Glenn Beck Knocks 'African-American'

Glenn Beck says he doesn't have a lot of African-American friends because he's prone to "open" conversations where he "would say something that somebody would take wrong." No wonder: While discussing the new census form Beck's co-host noted that the question about race refers offers a box for people who are "Black, African-American, or Negro," leading the co-host to be conclude, "I don't know what the race is, because there's three different terms for them." And while most folks seem to be taking issue with the "Negro" of that equation, Beck then went after "African-American," calling it "a bogus, PC, made-up term" adding "I mean, that's not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa and now you live in America." On his Fox News show, Beck previously asked a group of black conservatives why they identified themselves as African-American because, "I don't identify myself as white, or a white American."
