OK. So Kermit's father-in-law will have been born in a colony that subsequently ceased to be one, hence the 'ex' refers to the current status of the birthplace and not (say) the former residence or lifestyle of the individual.

Colonial - of, relating to, or characteristic of a colony.

He was settled for a few years in Kenya before the Mau Mau uprising.

Actually it's on the telly quite often, but when Guy Gibson calls out his dog's name the word "boy" is awkwardly dubbed over it.

Not when I last saw it which doesn't seem that long ago. I was waiting to see whether the WORD would be used, and, much to my surprise, it was.

I think that 'coloured' is more appropriate and seems kinder than 'black' but society seems to disagree. Terms are changed intentionally to make it seem as if we've turned a corner. But we havent

Yet 'person/people of colour' is now the in vogue term. Mental.

Thanks. I stand corrected.

You can't airbrush history just to pander to loony zealots. People used to use the word and historical drama, especially if factual, should reflect that.

I tend to agree with this as long as it not gratuitous or the context would be lost or much diminished without it. I think the remake of Roots used it as did the original and they would be so much less powerful evidencing the dehumanisation processes that went on without it.

Blimey. If they didn't use it in 'Roots' then I would really worry that the world had gone bonkers.

There were Indian troops at Dunkirk and Hattie Jacques Barbara Windsor and Joan Sims were the nurses so if the film did have women and ethnic soldiers it wouldn't have been veering off from the truth.

They usually do dub it but in more recent times not.

FYI, the dog that played the part was actually called Blackie.

It's all a bit like the stoned to death for saying the 'J' word scene in Monty Python's 'Life of Brian'. Of course the word is offensive and not one I would use, but there are loads of offensive words and loads of words offensive to some but not to others.

If you actually give a s*** about this then you seriously need to find bigger things to worry about.

Stop being afraid of words an they can't hurt you.

As for this woman. She has apologised but there can't be many who would use a phrase like that in a professional capacity nowadays. Someone needs to remind her that we aren't living in the 18th century.

Wow, some people just never let you down, there you are the HOLs very own Nigel Farage, frothing at the mouth, telling people off for being concerned about a politician being racist....heavens above, dont they know those bloody refugees need shooting?!

Do you even know where that expression originates from, you racist throwback?!!

It refers to slaves hiding in wood piles , in their efforts to escape in the US.

Its wrong on so many levels, that anyone would use it, let alone a politician that its pointless even trying to explain to you and your ilk why.

I bet you love telling people "I'm not racist, BUT...."

Closet racism is still racism, but there's none so blind as those that wont see.
