Black, white or grey

It seems I offended someone on twitter last night!

Whilst watching Silent Witness I recognised one of the actresses but for the life of me couldn’t place her, so I tweeted for help!

The actress happened to be black, but I referred to her as coloured which caused offence!

I don’t consider my actions as racist, I was simply describing the actress in the hope that some could tell me where I knew her from (it was Holby City in the end).  But, it has stayed with me today and I hate to think that I have upset someone.

I hate all this political correctness malarkey and although I do think there are terms and names that should not be used, it can be a struggle to know what is correct, so, I am handing it out to my blogging friends – what would you say?
