"Cultural enrichment" is often used to refer to crimes like rape or robbery when the suspect or assailant is from a religious or ethnic minority group.

Cultural Marxism: A catch-all label that the far right uses for most things they oppose, such as gender equality, anti-racism, support for Muslims' civil rights and Affirmative Action.
