The word Minority being removed

I would like to see the use of the word minority removed from the association with people of color. The word is as offensive as the N word. No one is superior to another race, and when classifying a racial group as a minority implies that someone is less than human. I would also like to see the word removed from Webster Dictionaries. If Affirmative Action can be removed, then the entire stigmatism of racial perferences, and racial superiority must be abolished as well. Not just in talk, but in practice. We are all Americans, so we should be called by our ethnic group (African American, White American, Native American, Mexican American) to level the playing fields, and truly believe that all men/women are created equal.

We have to first of all believe in ourselves as not being the "minority" because we truly are not. I hope to see this come to fruition. Continue to pass this on and "we" may become a part of history.
