DNC member who called blacks "colored people" resigns — National Association for the Advancement of Colored People had no comment

Florida Democratic National Committee member John Parker is facing calls to resign from African-American activists and other party members, including his own wife, after he referred to blacks as "colored people."

Parker, a Florida state committeeman, told Politico that he simply mangled the phrase "people of color" and didn't mean to say "colored people" at a January party meeting at the Burrito Gallery in Jacksonville.

But not everybody believes that explanation, and some argue it wasn't an isolated incident.

Diallo-Sekou Seabrooks, who attended the meeting, said Parker "freely used" the phrase "colored people" and that he expressed concern Jacksonville would become more like Atlanta, a city with a majority-black government, First Coast News reports.

"Why would you still think that ‘colored' was cool? Because to me it's a Jim Crow terminology and it's unacceptable," Seabrooks said.

Providing for that facts that the democrats founded the KKK Woodrow Wilson was quite a racsist himself and the late Robert Byrd was a Grand Wizard in the KKK wearing his bedsheet

So the phrase "colored people" is now politically unacceptable. Someone on the left might want to tell the NAACP, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
