Glenn Beck: “African American Is A Bogus Term, Not A Race”
Glenn Beck is continuing to piss people off with his statements. A number of people were upset after hearing Beck speak on his radio show about the recent use of the term “negro” on the 2010 U.S. census form.
As previously reported by Bossip, the 2010 U.S. census form asked people to identify themselves as, “Black, Afr. American, or Negro” while their fairer skinned counterparts were simply described as “white.”
While debating whether the term “negro” was still relevant in 2010, he had this to say about the term “African-American.”
“African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that's not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa and now you live in America. Ok, so you were brought over — either your family was brought over through the slave trade or you were born here and your family emigrated here or whatever but that is not a race.”

Do you agree or disagree?
If you're family is not from Africa, are you still African-American?
