Define multicultural? The Ainu people were once the dominant culture in the land of Japan but the Yamato people have come to be the prevailing culture with the majority of the Ainu being replaced + assimilated. If the majority of the foreign born intend to stay (A lot of them are ethically Japanese born elsewhere anyhow I assume) they too will likely be assimilated into the monolithic culture of Japan.

It said "may" become, not absolutely "will" become

also this is a good article. it points out some negative things in the past but shows that things are improving
https://www.insidejapantours.com/blog/2014/10/06/japan-country-of-diversity/
Also there is this
https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/newsroomtokyo/features/20171106.html
Also there are many sources on the internet that show that young Japanese tend to be fascinated by K-Pop and Korean fashion, however I found only one source that gave me actual numbers.
https://soranews24.com/2017/12/11/from-pop-culture-to-fashion-rise-of-south-korea-sees-a-marked-influence-on-japanese-teenagers/

anyways I would define "multiculturalism" as a blending of cultures helped in part by some immigration and people interacting with other cultures.

Hopefully not. Multiculturalism is a blatant failure, is oikophobic, and destroys the host culture.

Are you calling the U.S. a blatant failure?

You might be confused

I am not sure if you were talking to me or qwueri.

If you were talking to me I have already provided links to sources that say that Korean culture is becoming popular in Japan and that a temple in Japan held a traditional Vietnamese ceremony for Vietnamese living in Japan.

Assimilation is a good thing in this case.

Diversity means division. Divided we are weaker.

Ok.

But will they actually build a temple for them ? Or are they just showing respect?

You see the difference in that I hope.

See, like here in Canada we built a mosk for Muslims. That's multiculturalism.

I hope you see the difference in that.

Canada is getting weaker and weaker, as it descends into blatant human rights violations, as evidenced with Lindsey Shepperd, Jordan Peterson, and it's blatant human rights violations surrounding freedom of speech.

No, as the Melting Pot is a hardcore monocultural idea: You come here a foreigner, and your former culture and identity melt away and you come out an American. This is basic history. Multiculturalism is what the oikophobic bigots have been trying to oppose on us for the last few decades, much to the chagrin of actual-Americans.

As Teddy Roosevelt, one of our greatest presidents, said during the Ellis Island Great Wave:

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

"Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all."


about Canada... the things you mentioned about it (like human rights violations and freedom of speech) are unrelated to its multiculturalism.

And now about america... its not really as much of a monocultural melting pot as you may assume, when I visited New York City It was all full of Asian writing even though I had never visited its Korea or Chinatowns.

this cultural homogeneity being pushed by the alt-right is bigoted and unhumane.

there actually is a Taiwanese temple in Japan

also showing respect for other cultures is part of multiculturalism

their is also some cathedrals and churches in Japan too.

I think much can be learned from every race.

I think that certain races/cultures/people are better in certain fields than others. So we learn from what we consider to be the best.

Just like everybody wants to learn English, because the English language is pretty much a must.

We can all live together, I never said we couldn't. Just like if I live in another country, I will switch over to that culture in time, because I respect it enough to live there, but I'm obviously still going to keep my identity, and not force it on people.
