A commenter at isteve asks, In a global economy, what is a minority?

Can I be a minority containing one individual?

More seriously, white-skinned English speakers of European descent are a minority in the global population.

"A minority is whoever I say it is."

This isn't completely new. Women are often referred to as "a minority" despite the fact that numerically we aren't.

Everybody is/are a minority; except maybe the Chinese.
