*Terms like POC (people of color), BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color), and NBPOC (non-Black people of color) have historically been self-identified umbrella terms to unite folks racialized under colonialism and racial capitalism.

However, these terms can also be co-opted to impose artificial solidarities where there should be nuance; allowing us to gloss over individuals’ distinct geopolitical histories and their proximities to whiteness; and erasing the unique oppressions that Black and Indigenous folks experience. Since we know many of our community choose to use these terms, we rely on context to guide when we use them and when we leave room for deeper analysis.
