In a way, he is sort of right. The term "People of Color" was used from the early 1800s to describe Blacks and probably half-Blacks. But, in a general sense, "People of Color" is just that; anyone other than whites. It most certainly was NOT EVER used to describe Hispanics.
And this makes Alejo's selective use of the term all the more despicable - and racist.
What makes it delicious is that Alejo’s omission of Asian-Americans from “students of color” status so undercuts majority Democrats’ attempts to stop the Latino-Asian rift from growing.Dems aren't racist, until they are.
What makes it obnoxious is that Alejo acts as if he holds the moral high ground in advocating for a return to UC admissions policies that punished Asian-American students with de facto quotas — in the name of atoning for white racism.
Racial justice? Social justice?
