Everywhere it seems the term "people of color" is being used to describe anyone, and I mean anyone, who is not 100% lily white. One of my questions is, when did white stop being a color?
There are white clothes, white vehicles, heck there's even a white house. But "white" isn't included in the "people of color" color wheel.
It seems every "non-white" wants to embrace this stupid "people/person of color" label. And I know why. If you're able to attach this label to yourself, you're automatically going to be treated with kid gloves. But honestly, let's stop using the term "people" or "person" of color and call them what they really want to be treated as. Victims.

My guess it that about half of the people in this country prefer a political party that is based entirely on what category someone looks like and what ever they want to be (Female, Male, Goat, Tree, Whatever) at the time.
This is also the same political party that tells them that they are too stupid to obtain a photo ID, and for that they get a virtual lock on all of their votes.
The 'People of Color' is another play on words that they are good at. Universally identified as 'Democratic' as opposed to 'A Democrat' because it implies democracy to their side only, but that is something for a different thread.

They all seem very angry, so I prefer to call them “People of Choler”.
