[quote=kaleidoscope]Well, I would say technically 'dark, curly-haired kid' is a label. Laugh What if you're albino? Then just about anyone is 'darker' than you. Laugh I could also ask why is he describing the kid in physical terms at all versus saying "there's this new kid in class and he's super nice. We both like ----. He sits next to me in class..." etc, etc?

I don't hear people referred to as red or yellow. (Maybe only in books - otherwise I don't recall ever having heard it.) Only Indian or Asian (or oriental - which I've heard is offensive because oriental is things like rugs, not people.) Unless you count 'rednecks'. LOL [/quot

I believe the descriptor came as a response to "Which one is he?" Wink

Oh. LOL

*shrug* I like descriptive terms so I can form pictures. So for me using words that (somewhat) easily describes someone is better. Especially since some ways of describing people (skin tone, hair color, etc.) doesn't always give the right picture.
