I hate when people use the term POC its makes me so angry
PoC isn’t a fucking tumblr term the fuck is wrong with these people
im pretty sure only people on tumblr and social media use it no one uses it in the real world
Really now? Tumblr was around in 1793?(origins of the term) And In 1963, I guess MLK was posting about the term People of Color on his blog?
If anyone needs to go out and get information from things other than anti-sj blogs, it’s you. You’ve clearly spent too much time wallowing in ignorance, it’s honestly quite embarrassing.
I love how you accuse her of being ignorant
For not wanting to be part of a term that erases pretty much all cultures and lumps them all into monolinths “white” and “not white” and that the term is Murrica-centric as hell.
Fact is, Social Justice stupidity has revived the term, and a lot of people object to it. You get annoyed when people refer to Africa as one country? Well then why are you suddenly cool with not just Africa, but Asia, South and Central America, and the non-white populations of Oceania all being depicted as one interchangable mass where they are merely defined as not being white?
Get your head out of Murrica pls thank
I have literally only seen “PoC” used on the internet/tumblr and have never heard anyone speak it in real life.
Which is a good thing, because it’s a fucking disgusting phrase that separates humanity into “white people” and “not white people.” Like how fucking racist can you be without even realizing it?
PoC is a purely american term to describe the discrepencies in experience and priveledge between Caucasian people/White people and those that are not such IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The terms that were ever used before PoC were non-whites, and minorities. Minorities is still widely used but PoC is becoming more popular.
Please stop calling the phrase fucking racist when POC GROUPS MADE THE PHRASE. The entire point is to try and remove other connotations from the words that previously were used to describe such groups in the United States. While it isn’t perfect (it definitely sounds SUPER RACIST outside of the states), I feel like “non-white” and “minority” have worse connotations.
(That said, tumblr abuses the FUCK out of the phrase and that’s the worst aspect of it’s use)
