The End of Multiculturalism?

John Derbyshire has some provocative speculation for us to consider:

Could American elites dump multiculturalism — the doctrine that any culture is just as good as any other (except of course for the Ice People culture of white Europeans, which is inhuman, oppressive, colonialist, greedy, and cruel)? And could this lead to the prospect... of a turn to racism on the part of our cognitive elites?

I wouldn't rule out either. is an imaginative stretch to conceive of our elites turning against the settled dogma of forty years. Stranger things have happened, though.
