Is Multiculturalism a product of Western civilization?

Reader comment on item: How Fares Western Civ?

Submitted by Vadim Anshelevich (United States), Jul 20, 2020 at 23:45

Quote: Getting down to specifics, Stark ignores the academy's prevailing anti-Western mood and defines modernity as the bundle of advances that define the West. Except for a few "bits and pieces," he dares assert, it "is entirely the product of Western civilization."

Comment: Does Stark acknowledge that Multiculturalism is also a product of Western civilization? It is clearly compatible with and maybe even based the Judeo-Christian idea that all people are created in the image of God, and, hence, "all men are created equal". Maybe Multiculturalism is an inevitable result of the development of Western civilization?
