The Origin of the phrase “Women of Color”

“It is a solidarity definition. A commitment to work in collaboration with other oppressed women of color.” 

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of white liberals saying “POC is just another way of saying ‘colored!!!’” and “POC is just othering!!” and my personal favorite “White people are poc too because white is the combination of all colors!”

So here you have it. The term “people of color” is not about biology, or technicality regarding ethnicity, it’s about solidarity, and it is not about white people.
