FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 4.

2020 NAHJ National Board Asks Newsrooms to Drop the Use of “minority” (Washington

D.C.) – The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) will ask newsrooms to stop labeling people of color as ‘minorities.’ For decades, the term “minority” has been used to refer to groups of people that are outnumbered by non-Hispanic whites — a word that for too long has perpetuated an “us vs.
them” narrative.
The term “minority” should not be used any longer to refer to nonwhite groups.
Accurate phrases depend on the context or the group that is being referred to; appropriate terminology could include communities of color, marginalized communities, underprivileged, or even emerging majority when referencing statistics and data.
According to the Pew Research Center, by 2055 the United States “will have no racial or ethnic majority group.” The Census Bureau expects the country will soon have more people of color than white people, and as communities continue to grow and diversify the country, newsrooms need to shift language appropriately so coverage remains accurate and fair.
“Minority” is often used to refer to a group that is smaller and nonwhite.
When people use the word “minority”, they rarely specify race or background.
Many people use the term when they mean African American, Asian American, Native American, or Hispanic and Latino.
The word “minority” has a connotation of “oppressed group”.
The way it is utilized minimizes historically marginalized people and erases identities.
The people who are considered part of “minority groups” are very diverse, and deserve the proper context.
We do not live in a world where everyone fits under one word.
Avoidance of words that are inaccurate but also offensive is critical in the journalism industry’s fight for its sustainability.
Times and tones change as the years go by, .

The phrase “people of color” received a powerful lift when Martin Luther King Jr
Referred to “citizens of color” in his “I Have a Dream” speech

linking “of color” to self-empowerment.
“There will be white newsroom leaders across the country that probably haven’t thought twice about this,” said Hugo Balta, NAHJ president.
“What they need to recognize is this outdated terminology perpetuates an ‘us vs.
them’ narrative, and their ‘journalism’ is being delivered into homes across the country with a stereotype attached.” Newsrooms can do their best to improve the language by being more descriptive and specific.
A person of nonwhite skin tone should not be looked down upon or belittled.
There’s always an option to refer to this group by what their nationality, race and/or ethnicity is.
Using the word community can be a good replacement, since it is more inclusive, and can be paired with the name of the community of such group.
If there’s a need to emphasize that a group is fewer in numbers, always mention that it is outnumbered.
Now more than ever, journalists must be highly aware of the terms referenced, how they are received and interpreted by the public, and the connotations that they hold.
