The word “Negro” may no longer
appear on a US census after this
year, thanks to a woman who took
offense to the term and voiced her
opinion directly to the Census
Bureau Director on live television.
The whole thing went down on C-SPAN
Friday when a caller challenged the
use of the dated term “Negro” to
describe Americans of African
descent, which appears on the 2010
census alongside the terms “African-
American” and “Black.”
