Re: What to call a Black person
You must refer to a black person as African-American. But you can call them a person of color, but not a colored person.
Right on!! So, I wonder if Bill Cosby called Obama colored, would Newsday's reaction been the same?

They should change NAACP to NAAAAP...It would be more fitting. That pronunciation would probably be "NAP", with the emphasis on the long "A".

He is colored and if he could have passed for white he would have eagerly jumped to the white line and had a white wife.

I heard the clip. I thought she said "that kind of president", not "colored". Even so, is "colored" a bad word?
Technically he is the first evenly tanned President

People, People, People. Ms Lohan is technically correct. Because of the mixture of the 2 maybe more racial blood types President Elect Obama even in his home country would be concidered as coloured. It is only in America where such a thing would be made into a big issue. That is because we are sometimes ignorant. Maybe Ms Lohan knew exactly what she was saying.
What the hell is a racial blood type? There is no difference in the blood of a Northern European, a Pakistani, a Kenyan, a Turk, a Sicilian , an Brazilian, a New Zealander or a Scot.

Cosmetology lesson 101. The hair of Black Americans the tight curl the flexibility the ability to withstand heat and cold is because the cortex of the hair is alive. The hair of the White American on the other hand all of the things that are listed above are absent this renders it dead, thus the perm. I thought I would just throw that in there for future reference. <quoted text>
HAHAHA! Thank you Dr. Brame...you should be in one of those hair product infomercials.

Why is it ok to name the NAACP with the words "colored people", yet it is considered an insult??? Are you people (yes, you people) kidding me?
