Maybe it's a British thing, but over here we still call people "Black". I
was unaware this was racist, whereas as calling someone coloured is more
so. I don't think people are quite so race obsessed over here in Britain.
That's not to say we are unaware of racism/prejudice, but we don't seem
to get as het up about it as Americans.
