1 ... People, objects, and descriptive social interaction of these things together, which in the brightness of light, can objectively be viewed in hues offered in the color spectrum, with each of those colors being able to be filtered out completely by the color black or the color white.

2 ... In socialology: .... The colorful arrays of cultural expressionism from a society of people.
We are all colored by the societies of people we associate with.

A theoretical sub-tier of racism that is both invented by and about non-white people who are too scared of calling themselves racist.

Also used to accuse non-racist people of racism without using the word itself.
Person 1: They cast people of color in this movie.
Person 2: But the director employed colorism; all the actors are white!
Person 1: But they're literally Native American and Brazilian...

Something that we all are. Colored does not just mean Black anymore, that is only a stereotype. Here's a list of what color a race is associated with:

European-Americans=White
African-Americans=Black
Hispanic-Americans=Brown
Native Americans=Red
Asian-Americans=Yellow
It shouldn't matter what color you are. I am accepting of all races. There are people of every race that I don't like, but that is the same case with everyone in the country.
I honestly don't care if your white, black, red, purple, or orange, race is not an issue with me!

mistakenly thought of as an "object of color", however there is no color 'out there.' Color is merely certain nanometers of electromagnetic energy that (lucky us) our eyes can register as color. Most electromagnetic energy cannot be processed by our eyes, for example, radio waves, or radiation. Thus what we see is only because of our eyes.
