Last night, Baratunde Thurston, Christian Lander and myself were panelists on Don Lemmon’s show: the segment, without commercial interruption, is on the preceding post, below. We started to scratch the service about the subject of racial categories on the census, particularly the term “Negro.” While this was an important topic, we had other thoughts we wanted to share.
