My mother still refers to anything marginally darker than that as n!!!!r brown.  She is 87.  I have a client of the same age who talks about fuzzy wuzzies.  I feel sorry for the oldies as they cannot get their heads round pc.  In 1970s Yorkshire it was considered extremely polite to refer to Asians as coloured.

I'm waiting for all my manufacturers to stop describing the colour of their products as nude because of fear of upsetting anyone.

From the article:

"Why not call it cocoa, caramel or chocolate - sweet dessert items? But they used tobacco. I was shocked when I saw it.”

Why is cocoa OK but tobacco not? 


Here are some pics of cocoa and tobacco; they are clearly different colours, doing the bra is the colour of tobacco, why can’t M&S describe it as such?

And a picture of the complainant. From sussex they say?  Fine old English name she has too.  o.O

xD Those were my words too when I read the story out loud in the office today. “Beautiful British name” as Al Murray would say.

I think that they are fooling no one anymore. Yet they still keep on with the same narrative.  xD

Does anyone remember that production of the Four Feathers from the 30s? There's a commentary on a battle and I'm sure someone is saying the the Fuzzy Wuzzies are entering the fray.

Fuzzy Wuzzies has been the correct terminology for the Sudanese since the time of Gordon of Khartoum.

is she shocked when she sees someone smoking because it reminds her of slavery ?

That's what I assumed, either that or they somehow think the world 'tobacco' itself should be banned because it might encourage smoking.

The 'story' made me laugh though. Ultimate lazy 'journalism' - manufactured outrage plus craven apology from M&S, probably took them ten minutes to put together. Eventually they'll create some sort of app that can do it automatically.
