Dropping the color attribute.

Many times in the media, from friends and in the industry, I hear terms like:

  • The black person
  • My white friends
  • The colourd neighborhood 
  • Etc.

In all these cases I would have understood it perfectly if they left out the skin color.

I believe that dropping the color when referring to anyone is the best way to remove the racial divide that we’ve created in our minds.

If you try, you may find that there are better ways to describe the people or person you’re referring to.
