Who are People of Color…NOBODY!

Let’s question the term, people of color because it’s a term still circulating in African Americans and European Americans (aka White Americans). African Americans did not create the term, people of color. It was created by the British coming to America, mainly from George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
