Love watching my old agency struggle to retain their BIPOC talent and seeing on LinkedIn that all their new hires lately have been white men. Their diversity stats were already abysmal (even compared to the rest of the industry,) but it makes me laugh knowing that it's just getting worse for them.

How do all my fellow Black & brown people in this bowl feel about using POC (people of color) vs BIPOC (Black and Indigenous people of color)?

I ask because in the spaces I've run in before, when you were referring to non-white, Black and brown people, POC worked. But now I'm (and other friends are) confused by the rise of BIPOC—it seems like a way to act like you're focusing and prioritizing Black and Indigenous people, when you're still just referring to everyone who isn't white.

Thoughts?
