I think a person of color is anybody who is not a part of the majority in the region they live in. You don’t have to actually have a dark hue to your skin to be a person of color. I don’t know if this term exist in other nations but in America, a person of color is anybody who’s not white. Is it a negative term? I don’t think so. But I guess when people hear person of color they think “black person” and nobody wants to be associated with us, right?
Eh. Such is life in America.
