The assimilation debate (testing cultural nationalism)

When the civil rights movement emerged in the 1960s, it was sometimes labeled as fascist. Today, there is a flap over whether or not Tom Brokaw and a Duke professor are going too far when they call for Hispanics to learn English as part of their assimilation. This very short blog is about the coercive aspects of separatist social movements, grounded in fantasies of reparations.

The original 60s civil rights movement was integrationist, as inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.. although there were fringe movements following separatist Marcus Garvey (in the 1920s) claiming to be “fascist” and before that, Henry Highland Garnett (in the 19th century).

The Chicano movement, as led by social democratic Cesar Chavez demanded unionization, not the return of the Southwest and California to Mexico. But the Democratic Party recently have gone over to separatism, with its antagonism to assimilation.

Multiculturalism has changed all that, and its racist content has been noted constantly on this website.
