"Colour" or "colours": which one should I use in the sentence?

1- Don't make fun of people for their screen ​colour/colours.

What are "people's screen colour(s)"? Do you mean "skin colours"?

I think the preposition is "about", not "for".

Please don't edit post 1 of any thread once it's already received responses. I have changed the word back to "screen" in post 1 so that posts 2 and 3 still make sense.

Use "colour".

I would use colour of their skin, but it's a sensitive area, so be very careful in English.
