minorities

All history is a record of the power of minorities, and of minorities of one.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is always the minorities that hold the key of progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Liberalism -- it is well to recall this today -- is the supreme form of generosity; it is the right which the majority concedes to minorities and hence it is the noblest cry that has ever resounded in this planet. It announces the determination to share existence with the enemy; more than that, with an enemy which is weak.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Jews and homosexuals are the outstanding creative minorities in contemporary urban culture. Creative, that is, in the truest sense: they are creators of sensibilities. The two pioneering forces of modern sensibility are Jewish moral seriousness and homosexual aestheticism and irony.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women and minorities have excelled beautifully in comedy, but very few women are the lead in a drama.More [10/06/2006 12:10:00]
Ernst Janning:
There was a fever over the land. A fever of disgrace, of indignity, of hunger. We had a democracy, yes, but it was torn by elements within. Above all, there was fear. Fear of today, fear of tomorrow, fear of our neighbors, and fear of ourselves. Only when you understand that - can you understand what Hitler meant to us. Because he said to us: 'Lift your heads! Be proud to be German! There are devils among us. Communists, Liberals, Jews, Gypsies! Once these devils will be destroyed, your misery will be destroyed.' It was the old, old story of the sacrifical lamb. What about those of us who knew better? We who knew the words were lies and worse than lies? Why did we sit silent? Why did we take part? Because we loved our country! What difference does it make if a few political extremists lose their rights? What difference does it make if a few racial minorities lose their rights? It is only a passing phase. It is only a stage we are going through. It will be discarded sooner or later. Hitler himself will be discarded... sooner or later. The country is in danger. We will march out of the shadows. We will go forward. Forward is the great password. And history tells how well we succeeded, your honor. We succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. The very elements of hate and power about Hitler that mesmerized Germany, mesmerized the world! We found ourselves with sudden powerful allies. Things that had been denied to us as a democracy were open to us now. The world said 'go ahead, take it, take it! Take Sudetenland, take the Rhineland - remilitarize it - take all of Austria, take it! And then one day we looked around and found that we were in an even more terrible danger. The ritual began in this courtoom swept over the land like a raging, roaring disease. What was going to be a passing phase had become the way of life. Your honor, I was content to sit silent during this trial. I was content to tend my roses. I was even content to let counsel try to save my name, until I realized that in order to save it, he would have to raise the specter again. You have seen him do it - he has done it here in this courtroom. He has suggested that the Third Reich worked for the benefit of people. He has suggested that we sterilized men for the welfare of the country. He has suggested that perhaps the old Jew did sleep with the sixteen year old girl, after all. Once more it is being done for love of country. It is not easy to tell the truth; but if there is to be any salvation for Germany, we who know our guilt must admit it... whatever the pain and humiliation.

Reporter:
[Rasmussen shows a video of a crying Derek with his mother talking to a reporter after his father's death] Look I know this is tough. But how do you feel right now?



Derek Vinyard:
How do you think I feel? I think it's typical.



Reporter:
Typical how?



Derek Vinyard:
Well, this country is becoming a haven for criminals so what do you expect? You know, decent hard-working Americans like my dad are getting rubbed out by social parasites.



Reporter:
Parasites?



Derek Vinyard:
Blacks, Browns, Yellow whatever.



Reporter:
I don't understand you're saying that you think maybe your father's murder was race related?



Derek Vinyard:
Yeah it's race related! Every problem in this country is race related not just crime. It's like... immigration, AIDS, welfare those are problems in them. The Black community, the Hispanic community, the Asian community, they're not white problems.



Reporter:
Derek, are those really issues that deal with poverty?



Derek Vinyard:
No. You know, no. They're not products of the environment either that's crap. Minorities don't give two shits about this country, they've come here to exploit it not to embrace it.



Reporter:
What does this...



Derek Vinyard:
I mean millions of white European Americans came here and flourished you know within a generation so what the fuck is the matter with these jewlates going around shooting a... fireman?


[cries]



Reporter:
What does this have to do with the murder of your father?



Derek Vinyard:
Because my father was murdered doing his job! Putting out a fire in fucking Nigger neighborhood. He shouldn't be giving a shit about. He got shot by a fucking drug dealer who probably still collects a welfare check!

Gun Safety Instructor:
Remember, guns don't kill people. Dangerous minorities do.

Jerry Falk:
Just how crazy are you huh? Is there more? Do you hear voices on the radio or worship snakes?



David Dobel:
You are a member of one of the most persecuted minorities in history. The rifle's on me.

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).More [07/01/2011 06:07:47]
I think it is the weak and the young and the minorities that you need to look after to get a healthy creative environment - to get a lot of choices, a lot of different styles of music, a lot experimental stuff that everyone else feeds off.More [08/15/2011 05:08:50]
When you use the term minority or minorities in reference to people, you're telling them that they're less than somebody else.More [04/16/2012 06:04:10]
But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.More [06/07/2012 06:06:03]
There is a fundamental reason why this separation should be maintained: if it is not, there can arise a tyranny of one sect, one code of belief. And in such a tyranny, religious minorities will suffer institutionalized degradation of their integrity.More [09/30/2012 05:09:10]
In the lexicon of sexual minorities for one swearword less.More [07/02/2016 01:07:36]
Canadians tend to be a bit more religious than most Europeans - though not more than the Poles or Ukrainians. Most important, their attitude to immigration and ethnic minorities is more positive than that of most Europeans.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The reason that minorities and women don't have a better shot at getting elected to the Senate or to statewide office is because the campaign finance rules are so skewed as to make it very difficult for non-traditional candidates to raise the money necessary to get elected.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
One great object of the Constitution was to restrain majorities from oppressing minorities or encroaching upon their just rights.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
There's a very big gulf between the black civil rights leadership in America and the black middle class in America. The black middle class are conservative. Many of those minorities can be persuaded to be members of the Republican Party.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In the melting pot that is America, inclusive trumps exclusive. Whether it's single women, young adults, or minorities, alienating the rapidly growing voting blocs is not smart politics.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
George W. Bush brought a lot of minorities into his administration, which was a positive thing, and they had some issues that they wanted to press, but 9/11 really gave them direction. It gave them a purpose.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The Left is doing to America what it has done to almost everything it has deeply influenced - the arts, the university, religion, culture, minorities, Europe: ruining it.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I would argue that we have a generation of young people, particularly minorities, who are no longer putting up with the kinds of things their parents put up with. They're much more self-confident. It's no longer acceptable to make fun of people because of race or sex. But it has always been present in American society.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When you look at where the real problems are among minorities in our society, particularly blacks, it's at the bottom. It's the people who are in school systems that don't educate, neighborhoods where there is a lot of crime, drugs, the whole bit.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Governments exist to protect the rights of minorities. The loved and the rich need no protection: they have many friends and few enemies.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Fifty-one percent of a nation can establish a totalitarian regime, suppress minorities and still remain democratic.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is maintained that a society is free only when dissenting minorities have room to throw their weight around. As a matter of fact, a dissenting minority feels free only when it can impose its will on the majority: what it abominates most is the dissent of the majority.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Minorities are the stars of the firmament; majorities, the darkness in which they float.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Disparities in the health care delivered to racial and ethnic minorities are real and are associated with worse outcomes in many cases, which is unacceptable.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our study documents a knowledge gap between racial/ethnic minorities and whites regarding stroke warning signs. It is paradoxical that racial and ethnic minorities at highest risk were least aware. As with heart attack, it is critical that women at risk for stroke know the warning signs because delayed treatment can lead to greater disability or death.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we're so cruel to minorities, why do they keep coming here? Why aren't they sneaking across the Mexican border to make their way to the Taliban?More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have a president who stole the presidency through family ties, arrogance and intimidation, employing Republican operatives to exercise the tactics of voter fraud by disenfranchising thousands of blacks, elderly Jews and other minorities.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some people look like neo-nazis or skinheads, but do not have the same ideology of hatred. They would not attack minorities and single them out.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think when you attack somebody because of their race, religion or sex, it's really a crime against a class of people. Whenever you have minorities beat up ... it's intended to create fear in a community and it needs to be treated with an extra penalty to deter that,More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We also know that the death penalty is not only flawed, but is disproportionately applied to minorities and the poor.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All else being equal, the president would go for diversity. Women and minorities will be among the candidates considered,More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most ambitious goals in the history of the commonwealth is hiring minorities and women. We don't have a quota or goals for hiring (gays and lesbians) because they have a different lifestyle, so there is no discrimination in hiring because we don't ask.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have all along been espousing the cause of the minorities and are truly concerned about their welfare unlike the Congress which uses the community as a vote bank and then forgets about it after the elections.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm actually part of a number of minorities. I grew up being a horribly awkward kid. A terrible student. And now I find myself as a filmmaker, and you feel kind of alone in the world because you're separate from everyone else.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Racial discrimination reared its ugly head. Landlords refused to show their properties to minorities.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think that white women are more apt to read laterally. So I think there's some strong identification for women, and their political and social positions, and minorities. I think that the political power of, let's say, the average Indian man and a white woman are pretty equal.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Low-income people, racial or ethnic minorities, pregnant women, seniors, people with special needs, people in rural areas - they all have a much harder time accessing a dentist than other groups of Americans.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the 20th century, the Muslim world created a vision of religious nationalism. Turkey, for example, had to be ethnically Turkish. Kurds, Armenians, other minorities didn't have a place in such a vision of a nation-state.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The funniest racism is the racism between minorities. It's something you don't see dramatized, but almost every minority I know who's my age, they have these funny stories about their parents stereotyping other minorities.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I would argue that we have a generation of young people, particularly minorities, who are no longer putting up with the kinds of things their parents put up with. They're much more self-confident. It's no longer acceptable to make fun of people because of race or sex. But it has always been present in American society.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now let's take up the minorities in our civilisation, shall we? Bigger the population, the more minorities. Don't step on the toes of the dog-lovers, the cat-lovers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, chiefs, Mormons, Baptists, Unitarians, second-generation Chinese, Swedes, Italians, Germans, Texans, Brooklynites, Irishmen, people from Oregon or Mexico. The people in this book, this play, this TV serial are not meant to represent any actual painters, cartographers, mechanics anywhere. The bigger your market, Montag, the lessMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the melting pot that is America, inclusive trumps exclusive. Whether it's single women, young adults, or minorities, alienating the rapidly growing voting blocs is not smart politics.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Majorities and minorities cannot rightfully be taken at all into account in deciding questions of justice.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Majorities, as such, afford no guarantees for justice. They are men of the same nature as minorities. They have the same passions for fame, power, and money, as minorities; and are liable and likely to be equally - perhaps more than equally, because more boldly - rapacious, tyrannical and unprincipled, if intrusted with power.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To say that majorities, as such, have a right to rule minorities, is equivalent to saying that minorities have, and ought to have, no rights, except such as majorities please to allow them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Jews are the living embodiment of the minority, the constant reminder of what duties societies owe their minorities, whoever they might be.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you use the term minority or minorities in reference to people, you're telling them that they're less than somebody else.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
