Famous quotes containing the word minorities:

    All history is a record of the power of minorities, and of minorities of one.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We cannot discuss the state of our minorities until we first have some sense of what we are, who we are, what our goals are, and what we take life to be. The question is not what we can do now for the hypothetical Mexican, the hypothetical Negro. The question is what we really want out of life, for ourselves, what we think is real.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)

    But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
