Discussions Present
and Future

Within the Black community there is an ongoing diologue about the language we use and how we describe ourselves. With Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME), People of Colour (POC) and Black Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) all serving different reasons, grouping and dividing non white groups. Personally I understand the need for terms for research terms when investigating these experiences, it feels like these terms can other those who are non white under a monolith which ignores the struggles of each group, particularly diluting the experiences of Black people.

Within our community, we have our own issues to address of colourism, transphobia solidarity to push for justice and reform for equity over our health, education, safety and success as Black people.
