Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

2010 census

with one comment

So its that time again. Yep time to fill out our census forms. This time i get to feel out a form and not being included as being in the household with my parents. So as I was filling out my form i noticed that one of the options for race used the word negro. I feel some kind of way about this. Leave the past in the past in this day and age there is a better way to say his which was included in the options but why do we need the word negro as an options. Is honky included in tone of the options? no!!! Come on america its seems like everytime we try to move forward there  is always a set back.

  1. One of my past blog was actually on this same topic and I felt like it was unnecessary to include the word negro in the census because that word just brings nothing but the absolute worst that happened in the past.
