Frankly, PoC is one of the LESS common ways I hear, in fact even less common than “Negro.”

So, I suppose the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People also objects to the term Colored People?

And what is the semantic difference between ‘people of color’ and ‘colored people’?

You can say ‘people of color’ but you can’t say ‘colored people’. What’s the difference?

While the average white person simply uses the analogue of white, i.e. black.

Is “I am white” a racist statement?

Is “I am a man” a sexist statement?

Who defines these stupid terms? The Left of course. So according to them, “Black Lives Matter” is not racist and the “women’s movement” is not sexist.

What utter and complete b/s “racism” and “sexism” are. Lying and confusing tools of the Lying and Confused Left.

Best thing: ignore all this b/s and move on to issues that are in fact substantive.

As I have mentioned in the past,
the American national motto has
been changed from “In God We Trust,”
to “You owe me an apology.”
