Hmm, so a Greek person would check other and put Mediteranean? And someone would check other and put Nordic, what do you all think of this?
I am just playing with ideas, because I hate the WHITE race, what is that?! BLACK people say look, this is something black, NOT the color of MY skin, so NO one is White really. you know?

It's a book someoen wrote, adn these are the main ideas of each chapter, should have been specific what it comes from I guess.

i think the issue is not whether white races exist, but whether certain races are disproportionately represented in certain social stratospheres and if so then why.

the separation of people based on physical/cultural/religious/economic differences began long ago.  we are merely attempting to make modern sense out pre-existing variables. 

perhaps eliminating the race box on an application is the answer.  how will that action impact other facets of life?  at what different angle will the dominos fall?
