On the 2020 census form, you will be asked a question.

It will say "What is [your] race?"

What will your answer be, and why? That "why" is really the crux of my question.

(I know this is prime candidate for sarcastic posts, but I do want you to know that I am very interested in learning how people think about this question, so I hope I get some serious replies.)

Here were the choices last time, and I suppose they will be the same:


White
Black, African Am., or Negro
American Indian or Alaska Native — Print name of enrolled or principal tribe.
Asian Indian
Chinese
Filipino
Japanese
Korean
Vietnamese
Other Asian — Print race, for example, Hmong, Laotian, Thai, Pakistani, Cambodian, and so on.
Native Hawaiian
Guamanian or Chamorro
Samoan
Other Pacific Islander — Print race, for example, Fijian, Tongan, and so on.
Some other race — Print race.

(I am not going to thank every person like this, I just wanted to demonstrate that this is what I am looking for. I will give points to everyone with a serious reply. And if the reply is not serious, if I think it's funny.)

Because not everyone is clearly defined as "white" or "black."

Race is poorly defined and is more a social construct than a biological marker.

get to specifically put their country but if you somehow came from Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa then you are white?

a frand sent a survey that the city of greenville put out there last week, and in it was almost the same question


except it was worded as such:
"Which race do you identify with?"

they distinguish between Laotian and Cambodian but lump all Africans together and "white" could include people from at pretty much any continent.

It's what society says and different people have different ideas. That's why I said it was concerning that flow was so adamant about defining races. That's the wheelhouse of groups like white supremacists and black separatists. Not biology.


Good question.***
