Simply put, no, it isn't classified as a minority class. If you look at it strictly from those races included when reporting, it's what Essay Snark mentioned (Hispanic, African American / Black, Native American). Therefore, if you are looking for your racial background to bolster your application, it won't.
While not many Persians are in B School, it isn't that rare either. If you are going to call attention to this, you should have a very good reason for doing so. In other words, if you use it in any other place other than the application itself (where they ask you to select from drop downs, etc.), then it should make the story stronger. Otherwise, you'll look like you're trying to play that card and it won't be very useful to you.
