Conservative ex-Fox host Beck says term 'colored' is 'not a bad thing'
New York, Sep.1 (ANI): A conservative radio host, Glenn Beck, has questioned the use of "African-American" on his Tuesday show, arguing "colored" or "black" is more appropriate.
Fresh off the heels of his Restoring Courage event in Israel, Beck asked his co-host, Pat Gray, "Correct me if I am wrong. Didn't you feel ridiculously stupid everywhere in Africa, in Europe, in South America, in Jerusalem, when you would say the words 'African-American?'"
Gray responded, "Oh, yeah, because it doesn't apply there," to which Beck said, "It doesn't apply! Now, how can people be one thing in one country and nowhere else in the world?"
His co-host asked Beck what the correct phrase is. Beck exclaimed "black," adding "colored" was appropriate, too, arguing that it is used in places like South Africa.
"It's not a bad thing, only here. Why are we made to feel bad?" the former Fox News personality said about the term "colored." (ANI)
