I'm a German Dutch Native American American, AND PROUD OF IT

I'm okay with this.

Amongst my in-laws I have two black/white grandchildren. three Puerto Rices/white nieces/nephews, 1 Mexican/white nephew. Not really shocked by the news.
 
2013-05-13 11:12:35 AM
That's great. In only seven or eight more generations, we'll finally realize that the "race" block on a form is utterly meaningless.

What a stupid way to view the world.

How will we sort our porn in the future?

I refuse to acknowledge by multicultural dna. White people get all the breaks, so I am white...

Eventually humans will just be a grayish/brownish color.

OH NOES!!!!  How can we play identity politics then?

That's racist.

I have two Chinese nieces.  I think my sister was planning on just one, but when you adopt Chinese, an hour later you want to adopt again.

Suck it Repubs.

Guess I'm part of the problem. My ancestry is 95+% German/Prussian, and I went and married someone who's half Czech. Next thing you know, one of my kids will marry someone Irish, and my ancestral army will rise from their graves in rage.
 
2013-05-13 11:17:47 AM
I pass for human although I've never identified with the human race.
 
2013-05-13 11:18:01 AM
Being mixed with multiple ethnicities myself, I have no problem with this.
 
2013-05-13 11:18:26 AM
Idiocracy predicted this....among other things. Ow, my balls!
 
2013-05-13 11:18:35 AM
When will the government give up trying to classify people by their "race" (whatever that means)?
 
2013-05-13 11:18:46 AM
WHAT AM I???*runs off screaming*

1/4 Eastern Band of Cherokee, and damn proud of it. I bet the government wishes I wasn't though...anything native american really messes up their paperwork.

J. Frank Parnell: There is really just one race: the human one.


Lies.  A dalmation and a pitbull are both dogs, but significantly different.  Every 'race' of human is slightly different (on the whole) from the other in one way or another.

CSB - My best friend is 3/8 Chinese, 5/8 white.   His twin married a half-Phillipino, half-Mexican woman and had three kids, who are 5/16 white, 3/16 Chinese, 1/4 Mexican, and 1/4 Phillipino (which itself a mix of Spanish and Asian).  The oldest kid is about to marry a Sephardic Jew Colombian, so good luck tracking all that nonsense.

Of course, down here in Redneckistan, they are all colored.

Black= colored
Oriental= colored
Hispanic= colored
Arab= colored
Any child of any of these= colored

See how simple life can be?

Me too!  I think is probably the best thing to happen to this country in quite a while.

In the past the Census Dept. defaulted to the mother's heritage.  Obviously not a perfect solution.

No.  Not even Wewa still does that.

Show 'em to me. I'll tell you what each one is in like two seconds.
 
2013-05-13 11:23:15 AM
Well, the census is just going to require more forms.  We've got computers, you just fill in your ancestors race back eight generations, then we'll keep tracking your kids in perpetuity.

/Oh, and don't lie, we'll know and throw you in jail perjury.

And Border Collies are smarter than Dalmations.

If they want to keep track of this silliness, they'll probably have to replace the checklist with some kind of grid, race one one axis, percent on the other.

My wife gets particularly nasty at me over this issue. I am Asian and "White" ancestry. Whenever I check this or "mixed race" on the form, my wife is offended. She demands that I only check "White". She's been living in Tex-asshole for over a decade. I think the state rubbed off on her far more than she's willing to admit.
 
2013-05-13 11:27:52 AM
This has always confused me. By 'race' we mean skin color, right? Why not just say "skin color"? I self-identify as Light Peach.
 
2013-05-13 11:28:03 AM
I remember when Tiger Woods exploded on the golfing world and listening to a sports radio show talking about Tiger when one of the them said he thought Tiger Woods was "taking advantage" of his African American heritage.  His colleague asked him what he meant by that and the idiot would say was "I don't know.....I just think he's taking advantage of it."

To this day, I have no idea what the fark he meant.
