Back when America was awesome, black people were called “Negroes.” Sure, the title may have implied that black people were a separate sub-human species, but everyone was cool with that until the ACLU or ACORNS probably filed a lawsuit against it and America and the troops. Time for a comeback! And look, it’s on the 2010 Census form as an option, right next to “black” and “African-American.” Will “Person 1” be forced to write in, “ALL OF THE ABOVE?”

Although it would be monstrously absurd for anyone to take offense at some comical old-timey word’s inclusion on a friggin Census form, we do enjoy the Census spokesman’s face-saving rationale:

Question No. 9 on this year’s census form asks about race, with one of the answers listed as “black, African-Am. or Negro.”

Census Bureau spokesman Jack Martin said the use of “Negro” was intended as a term of inclusion.

“Many older African-Americans identified themselves that way, and many still do,” he said. “Those who identify themselves as Negroes need to be included.”

Ha ha ha. Elderly Negroes may not actually know that the modern world now refers to them as “black” and/or “African-American.” The softened terminology people come up with these days! Might as well call ’em Irish.

Really, what’s much more confusing is the racial option below it: “American Indian or Alaska Native.” You think the likes of the Palin family will be able to decode that second part? Maybe “Native American Alaskan” or “Alaskan Indian” or “Whatever Mexican Thingy They Have In Alaska” would work better.

Use of word Negro on 2010 census forms raises memories of Jim Crow [NYDN]

    We should support the Census. The Census will tell us how deep our negro problem is. And until we have adequate information, there’s really nothing to be done about it.

    Even worse, African American is abbrv’ed as African Am while American Indian is spelled out. So it’s not 3/5 but 1/4?

  • CarlosQC

    It means “black” in Spanish, its intended for Afro descendants of Spanish speaking countries to mark their true race. We are not Hispanics, nor Latinos, those are not races. Also, we Indigenous peoples who speak Spanish will have the chance to mark such. Get educated, no?

    *******, negro or black, any of the 3 definitely beats spear chucker, jig or the other n word. I don’t see the problem. I’ll never call them African-American, the main reason being it takes way too long to say it. black is the best name I think.

    Yes, because the other n-word is more offensive than spear chucker or jig. New York truly is the melting pot Bloomberg always talks about…

    WTF if it is meant as a way to encourage black Hispanics to identify themselves then come out and say it, but this bullshit argument that older black people love the word is, well… just Bullshit. I had all but rationalize that the word was included as to the benefits of black Mexicans( All Spanish Speaking PEOPLES are MEXICANS, therefore by the transitive property of crazy, if you’ve ever uttered a word in Spanish you become Mexican)The word is antiquated in the English-Speaking world and to explain its recent inclusion with that bold-face lie that smacks even worse than the word itself in its most demeaning connotation is quite an achievement. That guy needs to be kicked in the balls.

    It’s sad to see otherwise intelligent Wonketeers taken in by the Daily News’ always awful premises. I wasn’t familiar with the preference explained by Carlos QC above, but I know that a significant number of African American old folks are not comfortable with “black,” which was a very derogatory term to some about 60 years ago. The polite term in the 1950’s and early 1960’s was “Negro,” and many of the leaders of civil rights movement used it. Back then the nastier term was “colored,” which was used by the George Wallace crew. As the great Tampa Red often noted during his songs, everybody’s colored (even us pink people). Ironically, the term “people of color” is offered by non-profiteers today with great moral pomposity. Moral of story: if you find yourself agreeing with anything put forward by the NY Daily News, sit, breathe from the stomach, and wait for it to pass. It’s the newspaper of What Rupert Really Thinks.

I know self loathing exists in varying quantities in Latin American countries, but that doesn’t mean the census is going to be geared towards negating it. Plus, what would seeing the word for “black” in Spanish do to assuage self loathing dark skinned Latinos? We also have the cited explanation from the Census Bureau spokesman, which does not at all mention anything about accomodation for Spanish speakers.

    I’m gonna go with the most likely scenario, which would be that of an out-of-touch government producing an out-of-touch census.

    [re=490017]CarlosQC[/re]: Look Carlos, you are making an obvious point that the term “Hispanic” has no biological meaning whatsoever and by implication, its correlary, that ethnic self-designation in Latin America is especially fluid. But you are also so full of shit that your eyes are brown when you suggest that because “Negro” literally translates to “Black” it would be the natural choice for Afro-Latinos. That is just grade A baloney. Within Latin America, the accepatable term for one with African heritage is Afro-Latino, or country specifics like Afro-Colombiano. Negro in Spanish has the same connotation..negative..that it does in English. So, get educated, no?

  • Katydid

    Never mind teh Blacks, the African-Ams., the Negros, the Census People have really gone out of their way to offend teh Hermaphrodites, teh Intersexed, teh Gynandromorphs, teh Androgynes, and teh Epicenes.

    On one of the forms (the long one form, I might point out), it insists that you check only one box for sex, and offers only two options: male or female.

    I demand to know why it doesn’t include a third box with all designation for people lucky enough to have all or ambiguous sexual organs and/or traits.

    Sure, some of my best friends are gynandromorphs, but, as someone with a dearth of male phenotypical junk, I wouldn’t presume to speak for people with different phenotypical junk.

    Where is the outrage for the epicenes among us? I mean, think of poor Mann Coulter. What will s/he check on the Census form?

    [re=490031]user-of-owls[/re]: Not so much, being negro has been always ‘offensive’ in racist Latin Americans, but today’s generations of Blacks in the region are taking pride on their ‘negritud’. There are more Blacks in Latin America than in the U.S. [over 160 million people] and many Spanish speaking immigrants in the U.S. and their US born children have African roots as well. Somewhere I heard that Sonia Sotomayor is ‘Blacker’ than Clarence Thomas.

    Anyways, Negro has another connotation in the English language, because it was the word British slavers heard from Hispanic slave sellers to refer to Black men, period. Someone thought Negro was a synonymous of slave. Now, the N word is a different story, that’s a pure racist insult created by… you guessed right.

On the other hand, “White” don’t cut it either, since I’m really more of a pinkish-tinged cardboard color with some seasonal variation. What’s a poor cracker to do?

    I’m actually grateful when the form allows me to check more than one box off, so at least I can acknowledge my “aboriginal American” forebears who were not above copping a little whitey on the side. (I actually have a fairly involve essay on this topic, for which common decency forbids me including the link here.)

    [re=490192]BeWoot[/re]: [re=490058]Cy_Guy[/re]: Caucasian is a term from the old racial categorization system, abandoned because it’s fucking racist and based on discredited science like craniometry. The reason it’s named that is because Blumenbach thought Georgians were the most beautiful people in the world and thus obviously the root stock of all crackers everywhere, since we have such nice beards and nipples.

    There are subtypes of Caucasian, too! Nordic, Alpine, Mediterranean, Iranian, Dravidian, etc. They’re also all part of a lot of racist bullshit, because Nordics are the most awesome and all of the rest are less awesome, but still better than non-Caucasians!

    Oh, and the other Blumenbach races are Mongolian, Malayan, Negroid, and American. All of these are more or less racist bullshit, too.

    So “Caucasian” is a worthless fucking term that nobody should use, and nobody with a degree who isn’t writing for VDARE really uses it anymore, either. “European” works for the (incredibly broad) ethnic category, and “White” is what the sociologists say you are if you can be a Republican anyone listens to.

I was laughing the entire time imagining a presentation where some Phd student kept using the terms “Negroid” and “Caucasoid” and the committee just sitting there slack-jawed.

    The statement that Alaska Natives are stupid is extremely racist. You should be ashamed.

    [re=490083]TheUptightMidwesterner[/re]: Reminds me of a rather unsubtle joke heard recently:

    Q. Why are there no [insert group] in Star Trek?

    A. Because it’s set in the future.
