Shady Persons of Color

How people can think this way--can think that there's such a thing as a "race traitor"--and not have their heads explode, that's one of the marvels of my world:
A group of liberal activists at Claremont McKenna College in California called out minority students and faculty who disagreed with their cause by placing them on a “shady person of color” list, the Claremont Independent reports.

Students involved in racial protests on the campus in November circulated a list of public demands, such as the resignation of the college dean and the creation of a permanent “safe space” on campus.
A private version of this document, however, also includes, for reasons unknown, a list of SPOCs — Shady Persons of Color, a term that was often invoked on campus at the height of the protests — arranged as members of a royal court: King, Queen, Prince, “Ignorant” and Court Jester.
These same people, though, would blow a gasket if you tried to describe their behavior as an attempt to keep these minorities on the plantation.   Don't want anyone getting too uppity, knowwhatimean?
