The US Army has revised its internal guidelines that previously allowed for black service members to be referred to as “negro.” The policy was updated to retain “negro” as late as Oct. 22.

The Army’s about-face occurred Thursday after it was first reported this week by CNN that official regulation guidelines that cover “Army Command Policy” included the “outdated” term in ways to describe black or African-American troops.

“The US Army fully recognized, and promptly acted, to remove outdated language in Army Regulation 600-20 as soon as it was brought to our attention,” Lt. Col. Alayne Conway, an Army spokeswoman, said in a statement, according to USA Today. “The Army takes pride in sustaining a culture where all personnel are treated with dignity and respect.”

Conway said AR 600-20 ultimately outlines the Army’s commitment to “provide (equal opportunity) and fair treatment for military personnel and family members without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, and provide an environment free of unlawful discrimination and offensive behavior.”



“We apologize to anyone we offended,” she added.
