in the past couple of months, i’ve heard at least 3 times, people referring to specific visible minority groups as ‘colored people’. 😐
is this term on a come-back? last i checked, this was an offensive term.
‘people of color’ is another term i’ve heard though not as often. in all honesty, i know this is suppose to be the more ‘politically correct’ term but to me, it’s not that much better.
my honest opinion? take the time to find out what this person’s ethnicity is or don’t make any comments at all.
it may not be fair to call all these people i’ve encountered using ‘colored people’ in their reference to other visible minorities racist – but i can definitely call them ignorant and even lazy.
