In a reply to Mycroft I used “minorities” without the quotes. Usually I don’t, because the word bugs me. The idea bugs me.
Philosophically, there’s “us” and “me”. We, the human race, are the only consciously aware beings we know. Well, progressives seem like poorly written Turing programs. Increasingly they appear to not possess self-awareness. But they still pass for human in the courtroom, so I don’t recommend deactivating them for casual reasons.
Anyway, that’s “us”. Can we, philosophically, sub-divide “us”? Certainly. “We” are comprised of seven billion “me”s. Seven billion individuals.
When someone loses an arm, we don’t consider him 19/20’s of a person. He’s no less an individual than before. And defining your entire persona as, say, “African-American” seems equally crazy to me. You’re purposefully dividing the human race into “Us” and “Them”.
