Brooklyn Tea Party Strives for ‘Culturalism’


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]
