Sorry if I offend. I was sitting in my Sociology class and I just started to think about all of this when we were talking about race.
What is "white?" I don't consider myself "white." My family was not a part of the people that came here and first called themselves "white." My family was forced into the lower class because they got here later then the "whites". They were forced to change their last name because the "whites" couldn't pronounce it. My people were killed off by the dirty "whites" that came and claimed this as their land and they were forced into slavery by the people south of the border. So then why am I forced to check the "Caucasian/White" box?
What is the actual definition of "white?"
