Coloured and people of color are the same thing. If someone called me either I would feel awkward. I'm black. I'm not similar to Hispanic, Asians, or Pacific Islanders or whatever else there is. I am black. Jumbling us together when talking about discrimination is the only time the phrase should be used in my opinion.

reverseracism:

Coloured and people of color are similar grammatically but differ semantically. Where colored stemmed from disrespect, people of color was formed by making a political identity for people in the U.S. whom have racialized experiences and would like to acknowledge those experiences under solidarity.

Your opinion on the word is touched based upon in the last link of the previous ask that was similar to this. It wasn’t made to group similiar experiences together, it’s made for people who choose to identity with the term.

The ACLU of Louisiana has come to the defenseof a Rastafarian boy who has been suspended from school and forbidden to return until he cuts his dreadlocks.

The boy was sent home from South Plaquemines High School when classes resumed Aug. 8 because his dreadlocks extended beyond the collar of his shirt, in apparent violation of the school dress code.

After he returned to school the following week with his hair pinned up, school officials told the student his dreadlocks remained in violation.

Rastafarians believeLeviticus 21:5forbids them to cut their hair, and dreadlocks are central to their religious beliefs.

“The wearing of dreadlocks for (the student) is akin to the wearing of a religious icon by another student,” the ACLU said in a letter sent Monday to the Plaquemines Parish School Board.

The student’s mother provided a letter to the school superintendent from the 1st Church of Rastafar I that indicated the boy’s family were members and explained the importance of dreadlocks to their faith.

The superintendent told the teen’s mother that was not sufficient to allow the dreadlocks, and when she asked what documentation would be required, he told the mother he wasn’t a lawyer.

“We would object if the school were to tell a Christian student they could not wear a cross or if it were to permit the wearing of religious icons of one faith and prohibited those of another faith,” the civil rights group said. “In discriminating against (the student’s) religious beliefs, the school is expressing a preference for certain religions, which is unacceptable.”

Although the school has not formally suspended the student, he has missed 10 of the first 11 days of the school year over his dreadlocks.

“The actions of the school and Superintendent (Denis) Rousselle are the equivalent of an unlimited suspension,” the ACLU said.

The ACLU said the school had violated the student’s constitutional rights, as well as Louisiana’s Preservation of Religious Freedom Act.

That 2010 law imposes “strict scrutiny” on any burden of religious liberty, which in this case would force the school district to demonstrate a compelling interest in requiring the student to cut his hair.

“(The student) will be able to prove that his dreadlocks and hair length are a sincerely held religious belief of his Rastafari religion,” the ACLU said. “It is also a method of self-expression, because it communicates to others an important fact about (the student): that he is a Rastafari for whom traditional religious practices are important to him and his family. By refusing to allow him to attend school, the Board is violating (his) statutory and constitutional rights.”

Do you feel as though you are supporting ignorance and segregation by shaming people away from enjoying, understanding, and trying to see a culture from a 1st person POV? How can people learn about and appreciate other cultures if they are constantly told they are not welcome? How is this "us and them" helping if not to keep a race pure and separated? And how is this not racial supremacy?

Why do White-identified folk always think the ultimate goal of racial justice is snuggling up to White people?

they’re all about propagating the white agenda, they’re self-centered, and the big kicker:

image

it’s the classic “me me me” syndrome 

  • what about me
  • my feelings
  • my experiences

and hyperbole is always used - through the viewpoint and reason that anything not about them is destructive, denigrating, and downright rude and mean 

it’s never about anyone else. we (non-white folk) don’t matter.
