Minority
    #4051524 - 04/13/05 07:01 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

This term pisses me off to no end. Why do people use it? When people say "I'm a minority" it makes me want to slap them. Are you living in a jungle where there are more apes than humans? No? Then you are NOT a fucking minority. You are a human being, and there are plenty of us on this planet. Whether you are hispanic, asian, white, black, middle eastern, whatever, you are NOT a minority no matter what. It pisses me off when people try to use this as an excuse for something, or try to capitalize off of it. Labeling as a minority pushes us further and further apart from being one HUMAN race.

but really, i feel the same exact way.

excuses excuses.

very rarely do i see any real type of discrimination, accept when its someone discriminating against themselves

(this is not to say that racism doesnt exist, but that it is an underground phenomenon... greatly frowned upon by mainstream society so it must stay below the surface)

modern racism happens when you say "i deserve better than you because of my skin color"

i am half mexican, and i know what its like to be looked down upon by caucasian people, even though i was rasied in a predominantly caucasian manner.

but the most hurt comes from taking sides, when you band together you are creaing oposing forces...

it is a difficult subject, but i understand it thouroughly

If the majority of the "human race" rejects you because you are different, you might feel like a minority.

Not all use it as an excuse or to capitalize off of it.

Many people are rejected from the majority and that rubs the minority thing in. It's not seldom the majority who persecute the minority.

Take homos. They are a minority among hispanic, asian, white, black, middle eastern you name it, but the majority of those groups push them away when often all they want to do is belong.
And not seldom they are beat up or kicked out of the family because they are minorities. And indeed: there's no excuse for that.
