    I think it meant RACIAL minority.

    I always thought LGBT was a lifestyle then it's own "race" :/



    Other then that reply I probably have nothing to contribute to this thread. Stereotypical white-american heritage here, nothing of interest XD

    The US Government considers LGBT A Minority, like we're counted as one when we vote, etc.

    According to all the news outlet Election coverage at least.

    The problem of immigration is integration. Some just enter germany and live in their own culture bubble having little to no knowledge of german and being unemployed without any really "interesting" qualification.
    I agree with woflwood. Talking about it is like asking to get stoned.

    Yeah, but the thread starter apparently didn't mean to include LGBT, (even though the Thread starter has yet to comment...) so I should back out of the conversation right about now

    lol.
    In Benin for example the arabs (especially lebanese people) are ruling the supermarket industry. I did have little interaction with them. What amazed me is how tied the community is there. They somehow created their own bubble where they are strongly tied together. Though they have no problems interacting with black people. Anyways if one arab has a problem there many arabs will help him :)

    That tends to be how immigrant communities work.
    I can still see that in my Dad's half of the family. Least ways compared to my Mom's, which has been here for possibly longer then the US.

    Eh.
    Now that is on-topic.
    Having an afro makes me a minority.

    Well I meant Minority as in every kind of group that does not fit in the majority's picture of things, so LGBTs are included, I suppose! (The idea was to include african-americans, cause maybe they do not see themselves as immigrants)

    I am a 2nd generation Moroccan immigrant. My grandparents came here in the late 60s to work in the coalmines. The plan was just to work some years and go back, but after a while they brought their families and they're still here.

    The dream is to one day go back to the homecountry with the whole family, but I sure couldn't live in Morocco right now.
    And that's the story of 90% of the maghrebians in western europe.

    You probably couldn't tell by looking at me but I'm actually half-Cuban. On that same bloodline I also happen to be 1/16th black.

    Joking aside though I'm English; though I guess if I traced my bloodlines I'd probably find myself in Europe.

    Then again I remember an article on the origins of humanity in the National Geographic that said something along the lines of 'the oldest human fossils being found in Africa'.

    (I'd take this with a pinch of salt until I find the article I'm referring to)
    This is common scientific knowledge.
    Humans migrated out of Africa (well some stayed), and to everywhere else.
