AA question
« on: April 22, 2005, 12:53:20 AM »
This may sound like a stupid question:  But here goes. I am an arab american, and am not sure whether I should identify myself on the LSAC website as a minority under the "Other" category. I do not fall into place in any other of the minority categories.  I don't consider myself a white caucasian, but I am remember hearing once that we are legally included in this catgegory.  Any help to answering this quesiton would be appreciated it, I don't want to mislead LSAC, but I can't find an answer to this question anywhere. thanks in advance.

As far as I know "other" is a self-defined category.
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

No, you don't mark the 'Other' category.  Actually right underneath that one, there should be a bubble for 'Terrorist.'  That is the one you fill in.

yeah, there should be aa for skinny white guys. Almost all the top positions in business and politics seem to be taken by chunky white guys. You guys are definitely underrepresented.

Arabs are part of the Mediterranean (sp?) race, which is NOT part of the races considered white. This race inculdes arabs, egyptians, greeks, spanish, and italian. So yes, I would say check the other box. I have done some research and this is what the race is, so you are NOT white. Heck, you probably dont even look white and get mistaken as Mex and the time, right? So if someone is picking people on skin-color as all the other AA benefactors are saying, you wouldn't get in either.
