I don’t mean the people. I mean the phrase “people of color” and I mean the use of any words of color to describe people. Did you know that we have a black man in the White House…and a black woman. Get out your color charts people! Historically we’ve had lots of white folks in the White House. GET OUT YOUR COLOR CHARTS PEOPLE! The problem is that we don’t use our highly developed language to say what we really mean. OMG our President must be gray! Some black and some white, right? Any artist can tell you that. Do you use your language skills, your vocabulary and your intellect to say what you really mean? Or are you linguistically lazy and say what others are saying? I’ve placed squares on the attached images of the Holy Mary and our President, of course you won’t be able to see the squares because they are black and white.
