When applying for a job or filling out a survey, why....??

When they ask what ethnic background you are, why do they have hispanic in a separate catagory then the other races? I am not asking out meaness, just out of curiosity.

  • because hispanic is not a race.... its is a made up ethnic category - which includes a wide range of countries
    You can be black and hispanic, white and hispanic, asian and hispanic etc.

  • I'm not sure. I like to pick "Other" just to screw with them.
