Must not call blacks "colored"?

In that case the NAACP are seriously out of line
"BBC pundit Alan Hansen is the latest to come under fire in football's race row after making an embarrassing gaffe on Match of the Day. The commentator - who is paid a huge £40,000 per show - shocked viewers by twice describing black players as 'coloured' when discussing the John Terry and Luis Suarez cases.

Fellow pundit Lee Dixon looked on in apparent discomfort as Hansen, 56, said: ‘I think there’s a lot of coloured players in all the major teams and there are lots of coloured players who are probably the best in the Premier League.

‘If you look at 25 or 30 years ago it was probably in a bad way - not as bad as some of the other nations on the Continent - but certainly there is always, always room for improvement.’

The ex-footballer had been discussing the separate allegations that England captain Terry and Liverpool striker Suarez have hurled racist abuse at other players on the pitch.

It's funny how those who complain about others using the word colored, always manage to ignore the glaring example of the NAACP. Using words like colored and nigger are always ignored when they're used by blacks, which is of course, the sign of a true racist.

This story is yet another example, (we seem to see another one almost every day) of how the Brits are being strangled by their very strong addiction to political correctness. And yet, i see no outcry from the British people, so one must assume the addiction is not simply in the govt., sports, or media, but a national one.

"Beware of those who cry racism, for they are the true racists..."

Levy - you are wrong I saw a CNN report showing the entire British nation (English, Scots, Welsh and Northern Irish) protesting in one voice against PC. In fact just like the citizens of the US always have a universal opinion on any issue!
