Black Teachers for Black Studies?: A Philosophical Critique of Multiculturalist Pedagogy
By Max Hocutt
This article appeared in the Summer 2004 issue of The Independent Review


Multiculturalists maintain that there is no such thing as truth, only diverse opinions, each “true” in the opinion of the person or group that holds it, none true absolutely. The increasingly popular notion that instead of simple, universal truth, there is only “white truth” and “black truth,” “female truth” and “male truth,” “gay truth” and “straight truth,” threatens the integrity of American universities, which had been distinguished by their commitment to discovering and disseminating truth without trimming it to suit special-interest groups.
