Don't you think the term "POC" is racist? I mean, they lump non white people in a group, erasing their cultures and individualities.

reverseracism:

It’s an umbrella term that’s only racist on tumblr because it’s associated with evil social justice warriors by people who only noticed the terms use when they got onto tumblr. “People of Color” has been around for a long time, it’s modern use has been around for decades.

It’s mind-boggling because I hear how bad it is to use umbrella terms like people of color from these people, and how it’s erasure, but I don’t see them referring to individuals any time soon. Here you have people using umbrella terms that lumps non white people together that no one has a problem with including the blacks, minorities, and non-white, what you’re using right now anon while trying to say that people of color is racist.

Here’s the run down and explanations on the term:

Tupac was using vile language and preparing to fight someone on the set of Poetic Justice. Dr.  Maya Angelou was on set and here are the powerful words she employed to diffuse the fight which eventually made Tupac cry:

"When was the last time that anyone told you that ‘it’s all for you,’ that we lived 300 years on the edge of a dime so that you can exist? When is the last time? Do you know that we stood on slave ship decks and stood on auction blocks and were hosed down like dogs for you, so that you can live?’
