My home teachers took my roomates and I out for ice cream at sub-zero tonight. One of them got ice cream with little M&Ms in it and I had this thought:
When we think of "colored M&Ms" we think of the red, blue, yellow, orange and green ones, but not really the brown ones.
When we think of "people of color" we think of the brown ones, and not the ones that are pink, yellow, or whatever other color of person that may exist in this wonderful world.
And come to think of it, "colorful language" rarely actually involves the speaking of words describing any colors found in any rainbow I've ever seen.
Funny how that works...
