Little Known Black History Fact: Negroes and the Census Bureau

Comments: 2  | Leave A Comment

The U.S. Census Bureau considered changing the term in 2010 but said that there was still a significant amount of people in the south that identified with Negro vs. black or African American. However, after further and more recent investigation, the bureau found that a growing number of people find the term “Negro” offensive, even equating it to the slang and historical N-word.

While the term Negro is rarely used in describing African Americans today, the description is still used in proper titles such as the United Negro College Fund.
