A group calling themselves 'The Multi Color Coalition' has filed a complaint with the Oklahoma Attorney General's office, seeking to gain status as a protected minority group.
"We are wrongly judged & excluded because of the colors of our skin"; said Thor Erickson, an organizer for the group.
"There is not one single elected official who looks like us or advocates for our right to equal representation."
The group claims to have suffered massive employment discrimination and other forms of social persecution.
We asked about their end game and what sort of societal changes they want to see.

"We can't be blamed for things that we can't change."; said Agatha Amazon, a young businesswoman who owns a chain of body art studios.
"So we seek a society which looks more homogenized and identifies with this persecuted group. We urge people to at least sure some token identification with us, so the public will finally come to terms with the discrimination of the past decades."
"Reparations are certainly justified. But for now, we just want main stream inclusion. If we had some basic set aside or legislative quota for inclusion, we could go a long way toward a remedy."
