Color and colour are different spellings of the same word. Color is the preferred spelling in American English, and colour is preferred in all other main varieties of English. The distinction extends to all derivatives of the word. Colored, coloring, colorer, colorful, and discolor are the U.S. spellings, and coloured, colouring, colourer, colourful, and discolour are preferred outside the U.S.

I still never understood why americans add letters

I thought it was traditional/formal English not American/british English

AND WHY DO YOU CALL CHIPS CRISPS/CRISPS CHIPS

WHO IS THE ODD ONE
