"Pose" star Indya Moore landed in hot water when they vented on Twitter about a white person referring to them as coloured on Saturday.
You know, sis. We love you deeply. With that said, please reach out to those of us doing the work every day to pick this apart and understand that it means something different here. Ask the right questions first, please. https://t.co/QI6RFHkpEt

People consistently deny and erase the validity of your identity and what do you do?? Come to ANOTHER COUNTRY and try tell a whole group of people that their identity is invalid because America told you so? I need you to make it make sense babes. https://t.co/XT7O6wd1Mx

americans trying to pick apart and invalidate the south african coloured identity just bc they don’t understand it will forever be embarrassing to me. especially bc it could all be cured with some quick research. they really live in their own little bubbles.

You were called coloured cuz you fit the stereotype of how coloured people in SA look/are represented. That isn’t about YOU. Your “Normal” isn’t our frame of reference just because you’re American/came here to vacation without doing a single google. Educate yourself or shut up https://t.co/rcjtuNK2dn

This is so infuriating. I’m disappointed in Indya. They really just came at this from a point of ignorance instead of reading up on the nuances of race withing the country.
And this is the problem with Black Americans coming from a point of ignorance and entitlement. https://t.co/tDxLhQSgDD

Look I can understand why a Black American who is unfamiliar with our race dynamics would feel triggered at being called Coloured by a white person. I truly do. But what I can’t stand is digging in your heels and dismissing people who are trying to educate you

They blocked me cuz I pointed out that there are dark skinned coloured folk and light skinned black people. They are in Cape town for a minute and assume they know all about the coloured community …. 🙄
