Are You Really A Minority?

Power of Language: Are You Really A Minority? from hoong yee lee krakauer on Vimeo.

Me, a minority?

When 1 out of every 4 people in this world is Chinese, why am I a minority?

Clearly, this is more about controlling the narrative than it is about counting heads.

But listen up people: In just shy of 2 generations, the land of the free will become a minority/majority – another ridiculous term!  That means there will be more people called minorities than there are people called the majority.

We need a better name. Now.

Let’s start by ditching “minority” and replace it with something that is a truer and more powerful descriptor of who we really are.

Check out my video to see what I think that word should be.
