is calling blacks 'colored' as derogatory as calling them the 'N' word?
I'm watching the DVR'd Housewive's of DC reunion show, and they are talking about it, and I hadn't ever thought about it. I know back in the day, whites would call blacks 'colored', but I never thought that today it was thought of as derogatory. I guess I hadn't thought about it because it's rarely said, or I rarely hear it. But, is it derogatory?
