    Red face one can connect to the spirit / description

    1) What do we call those people who can connect themself to the spirit of the dead which use those people's voice talking to their friends and relatives. (like the lady acting in the movie "Ghost")


    2) Is it insulting to describe one whose complexion is black (eg African) as black people. If yes, how should I describe them in a respectful way by complexion if I don't know their nationality?

    a) one whose complexion is black ?
    b) one whose complexion is white?
    c) one whose complexion is yellow?
    d) one whose complexion is fair?

    Many thanks / ju

    A medium - (plural - mediums).

    2) Is it insulting to describe one whose complexion is black (eg African) as black people. If yes, how should I describe them in a respectful way by complexion if I don't know their nationality? There is practically no inoffensive way to do this apart from saying (for instance) "of African/European/Mediterranean/Oriental appearance".
