Black/Indigenous/People of color

Excepts from thebipocproject.org:

“We use the term BIPOC to highlight the unique relationship to whiteness that Indigenous and Black (African Americans) people have, which shapes the experiences of and relationship to white supremacy for all people of color within a U.S. context. We unapologetically focus on and center relationships among BIPOC folks. ”

“We address how three pillars of racism – Native invisibility, anti-Blackness and white supremacy - are internalized and show up in mutually reinforcing, distinct, and specific ways within BIPOC spaces and impede our efforts to collaborate across difference;”
We offer a vision of solidarity rooted in reimagined relationships between BIPOC in an anti-Black, white supremacist society. — thebipocproject.org

A post-modern term that continues the never-ending interjection of intersectionality into the "minority" experience. Previously, POC, or "people/person(s) of color" was the go-to term to describe non-whites in western civilization. However, because some POC's actually out-perform whites in western cultures related to education and income, and this hugely contradicts the post-modern narrative that "all POC's are oppressed by whites, always", post-modernism has adapted by continuing to break people into identity groups to reaffirm where the most true oppression exists. So, BIPOC means "Black and Indigenous People/Person(s) of Color", who are (according to post-modernism) some of the MOST oppressed people, and therefore are deserving of their own term.
BaiLing, you are a Chinese American. You barely qualify as a POC. I, however, am a Native American two-spirited vegan, AKA, a BIPOC. Because I have more melanin than you, I am far more deserving of society's empathy and special treatment.
