Political Correctness Is Driving Me Mad

Why can we say "people of colour" but not "coloured people?" Obviously, the word "coloured" has nasty connotations, so why not completely avoid using it to describe human beings? Making a distinction that can get a person cancelled and sacked between two phrases that actually mean exactly the same thing makes a mockery of the English language.

If I catch anyone saying collared greens rather than greens of collar, I will report them to the thought police!
