    Why not? If they use the term to descrie themselves, it must be OK to use the term to describe them.

    If you are white, and someone is in the mood to be racially offended by you at that moment, "Colored" will be offensive.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I believe I addrsssed this.
    Their leading organization refers to them (and others) as colored. If that's good enough for them, then its good enough for me.

    The qiuestion is - why isn't it good enough for you?

    Isnt it a good question? How black to you have to be to be considered black?
    1/2 1/4? 1/8? 1/16?
    I mean, lets look at Nichole Richie (Lionel Richoe's daughter) and Djimon Hounsou. Both are black, and yet...

    It depends on what you mean by "have to be".
    To get a minority scholarship, probably any amount of provable, traceable black blood will do.
    I know a blond, blue-eyed guy who got financial assistance with his college tuition because he's one-eighth Cherokee, and was able to produce documentation to prove his bloodline.

    Another blonde, blue-eyed coworker- the quintessential cheerleader type- I always thought her last name was Haycum or Haycolm. That's how she pronounced it.
    Then one day I saw it written: Hakim.
    I joked with her, "What are you, a middle-easterner?"
    She told me her great-grandfather was from Syria, although he converted to Christianity immediately upon arriving in the US, opened a shoe shop, and eventually became a Christian minister and opened his own church.

    I mean, since race is such a superficial thing, basically once you look white, people are going to assume you're white and treat you as if you're white; even if they find out later you have minority blood in you, their basic perception of you is not going to change.
    I believe that anyone who looks white enough to universally pass for white is the beneficiary of white privilege.

    I wonder when I will benefit from this **** that 1069 keeps blathering on about incessantly.
