The Washington Times once again taught me something I hadn’t known: BIPOC (“‘So much shame’: Woke left-wingers increasingly embarrassed over White ‘privileged’ status,” Web, March 8).

Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) is now another group and acronym that has been added to our ever-expanding vocabulary describing every special constituent.

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott has stated that if “you or anyone in your household identifies as” BIPOC, then you “can sign up to get a vaccine.” According to the current cancel culture’s use of the word “identifies,” it seems a person can wake up one morning and simply “identify” as something other than what they were born. People in Vermont now have their governor’s authorization to become Black, Indigenous or a person of color at will — legally.

How long will that last if every non-BIPOC Vermonter decides to become BIPOC and sign up for the vaccine? Will BIPOCs be able to ‘identify’ as non-BIPOC?

It’s just too confusing. How about if we all just go by what is on our birth certificates? The doctors that filled out those forms were/are pretty smart.
