Definitions

Minority, a culturally, ethnically, or racially distinct group that coexists with but is subordinate to a more dominant group. As the term is used in the social sciences, this subordinacy is the chief defining characteristic of a minority group. As such, minority status does not necessarily correlate to population. ~Britannica~

African American  
noun
a black American of African descent.

adjective

of or relating to African Americans.
