An Inclusive Litany

1/14/02

Following a similar action in San Diego, the Boston City Council voted unanimously to stop using the word "minority" in city documents. City Councilor Charles Yancey hopes the term "people of color" will be used instead.

[Ed.: Since we have traveled full circle, note that the term "people of color" is inferior to the otherwise unacceptable term "colored people" since it subordinates "people" to their "color" rather than the other way around.]
