Jack Kukoda (writer for Community, previous staff writer for The Onion) joins Andrew Ti to talk about whether or not referring to white people as “people without color” is racist or not. Remember to call us at (323) 389-RACE to ask us about anything you might think is racist.

I wouldn't say it is racist or offensive, it's just kind of stupid.

I kind of thought the caller was using the term to make fun of the phrase "people of color" not white people.

Personally I prefer "melanin deficient"... I agree with the sentiment that you can call white people pretty much anything. Without the structural, societal imbalance to back it up, none of the "slurs" for white people really burn.
