John McCain
Minorities often feel like they are on the outside looking in when it comes to the Valley and tech start-ups in general.
Michael Seibel

Mitt Romney

Ben Sasse
The CAA is not a law to remove someone from the country. Union home minister Amit Shah has said that it is to give citizenship. And I agree with it to that extent. It is to give citizenship to persecuted minorities from neighbouring countries and not to remove anyone from the country.
Uddhav Thackeray

Asma Jahangir
There's a viewpoint that says, 'I can fight for minorit

There’s a viewpoint that says, ‘I can fight for minorities, and I can fight for women,’ and if you get that, you make up a vast majority of the voting block, and you win. And white males have been left aside a little bit in the politics of who speaks to them.
Sean Duffy
Low-income people, racial or ethnic minorities, pregnant women, seniors, people with special needs, people in rural areas – they all have a much harder time accessing a dentist than other groups of Americans.

Owen Jones

Ryan Murphy
The appeal of conservatism is the mutuality it asserts between individual and political freedom, its beautiful idea of a free man in a free society. And it offers minorities the one thing they can never get from liberalism: human rather than racial dignity.

For that matter, will ‘religious freedom’ be used as an excuse to discriminate against other minorities and disenfranchised groups across the board? Where will it end?
Al Sharpton
Normalising the term ‘white privilege’ does not eliminate racism, it reinforces the notion that everyone and everything around ethnic minorities is racist and makes the majority white population more conscious about their race and exacerbates feelings of difference, creating a less cohesive society.
Kemi Badenoch
I’ve been extremely lucky in that I’ve been able to play roles that are not defined by their ethnicity. But that’s not a common thing for people of ethnic minorities.

Sherman Alexie
The Supreme Court 2013 ruling that gutted the 1965 Voting Rights Act set in motion what many feared: the subjection of minorities, seniors, and low-income Americans to unfair, punitive barriers preventing them from exercising their most basic right as American citizens.

Timothy Garton Ash
I would argue that we have a generation of young people, particularly minorities, who are no longer putting up with the kinds of things their parents put up with. They’re much more self-confident. It’s no longer acceptable to make fun of people because of race or sex. But it has always been present in American society.
Donna Shalala
It’s a very bad thing when people exterminate other people, and people persecute minorities.
Paul Wolfowitz
It is hard to imagine an area in which Congress has more express constitutional authority to act than in protecting the right of minorities to vote.

It’s troubling that by eliminating weekend voting hours, the state of Ohio specifically banned a popular voting time of choice for minorities. In Cuyahoga County, which I represent, 56 percent of weekend voters in 2008 were African American while adult African Americans comprise 28 percent of the county population.
Marcia Fudge
It’s not good enough to say we value diversity and then underrepresent women and minorities.

I’m hoping to see some minorities in executive offices in positions of power, people who see the merit of projects with minority themes. That may or may not happen.
Bill Duke

Katharine Viner
There is a profound hypocrisy - and deep historical ign

There is a profound hypocrisy – and deep historical ignorance – when Europeans complain about the problems posed by the ethnic and religious minorities in their midst, for that is exactly what European colonial rule meant for peoples around the world.
Martin Jacques
In contrast to them, Republicans argue, are minorities, organized workers, and women, who demand government policies that can only be paid for with tax dollars sucked from white men.
Heather Cox Richardson
Even after women got the vote in 1920, the idea that they stood for home and family helped to keep them from being seen as politically dangerous in the way that working men and male minorities were.
Heather Cox Richardson
When you look at where the real problems are among minorities in our society, particularly blacks, it’s at the bottom. It’s the people who are in school systems that don’t educate, neighborhoods where there is a lot of crime, drugs, the whole bit.
Clarence Thomas
When the Left doesn’t want to make abortion the issue, they say you’re being against minorities.
Trent Franks
Americans are right to believe the American Dream is fading.

Stephanie Coontz
Every time I speak up about anything to do with women or ethnic minorities, hundreds of messages pour in to attempt to silence or frighten me.

Margot Lee Shetterly
Minorities within nation-states frayed by global capitalism are naturally more resentful of hollowed-out but still heavily centralised systems of political and economic domination.

Lysander Spooner
Millennials, minorities, women – until we can connect with those populations, we’re going to have some difficulty electorally.
Mitt Romney
The poor and minorities are disproportionately both crime’s perpetrators and its victims. People are saddened when this happens but not surprised.
S. J. Rozan

Rumaan Alam
I would say that normally it is the creative minorities that determine the future, and in this sense, the Catholic Church must understand itself as a creative minority that has a heritage of values that are not things of the past, but a very living and relevant reality.
Pope Benedict XVI
The majority of Espanyol supporters are polite, but there are always rowdy minorities.
Gerard Pique

India is a land of minorities. Everyone belongs to some minority.
Prashant Bhushan
George W. Bush brought a lot of minorities into his administration, which was a positive thing, and they had some issues that they wanted to press, but 9/11 really gave them direction. It gave them a purpose.
Josh Brolin
If you don’t have respect for immigrants, or you don’t have respect for minorities, or you don’t have respect for women, it’s gonna be very difficult for you to understand why the other side needs to be treated fairly.
I wish there was more for minorities than sitcoms. I’d like to see a soap opera about blacks. People don’t live in isolation anymore.
Roxie Roker
The makers always wanted the movie to be diverse because ‘Deadpool’ takes place in the ‘X-Men’ universe. The mutants are kind of outcast, the minorities as compared to human race. They recognized it well that the cast needs to be diverse.
Karan Soni
I’d like to open doors for underserved communities and minorities in entrepreneurship.
Troy Carter
Since the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954, Movement Conservatives have tapped into the idea that an activist government redistributed wealth to lazy minorities. But they have also pushed hard on the idea that true Americans are Western individualists.
Heather Cox Richardson
The argument on the other side of special rights is completely bogus. It’s bogus because you could make exactly the same claim about racial or ethnic or religious minorities.
Tom Allen
As somebody who happens to be gay, I particularly resent that minorities are being encouraged to be fragile and bitter.
Andy Ngo
I support the recommendations made by the International Crisis Group. The primary responsibility is for Kosovo Albanians to demonstrate that their treatment of minorities is adequate.
Emma Bonino
There’s a very big gulf between the black civil rights leadership in America and the black middle class in America. The black middle class are conservative. Many of those minorities can be persuaded to be members of the Republican Party.
Pete du Pont
It doesn’t matter what the colour of your skin is, your sexual preference, the region where you were born, your gender. We’re all equal… We can’t take certain minorities and think they have super powers and are different from the others.

People don't realize how black people, minorities, wome

Raoul Peck
Look at television and how comparatively few minorities are out there.
Gedde Watanabe
BJP has traditionally been against backward communities and minorities.

Thomas Sowell
Of strong importance to me is the defense of minority rights, not just racial minorities, but ideological and religious minorities.
Rand Paul
It’s hard for men sometimes to talk about feminism, just as it’s hard for people who aren’t from ethnic minorities to talk about racial prejudice. It’s a difficult conversation to have, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have it.
O. T. Fagbenle
After all we have been through, blacks and other minorities deserve to be protected, as anyone else.
Loretta Lynch

On some of the key issues where Asians struggle alongside other minorities, as far as the media and the American public are concerned, Asians remain unseen.
Alex Wagner

Robert Kennedy
American Christians are quite able to organize around issues that concern them. Yet religious persecution appears not to have grabbed their attention, despite worldwide media coverage of the atrocities against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.
Kirsten Powers
Elites want to cut taxes and stop government regulation of business. Evangelicals want to make America a Christian nation. And alt-right voters want to purge the rights of minorities and women.
Heather Cox Richardson
When counterterrorist policies are used to suppress peaceful protests and legitimate opposition movements, shut down debate, target human rights defenders, or stigmatize minorities, they fail, and we all lose. Indeed, such responses may cause further resentment and instability and contribute to radicalization.
Antonio Guterres
Russia wants stability along its Western borders, neighbors who treat their Russian minorities with respect and prosperous trading partners. NATO enlargement promotes such developments.
Antony Blinken
Nobody, in my lifetime, in either party, has reached out with a message of hope, growth and opportunity to minorities better than Jack Kemp.
Lawrence Kudlow
Social media has been such a big important thing for young artists and minorities because it’s a community to get noticed. It’s having an audience that was never there before.

Cenk Uygur
In the 20th century, the Muslim world created a vision of religious nationalism. Turkey, for example, had to be ethnically Turkish. Kurds, Armenians, other minorities didn’t have a place in such a vision of a nation-state.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
The respect for the rights of minorities that China’s Tibetan and Uighur activists champion would prevent instability that could spill across China’s borders.
Tom Malinowski

Emma Bonino
We should always care for the minorities and be attentive towards their welfare.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
The reason that minorities and women don’t have a better shot at getting elected to the Senate or to statewide office is because the campaign finance rules are so skewed as to make it very difficult for non-traditional candidates to raise the money necessary to get elected.
Carol Moseley Braun
If you are white, racism is too easily ignored and forgiven, regarded as of burning concern only to the ethnic minorities, and therefore of relatively marginal significance.
Martin Jacques
As Canadians who proudly demand the equal treatment of minorities, religious freedom, gender equality and basic human rights for its citizens – allowing our political leaders to shamefully ignore these values in the name of business abroad, falls short of the high standard we rightfully set for ourselves.
Jagmeet Singh
I remember thinking Democrats and liberals were the good guys. They cared about the little guy. They cared about poor people. They cared about minorities.
Dave Rubin
When you use the term minority or minorities in reference to people, you’re telling them that they’re less than somebody else.
Gwendolyn Brooks
A lot of racism is paternalism. A lot of people hide their own racism because they treat blacks, minorities and other groups like children because deep down they feel superior and better than these people. And they don’t feel like they should just treat a guy like a guy.
Jim Norton
Christians, Yezidis, and other religious minorities have every right to remain in their ancestral homelands.
Jeff Fortenberry
While nothing is perfect or complete in the battle for civil rights, the efforts of Dr. King and those like him have in fact, changed the country and the world for the better in noticeable ways. His vision has made the world a more equal place, and if not equal, it has helped to ensure that minorities have a voice.
Skai Jackson
As you think about the workforce of the future, women a

As you think about the workforce of the future, women and minorities are such an important part of that future.
Cathy Engelbert
I think dementia is the major healthcare threat to our economy and our security. It’s a ticking time bomb – we have a whole generation of baby boomers that are going to age, many progressing to get Alzheimer’s – which disproportionately affects women and minorities.
Vivek Ramaswamy
The Internet has done so much for so many. It allows women and minorities to have access to education, training, and information that sometimes isn’t available to them for whatever reason.
Brianna Wu
Minorities do not believe this country will give them a fair shake.
Cory Booker
Rent-to-own provides a vital service to millions of Americans. It is also critical for African-Americans, Latinos and other minorities to have access to alternative products and services, such as rent-to-own.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
The drug war has been a war where the direct casualties have primarily been America’s poor; America’s minorities; and often, unfortunately, America’s vulnerable, in terms of people with disease and addiction and mental health.
Cory Booker
We need not wait for further, well-placed home video cameras to see that low-intensity warfare is being waged against low-income minorities. We need only listen to the voices of the poor; they can testify that they are dehumanized, disparaged, and despised by the police.
Greg Boyle
If it’s hard for Blue America to see Red America as anything other than a bunch of dumb, racist rednecks; it’s hard for Red America to recognize that many minorities are legitimately worried about what a Trump presidency means for their family.
J. D. Vance
All Bangladeshi citizens, including minorities and women, must feel safe and confident in exercising their right to vote.
Antonio Guterres
I admire identity politics for raising the fact that there are terrible and constant microaggressions against all minorities.

Showing variety in representation in casting is super important, it gives minorities a platform and I think it definitely creates a safe space for conversation and progress.
Violet Chachki
In America, the problems of poverty and low income, particularly for minorities, are disproportionately focused in the inner cities. Shining a spotlight on the businesses growing in these communities is proof that any community has the potential for entrepreneurship.
Michael Porter
Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).
Ayn Rand
Restoring the rights of individuals who have served their time and reentered society is the right thing to do. Virginia’s felon disenfranchisement policy is rooted in a tragic history of voter suppression and marginalization of minorities, and it needs to be overturned.
Terry McAuliffe
I think the biggest problem of the 21st century is how to deal with minorities.
Avigdor Lieberman

Harold Washington
The DNC says they want minorities to run for office but when they actually do, we don’t get the support that we need and deserve.

Bob Menendez
I believe women and minorities often wait for permission to be invited to something; we need to stop doing that.
Ilhan Omar
But everyone, including ethnic minorities, should be worried about how anti-racism is becoming weaponized across the political spectrum – how a lot of people in politics think it’s a good idea to exaggerate the problem of racism.
Munira Mirza
I’m a part of major league rugby. We had a league meeting to decide what to do with anthem protests, and even though I personally agree with what they say they are protesting as inequality and judicial system and incarceration rates among minorities, we decided all should stand and respect every national anthem.
John Layfield
Age discrimination is illegal. But when compared with discrimination against racial minorities and women, it is a second-class civil rights issue.
Adam Cohen
Public schools are not simply being corporatized, they are also subjected increasingly to a militarizing logic that disciplines the bodies of young people, especially low income and poor minorities, and shapes their desires and identities in the service of military values and social relations.
Henry Giroux
Ethnic minorities are not one homogeneous political group.
Rishi Sunak
There are many, many communities, many ethnic minorities, many civilizations that have been brutalised by others and you have to move on. You cannot perpetually stay in that place of blame, otherwise it’s just a downward spiral.
David Oyelowo
I was warmly embraced by the Tea Party. They openly seek more minorities.
Tim Scott
I wanted to represent minorities in the respect of people who had been bullied in school or people who were gay or lesbian or trans or people who aren’t blonde haired and blue-eyed. I have short hair, and I am covered in tattoos. I like showing people that it’s within their rights to be different.
Ruby Rose
Liberals believe they own the franchise on minorities and can’t stand any Hispanic or black who breaks rank.
Linda Chavez
The Left has done a remarkable job marketing themselves as being the party for minorities when every single policy they put forth, from education to employment, has done more to harm these communities than to help.
Dana Loesch
In certain quarters, conservatism is simply racism by another name. And minorities who openly identify themselves as conservatives are still novelties, fish out of water.
Shelby Steele
But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.
Zora Neale Hurston
A Confucian or Jewish love of learning would gain minor

A Confucian or Jewish love of learning would gain minorities far more than any affirmative action laws we might pass.
Richard Lamm
As long as you are in that white privilege bubble, you don’t need to see the world differently. You don’t need to see the world through the eyes of minorities or women.
Raoul Peck
What’s holding us back from being free is fear. Whether it be fear of those on the outside who don’t understand queer people or any other minority, or the actual minorities themselves being scared. The lack of freedom we experience is all tied to fear.
Violet Chachki
Life is now a war zone, and as such, the number of people considered disposable has grown exponentially, and this includes low income whites, poor minorities, immigrants, the unemployed, the homeless, and a range of people who are viewed as a liability to capital and its endless predatory quest for power and profits.
Henry Giroux
Minorities have been hustling backwards from check to check.
Fat Joe
While the primary focus continues to be on religious minorities – the Christian religious minorities and the Jewish community – ISIS will also go after people who interpret and believe the Muslim faith differently than they do.
Pete Hoekstra
I have lived a life that has been beautiful and painful at some moments. But I am convinced others can learn how to control a certain kind of rage that bubbles up in many Americans, particularly, but not limited to, women, blacks, and other minorities.
Jayson Blair
I wanted to create a culture that allowed my children to see the world differently, if only from a strictly visual perspective: to have a child see a room where half of the people are women and minorities is so powerful. I think everyone wants for their children a world that’s better than the one they came up in.
Ryan Murphy
There are hundreds of historic and current examples of women and minorities doing groundbreaking work in technology, but so many of these stories are not well known, and in some cases, the stories have been all but lost.
Megan Smith
Governments can make a greater effort to encourage computer science education, especially among young girls, racial minorities, and other groups whose perspectives have been underrepresented in AI.
Fei-Fei Li
Please look at the response to Windrush, and the apology, in terms of trying to put things right and, secondly, the bigger picture about how this government has been committed to trying to deal with the injustices in society, some of which matter more to people from ethnic minorities.
Sajid Javid
What I want is a sort of new political realignment on libertarian/authoritarian lines, and I want a new consensus to emerge of disaffected liberals, classical liberals, dissident minorities like gays, small-state conservatives, libertarians, people who basically want to be left alone.
Milo Yiannopoulos
On criminal justice reform: Joe Biden couldn’t do it, but President Trump did. On the economy: Joe Biden couldn’t do it, but President Trump did build an economy that worked for everyone, especially minorities, and he will do it again.
Daniel Cameron
It’s not up to the courts to invent new minorities that get special protections.
Antonin Scalia
Even people who say that black people are minorities, there are a billion black people in the world. A billion white people. What part of that is a minority? If you separate yourself, then maybe. But I see black people as one man. When I see people beaten on the streets of America, that hurts me. I feel that.
Daniel Kaluuya
Social Security makes up a much larger share of total retirement income for unmarried women and minorities than it does for married couples, unmarried men and whites.
Diane Watson
Discrimination has a lot of layers that make it tough for minorities to get a leg up.
Bill Gates
I think that wealthy white people would like to have a country that resembles the Fifties, when all the minorities were tucked away in ghettos and paid in very low wages but on the surface it was very bright and shiny and free and the rest of the world would look on it longingly.
Alice Walker
If I understood the great opportunities that are available to women and underrepresented minorities in the field of tech I would have made the transition from traditional engineering to the technology field much earlier in my career.
Kimberly Bryant
The road to some of the darkest moments of history have been paved with the rants of petty demagogues against ethnic minorities for centuries.
Bob Menendez
I think we, the Republicans, have been mistyped as unfriendly to minorities and not receptive to minority views.
Bill Flores
I have spent a great deal of my life being part of minorities. Some of the people I admire the most in the world have had the courage to defend, against wind and tide, minority viewpoints in those frightening times when any disagreement with universal conformity is identified as treason.
Antonio Munoz Molina
