Thomas Sowell – American society’s ethnic mosaic

Share this quote:
Thomas SowellThe massive ethnic communities that make up the mosaic of American society cannot be adequately described as “minorities.” There is no “majority.” The largest single identifiable ethnic strain are people of British ancestry — who make up just 15 percent of the American population. They barely outnumber German Americans (13 percent) or blacks (11 percent). Millions of Americans cannot identify themselves at all ethnically, due to intermixtures over the generations.

James Baldwin – Identity of the Negro in America

Share this quote:
James BaldwinDespite the terrorization which the Negro in America endured and endures sporadically, despite the cruel and totaly inescapable ambivalence of his status in this country, the battle for his identity has long ago been won. He is not a visitor to the West, but a citizen there, an American.

James Baldwin   (1924-1987)
