Census Racist?

Well 2.5 million dollars later, we've been schooled that we need to fill out our census forms when they arrive in the mail over the next few weeks.

But it looks like the race card playing perpetual victims are pissed off over question #9.

"The U.S. Census Bureau has become enmeshed in controversy over the use of an old bit of nomenclature to identify race on its 2010 census form.

Indignation has risen over Question 9, which asks for the person's race. Next to one of the 15 boxes that can be checked are three classifications: “Black, African Am. or Negro."

Apparently negro is now added to the list of "bad words".

Well I'll tell you what, if they don't have an "other" box where I can write in American, they aren't getting anything from me.
