I like the word “colored”because we all have many hues and shades to our skin.White people are not white,nor are black people black,but the the word colored became a pejorative.
You can’t say someone is colored,but you can say “person of color”.
Gads! What madness.

That's similar to not being able to say "poetry book", but saying "book of poetry" is ok.
