BP...I don't really count that as a good source of information. It's a blog, full of opinions that have been spun to meet the opinion of the author. Probably wouldn't hold much validity in court.

WHAT?!?!?!

everyone knows blogs are 100% accurate and non-biased!

EXACTLY! HAHA

But still, it seems tons more persuasive than listing the web page of the Sheriff's office and using that as evidence of the makeup of the power base in the city. 

I gave those links because it answered the question given. They wanted information on the school board, plus city government, etc. I gave it. The blog wasn't persuasive to me because as soon as I figured out how opinionated it was, I quit reading it.

Who is the minority then?

What about a place like LA or Miami or San Antone.

in a place majority hispanic, are whites the minority?

these things will be relevant in the coming years...


What, you mean like South Africa?

Well, looking at the percentage of minorities who have a bachelor's degree is depressing, especially when compared to the percentage of white and asian peoples with bachelor's degrees.

i find the whole minority/majority discourse to be skewed and i resent being considered a minority. For one people of African descent make up the majority of the population in the Western hemisphere.And the majority of the world is not white while white people control a disproportionate amount of wealth and resources. i prefer to associate myself with the majority of the non-white world and it is from within that context that i reject being labeled a so-called minority. Minority is also demeaning in the same sense that "Third World" is demeaning, it implies a sense of inferiority regardless if its intened to or not.

huh? how does minority imply inferiority?
blacks, for example, are a minority in the U.S. even if they're a majority in other parts of the world. That's a physical fact, what's offensive about saying that?
