Are You A Person of Color?


Are YOU A Person of Color?

“Are you a person of color?” What would be your answer to that question? I mean, what is a person of color in the first place?

If you can’t answer any of those questions, don’t beat yourself up about it. The term “person of color”, in my honest opinion was purposely made to be equivocal, tricky, confusing.

You don’t have to believe me. Just perform a quick Google and/or Bing search for “are you a person of color?”; and you’ll see that it is indeed a very hot topic.

There is even a silly online argument going on over who is a person of color and who is not, where people are trying to determine whether or not Asians are card-holding, dues-paying members of the U.S. Colored Peoples’ Association of America.

What is a Person of Color?

It depends on the context. A lot of people who colonially identify with being “black” feel it is a term exclusive solely to them. But before the question can be answered, we must first look at the legal definitions of person and color.

Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Edition defines a person as: In general usage, a human being (i.e. natural person), though by statute term may include labor organizations, partnerships, associations, corporations, legal representatives, trustees, trustees in bankruptcy, or receivers. See e.g. National Labor Relations Act, § 2(1), 29 U.S.C.A. § 152; Uniform Partnership Act, § 2. Scope and delineation of term is necessary for determining those to whom Fourteenth Amendment of Constitution
affords protection since this Amendment expressly applies to “person.”

Black’s Law Dictionary 2nd Edition defines color as: An appearance, semblance, or simulacrum, as distinguished from that which Is real. A prima facie or apparent right. Hence, a deceptive appearance; a plausible, assumed exterior, concealing a lack of reality ; a disguise or pretext.

Unfortunately, many so-called “persons of color”, so-called black people specifically; have been subtly taught to think being “black” as being something that’s anthropological in nature.

Some people feel it includes so-called black people, so-called Latinos, Asians, basically; any group of people in North America who aren’t classified as white under Federal Directive 15.

Just as it has a definition for white, Federal Directive 15 also has a definition for black; the poster-child for so-called “people of color”, “minorities”.

In short, the Federal corporation, I mean “government”, classifies color as being a socio-political construct, i.e. a legal status for those who have been cut off from their true history and national descent name (national origin).

It has nothing to do with one’s so-called African origins, their genealogy. Plain and simple, a person of color is a legal term, no matter how it’s used colloquially, and without any regard to so-called black peoples’ feelings about the matter.

Are Asians Persons of Color?

As I’ve mentioned earlier, whether or not Asians are considered persons of color is a hot online topic. And though I could go back and forth online with the best of them; the truth is, Asians are NOT persons of color. The only yellow people are the people on the Simpson’s show.

Why aren’t Asians factually colored people? They have a national descent name. You know what country they’re from. You know the Japanese from the Chinese, the Chinese from the Korean, the Indigenous Filipino (Moro) from the Vietnamese, so on and so forth.

They have not been cut off from hundreds to thousands of years of their customs, history, identity, and pedigree (CHIP). The only reason Asians are technically classified as people of color, is because they’re classified as minorities.

Doesn’t “minority” specify a small population of a specific people?

The so-called elites have been benefiting for years from the masses thinking the legal status, “minority”, pertains to population.

Being a minority has nothing to do with population, but more to do with a people not being UNABLE to manage their own affairs, thus being treated as “undesirables” in the society in which they occupy.

The custodians most likely justifiably sees their custodianship as a long overdue burden that they’re ready to be released from. That doesn’t sound like Asians in America to me.

Asians in America, though they may have much to complain about, don’t do much complaining about their lot in the world in America.

They are “taking their places in the affairs of men” as mentally-abled adults should. Therefore, they do not fit the legal definition of minority.

Black’s Law Dictionary 2nd Edition defines minority as: The state or condition of a minor; infancy.

As we all know, or at least we used to know; that babies cannot handle their own affairs. They need all types of chaperones, guardians, overseers, and wardens to make sure their needs are met.

This is why children, even up until the age of 18 are called “minors”. They are unable to go on field trips without their parents’ permission.

They aren’t allowed to get tattoos without their parents’ permission. They can’t sign contracts without their parent’s signatures. They live in a world built on privileges.
