What is black empowerment when it seems to benefit not the vast majority but an elite that tends to be recycled?
There are lots of research, of course, saying that a vast majority of us have been exposed to racial biases and stereotypes and, to some extent, we’ve internalized them, because that’s so ubiquitous. That’s why I’m so bored with the conversation about who’s a racist and who’s not.
It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.
Demonstrations must be dignified and nonviolent, as the overwhelming protests in Ferguson and Staten Island have been. Do not confuse anarchists who don’t want the system to work and thugs who want to exploit a situation with the majority who from day one have operated with impeccable nonviolence and clear goals.
Popular culture is simply a reflection of what the majority seems to want.
The large majority of the Negroes who have put on the finishing touches of our best colleges are all but worthless in the development of their people.
The majority of Americans, the ones who never elected George W. Bush, are not fooled by his weapons of mass distraction.
A country can truly call itself sporting when the majority of its people feel a personal need for sport.
With the parties at virtual parity and the ideological gulf between them never greater, the stakes of majority control of Congress are extremely high.
Neither current events nor history show that the majority rule, or ever did rule.
