There was a piece in today’s @globeandmail that I won’t link here but feel compelled to share my thoughts about with you all. Essentially, the author, who is a philosopher by discipline, argues that the term BIPOC is un-Canadian and should be replaced by the term FIVM. /1
FIVM is a term the author appears to have made up all by themselves to refer to Francophone, Indigenous, and Visible Minority populations. He writes that French Canadians were victimized by British Colonialism and deserve to be recognized. /2
The author lauds Canadian multiculturalism while stating,

“Canada has not sought to racialize what amount to ethnic differences among peoples.”

There are so many things wrong with this article. It is appalling that such a ridiculous piece was published.
