The Challenges of Cultural Diversity

Question

What is the distinction between minority and privileged minority?

Answer

Privileged minority depicts the minority of the wealthy persons. It is always in all societies that an affluent class remains relatively small in number but these are not subject-matter of sociology. Here "minority" is without a qualified phrase of "Priviledge". It generally implies a relatively small but also disadvantaged group in society. They form groups and feel togetherness and belonging. The socialled priviledged minority is put in disadvantaged category in a cultural sense because of their small number relative to the group of overwhelming majority.
