People of Color (PoC) with significant disabilities experience the highest negative rates in nearly ever quality of life category: morbidity and mortality, income, education, employment, housing, self-determination, institutionalization, etc. The disparities are grounded and reinforced by the synergy of social, attitudinal, and political factors external to the individual. Should institutional racism, cultural incompetency, and benign colorblindness be incorporated into redefinition of "significant disability"? If so, what are the implications for research, policy and systems change?
