I know this has been talked about MANY MANY times in the past, but I have always been asked this question (by strangers who don't even know me, mind you, cashiers at the checkout line, etc), "What race are you?", "What is your nationality?" and "Where do you come from?" I state, "California" as an answer to the second question, and they snap back with, "No, where do you REALLY come from?"...I snap back with, "Is that any of your business? Just scan my items, I'll swipe my card, and leave", Then I overhear them talk to the next customer in line complaining about how rude I was being. When a form asks for race, I fill in, "None of your business", whether it fits in the box, or not. If they give me any scrutiny, I will state, "Do you want a better America?" and that USUALLY shuts them up. I don't speak with any accent whatsoever, and for those who do, should ONLY have to worry about Siri not being able to understand them while legally staying in our country. I vote, I have an American flag on the front of my garage door, I celebrate the 4th, I am very active in politics, and have made some notable changes in city government (PM me if you REALLY care about the proof), including petitioning for bus route extensions etc in my city. In fact, I would say I am more active in government than your average "American." Most people probably have NEVER been to a city hall meeting in their life. If you look on your US passport, it states for every resident who lives here, "Nationality: United States of America" with no way of changing it, (All the other letters are typed out, but Nationality is printed in a way where you can tell it is the same for all). So why can't we all just be American? Since when did being American come to mean being White? Part of the problem, would be that when OTHERS are asked of their race, they respond correctly. If only there was a way to get others to just respond, "American" and that is IT. Leave it at that. The race card will stop if the general public would LET it stop. Stop asking ******** questions, and consider us true Americans, and maybe minorities will stop pulling the race card. If we all can be UNITED, then we would prosper better as a country. Sadly, it seems lately other countries have passed us by and left us in the dust in progress.
