a friend of mine is half Egyptian (and half white). We used to joke that she's African-American. However, a quick glance at her skin will tell you she's not a person of colour. See this is the trouble with classifications.

The real point to ponder is why is it ok to call someone White of Black, but it's not ok to call someone Brown, Red, Yellow, or anything else colourful.
