Multiculturalism is about recognising the positive in diversity. That multiculturalism, especially in Australia, I think, is about not just recognising but acknowledging we're not a homogenous bunch, that mainstream Australia is not a homogenous bunch, that there's lots of mixes of different types of people and that that's a good thing. And that we don't all need to be the same to be Australian, that Australia by definition we really are a land of migrants, and all the different colours and melting pots is a good thing and that makes a better people and a better society.
