Coloureds are culturally and ethnically different to Blacks even if some people want to incorrectly call them the same.
Just because they are darker than white does not put them in the same category. You need to check names for simple clues. eg Ntini = Black African, Prince = Coloured.
Yeah i know, but unbeknown to some, black is in fact a colour. I know what you're talking about, but i don't think it's fair to call cricinfo writers out on calling a person with black skin black.
