Because I still have this sad, hopeless belief that the people featured on this blog will actually listen when people explain things to them, I made a handy-dandy chart in an attempt to explain marginalization versus minority status.
It’s true that some minorities are marginalized … but some minorities are just that: a small subsection of the larger population.

In other words, they do not face systemic prejudice, bigotry, and oppression simply for being who they are.
