@ryan99: look at the map, there's several places where hispanics and black people are a true majority

Last time I checked Majority = more than 50%...
once the largest group is less than 50% there is no Majority...

The "minority" is everyone who is not white. yes, the "Minority" outweighs the "majority", the white people. But the Black population, the Hispanic population, and Asian population, alone do not outnumber the white population.

The term "minority" refers to political influence, not population.

In what universe?

I love Louis CK but this is far from him at his best:
What the stat means is 80 percent of New Yorkers are minorities in terms of the US at large.
Also, just because you put a bunch of smaller groups into a big category called "minorities" it doesn't mean any of those groups isn't a minority. If I have 2 bananas, one orange, one apple and one pineapple, the bananas are still the largest group.
Speaking of which, you should eat more fruit.

Reminds me of a french comedian, Coluche that died in 86, he said :

"There's too many foreigners in the world."

haha yeah... I haven't heard any mexicans in Mexico trying to make a racial distinction based on nationality... maybe racism infects them once they get to the US, the latinos in Vancouver certainly don't seem like they're trying to differentiate like that...

I think it's hilarious that the US Census defines "american" as "hispanic" AND "not-hispanic"

"Latino Americans as a racially diverse ethnicity"

That's politically correct dribble.
They say that because latinos claim there's a differance between guatemalans and niceraguans, and both are differant from panamanians. The nationality is differant, but the racial makeup is the same.

It's like the differance between germans and french. At the end of the day, they're just white guys.

@freddyferret, you mean like in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and everything on top of Florida? Funny ain't it? It almost seems like white people are not really the majority everywhere, yet that's exactly what the joke was saying... ooohhhhh

"That's a leftist view to the first part, and a leftist/racist view to the second."

Nope, that's your view of a leftist view to the first part, and your veiw of a leftist/racist view to the second.

No, all pooled together 80% of the people belong to some minority. It's still not a majority because it's a bunch of small groups. If 80% of the people were Asian or Mexican, THEN it wouldn't be a minority. But a group of Asians, Mexicans, Russians, Greeks, and whatever else is still a bunch of minorities.

Stupid post is stupid, just like the stupid "comedian" (and I use that word very loosely with him) who made the stupid comments.

this is what it says about the classification of "american", if you're confused I don't blame you

The United States Census Bureau also classifies Americans as "Hispanic or Latino" and "Not Hispanic or Latino", which identifies Hispanic and Latino Americans as a racially diverse ethnicity that composes the largest minority group in the nation.

@darkmagic14n I haven't got the slightest clue, it's from wikipedia but the graph itself isn't fully explained.

My best guess is that they've been so mixed up for so long it's hard to tell, making the "race" something different. But that's a stretch from saying that's what it is.

@jendrian:

what does your chart mean by "american"? at first I thought native, but then saw there is a separate one for that...

most of the "african" in the south probably qualify just as much as the whites for 'american', same with most of the rest of the country, with southern border, east and west coast having the only coloration

And that's pretty much the whole story on Louis CK. Stupid dressed up like smart.

@leesah:

same reason blacks aren't nigerian, south african, rwandan, etc; and hispanics aren't mexican, puerto rican, dominican, guatemalan, etc

yes, its a flawed system because, seriously, why does race still matter? if you talk to someone online and you have no idea what race they are, would you feel differently about them if you met them in person?

Here's a handy chart (from wikipedia, based on the US 2000 Census), as to the purpose of the joke, for those who missed it or argue against it. Sure in general it's decidedly mostly white, but it's a white thing to think that's how it is everywhere.

@auburnjunky let's see what that smartass has to say in 2050 when white people are projected to comprise less than half of the US population.

"It said 80% were minorities which would inlude black, hispanic, asian, middle eastern, persian, native american, jewish, immigrants, pacific islanders, etc, etc."

If the other 80% is asian, persian, native american, etc why is the 20% not italian, german, british, etc (& how does jewish/immigrants fit in at all? jews can't be white? immigrants can't be white?). Why just "white" if you're going to break everyone else down more specifically. It's a skewed statistic.

@auburnjunkie; that's exactly what I mean when I say maybe white people have used segregation irresponsibly in the past, and hence lost the privilege to do it... or at least public tolerance to it.

It's for example, we still have women's only stuff, but if you tried to make a men-only gym, it would be called out. That's because men in the past have abused the privilege of segregation against women.

Again, this is all "maybe", "probably", it's just what my only intelligent response was to that question yesterday during a stroll. But the more I think about it the more it makes sense.
