Race is a social construct. It's a stupid grouping of some ethnicity characteristics and some skin colours.

I think the Government should not be making decisions based upon Race. All this accomplishes is a continuing Racial divide and I believe is at the center of ALL Racial division in the United States. This practice of defining the people living in this country according to race must END.

I don't like the term "white" - that's a color, not a race. The "race" would be Caucasian. White includes so many different ethnicities, languages, and cultures. To lump them all into one category is to "white-wash" (forgive the pun) or erase the rich heritage of so many. For example, in the 1800's a lot of Irish immigrants were coming to America and some "white" people didn't want them classified as white because they were so different culturally. However, if white is Anglo-Saxon, then I would not be white I would be Celtic as my family is From Scotland and I am only 2nd Generation American.

You need to define ancestry by ancestry and culture by culture. Not this mix!

You know we get all of this fake talk about ‪‎racism‬ that doesn't exist like people that apply for jobs in sagging pants swearing like crazy expecting a job after. The fact is that all of us IGNORE REAL RACISM like federal documents such as birth certificates and census records. Question: How many of you fellow (White People) out there can honestly say that you are 100% pure Caucasian, mixed with nothing else? Not me. Most of us are mixtures of all kinds of things. Take for instance people that are 1/2 Mexican and 1/2 white whos birth certificates says White or people that are half black and half white and it says black. The fact is that in America ethnicity on federal documents such as census and birth records has long outlived its usefulness and become redundantly irrelevant. It is in fact a way for the government to target specific skin-tone if they so-wish. It is blatantly RACIST for the government to expect its people to pick (One Ethnicity) and Identify to it, when in fact most of its people are multi-racial. I think maybe it is time we lay off the fake racism and address the REAL SHIT.

Sorry my friend but that is an ignorant and possibly racist statement because you assume the only people discriminated against are wearing some type of clothing that deserves discrimination. I have noticed that at stores like Walmart where they ask to check your receipt, I never get asked but people of color do more often than "white" people. Even if the security person is black, he/she will still ask to see receipts from people of color yet they say "good-night" (or nothing at all) to me (at least that is so in my city/state). That is one SMALL example. But, what of all the young black males who were unarmed and yet killed by police officers for no justifiable reason.... not a matter of clothing, not a matter of any rational reason except for the color of their skin. You will never know what it is to be a minority and what they have gone through and what they still go through. Same crime, same circumstances a white person almost always gets a lighter fine or sentence than their black or Hispanic counterparts. Do you know any black people personally? Ask them!

i agree, i think its time for that classification to end, or become more specific. but probably end. I would just love to see America actually not ignorant to race classification
