Most of the terms now are outdated and were only used as a way to not offend. I would think calling someone African-American is more racist than saying black but people don't seem to mind it.

I tried to take the opposite approach by playing it (really) safe and writing in "God-fearing, Sabbath-keeping, covenant-adhering, liberty-loving, and tyrant-hating" in race, but unfortunately all of that wouldn't fit in boxes, so I just ended up writing in "Uhmerikun".
