Racial Disparities

{Description here}

Minority is a term that groups people (and therefore comes with the potential to be used disparagingly -- consciously or unconsciously) based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity, and/or history of immigration. In many conversations, it is used in connection with concerns of poverty and health disparity, adding another reason that care should be taken not to use the term in a disrespectful manner.
Interestingly, A Review of Community Food Security Literature notes that Northern Minneapolis "has a high concentration of minority groups, so much so that they are a majority," which hints at a confusion of terms when using this word.
