“A fully functional multiracial society cannot be achieved without a sense of history and open, honest dialogue.”

"Minorities"- Controversial issues

Refers to members of minority groups. The term is used to address the controversy with the use of the word minority.[2] Cultural diversity definitions can be as controversial as diversity projects and initiatives. The word minority is an example; it has an academic and colloquial usage. Academics refer to power differences among groups, rather than differences in population size among groups. -

Barzilai (2003)

Feagin (1984) [4] states that a minority group has five characteristics: (1) suffering discrimination and subordination, (2) physical and/or cultural traits that set them apart, and which are disapproved by the dominant group, (3) a shared sense of collective identity and common burdens, (4) socially shared rules about who belongs and who does not determine minority status, and (5) tendency to marry within the group. In South Africa under apartheid, white South Africans were a majority even though there were many more black South Africans.
In the United States, the term majority refers to a group that is larger in population size and controls economic, political, and social resources. Given the shift of people of color growing in size that trends indicate will make them a majority, many argue that white Americans should no longer be considered the majority-SOURCES WIKIPEDIA
Generations after generations, whether your reside in lands of modern day suburbia, or the back streets of ghetto america, one is never far removed from the sense of community.
