minorities refer to any ethic group in a country or area that is not the largest ethnic group. For instance, in the United States Caucasians (whites) are the majority ethnic group; while Blacks, Asians, Native Americans and so on are minorities, or minority ethnic groups. However a minority is not limited to being an ethnic group, for example left handed people are a minority in the world. However, usually when minorities are referenced in politics…
There are many. There are some ethnic groups that are minorities in some countries, but a majority in at least one. For example, practically every European national ethnic group (French, German, Italian, Greek, etc.). Some non-European ethnic minorities include Berbers, Arabs, Indians, Chinese, Americans, etc. In a religious sense, some ethnic minorities include Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, etc.

In a certain college 33 of the physics majors belong to ethnic minorities Find the probability from a random sample of 10 students who are physics majors-Exactly 2 belong to ethnic minorities?

Also, if you're trying to make a point about affirmative action, please note that the lines are drawn around "underrepresented minorities," not "ethnic minorities." For example, most classified as "Asian-Pacific Americans" would not directly benefit from AA.

One of the purposes of constitutional government is to protect the rights of minorities from the "tyranny of the majority." This is why we have civil rights and documents such as the Bill of Rights. The same principle protects religious minorities, ethnic minorities, linguistic minorities, racial minorities, etc. Indigenous peoples are protected analogously.

Are you speaking of "hated" (a very harsh word) by other citizens or by the multi-ethnic presidency? A number of countries have presidents but only the U.S. has had a multi-ethnic president. Since he was voted into office by a majority of its white citizens, there is no reason to think other minorities would be treated any differently. The U.S. is a homogeneous society.
