    So. my question is this: Will the next census include 'Nigga' as an option, in order to appeal to the younger hiphop crowd?

    Maybe they should include "Halfrican" so that Obama and Tiger have an option.

    "Negro?" Really? What the Hell, is there a follow up about how many "pickaninnies" are living in the household? Christ almighty, step into the 21st century already.
