5205: Happy Anniversary.
On March 6, MultiCultClassics marked its 3rd anniversary. While this blog has not traditionally called out these events, it seemed appropriate to type a few statements.
First and foremost, thanks to all who have visited over the years. Special appreciation to everyone and anyone who has helped hype the blog, whether through word of mouse, linking posts, supplemental reporting and more.
MultiCultClassics has always been dedicated to presenting cultural news, insights and perspectives, hoping to ultimately enlighten and entertain. On occasion, the blog has undoubtedly managed to annoy and enrage as well. Issues involving diversity and culture tend to be emotionally charged, and confronting them can become explosive. If it appears a MultiCultClassics response is overly aggressive, well, it’s somewhat deliberate. After all, when an industry leader says or does something culturally controversial, they are usually at an advantage. That is, they likely have a national platform or large audience of supporters. Or the leaders’ opinions might be deemed correct or valid based on their status in the field. As a result, MultiCultClassics feels compelled to present counterpoints with enough force to break through any established biases. The global objective is to communicate there are other angles to consider.

Thanks again and all the best.
