I found it dimly amusing that in reading Hilton Als' article about Othello and describing how some people take offense to racial epithets and stereotypically negative depictions, I was "put off" by the phrase "reader of color".  I don't take offense to the term really.  It's more like kitten claws scraping a blackboard: slightly annoying, but contextually tolerable.
