Somehow or other, I thought it was illegal to ask your race. Then again, every form has race and gender boxes. I was watching a video by a young Latina who described her dilemma when filling out these forms. People from Spanish speaking countries come from many mixes of people, so...what then is Lationo/Latina?
I fill out the form as a 'white', although I am never comfortable with that. It always rankles me! Didn't Hitler make it a point to kill all those Jews because Jews weren't white? So, when did I become white? When I moved to Florida? In fact, the only time I have ever been white was when I moved to Florida.
Instead of focusing on 'race', people can ask: what makes you human?
