This chapter discusses neoliberal multiculturalism in the context of global racial formation. Neoliberal multiculturalism refers to the devaluing of the native culture and bringing in multiple cultures into a community/country. The concept of neoliberal multiculturalism is derived from the notion of differentiated citizenship, or the idea that citizenship in every country around the world is not the same; thus, the state should institutionalize the identification of different cultures by providing a framework for racial equality focused on cultural integration, and the full acceptance of other people of different race to portray the equality of the free market and capital that flows across national boundaries.

Keywords:   neoliberal multiculturalism, literary value, racial equality, free market and capital, cultural identity
