- Listen up, you ignorant assholes...there's no right or wrong way to spell it.
It was originally 'colour', but early Americans decided that the 'u' was unnecessary, so they changed it to 'color'. What's so wrong about that...they thought it made a lot of sense. And what's wrong with the original spelling...obviously that's the way the Brits liked it!
I can't believe some of the postings on here...with the Brits calling us 'lazy' and 'stupid' for changing the spelling of a word, and with us calling them ridiculous because their version has an 'extra letter'...for Pete's sake, it's a fucking WORD.
Language evolves over time, so deal with it and stop bitching about insignificant things, like everyday language. There's much more important stuff going on out there...

2. One of the words that's most popularly debated about the correct spelling of. Color vs Colour.
In the USA the spelling of the word is 'color'. Many 'Yankophiles' (people that live outside of the USA, but admire the USA) also spell it this way.
In the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, etc. the correct spelling of the word is 'colour'.
Anglophiles in the USA (Americans that admire England) also spell the word 'colour'.
There's no real correct way to spell the word, if it's officially adopted as the correct spelling there. That's why in the US, they speak American-English, not exactly English per se.
