When I buy lottery tickets I can't sleep because my brain won't stop asking who I'll give money to and where I'll travel after I win (which I'll obviously win).

Has anyone ever tipped a flight attendant? In general I think the practice is bizarre, but I see so many posts online about ppl tipping or giving gifts/gift cards to flight attendants. These aren’t underpaid service workers, these are salaried employees with benefits, why would I give them a gift card for showing up to work and doing their job?
Note - in general I absolutely do believe in tipping, I’m a standard 20%+ tipper in restaurants, etc., but not for full time professionals

Sorry if this is a bad question but I’ve tried to google and found conflicts. I’ve seen a lot on social media to not use the term “person of color” when referring to a black person. I’ve also seen companies touting diversity on Instagram like “30% black, 55% person of color...etc.”. I’m wondering, what ethnicity/ races are they referring to when they say “people of color”? I’m guessing black +others? Is it everything non white (Latino, Asian, middle eastern etc)? Is it only some Asians?
