    My ridiculous town is set to receive a government grant that al franken supposedly got for us, great buffoon that he is. Now the government wants to know what race and ethnicity I am, to make sure there is no discrimination against me......

    The vast majority of my town is white and Irish, Catholic.

    Racial Categories (check one):
    _American Indian or Alaskan Native
    _Asian
    _Black or African American
    _Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
    _White
    _Some Other Race
    _Two or More Races

    Ethnic Categories (check one):
    _Hispanic or Latino
    _Not Hispanic or Latino

    Ugh, it says I'm not required to fill this out and send it in, but that they will have to guess my choices based on visual observation or surname....:rolleyes:

    Yes, and I find it strange that the government wants to know these things in order to give the town money to fix some things.

    In my town, at Registry Office, they have a list of the inhabitants and there is written all about each one, race too. They have only to digit a question and the pc gives an answer........ That's really odd.

    The government is trying to protect themselves from looking like they are discriminating. I don't know of any Hispanic or Latino citizens here, and there are two families that are African American. There, I completed the town profile.....

    Here is a nice "melting pot"... a little NY. At job we are waitning for the last data about immigration in town, I'll write you about. The only troubles at the moment are with the muslims, who want have a mosque in the center of the town and don't want "the cross" on the school walls.

    Oh dear. I am lucky I live in an area where no one is offended by the Catholic school and all the crosses on the walls.
     
  8. I'd write in "Romulan" and send it back.

    More of "Big Brother is Watching YOU!!!!!" in action..... :(

    I would write "homosapien" and leave it at that. :) :D

    In case you are wondering, this is what the American Heritage Science dictionary says:

    "The modern species of humans. Archaic forms of Homo sapiens probably evolved around 300,000 years ago or earlier in Africa, and anatomically modern fossils are known from about 100,000 years ago. All humans now living belong to the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens. The closest living relative of Homo sapiens is the chimpanzee."

    I'd watch out for those Irish Catholics. They are trouble. Especially if they have red hair. Good Idea to know where they all are. :D

    I was thinking, "Check 'other race', and write in 'human' ". Or, you could write NOYFB. I've put that on a form or two, in my lifetime.

    Ha! NOYFB....

    Yep, I'm not an Irish Catholic, but they seem to have accepted me as one of their own....even though I can frequently be seen toting firearms to my car. :D

    Oh, there are no names on these forms, so for the life of me I can't figure out how they will decide who has not filled one out......

    There are numerous laws on the books apportioning tax dollars to many specific purposes. Among these are appropriations to various racial and cultural programs etc. Therefor they think they need to know, amongst other things what your race or what ever is.

    So much for equal protection under the law. Our misleaders have corrupted that to.

    Human, I might have to start using that. Thanks Alpo.
