Commentary: Reid had it right

Somebody please tell Harry Reid there are no Negroes in America. There haven't been since the late 1960s, which is when black people arrived and drove that term out of favor. The person who uses it without irony, as Reid did, paints himself as a geezer out of touch with the last 40 years, the kind of person who still calls rock music a fad. That said, there is little else to complain about in the quote from the Senate majority leader that has political types hyperventilating.
