To call someone a "person of color" is currently a socially acceptable way to say "non-white". I bristle too much to use it because, like cruder terms, it's a superficial classification by color. I don't use the term "white", either. Instead, I get to know people on deeper levels such as personality and life experience. It has made all the difference.
