Last week I was watching TV with my SIL and her husband and they were telling me about the contestants on some singing show we were watching. Her husband said "The colored girl is really good." I was kind of shocked, but didn't say anything. I know he didn't intend for it to be offensive, and my SIL didn't even bat an eyelash (she is white, but her 13 yo son is mixed as am I). I asked DH and my MIL and they both said it's a term that really should not be used and I agree.

To madmuller... Not all black people are African American and not all African Americans are black. There are actually quite a few white people that were actually born in Africa that consider themselves African American.
