I am very much disappointed at this site's use of the term "colored" to refer to a baby birthed in the last episode of the first season of Nip/Tuck!!! I do believe that saying "an African American baby" would have sufficed. Even saying "black" would have been fine. I just simply cannot believe it. Therefore I will be creating a big deal about it in words so that others can view it about your word usage and this site. Congratulations to IMDb. I was very much enthused about using and siting this site in a positive way for my report. It doesn't look like I will be doing that. Instead I have to spread the word about this outrage and I'm not usually one to quickly get offended at things. Thanks a lot for this. Good luck on the future.
