"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Unsurprising. In the small town where I am from, smack in the middle of the USA, about 70% of children under 5 are minorities, and the public school system at the elementary level is over 90% minority.Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood, who was a rabid racist) is probably rolling over in her grave.
I dunno... Reading https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger#Race I wouldn't call her "a rabid racist". Her attitude seems common for the time but she did good work with African-Americans and respected them enough to give them leadership positions: "She did not tolerate bigotry among her staff, nor would she tolerate any refusal to work within interracial projects. Sanger's work with minorities earned praise from Martin Luther King, Jr., in his 1966 acceptance speech for the Margaret Sanger award."
I believe she went above and beyond normal racism for her time. Check out this article:http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/may/5/grossu-margaret-sanger-eugenicist/She just did so carefully, so as to not stir the waters too much.Regarding the 1966 acceptance of that award, Planned Parenthood (who commissioned the award) was, at the time, publicly pro-life. King himself was a proponent of birth control, but likely not a proponent of abortion based on some of his words and the recollection of a few of his family members.
so you are saying that minorities are now a majority? How does that work?
Accumulated minorities groups (multiple) are more numerous than the majority group (singular).Race is an artificial construct, we really need to stop referring to it as a "real" thing. 'Black' people in this country could be from many different African countries or many different areas on the Indian sub-continent. It's a very rudimentary attempt to separate people that are all of the human race.
At this point not minorities but majorities.
