What's the difference between the word "Colored" and the words "People of Color"?

Isn't it the same exactly thing? So, how did "Colored" get to be "inappropriate"?

    The truth is, if Trump ever used the phrase, “people of color “, it too would become inappropriate.

    "Colored" is an old derogatory term that was used years ago. "People of color" is a modern phrase that was chosen by the people it references. Although the same, historical significance and context is the difference.

    The communist infiltrators who had brought us POLITICAL CORRECTNESS and have been tirelessly eroding the fabric of American society for the last 75 years - in their quest to change America into a fetid socialist and then even more FETID COMMUNIST STATE - have put speech codes upon us

      Gilgamesh King of Heros - Why not THINK. WTF is the difference between the two? NOTHING. IT IS ORCHESTRATED. And it you think this country has not been INFILTRATED BY THE COMMUNISTS, YOU ARE FRIGHTENINGLY NAIVE AND TERRIBLY IGNORANT

    Blacks like using the term people of color so they can increase their pathetic numbers and claim other people's culture and history. Blacks are only 12% of the U.S. population and the only history and culture they have is slavery and thug culture. lol

    Jerome, look up the band Kraftwerk.
