whhat silliness! and WHY do blacks think this is named after some black man? NEGRO means black in Spanish, so it could be like just Black Creek. But please don't let this troublesome minority dictate to you. They wish they could change your history, don't let them. They are trying it over here as well.

they should have changed it to black miners creek.
the word "n@@ro" means black and was used to refer to black americans for hundreds of years.
there is obviously history surrounding this "creek" that pertains to my peoples history.
