Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) is an acronym used to identify Canadian’s ‘visible minorities’ or people who are victimized by racism and white supremacy due to the colour of their skin. There are important differences between the history and extent of colonialism experienced among the Blacks through slavery; Indigenous people through genocide, and the People of Colour through more recent racist immigration policies.
