Excerpt: "Multiculturalism should be about confronting racism and power, not about plates of ethnic food...it seemed to me we spent so much time talking about kimchee and grits, we forgot to talk about power. But the agent only whispered to me, 'Class analysis isn't quite as sexy as a grinning mulatto on a golf course.' He even admitted to me that multiracialism was a terrific marketing tool, the best way to sell to as many types of people as possible. 'It's ingenious!' he shouted, grinning, carried away by his own ideas. 'This will change the face of marketing forever!'" ~Danzy Senna
