in my book, a "minority" is anyone who would solicit weird glances from the white boys at the local hardware store.So yes, you would count.
I just want to put in my two cents: This whole URM thing is really complex. Some people say it's based on color - that one cannot understand what it is like to be a minority because of the color of their skin (they get discriminated against, etc.). A wealthy black person would fit in as a URM under this classification scheme.Others say it's based on economic disadvantage, therefore, a poor white person would fit this criteria.Now, some of you are claiming that simply because of the fact that one is Cuban, they are a URM. I know a Cuban Jewish kid who I grew up with and went to Hebrew school with. He is the whitest kid you ever knew, and I really doubt he experienced either requirement for socio-economic disadvantage (neither social nor economic). But, he is Cuban. So, according to some of your classification systems, he is a URM, however, this does not make much sense to me.
