Originally published in hetrerodoxy magazine, and posted on Front Page magazine in January, 2004, with an editor's note by David Horowitz, "How the Ford Foundation Created Multiculturalism", sub-titled,"Wherever there's a pernicious development in America's intellectual climate, Ford is 'present at the creation'."
The article begins with a quote by David Horowitz of FrontPage Magazine:
Editor’s Note: One of the largest and most dangerous concentrations of unchecked power in the United States is the Ford Foundation with discretionary spending power that rivals that of government. It is spending power moreover, for the political left and often the hard left. As a public service Frontpage Magazine is devoting a series of articles to the malign influence of Ford. The story posted below, which originally appeared in Heterodoxy magazine, reveals Ford’s crucial role in creating the ideological movement called “multiculturalism” in our universities. -- David Horowitz.
