Today, I apologised to someone for my misuse of the word 'coloured' in a discussion about ethnic minority issues. They then got even more angry and said that to even quote the word in the context of an apology is evidence of my ignorance and inherent racism. FML

People who get offended by the use of the word coloured, are just being ridiculous. I live in SA and that's what anyone who is mixed race calls themselves. To us that is a race.

Fuck everybody these days

People need to stop getting offended by such things so easily, because being offended doesn't necessarily mean you're right.

How dare you even know the word coloured! Can you imagine how those poor pencils feel?
