So have I, and do so now. The thing is, I did so out of friendship or good convos with a community member, not because they are poc or a woman. And, they buy me drinks.

I have bought countless drinks for women of color. Sometimes it worked out quite nicely.
I see less racism in bars and honky tonks than I see on ATS.
agree. I had the same thoughts recently. It's absurd semantics.

I don’t understand why “people of color” is an alright term, but “colored people” is offensive. Gotta love the semantics.
As for buying people drinks, based solely on their race, that is, by definition, racism. Of course, the regressives don’t understand what that word means, unless they’re using it to attack people.
There are some of us that have worked with Native American tribes on various development and justice programs. But yes, too often In the US native Americans are forgotten. Which is bad, because they actually have higher rates of poverty, non communicable diseases, and high school drop out than other minorities.

Yet the Native Americans say the firewater destroyed their people.
Are they falling for this old trick once again?
It funny. There seems to be no thought on that. We've pretty much swept that under the rug and forgot it.
