H-hi ummm this is a stupid question that I'll probably regret doing and I'm really sorry already but ummm i just need to know y'know? Anyway, I am Mexican but I'm white... ummm my question is... i mean... ummm would I be considered a poc? I know it sounds incredibly stupid and I probably wouldn't suffer the same amount of discrimination that my sister would for example (who has brown skin)... but idk... I still relate to some poc or poc related post and stuff... so what am I?
It isn’t a stupid question! You are still considered poc, you just have to acknowledge you’re white passing privilege and the colorism in your community that caters toward you. That doesn’t mean you don’t experience oppression of your own, you may even experience/relate to some forms of oppression and discrimination your sister goes through.
You are a person of color, albeit white passing, you still are one.
