Well perhaps you and your pals should take a stand and stand up for people of colour.

Other than signing a petition or something, not much I can really do.

Unless I was to become an anarachist and rally to overthrow the whole corrupt system (because that always works), of course. Even when we vote people in who promise ****, nothing gets done because of lobbies and campaign promises. See: Barack Obama and the closing of G-Bay.

Yep, I get it.  However, big changes need a start.  You may think it's pointless, but if everyone thought like that - nothing would change for the better.

I think the clue was in 'than white people do'.
  Non-whites would be more accurate than POC then. POC sounds like the kind of american pc doublespeak that tries to avoid reality.

I don't believe I was even engaging you in a conversation.  Goodnight, James.

Non-whites denotes "other" as in white is the default....also you can be of mixed race and therefore non-white makes no sense.

I'm not sure what "reality" I'm avoiding, since I have met and seen a lot of people of color call themselves people of color...

Yes, disengage when you can't support what you say.

Your idealism is nauseating.

  I've met many people from all ethnic backgrounds - but never one who described themselves as a person of colour. Sounds like a piece of posey pseudosocial **** to me, I'm afraid. As far as I'm concerned 100% of all prisoners who were ever locked up all over the world were persons of colour. If you really mean people outwith the ruling caste, why not say so?

"People outwith the ruling caste" is accurate but really long.
POC might be something that Americans use (I live in America) but I've heard American "non-whites" refer themselves as POC. So it may be limited to their experience but I've always used it out of respect for them, since they are the people I most interact with. I'm sure if someone from another area asked me to use something else, I'd use it.

I don't really like Megyn Kelly but this is such a good smackdown of the shitty conservative views so many Americans hold.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?
