Recently a coworker was telling me another one of his fishing stories. He is an older white male, mid 50’s, and a very nice, respectful person who loves to fish. Has always been respectful to everyone at the job and enjoys sharing his fishing stories with myself and anyone else willing to listen. During his most recent story, he was telling me about how he and his buddies were catching perch from Lake Erie while out on a boat. He went on to say how they were searching for a good spot to fish and came upon a group of guys who said the fish were biting there. He said,” We came across these guys, you know these coloreds, in a boat having a good ol’ time.” I am a young black male, late 30’s, and from history as I know it the word ‘colored’ is not acceptable in the black community. I really didn’t know how to respond, but knowing the person who said it I didn’t take offense because I felt he meant no harm. I laughed about it with other coworkers later and never mentioned it again.
