    U.S. Army apologizes, will drop term 'Negro' from policy document


    (Reuters) - The U.S. Army has issued an apology and will no longer use the term "Negro" in a document on policies and procedures as an acceptable alternative to African American.

    The Army Command Policy, known as AR 600-20, said "terms such as 'Haitian' or 'Negro' could be used in addition to 'Black' or 'African American.'"

    The issue was first reported by CNN on Thursday. The Army dropped the term the same day and issued the apology.
