Paul admits to being an
unintentional bigot as a boy

From Time

Paul McCartney in re Muhammed Ali

Note: In 1966, Paul used the pejorative "colored" during an interview. He wasn't saying it in a racist context; he simply didn't know that word was frowned on by nonwhite communities and all who were up to speed on racist language. It was the term he knew at the time and thought it was acceptable. He admitted over the years his lack of exposure to people of darker races, but fortunately music brings people together.
With a love like that, you know you should be glad, yeah, yeah, yeah!-- Beatles, 1963

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind. -- George Harrison, 1966
