  •  I wonder where they get their "Race" numbers (0+ / 0-)

    Every time I encounter a form that inquires about my "Race" I always check off the box for "other" and enter "human" in the write-in space.  ("Ethnicity" is a different matter, one to which I am happy to offer a more conventional answer.)

    Racism won't even approach being over until it becomes accepted fact that the entire concept of "race" is an invalid construct invented in order to create organized and separate categories of human beings under the banner of "science" when in fact, there are none.  

    The term "Race" as it applies to groups of human beings should be viewed as an archaic term of sinister or at least ignorant origins.  It has never deserved serious consideration in any discussion.  The fact that the term persists is a sign of endless irritation for me personally.
