I think we've come full circle. Time to go back to using the "N" word.
"The head of the European golf tour apologized for using the term ''colored'' during a live television interview Thursday in which he was reacting to the spat between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia.
European Tour CEO George O'Grady said that ''most of Sergio's friends are colored athletes in the United States.''
The word ''colored'' was once widely used in the United States to refer to African-Americans but it is now considered antiquated and offensive. In some African countries, it is used to denote individuals of mixed racial ancestry.
''I deeply regret using an inappropriate word in a live interview for Sky Sports for which I unreservedly apologize,'' O'Grady, who is British, said in a statement released later Thursday."
