It is time for anti-racism

The term Black is a self-designation and does not refer to a person's biological characteristics, but to their position in a social construct. Black is capitalized to make it clear that it is not about the skin color, but a constructed assignment. Accordingly, being Black does not mean being assigned to an assumed 'ethnic group', but also being connected to the common experience of racism. Doctors, philosophers and anthropologists such as Bernier, Linne, Buffon or Kant divided people into races and derived stages of development based on skin color and assigned certain psychological characteristics to them. For example, people with darker skin tones were worth less, less civilized, and more stupid than whites (Zerger, Johannes, 1997, What is Racism ?: an introduction).

BIPoC - Black Indigenous Person of Color

The term BIPoC is a self-designation and stands for Black, Indigenous, Person or People of Color. It brings together almost all those affected by racism and recognizes that not all non-white people face the same level of injustice. By expressly naming blacks and indigenous people, it is recognized that Blacks and Indigenous people face the worst consequences of systemic White supremacy, classicism and the consequences of colonialism.
