    His usage of the word colored didn’t offend me at all, or maybe I’m giving him a pass because he’s a British actor because if an American actor(anyone under the age of 80) would’ve said it, I would have been a little more shock. The shock wouldn’t have been out of me being offended, but out of how outdated the word is.

    ¿ What if he had said “actors of colour” ?

    Or “The National Association of Colored People should urge more diversity in the hiring of actors of all colors.”
