I don't think that 'coloured' is considered acceptabe these days mate.
Yes. Coloured when applied to a human being is a bollocksed word. It has no value or status.

Yes. Coloured when applied to a human being is a bollocksed word. It has no value or status.

But this is the problem with vocabulary and terminology changing over generations

I’m of an age that remembers Basil D’Oliveira being referred to as the “Cape coloured cricketer”. It was used in the media and was totally acceptable at the time

Some time later, the term “coloured” was deemed offensive and was replaced by “black”   

Now, under certain circumstances as I understand it, that is no longer acceptable, and has to be replaced by “person of colour”

I’m sure that in a few years, long after I have departed, calling someone “a person of colour” will be classed as offensive

We should not always judge yesterday’s standards by what is considered acceptable today

John Terry was a good player and coach for us. Personally I don’t care about anything else he does.

I do. At the end of the day he played for us in a game. Although it's a passion and a life long love it's a piss around and a pass time.When I see peoples homes being turned to rubble and their life's goals reduced to nothing then I don't and won't support anyone to do with us celebrating an enabler of it.

Fuck Terry.  Gormless prick, theirs more to being a good human than throwing money at a game.

I hear his NFT has dropped in value by 90%. I am very surprised.

Is that anything to do with XG?
