    Yes - you are overly sensitive and don't like it when people do not respect those sensitivites. Get over yourself.

    Meanwhile, I'll continue to use the term 'colored' because that's what the NAACP uses.

    Hmmmmm…
    I doubt anyone is completely devoid of color, even albino people.

    Thus, I resent any suggestion that any one group has the sole usage of a word I can easily use to describe everyone on the planet.
    At the same time.

    Yes, well, tell the NAACP that they represent white people and see what that gets you.

    Well, how do they define "black people", or "colored people", or whoever they claim to represent?

    Depending on the method of definition, they may or may not represent some "white people".

    I'm 99% sure there's a white person out there whose great-great-something-mother was a slave raped by her owner.

    Should the NAACP not rep them cause' they have white skin? What's the purpose of the NAACP, anyway?

    Following after my message are some quoted paragraphs from the wikipedia about the NAACP. You don’t have to read the entire thing, but from what is hereby presented, that NAACP is of the black, by the black, and for the black deserves no skepticism, and that the term color people used by NAACP excludes white, or European descendent, deserves no argument.

    How they decide who are black people, colored people? Nobody can do this for them except themselves. However, in the daily social practice, we can say that those who can be judged as carrying African heritage and must take advantage of the affirmative action at his own decision must be in the category of black people or color people. If this person is barred from enjoying affirmative action, NAACP will not hesitate to help. If a white person complaining unable to enjoy the benefit of affirmative action, checking if his “great-great-something-mother was a slave raped by her owner” will be the last thing that the NAACP will care to do. In the agenda of NAACP, NAACP never lists the whites or the European descendants as victims of Jim Crow Law and white supremacy .

    Declaring NAACP don’t know who black people and color people are, you are insulting their intelligence. Don’t do that. You don’t want to indicate black people are ignorant people, do you?

    Oh, there are more people who can define who black people or color people are. If you happen do not know these knowledgeable people, I can tell you how to find them with 100% confidence. These knowledgeable people declare the following:

    “AIDS is invented by the white to kill the blacks”
    “Some white say ‘do not hold me responsible to what my ancestors did’, but you (the whites) are beneficiaries.”
    “What is the matter with you blacks? If you want to have freedom, you must kill the white crackers.”
    “If you don’t vote Barack Obama, you are a racist!”
    “You must know this country will be ruled by the blacks”

    Is the above familiar to you? If not, you have not been living in America.


    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, usually abbreviated as NAACP (pronounced /ˈɛn ˌdʌbəlˈeɪ ˈsiː ˈpiː/), is one of the oldest and most influential civil rights organizations in the United States. [3] Its mission is "to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination".[4] Its name, retained in accordance with tradition, is one of the last surviving uses of the term colored people.
    The NAACP bestows the annual Image Awards for achievement in the arts and entertainment, and the annual Spingarn Medals for outstanding positive achievement of any kind, on deserving African Americans. It has its headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland.[5]

    On May 30, 1909, the Niagara Movement conference took place at New York City's Henry Street Settlement House, from which an organization of more than 40 individuals emerged, calling itself the National Negro Committee. Du Bois played a key role in organizing the event and presided over the proceedings. Also in attendance was African-American journalist and anti-lynching crusader Ida B. Wells-Barnett. At its second conference on May 30, 1910, members chose as the organization's name the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and elected its first officers,


    In its early years, the NAACP concentrated on using the courts to overturn the Jim Crow statutes that legalized racial segregation. In 1913, the NAACP organized opposition to President Woodrow Wilson's introduction of racial segregation into federal government policy, offices, and hiring.

    You'll need to ask them. I'm just taking their use of the term 'colored' as a mainstream acceptance of the use of term 'colored' to describe blacks and other 'people of color'.

    Why do you feel a scaring tactic will support your judgement? Why do you think that your correctness is linked with other's preference? If you need others to show the American way in debate, please show that you follow the same way, too. This is the minimal self-respect.

    Who does?
    They are teh worthlessz
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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.
