Re: Trying to Find the Multi-Racial Box ??
- View SourceI thought the education department was now
required to say 'check all that apply?'
Not that they follow it, but if they want
to get picky,say you're following the law.
I have definitely seen an increase over the years, and
if it does say check one, I ignore it and check all.
Actually, when I was younger, someone did a survey of some after
school group I was with that had races listed and then a blank
to fill in the number of people in the group that fit each race.
We had nine people there but it added up to ten.
I have no idea why...

Yes, happily I too have noticed that more forms these days
have a check all that apply option or a multiracial
category, but there are still many that do not, and
many institutions which require us to "pick one."
I find this ridiculous since so many Americans are
multiracial/multicultural; however, society has
yet to fully wrap its brain around this fact.
