Sorry Blues. With respect. You are still not debating my point.
I have taken great pains to point out to you that in my original posts on that masters athletics forum I did not mention the colour of the suspended masters athlete in any way - i.e. neither coloured nor non-white. It was not an issue for me. However, the racism card was still unjustly used against me, unfortunately by a non-white and with the concurrence of the admin who suspended me instead. I would prefer you to debate that, instead of trying to guide me towards the politically correct terminology in such a condescending way. You are looking for and finding fault, where there is none.
As to the racism card. You may think I am some sort of racist through guilt by association by being naive of contemporary terminology in the USA. If that is what you are trying to say.
But there are social developments in many countries of the world to keep up with. There are more countries in the world to keep abreast with than the USA. However, I am an educated man of 73 and I may know more of this than you think. When I was younger, non-white people in the USA were called negroes, blacks, even niggers. Then at some stage they were called "coloured." That was considered a great advance then. It still is.
Blues, are you "non-white" by chance? If not, you do not really qualify to tell me what terminology to use. So I would like to hear from a "non-white" as to whether or not that person takes offence at being called "coloured." Do it in a PM to me. This is not the forum.
