A term sometimes used to describe non-white people, usually as an alternative to saying minorities. It's literally the same thing as saying "colored people", but somehow it's okay because the syntax is changed.
Joel: Hey man, what's a good synonym for "minorities"?
Marcus: How about "people of color"?
Joel: That sounds a lot like "colored people", I dunno if that's okay...
Marcus: Nah fam, I just switched the order, so it's totally fine. Besides, I'm black, and you know black people can't be racist.
