Abstract

We are all “minorities” somewhere. Such a thought begs both humility and self-interest. When we consider that the statistically least among us – somewhere else – is us, a thoughtful pause should follow. How and why do I treat those who are not of the ethnic and/or religious majority in my own context? How and why are people of my race and/or religion treated in other places where they are not the majority? 1 What does it mean to be a state of many nations and groups, and how do I advocate on behalf of mutual respect and mutual reliance among the groups?
