This is the craziest thing about dude's argument that people miss. Out of one side of his mouth he complains people refuse to let him identify with his ethnicity instead of the race he is clearly part; then he flippantly tells black folk who are not African American that their ethnicity doesn't mean **** out of the next side of their mouth.The Crux if the argument Here is that black = African America in all contexts which isn’t true. The census is concerned with you originate from, whether someone is black or not is a matter of WHO you originate from. I’m “African American” on the census because that’s how the census groups people black People. I’m Latino because Haiti is part of Latin America. I’m black because my ancestors are in large part of African decent.
White House wants to add new racial category for Middle Eastern peopleIn a previous thread/ argument ninjahood identifes people of middle eastern decent as a Arab or Muslim as a race
Quite ironic actually.yup. i always warn people. sneakers bout the only thing that unites this place. even racists like Nike
What’s that got to do with where I originate from though? I’m still black and Latino right but according to you the census overrides where I my familiar actually comes from? Or can you only be Latino if you’re not black regardless of being from Latin America? Are you Latino because the census told you you are or because of where you come from?which is constitutional, there's nothing else to talk about...Quartz video i posted is self explanatory.
On the census and the American Community Survey you are allowed to identity your race as black and your identify yourself as a latino.In the language of the census it is.
In real life I’m both black and from Latin America. Literally on the other side of Hispaniola.
