cultural relativism is a reality of course: individualist cultures compared to collectivist cultures for example. But, I’ve too often seen such distinctions enshrined by a new style “great white hunter” who wishes to preserve an ideal they formed in their minds about another culture that might not bear truth to reality. Yet, given an either/or, I would most definitely lean towards multiculturalism – by far. My concern is more of a nuance.
