It's actually the minority of religious people who rejects science or feel threatened by it or want to sort of undo or restrict the... where science can go. The rest, you know, are just fine with science. And it has been that way ever since the beginning.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
A minority may be right, and a majority is always wrong.
If you're in a diabetic or prediabetic state, it's good to have medication to go on for a period of time. But simply by making the changes - get your sleep, 35 grams of fiber and a half-hour walk - your cholesterol will come down, your sugar will come down, and your blood pressure will come down. Only the minority of people can't control it.
It's a great day in America when white people, black people and Latinos can all come together and pick on another minority.
The law is an adroit mixture of customs that are beneficial to society, and could be followed even if no law existed, and others that are of advantage to a ruling minority, but harmful to the masses of men, and can be enforced on them only by terror.

The argument that somehow we've got to get rid of minority scholarships so that we can have a free and fair America implies that we have a colorblind society where minorities are equal in their pursuit of funds to go to school.
William H. Gray
I was Catholic. You talk about a minority within a minority within a minority: a black Catholic in Savannah, GA.
Murders with guns are the No. 1 cause of death for African-American men between the ages of 15 and 34.

South Africa was to evolve into the most pernicious example of the criminal practise of colonial and white minority domination.

Invention consists in avoiding the constructing of useless contraptions and in constructing the useful combinations which are in infinite minority.
I'm used to being in the minority. I'm a left-handed gay Jew. I've never felt, automatically, a member of any majority.
A pet store is a celebration of dogs' existence and an explosion of options. About cats, a pet store seems to say, 'Here, we couldn't think of anything else.' Cats are the Hanukkah of the animal world in this way. They are feted quietly and happily by a minority, but there's only so much hoopla applicable to them.
A high-speed connection is no more an essential civil right than 3G cell phone service or a Netflix account. Increasing competition and restoring academic excellence in abysmal public schools is far more of an imperative to minority children than handing them iPads.

A minority group has 'arrived' only when it has the right to produce some fools and scoundrels without the entire group paying for it.
Carl T. Rowan

Racing may be a minority sport, but I wouldn't swap it for all the money in the world.
The right of a minority is so important in a democracy.
John F. Kennedy
