me the other day. It said
at 80 greent of the people
in New ork are minorities.
Shouldnt you not call them

its because these people dont belong to one minority, but to different ones. so, white people are like 20 % but that doesnt mean that black people are more than that. there are hispanic, mexican, etc too

That is true, however, the point remains. If 80% of the population is made up of various minority groups, then 20% of the population is white. 20% is less than 50%, so it is also a minority. Treating whites as the "majority" when they are only 20% (even if that's the largest group) based on a caucasian-centric way of thinking. In this situation, it would be accurate to say "There is no longer a majority" or "everyone is a minority," not that all non whites are still the minorities.

the majority can also mean that it is the biggest group, eventhough its under 50%.

It's actually called a plurality in that case, but it's still distinct from a minority yes.

You go tell a Dominican or Puerto Rican they're the same thing as a mexican, see how that turns out.

Hispanic refers to all people of Spanish speaking countries, so Dominicans and Puerto Ricans and Mexicans are all Hispanic

Right, but they refuse to associate with each other to the point where they consider themselves separate minority groups in surveys.

I've never seen a survey that had different Hispanic groups separated, they always have Hispanic/Latino part and then a list of several things that fall under that like Puerto Rican, Mexican, etc.

Then we need to use the opposite of "plurality", instead of the opposite of "minority" to refer to white people.

This is true, there could be 8 other cultural groups maintaining 10% each....but Louis CK could say anything and still be ******* hilarious.

could also be that they're a member of a group that, while locally the majority, are nationally a minority group.

I love Luis C.K. a lot of his political humor is dead on . But does anyone else get the feeling hes a hypocrite? Like, he acts like people who use "hilarious" or "bored" are complete retards, but i gurantee he's done the same thing. Some of his jokes even go towards that "hurr durr murica is dumb" kind of humor. Although he has valid points sometimes, he mostly uses technicalities or misplaced logic to back up his arguments.

He regularly points to his own hypocrisy both in his stand up and on his stellar FX show. He's even admitted once that his bit about the guy on the airplane complaining about the wifi he just learned about being down was in real life, him. He's no paragon of morality; he merely tells us truths that we didn't know we knew.

**anonymous rolled image** He acts like that, what do you think happens when he says stuff like that, that's the expression everyone gets of him. That what he wants, and then "im just joking, lol"?. A*hole. His tv series is even worse, "omg, i don't know anything, i don't say anything, look how everything is hard to explain", and then he f...ckin say things like it's absolute truth, all is black and white. F..k him. Another manipulative b*tch for his own profit.

No I totally agree. A lot of his jokes are just musings and observations, without much of an actual punchline or anything.

If you've ever taken a class on sociology or race relations or whatever you'd know that minorities and subordinate groups are not referred to as such because of how many of them there are, but their power and influence.

The paper might be comparing to the entire population, and not just the population in NYC.

I don't see the issue here...what exactly are you pointing at?   
   
1) Are you stating that 80% is not a majority...in anything?   
2) Are you stating that 80% is in reference to the whole Earth...in which case, that's silly because he obviously read that it was a number based in NY.   
   
I really don't get what you're trying to argue here.

No he's stating that 80% of NYC's population in comparison to the US could be minorities based on the idea that when you're calculating the majority of a population you don't do it based on a single city, district or section but rather the whole population meaning a newspaper published across the US would be implying the majority is based on the US population. TBH it's kind of a lame joke because it's entirely based on purposely misinterpreting a rather straightforward and obvious statement.

It could also be a of different minorities with each consisting of less than 20% of the NYC population. In that case none of the minorities be bigger than the 20% (assumed) caucassion population.

but in our enlightened country, minorities automatically deserve preferential treatment. as soon as you stop calling non white type people "minorities" then they stop getting special regards, and wouldn't it defeat the whole premise that "all men are created equal" if we were to treat everyone equally?

That means that each race, when counted separately, is a minority to whites caucasians.

Fun fact Caucasians are only white people who come from the Caucus mountain range area of Eurasia. That's why the U.S. census says "White" instead of "Caucasian". Most of the time governments will do this because being Caucasian is a very specific ethnicity and they don't want to separate "White" into different ethnic groups. Also you ****** up the quote by dis-including certain words which were included by L.C.K to express a certain accent, by dis-including these words, you have failed to quote him and should not have quotation marks around the speech.
