The Nuance of 'People of Color': Racism Among Non-Black Minorities

On today's show: 

The term “people of color" (POC) is invoked frequently in this racially-conscious age of Barack Obama and Donald Trump. What are the social implications and connotations of the term "people of color?" What happens when the group experiences of Asians, Latinos, indigenous, and Arab Americans are conflated with black American experiences? Worldview discusses with Dr. Su'ad Abdul Khabeer, associate professor of American Culture and Arab and Muslim American Studies at the University of Michigan, Justin K.H. Tse, visiting assistant professor of Asian American Studies at Northwestern University, and Ariana Brown, a black Mexican American poet, performer, and workshop facilitator.
