    Can the Left make up it's mind? I thought 'Women of color' was the nom de jour. Will they continue to split hairs:

    That's the problem with Identity politics. They have to separate everyone into their own individual groups. Eventually those groups find that what other groups want don't always coincide with what they want so they split off. IE: Division is created.

    A certain amount of division is natural (birds of a feather). But the MSM is a master at stirring the pot.

    Nothing better demonatrates the intellectual bankruptcy of identity politics like watching adherents split hairs over who belongs to what group and why. In Aparthied South Africa they ran it down to octaroons in seeking to define at what point you had access to certain rights. Sadly they weren't alone in such insanity. Now days when I watch woke leftist argue the same sort of idiotic points as they did in South Africa for much the same reason, I wonder why we can't seem to get it in our collective conscience and keep it their that such artificial groupings are inherently evil if for no other reason than the fact that the only one's who ultimately benefit from such idiocy are demogogues and con men like our current president.

    Always fun to argue semantics, isn't it?

    Did you just assume their gender?

    Sounds like a logical solution that most people could agree with.

    Of course, and they don't want a. Conversation they want a two hour lecture series and no question and answer session afterwards.

    And the one question they least want to hear is exactly how do we get beyond race if everything must be described in racial terms even the Muppets.

    And if you are Asian and from India you are "of color" but from Japan or China you are not.

    And BTW white is a color.

    I'm proud to be white and proud of what my race has achieved. Any other whiteys on the PF agree.

    What has your skin color got to do with other people's achievements?

    Using the term "of" undermines other adpositions.
