Someones colour has never been an issue with me, I don't care if they are white, black, red, yellow, pink or brown, it makes no difference as far as I'm concerned we're all just people with the same feeling and emotions and sensitivities. So the last thing I would ever want to do is offend anyone by calling them by something they found offensive.
My husband sometimes goes on a football (soccer) forum where this topic has come up because one of the player of the team he follows is dating a girl of African origin. The posts were all very positive - saying she was a very stuning girl - but someone called her coloured and was told this was unacceptable. Others said black was unacceptable too and now I feel totally confused - I know I'm white and I don't have a problem with that although I don't particularly like getting called a Jock or Scotch because I come from Scotland - what is offensive and what is PC these days?
