I'm more offended by the term African-American. But the term negro has some adverse history as well.

Why?

I'm not really offended but I grew up with the term.

Ya it is baffling. I noticed for hispanics/latinos they have Spain, Cuba, Puerto rico etc listed. Don't know why African-Americans and blacks are the only options.

i wouldn't want to be referred to as such but it doesn't bother me because anyone who is older than 70 probably relates to that term more so than "black" and especially AA.

i read something in the past few years, a latin country, i think PR, just added "negro" to the census, because the old folks wouldn't out themselves as being black otherwise.

at first i was thinking that maybe it was because whites making those forms don't give a damn and only see black and then i remembered that black americans do the same thing.  anytime a person says theyre from DR, Panama, Jamaica,Guyan or anywhere other than america there always a black american saying "so you still black"LOL

maybe thats why

African or black is fine for me. I have never met one person irl saying negro. It sounds all type of 1896. It would shake me up somebody calling me a negro.

What's wrong with African American? It sounds great!
