A fiery blast from the past is conjuring controversy in the new millennium. The word "negro" is now featured on an official U.S. document and now many are questioning if the Census Bureau is being insensitive.Thank you Democrat Party, Bertha Lewis, and Rham Emanuel (who I assume will be checking the box next to "Hebrew") for a wonderful trip down memory lane to 1950... Do they even listen to themselves when they talk? I'm seeing precious little evidence that they do. Any of my gay sistas going to be checking the box next to "Honky Fag"?
It's a word that many African Americans associate with segregation, so imagine how shocked many were to see it on the 2010 U.S. census form.
"The fact that it's 2010 and they're still putting 'negro,' I am a little offended," said Secaucus resident Dawud Ingram.
