Negro – English editing.

The word Negro was adopted from Spanish and Portuguese and is first recorded in the mid 16th century. It remained the standard term throughout the 17th-19th centuries and was even used by prominent black American campaigners such as W.E.B. Dubois and Booker T. Washington in the early 20th century. Since the Black Power movement of the 1960s. however when the term black was promoted as an expression of racial pride, Negro (together with related words such as Negress) has dropped out of use and is now likely to seem offensive in both British and US English.
