Well, it seems you spend a lot of time around black people to know so much about how all of them talk. Why don't you ask one of your many black friends why you can't say the n word?

Barac isn't black he's 1/2 white so the proper term is colored. He is white with a bit of black thrown in which colored him brown.

"Black" is the correct term...or biracial. saying "colored" is like calling an Asian "Oriental." Though, I don't think Lohan meant it in a demeaning way--she's just not very smart.

Generalizing that all blacks get offended by these words is not cool, and the media loves to incite anger that isn't even there. The word "colored" may not mean a thing to some people. No one is saying all these words are offensive. You may have some people get upset, but you can count them on one hand. Look at that individual person. How old are they? What time period are they from? The word "colored" was used during a certain period and some people remember when that word had a negative meaning. My grandmother remembered when "gay" meant "happy". That wasn't that long ago. So don't think every black is offended by these words. As time progresses, a new generation is growing up with new meaning to these words. I don't blame Ms. Lohan, she was trying to be polite and didn't know what term to use. Personally, I think he's the first bi-racial president and multi-cultural. He is both African, and American.

Tell me how people's ethnicity was referred to in an inaccurate manner. NAACP's acrinym stands for the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People. Also, tell me how much sense it makes for people to chastize people for referrring to them as colored. Shouldn't it mean something that a civil rights organization that is well known and highly regarded as them calls THEMSELVES colored?

The name is archaic and should be changed. "People of color" is the PC term used to described non-whites.

"Negro" and "Colored" were both commonly accepted words 40 years ago. They no longer are due to the negative connotations associated with them. Why do you feel so strongly that we should refer to people in a term that is percieved as derogatory? Does it hurt anyone to have some sensitivity?
