Presented without comment:
For census purposes, it is certainly appropriate to list Negro as a race. Question No. 9 on the form asks: "What is person 1's race?" The options include Black, African-American or Negro. Many people emigrating here from other countries prefer and are completely comfortable with being identified as Negro. Personally, I prefer to be recognized as an American sans color – something for which I am routinely criticized by liberal blacks.
I personally detest and reject the assignation African-American. I've said many times that Teresa Heinz-Kerry is more African-American than I am. At least she was born in the East African country of Mozambique.
Political correctness and malevolent agendas enhanced by ignorance are the primary causal factors that lead certain blacks to view Negro as being representative of Jim Crow. It is worth noting here that at the time blacks were referred to as Negroes, over 80 percent of the households were married, with two parents, 40 percent of those being business owners.
Today, when we have an insistence on an assignation that in factuality is remote at best, we have a pandemic of single-parent or no birth-parent homes. We have witnessed the genocide of over 25 percent of the American black race due to abortion.
It is irreconcilable to me that the addition of the assignation "Negro" is more grievous than the aforementioned. Even members of the Black Panther Party of the '60s and early '70s decried abortion as leading to the systematic extermination of blacks.
