My SO and I are watching CNN's Who is Black in America. It brought up a discussion between us, and I told him when I was completing forms for our son, the ethnicity portion stated pick one box: African American, Caucasian, Asian, Native American. There was no "other" option, and you could not check more than one box. I checked African American. When I questioned the receptionist, she said we know, the forms need to be updated.
Why do people need to be identified in today's world according to race? It bothers me that my son will encounter nonacceptance by some because of his skin color, hell he already has.
Thoughts? Here's a link to the episode:
