Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

A recently-updated US Army handbook has been found to include “Negro” as an approved term to use when describing black people.

The unclassified document outlines the military’s “Army Command Policy”, known as regulation AR 600-20, and features a set of racial “definitions” in a chapter on equal opportunities.

Sandwiched between descriptions of what “prejudice” and “racism” mean in the context of the armed forces, a paragraph on “black or African American” reads: “A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa. Terms such as ‘Haitian’ or ‘Negro’ can be used in addition to ‘Black’ or ‘African American’.
