NEGRO

DISCLAIMER
Let me just say that this piece is meant as a piece of humorous writing and is in no way intended to be a racial slur. It is simply a humorous observation.

Why are people averse to being called negroes? I guess it’s a cultural thing that has evolved over the years and I guess I can understand the collective sensitivity of a people that have been so unkindly treated down through the ages. Healing from that must imbue a sensitivity to being singled out in any form.

That being said, I personally think the word is, at least phonetically speaking, kind of attractive. “Negro”. It certainly rolls off the tongue well and sound-wise is pleasing to the ear. It’s kind of elegant, like the word egret or nouveaux. I mean hell, I’m a CAUCASIAN. The word “negro” sure beats the piss out of that word. CAUCASIAN…sounds like an oriental putty-person, fer God’s sake. Or worse yet…CAUCAZOID! Christ Almighty! You just KNOW that word was invented by some tight-assed white guy. Shit! Attack of the CAUCAZOIDS…COMING SOON TO A THEATER NEAR YOU. Nope. Don’t like it.

So, in closing let me just say that you all can call me a negro anytime you’ve a mind to.
