Why should the word minority no longer be used to refer to historically underrepresented groups in the United States?

▸ The word is overused in child development research, leading to a "cultural deficit model."

▸ "Minorities" will soon comprise the majority of people in American society.

▸ There are so many individual variations across cultures that a single term should not be used to define them all.

▸ The word has so many other meanings within our culture that it can be misleading.
