How many times does the Japanese media have to remind readers that Naomi has a Japanese mother and Haitian father. Does it really matter? I am sure the world know this.

Why the article didn't show the Manga pictures, or at least Naomi's character photo?

The character is definitely a person of color

Every character is a "person of color". Is there anyone without color?

Don't take phrases too literally - expressions develop their own current meanings

Ex: "co-ed" literally means boys & girls - but currently means just girls, so don't call a boy "co-ed"

"Gay" means happy, but be careful who ya call that

If you're white, don't call yourself a "person of color" unless you want some misunderstandings
