As a ‘person of color’, I find not only the term offensive, but am super offended when it is written as poc/POC. You’re very concerned with how ‘people of color’ are represented, their cultures, etc, but can’t be bother to write out three words, seems sort of hypocritical.
I will definitely take this into consideration. I do know that some people do not like the term, but I don’t know of any other term that is generally considered not offensive and is created by the people it represents. I will endeavor to at the least write it out more often. I had just seem it written that way so often, especially by people of color themselves so I figure it was harmless shorthand. I apologize.
