How can I remove ALL color tags from FCP X without removing or changing the color tags from the Finder?

Short Version:
How can I remove ALL color tags from within FCP X without removing or changing the color tags from the Finder?
I also have various text ‘Keywords’ in the Finder tags, which I do plan to use for FCP X organizing purposes.
 
Longer Version:
When I imported the first batch of files, they were imported into FCP X with ‘keyword tags’ with every color from the Finder tags rather than the ‘Text Tags’ I spent so much time entering and organizing. I have no use for color 'tags' in FCP X, though use 'color tags' for other purposes.
 
Unlike the traditional source-file-organizing process of editing a film, commercial or music video, where a project (or timeline/sequence) is from one main source, I’m pulling media from 30 TB of external-drive-sources to edit multiple ’Demo Reels’ of my work. The content consists of video, stills, 3D models, 3D animations, sketches, drawings, blueprints, etc., and color-coded (tagged) the various files and folders for my own (non-edit related) purposes/references.
 
The color tags reference client category, good or bad color-rating for a ‘reel’, type of project, etc. I don’t want to deselect or change every color tag from every file in the Finder, as there are thousands of color tags in the various files and drives.
 
Is there a method of only using FCP X to remove all color tags before, during or after the files are imported?
 
I’m using FCP X v10.4.3 on macOS High Sierra and source files from multiple external USB 3.0, Thunderbolt and FW800 drives.
 
Thank you!

Just delete the keywords out of FCPX. It won’t effect the Finder.

Or delete all the footage out of the library, turn off the create keyword from finder tags option, and reimport.
