It's nice that it exists but it would be great to revise it and make a new one with some more input from sociolinguists and with more focus on normalization than just vague "promotion" and "protection".


Had it been a serious thing, I guess nobody would have signed and ratified it. :lol:

A friend of mine who is white is really interested in India but has certain preconceived notions about us Indians and really doesn't seem to understand the concept of white privilege. I wonder how to explain it to her. Trying to do that sure is a painful process. :|

Maybe you could start with an area where she is the disadvantaged one, like male privilege, and then go on to other types?

:lol: oh, I love that kind of irony.

In Valencia there's something similar going on. The Valencian Ministress of Culture, member of the anti-Catalan party PP, and who is trying hard to eliminate any reference to Catalonia or the fact that the native language is shared with Catalonia from the educational system, is called María José Català. :lol:

I have the same impression. I still don't quite understand how everyone can make a distinction based on 'race' between Serbs and Croats. Aren't the differences between them plainly cultural? I often wonder how similar that problem is to the nation clashes in Spain.

Well, "race" is a multivalent word whose meaning has fluctuated and evolved over time. The use of it to denote a subclass of humans based on shared physical characteristics dates only to the 18th century in English, but the word had been in use for centuries before that to refer to "a tribe, nation, or people, regarded as of common stock" or "a group of several tribes or peoples, regarded as forming a distinct ethnic set".
