Are Riverdalians against Gentiles and/or folk of color, even though they are overwhelming 'Liberal Democrats', or what?

If you're willing to say, what specifically happened to you there that causes you ask such a generalized question?

(My big brother taught me, when someone is upset, the best question to ask is, "What happened?")

Why do people use the term Folk? It sounds way to southern...

Anyways, Riverdalians are about as against POC FOLK, as people in Wakefield are "against" wypipo.

People of color is a commonly used term to refer to all nonwhites. It's not considered derogatory the way "colored people" is

That being said, I still don't like that term

Ironically that sounds like a term the alt right would make up, so not sure why activists embrace it
