Now if this isn't silliness I don't know what is - I'm surprised Quanell X has not come out against it, being it happened in the Houston area! Seems the word "negroid" is RACIST! It's become the new "n" word. Funny, Caucasoid is not a racist term, neither is Mongoloid, but Negroid is racist. Sounds like those people who thought the word "snigger" was a racial epithet. A 'civil rights activist' says she is outraged by the insensitivity.
The word Negroid is used by anthropologists working in craniofacial anthropometry.
Some people would see racist comments if you said Hello how are you? I think.
A racial slur... I think not!
Some people need to get over themselves, and stop looking for racism in everything, including white bread.
