White supremacy is reasserting itself in the U.S. Military

 

AFRICANGLOBE – The newly updated Army Command Policy regulation, most recently published on Oct. 22, 2014, says that Army personnel can use the word “Negro” when referring to “Black or African American” personnel. The Army confirmed to CNN in a report Wednesday that the language was contained inside the document, also known as regulation AAR 600-20.

 

While the document is regularly updated to reflect new regulations or alterations to old ones, an Army official says it’s not clear when they word was added; it may have been present for years.

 

The wording appears in Chapter 6, under “Equal opportunity policy,” stating: “A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. Terms such as “Haitian” or “Negro” are allowed to be used, in addition to “Black” or “African American.”

 

According to the CNN report, an Army official with knowledge of the document said that the word may have been added so that a Black or African-American person would have the option to identify as a Negro. However, a military officer who specializes in personnel issues for the Defense Department called that reasoning “the dumbest thing I have ever heard,” explaining that the Pentagon does not use the word in any of its demographic data.

 

No plans have been announced to remove the phrase.

I never understood why we have such a hard time with defining ourselves

 

We keep coming up with new got damn terms that mean the same thing.

 

Colored, Negro, Black, Moor, Nigga, Nigger...I mean it's the same word over and over again just different root languages. It means dark skinned. I mean there are Black people in Australia and they really ain't African. 

 

Then it's Afro American, African American, American African...

 

I mean we shouldn't be so word conscious but different terms mean totally different things to us.

 

To me it's ALL THE SAME THING...it's just HOW people say it or the context. But even then I kinda look at it like

 

"Being called Black and being called a Nigger is just the same thing."

 

It's just the literal definition of words is kinda what I interpret. Probably because I am a literal person. I say what I mean and I expect other people do also. I don't like ambiguity. Nor do I have a soft skin so context means little to me because I am focused on what a person is actually saying. 

 

I wish we would stop using what we call ourselves to bolster our self esteem and identity, it's getting ridiculous. At this point, it should be about what we DO instead of what we are called.

 

White people only got 3 terms for themselves. White, European and Caucasian.

 

We got about 12. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We're goin' into the Army?? Why don't they try "Sir" or "Mam"? We're dyin' to be called "Negro" and to protect a country that calls us "Negro" on good days and "Nigger" on bad ones? We get shot down here; shot down there; shot down everywhere!!!  We really should be called the "Shoot'em Ups"!!!! U.S.A. is we sick?????  Yes, we is!!!!!!

Moral to this story...Black people just stay out of the military.  they just don't want you

 

Black people just can't see, or want to accept the 'SIGNS' all around us.

I am old enough to remember the old Black/Negro argument.

 

I looked up Negro in my dictionary.  It is from Latin.  It means Black.  Black comes from Anglo-Saxon.

 

The problem is people get emotional about words.  We are supposed to argue about which HONKY LANGUAGE we are called by.  I thought it was dumb when I was in 10th grade.

 

It is this African-American crap that bothers me.  Too many syllables.  I am supposed to give a damn about being American?  The stupid White people in this so called CAPITALIST country can't even teach accounting to all of the White kids even though they say double-entry accounting was invented in Italy 700 years ago.  Isn't this country named after an Italian?

 

Equality means being as Dumb as White Folks.
