People of colour
A guide to race and ethnicity terminology and language, published by The Law Society in December 2020, suggests the term people of colour: ‘…is primarily used in the USA and has not been fully adopted within the UK although it has become more popular. Some perceive it as a more positive term than BAME/BME because it does not assume or make reference to a majority White race. However, others see it as similarly problematic as BAME or BME, in that it groups together people of great ethnic diversity and different shared experiences and identities.’
