Thread Name: BS: A person of color and a colored person
Subject: RE: BS: A person of color and a colored person
I haven't heard of the term 'coloured' being considered offensive in North America - just hopelessly old-fashioned, and redolent of the bad old days. I've haven't heard it in years, but wouldn't be surprised if I did from some older person ("Bill, this coloured guy I used to work with, ....").
