people of color

The National Association of Black Journalists’ Style Guide says, “Acceptable use as a synonym for minorities. May also use to describe groups such as journalists of color or women of color.”

However, some people feel uncomfortable with the idea of lumping people of different groups together. For an interesting discussion of the term, see The Seattle Times’ “Under Our Skin” project, which was published in June 2016.
