Multiculturalism's Flaw

I was thinking about the multiculturalism movement that is prevalent right now in the U.S. While many of its intentions are noble I feel that it is fundamentally flawed. In an attempt to summarize my thoughts about it I came up with this:

Multiculturalism is flawed because it elevates that which separates us to a higher level than that which unites us.

There is nothing wrong with celebrating our heritage and differences one with another. But it seems there are too many people who have either given up on or never embraced the idea that our common values are where we can draw upon our greatest source of strength as a society.
