Over 100 members of the Brooklyn tea party recently gathered at the 69th Street Pier in Bay Ridge to rally for, among other things, the concept of "culturism" — which is supposed to be the opposite of "multiculturalism" — because claiming that "all cultures are our friends" endangers America. It's not a racist ideology, though, as the group's president explains: “If this was racism, there would be no hope, because people are not going to change their skin color. But this is culturism. People can change their culture.” Oh, okay. [Brooklyn Ink via City Room/NYT]
