One of the most clever ways of lumping every biped on the planet together, regardless of the ethnic group or geographical location, is to call everybody 'people', accompanied by human beings and the human race. And then they can get into more syrupy expressions like 'the brotherhood of man'. They say we all bleed red. Well, so do dogs, snakes and skunks. White Christian Americans are guilty of calling other bipeds 'people'. It's easy to do with decades of cultural propaganda and the language saturation of change agents. No doubt, there are those who would object and say “what's wrong with that?” The answer is lingual and biblical. At one time, the word 'people' only meant White persons... the true descendents of Adam, which is translated 'man', and has likewise been hijacked and diffused to imply every biped on the planet. The Bible has ostensibly become a book of confusion, because we have lost the meaning of the word 'people'. There are many more words that have been tortured, but 'people' is #1.
