why did they feel the need to put 'Black, African Am., or Negro'?
did they think this would offend less, rather than more?
do they have some subtle distinctions that i am unaware of?

also, aren't they are conflating ethnicity and race?

I actually have an ebook of Mitt Romney's...er, hagiography to Bush II-era sociopathic disregard for the lives of others.  It's really that bad.

I heard this on NPR: it was because older African-Americans LIKED the term and wouldn't check "Black" or "African-American."  They wanted the term "Negro" put on there and requested it for the 2010 Census.  No troll.

Well, there PACs and NGOs, etc. that use "Negro" in their title--to wit, "The United Negro College Fund," etc. (www.uncf.org

Anyway, here's an article on it:
http://wcbstv.com/national/negro.census.form.2.1409469.html

Quote
Question #9 on the this year's census asks about your race. One of the boxes you can choose is "black," "African American," or "negro," all placed next to the same box. Ingram said it's not a word he uses to identify neither himself nor anybody else.

"African Americans haven't been going by the term 'negro' for decades now. It's really confusing," he said.

But census officials disagree, saying they found some older African Americans identify themselves that way and they're trying to be inclusive. In a statement, they said: "Results from the census in 2000 showed that a number of respondents provided a write-in response of 'negro' when answering the question on race."

In fact, Congress approved the form more than a year ago.

...language is a strange, beautiful and fucking frustrating animal.

What the shit is he even trying to SAY with that sign?
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Something racist and supposed to be "old skool" Bush Sr. with "Voodoo Economics," but it hits WAY wide of the mark.

A more pressing question, I think, is how they survived to be adults when they are CLEARLY too stupid to live. :sad:

ETA DISCLAIMER: This isn't a dig at ECH and what was brought up in Nigel's thread. I really meant what I said. Please to not shit-fling.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in
