Reply to "People of Color' are All One? Latino Inmates in L.A. Don't Think So"

Am I the only annoyed by the whole "people of color" catchphrase? First, "people of color" are the majority on this plant, so why invent a catch-all term for the majority, why not the minority? Should we start refering to whites as "people lacking color" or "people of paleness"? Roll Eyes Second, it irks me how all "people of color" are grouped together, despite extreme differences in culture, race, ethnicity, and country of origin. A Nigerian may have the same skin tone as a Dravidian, but therein is where the similarities end. Outside of skin tone, they don't even look remotely similar, are from different continents, and have different customs and languages and religions. If the media really must signify that there are talking about several groups of non-European peoples, why not just list which ones, or at least use the term "non-white"?
