What's wrong with "colored people"?

I wondered the same thing.
In the UK census we say Black, Asian, Chinese, and White. There are a few more specific like Caribbean Black, Irish white etc. Is 'black' offensive in the US? What about 'Brown people'?

ZOMG! "Colored people" = bad but "People of color" = good.

Both parties need to die in a fire.

African American, even though they are not African, and not all Americans. I have friends who are offended by the AA term. I usually just say Black.
