dc.description.abstractWe begin this chapter by discussing responses by members of our team to comments on articles submitted to major international journals focusing on health research. Recently, when one of our manuscripts was close to being accepted, the editors asked the author team to change its use of the term “coloured” to “mixed race”. Shortly after this, another journal asked us to change the term “coloured” to “people of diverse origin”. Some years ago, we were asked by a journal published in the USA to change our use of “coloured” by describing our (South African) research participants as “African American”! Lastly, when a reviewer read a manuscript we wrote about the Mamre Community Health Project, a project in a South African community where most inhabitants identify as “coloured”, we were asked to expand on the rituals and practices of what the reviewer called “the Mamre”. In this particular case, the implication was that there was an African tribe called “the Mamre” similar in nature, we assume, to “the Nuer”, a “tribe” described by Evans-Pritchard1 in the middle of the twentieth century.en_ZA
