Multiculturalism is the condition of different groups of cultures together in one society, usually due to immigrant communities or when a society advocates this condition.  Supporters claim that multiculturalism enhances society; however, critics more often are those that actually use this term.

Critics claim that multiculturalism results in a loss of national identity.  Also, some cultures don't mix together they claim.  In addition, it can encourage subcultures that are not positive to society.  Multiculturalism itself is sometimes seen as a paradox.  It is in itself a cultural value particular to the West.  Some cultures are not tolerant of other cultures, so forcing them to respect these other cultures is actually not respecting them.
