Minority :

In the US the term “minority” frequently refers to racial minorities, and is used not only for groups, but also for individuals.

But many authorities object to calling a single person a minority, as in “We hired a minority for the job.”

Even phrases like “women and minorities” bother some people.

They think it should be ”members of minorities.”
