Title

Opinion "A white multicultural?"

Description

The proceedings of the Multicultural Overnight Visitation Experience (MOVE) is narrated by the writer as they share their opinions on the significance of sharing individuals’ multicultural experiences. The writer shares that they are a white person with no connection to organizations such as NGOMA, Asian Beat, and D-squad and yet thoroughly enjoyed the events and performances that encompassed MOVE. The issue of race is brought up as “reverse discrimination” is viewed as plausible only when, “people of every race (are) placed on a level playing ground.” After speaking to various students who attended the events that night, the conclusion that the writer draws is that although events and organizations surrounding multiculturalism are applauded, the university should move towards creating a more inclusive environment for everyone.
