Atsargiai, žemiau išvardinti terminai gali būti priimti kaip įžeidimas!

Refers to people or language of a continent, not a country. Of or pertaining to Africa or its people or languages. Do not use as a synonym for black.

Also used for black. Preferred by some, but not universally accepted. May be objectionable to those persons preferring black.

An adjective. Do not use as a noun.

Refers to Americans of African descent. African-American or black are also being used. Do not use "colored" as a synonym. See "colored" entry.

In some societies, including the United States, the word is considered derogatory and should not be used. Exception: when used as part of a title, as in the National Association for Colored People. In some African countries, it is used to denote individuals of mixed racial ancestry. Whenever the word is used, place it in quotation marks and provide an explanation of its meaning.

Archaic. Use black, Black, or African-American. Check for preferred local usage.
