Summary
From Melting Pot to Witch's Cauldron explores what can happen when good intentions go askew. Ernesto Caravantes points out that the original wishes of the founders of the American Republic, as well as the desires of modern luminaries like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Cesar Chavez, have not been realized. Caravantes traces this problem to the radical activism of the 1960s, which introduced the notion of multiculturalism. In so doing, that activism completely erased all chances of seeing the dreams of these activists being brought into fruition. The author points out that the true and original aim of the multiculturalism movement was to have people of divergent ethnic backgrounds become unified by their differences, yet what is occurring is just the opposite - xenophobia and ethno-centrism have developed among the different ethnic groups in the United States. This book is a must-read for students of multicultural studies in colleges and universities
