No Mo Negro – Census Bureau Dropping The Term.
What am I now? I have been a Negro all my life. Now all of a sudden I am no longer a Negro! Now I am Black or African American depending on who is looking I guess. The Census Bureau is dropping “Negro” as a word used to describe Negroes. Did something happen that I missed. I was perfectly happy as a “Negro”. Now I have an identity crisis. So does the United Negro College Fund. What’s next?
