Majority-Minority and other Oxymorons

Majority-Minority and other Oxymorons

Majority-Minority and other Oxymorons

An oxymoron 

is a combination of words 

that stand in opposition to each other

Two words when put together

confuse the mind

like cruel kindness

or deafening silence

You must think twice before you agree

There are oxymorons used so frequently 

without question

they become accepted labels and brands

like Icy Hot

The Living Dead

and African-American

There are new innovations

in quirky combinations

that unlock programs

Dumb things desperate people say 

to make your relevance go away

like Majority-Minority

which is clearly

openly-deceptive, true-fiction

Certain, if they say it enough

you will believe it
