I don't have a problem with this. Just as a matter of communication, it is true that terms for minority groups have special meaning and history, as opposed to the majority.
It is my opinion that we should do away with such designations. Maybe not right away, since there is some value at the moment in communicating, but long term we should not divide human beings into groups.
