Response to Not Protecting, but Dictatorship of the Minority


"A democracy is a place where it is safe to be part of a minority".
I don't remember who the author of the quote is, but I definitely do agree with is.

In another manner:
Of course, the aim of a constitutional democracy is to safeguard the rights of the minority and avoid the tyranny of the majority. (p. 102)
Cornel West, Race Matters
