    How to use "Negro" in context?

    Negroes are descendants of African slaves and their descendants. Slavery in the Western Hemisphere was abolished in the late 18th century and people of African descent were gradually given full rights. In South Africa, the majority of the population is black, but there are also people of other colors. In the United States, blacks and other people of color are the majority of the population in some states, but they are a minority in others.

    Despite their differences, black people are united by their experience of racism. Racism affects every area of black life - from the way people are treated at work to the way they are perceived in society.
