Interesting. I only remember my Louisiana/Mississipi relatives using "colored" (and, unfortunately, they were not precisely without prejudice), and not any of my relatives that grew up here in central Texas. I was uncomfortable from the beginning with the word because of the connotations they gave it. Of course, my memory from that early on may be faulty, too.... :) ObConLang/DeLurk: I have a couple of sketches of conlangs I built for an FRP campaign world, but they're not ready to go on the web yet....sorry....
