For peoples whose felony agreements, treaties, and different accords and conventions with the U.S. were violated, multiculturalism as a pedagogical instrument usually turns into suspect of reinforcing the continuing reification and abstraction in their cultures and countries with little if any actual which means for academic and social transformation. the ongoing oppression and repression of the workout of self-determination for African american citizens; the patience of regulations geared toward the destruction of indigenous populations and land; the insidious continuation of classical colonialism with regards to Puerto Rico are all vibrant reminders to those peoples of the racist, classist, sexist, and homophobic patriarchy that characterizes their prestige. with the intention to restoration people's rights to totally ascertain their very own histories, Jackson and Solis indicate that it's valuable to break the fabric foundations that breed and recycle the ideology, discourse, and cultural practices of domination. it's not adequate to have a good time variety and distinction; there has to be grand-scale social, political, financial, and academic transformation.
