    It’s like in Australia, the left have dreamed up an equally stupid distinction.

    If you say “Aboriginal”, that’s okay, that’s respectful and proper, but if you say “Aborigine” that’s terribly racist and bigoted.

    And yet both words are from Latin, and the only difference is that they’re using an adjective for a noun.

    The conceited vain stupidity of the leftards certainly is hard to fathom.

    as a colored leftist, it doesn't really matter. its not trendy to say woc/women of color, and its not racist to say colored. just be nice to people regardless of skin tone and we'll be good.

    I don't understand the word "color" because we all have a color. We are all "women of color" A person has a right to be a racist if they want to, it is no crime and one should not be called names for what they believe even if it does not agree with others.

    How about "another color'? It doesn't specify anyone.

    Colored was used back in 1874

    Probably just because the word colored was used during a time where there was segregation and even more hate and accepting of racism

    People want a special status when they are really descended from Southern Europeans.

    It depends on where you live. "Coloured" is acceptable in South Africa, but in the US, Canada, and the UK, it is not. Why? Do you get a hard-on saying that? If so, why so?

    Just call them brown people unless they go the Michael Jackson route

    Actually they’re trying to breed the colored out by producing half white babies aka Oreo’s
