Community Village Activist: Unusual ‘Race’ check boxes

Via Scoop.itMixed American Life

I love that there is no check box for ‘White’ but instead European American, which acknowledges the foreignness of European Americans in the Americas. Although the check boxes are fairly comprehensive here, I’m disheartened to see there is no check box for Native American – on a form which was created on Native American land. This implies that Native Americans have been culturally erased. This is the written outcome from the cultural and physical genocide of Native Americans. Amerindians make up less than 1% of U.S. population (and within that almost half are of mixed ethnic heritage), but as First Nation Peoples they should NEVER be overlooked or forgotten.
