I recently posted this question on black travelers and China (it was my first on Travel.SE). Relatively early into the question, someone changed the title from reading "black travellers" to "dark-skinned travellers", with their explanation being that this made the question more "politically correct". (The body of the question still refers to black travellers)
As a new member of the community, who had less rep than the person making the edit, I am reluctant to unilaterally change this edit. However, I am uncomfortable with the edit for several reasons. For a start, as far as I am aware, "black" is not politically incorrect, and indeed, I think referring to black people as dark skinned can be potentially offensive (since it reduces black identity to just skin color). Furthermore, my question referred to naturally curly hair, which is something that specifically black (rather than just dark-skinned) travellers have to deal with. I asked my travelling companions, whose experience prompted me to ask this question, and they all said that they thought "black travellers" was more appropriate.
However, as I said, I am new to this community, and as Travel.SE is a global site, I am sure that there are global issues with the word "black" that I"m unfamiliar with as an American. Therefore, I wanted to ask the community: Should I let this edit stand? Or ought I to change it back to the original phrasing?
