Again I'm not talking about racial/ethnic minorities. I'm talking about people whose viewpoints, opinions, &/or lifestyles differ from the norm. There are those who are visionary,ahead of their times, trendsetters, & avant garde that others follow, even imitate.They're deemed the progressive minority in this context. Then there are those who are classified as behind the times in their outlook,viewpoints,& ideas; they're old-fashioned. Others view them as reactionary, even out of sync w/modernity. They're deemed the retrogressive minority.
