Sigh... I usually stay out of this crap, but I think what Jennifer means is that this word is now antiquated and considered derogatory by many. There are other words that could be descriptive, but most people try to choose the ones without negative connotations. When the word is misspelled it is even more cringeworthy. In this day and age it is somewhat equivalent to referring to me as colored.
