Race and Ethnicity

Filling in a banking form, I was asked about ethnicity. I had to options to choose from:
  • Hispanic or Latino
  • Not Hispanic or Latino
Would MLK consider it a victory?

Wonderful irony, Ranfuchs. America is such a strange place when it comes to this subject, a land where if one parent is black and the other white, one is considered black. But if one is part Asian and part white, one is considered Eurasian. Eh? (Seen scratching my head and looking puzzled.)

George, isn't irony the only true way to understand our life?
