So... what's up with North Laurel, the HoCo part? People of color tell me it's wonderful; people without color tell me to stay away. There are a great deal of beautiful homes for sale and they are reasonably priced for Howard County... the schools seem pretty good too... Should I be wary? Do I sense possible white flight? Or is just another case of people equating a bad area with black people?

People of Color is definitely not the same as "colored people" - it's actually a term of endearment for all brown people! A group I proudly belong... the real question is, are you serious?

semantics...

if you want real answers, take color out of the question, you'd get better responses.

This is funny... I don't know any people of color that are offended by that term.

I think the term is weird because every human being has "color." I have yet to meet a transparent person, but maybe I have just been looking right through them
