"People of colour" 17:23 - Aug 1 with 466 viewsDafyddHuw

Wtf is all that about?
We're all people of colour - North Europeans are mainly pink, Scandinavians are mainly paler, Aborigines are mainly black, Indians are mainly brown, North/South Americans are mainly any old colour, etc. all over the world.

Referring to somebody as a "person of colour" seems to imply that "white" people are of "normal" colour, whilst everybody else aren't, and are therefore deemed to be "people of colour". That just seems racist to me.

Why don't we just call a spade a spade (no pun intended). I'd never be offended if somebody described me as white or pink.

PC gone mad?

P.S. Is this post racist? I just have no fùcking clue any more.

Calling someone that is indeed a racist term.

Pedantically white and black aren't colours - they are the complete absorbtion of and total reflection of light respectively.

Calling South American’s any old colour could potentially send this board into meltdown.

Even more pedantically. You have it the wrong way around.
