So is Canada.
I don't think this is a topic to just let go as ignoring the problem simply condones social and structural racism. So long as there are Aboriginals and immigration, there will be problems to resolve, and although ideally we would address them with a win-win perspective, this isn't always going to be the case. It is an issue worth talking about if we are going to reach that win-win ideal, however.
It isn't always a 'in your face, this is war!' kind of discussion. On one of the professional listservs I subscribe to, librarians and library directors are discussing how they can acknowledge the Christmas holidays without alienating other demographics that don't celebrate the season religiously or culturally. The goal is to make everyone welcome without making the library completely neutral by simply not celebrating any holiday.
Well, some librarians do think that the library ought to be neutral. That sort of seems dull to me though.
