Black Sheep

noun
- Used other than as an idiom: black
- (idiomatic) a nonconformist; an unusual or unconventional person
- (idiomatic) a disliked person; one who is disfavored
- 2003 April 10, "The Native Informant," The Nation (US) (retrieved 24 July 2014):

 Kissinger, after all, is a figure of renown among the self-appointed leaders of "the people from whom he stems" and a frequent speaker at Jewish charity galas, whereas Ajami is a man almost entirely deserted by his people, a pariah at what should be his hour of triumph. In Arnoun, a family friend told me, "Fouad is a black sheep because of his staunch support for the Israelis."

He always was the black sheep in the family, as an artist among doctors and lawyers.

synonyms
