiculturalism in my neck of the woods is a ROF laugh a minute. We seem to think, that by allowing several thousand asian migrants to our shores on a yearly basis, we become, as if by "magic" - a multicultural society that celebrates diversity...and blah blah...you know the line. I think its total bs tbh. Absolutely no effort is put into bringing together the diverse groups of people that make up the country these days, absolutely no discussion on the national agenda on how we could improve the uptake of asian languages, no conversation on how we could take advantage of this mix to bring about something really exciting and cool culturally. Chinatown is as sophisticated as it gets. I wonder if we should just shut the gates and stop the illusion tbh. Observed factoids. - Virtually no asians in parliament, what 1 exception? - Barely any on T.V - Barely any in advertising (aside from some billboard advertising) - Barely any in documentaries about national life - Virtually none in the national sports ...and the list goes on. We need to stop pretending.
