    Should You Use the Word ‘Minority’?

    Question: What do you or DiversityInc think about the use of the word "minority"? In my personal life, I have begun to use the term "people of color" to represent anyone non-white. I find the word "minority" offensive and degrading to the people it represents, regardless of race. But more so because the word is originally a math term meaning "the smaller part or number; a number, part, or amount forming less than half of the whole."
