Aren't all humans not living in Africa foreign? There is some suggestion amongst certain scientists that Africa may have been reinvaded by a race from Australia.

It would be interesting to name a country in the world that is not multicultural. Ireland seems to be the least Multicultural that I can think of. Apart from that, it's difficult to think of one major city in the world that is not multicultural in some way.

Iceland is another possible example, but even Iceland started off with approximately half and half Vikings and Irish.

China is one of the most multicultural countries in the world, and the RMB (Yuan) is inscribed in Uyghur and Sogdian script as well as Hanzi.

I guess I'll go with undecided.

Because I don't mind multiculturalism. I just don't like it being forced upon me.

Like.. I personally don't like Jews and Asians. Especially the former. The latter I just don't like their governments and vicarously through that I blame the oriental people.

Now, that doesn't mean I'd want to set laws telling Jews/Asians they can't open up a bar, or live in my neighborhood, or even date my daughter. (Assuming they weren't a choicer, I don't negotiate abortion)

I just happen to not trust Asians/Jews. And I'm entitled to that mistrust.

So do I support multi-culturalism as in, respect everyone and try to learn more about others? Hell no.

But do I want everyone to be like me? Hell no. If everyone were like me you'd have to re-name the country Mad Max.

I support multiculturalism for the simple reason of "why not?" In a truly free country, why shouldn't people from different lands and different cultures be able to come here and enjoy our freedoms and liberties?

I said no and for the simplest of reasons, it doesn't work. It never has and it never will.

So you said no - and that's the end of it is it Swathe?  It has worked reasonably well and it's only occasionally we have problems with minority groups - but because the media immediately focuses on them, it takes attention away from our own thugs.

The only reason we should put a stop to immigration is because we've got enough people here already.  Australia has already got a reputation as a narrowly focussed racist country, and if we didn't have a bit of diversity we would be a lot worse.

One of the posters here believes we should have focussed on integration, not multiculturalism - but they are basically the same, except multiculturalism asks us to meet new Australians half way.

No matter what it's called there will always be small groups who won't assimilate, but that's just the way it is and there's not a thing you can do about it.

On the surface it may appear to work "reasonably well", but that is it. Multiculturalism is glammed up by the politicians, media and left wing groups. Many Australians who are happy with the ideal of multiculturalism can still see that it does not work as it is supposed too. I am not so ignorant to believe we don't have our own trash that commit crimes also,  and I believe we should punish them harshly also.

Minority groups are only that by physical numbers. Many of them have a political voice that is louder and listened to more than the common man. Race/class and religion are all factors here and if they don't want to integrate fully they should go. Even then, they should go home and help their country rather than come here, drag their families here and then cry about a country they never stayed to help. Why would we want traitors coming here?

Yes well that is true to an extent.  First and foremost - allegiance should be sworn to this country by any migrant and an oath made to defend this country under any circumstances, but you've got Howard to thank for bringing in dual citizenship in 2001 where migrants can return to their country of origin at a whim or to fight in wars of other nations, regardless of whose side they're on.
