Thread Name: BS: A person of color and a colored person
Subject: RE: BS: A person of color and a colored person
The problem with "coloured" is that it was used for a long time as a noun, as in "no Irish, no coloureds." "Coloured person" still carries a hint of that pejorative. It's definitely best avoided. The other thing, of course, is that your car is a car, not a human being.
