I just came across this interesting article and wanted to know some of your opinions. Here's an excerpt:


"As a member of the White group, what responsibility do you hold for the racist, oppressive, and discriminating manner by which you personally and professionally deal with minorities?" asks a popular textbook for psychotherapists, Counseling the Culturally Different.

This racial inquisition is one sample of a disturbing new movement in the mental health field. Called "cultural competence" or "multicultural therapy," this movement threatens to discredit traditional therapy and replace it with identity politics. In its most radical form, multicultural therapy holds that human behavior is primarily culture-dependent, that doctors and patients will always experience mistrust and miscommunication if they are of different racial or ethnic groups, and that white therapists should be presumed racist.
