Why are people still paying attention what someone's ethinic background is?
I can't believe that people are so racist and make race to be such a big deal.
Governments and corporations are trying to "do the right Thing" but sometimes their good intentions are flawed
Sounds racist to me like when I come in with a white relative people assume that we are separate if you are brown you can't be white but you can pass to be anything else. People dont really know what you are they just guess by looking at you. Especially if you look racially anonymous. But can't be white because you are kind of on the darker side of white.
You are right that it is racist. By definition it is specifically geared towards helping someone based upon their race, but they overlook that because they believe that they are helping
They are not helping nobody but making a particular race of people look bad. Especially if you are black they always want to make blacks look bad like they can't help themselves.
I don't disagree. People should have equal opportunity to achieve but today people are demanding equal results and if the results aren't equal they are saying that is proof of systemic racism.How does that explain Asians out performing Whites?
I'm asking why they ask if they are already going to assume what you are by looking at you a biracial person might check white but they look more black and white people are really biased who claims white.
When in doubt claim the minority. Some of those have a prefer not to say option it's just on a weird part of the form.They used to have a two or more races option. They ask for demographic purposes. Like the unemployment rate or how many of each race and age range has which kind of job.
My question is why they still categorize people based on their ethnic background smh they do stuff like that because they are racist.
Sort of. It IS important. If no black people had jobs or worked without pay, but every other race was paid at their expense, that would be major evidence of an addressable issue. Looking at racial data and pay rates for each job helps this too.

100% correct! Blame the wingnuts that think every company is supposed to be racially balanced by employees (regardless if said employees have the knowledge to do the job). That way, no one can say they're "racist".
@Goforit1010 What the hell is wrong with you? It's been in place for 30+ years and it's to make sure people have equal opportunity. It doesn't require you have a racial balance if you have a good reason why that was not possible and it certainly doesn't require you to hire anyone who's not qualified EVER. If there is a very small number of a particular race with a specific set of skills in your geographic area then it will be understandable if you do not have a racial balance in those areas, but it makes sure everyone gets a fair chance. What kind of piece of shit would think making sure everyone has a fair chance is the product of wingnuts? Take your ignorant stupid shit someplace else.
Ignorance? Hardly. I've seen it happen in many instances where minorities were hired over well experienced whites, SPECIFICALLY to meet some stupid Gov't idea of racial balance. I have absolutely zero problems hiring ANYONE who meets the job qualifications, regardless of their race and so on. But ever since Title 9, came out and other anti-discriminatory laws, "reverse discrimination" has been an issue. And yeah, I know this problem has been around for decades. It started in the 70's, and has had its problems ever since.
Nobody wants to be black you usually looked down upon I think you are just trying to be funny
I don't have to try to be funny , that comes natural. All companies are looking for black people for jobs. That is the truth. Don't believe the media , REV Sharpton. They need you to believe it , so they get paid.
Bullshit. Tell that to the sun, it seems to burn one of those groups WAY more. It also gives them more skin cancer.
I dont even know why race is still a factor in people's lives I'm just saying you dont realize how frustrating that is when you tell someone what you are and they think that you were something else they usually do not want to believe sometimes if you are mix race when they want you to select one. People do stuff because their racist.
It is really none of their business if it isn't such a big deal.
