bipoc - is this a re-imagination of the blm type movement?

Never heard the term but we discovered it in a description of the movie Tar.

Apparently it means 'Black and Indigeous People-Of-Colour'? Like wtf?

Yes, when BIPOC, BLM, and ANTIFA combine forces, all white Christian males will be castrated and shot into the Sun.

@daisymay don't even make fun, some will claim that as fact.

@samueltyler2 I mean, goals are good, right?

@daisymay WTF are you trying to say? There is really too much hate on this site. What you are espousing is supportive of the white supremist theory of replacement. It has no place in intelligent discussion, except to condemn it for what it is, hate.

It's just a catchall term for various non-white groups there's no mass movement or something. Been around for years in my neck of the woods.

Sheesh! It will be nice when people stop caring how much melanin any given person has.

@SlaveEt I know, right? All it proves is that your ancestors came from someplace sunny.

Always thought it was sorta a goofy term bc black people and indigenous people [i]are[/i] POCs. It's also pretty inoffensive though, and I don't see how a new term constitutes a reimagining of an entire movement.

@BlueVeins Like I said, it's just the normal human tendency to create euphemisms for euphemisms of euphemisms.
Yes, black and indigenous people of color, ever present. Is this news ? It shouldn’t be anything to fear.
Interesting that you posted under lgbtq+.

It's stupid. Y'all can bipoc deez nuts.

@BohemianBoo BLM is racist because it still makes out there an an inferior and a superior grouping of humans based purely around skin colour.
BohemianBoo · 18-21, M
@mksworld BLM isn't racist. They're just incorrect in thinking that police violence is racist in nature. It's generally classist.

Meh...

@mksworld [quote]BLM is racist.[/quote]

Why, are you scared of people who believe black lives matter? 😆

It's just a thing humans do. We come up with euphemisms for terms that were formerly acceptable, and then we come up with terms that are euphemisms for the euphemisms. For the same reason, secretaries became known as administrative assistants, and the shitter is now known as the restroom.

Although I'd not formerly heard the term either, I seriously doubt it's any "re-imagining" of [i]any[/i] particular movement.

Honestly, all of you humans look alike to me.
