this has nothing to do with law school, but I was wondering, outside of law school admissions etc. What is a minority? Is it ONLY black, hispanic, american indian? Or, are others included like Arab, Asian, italian, Greek, Irish, etc? ANY others? I am just wondering for purposes of filling out a form for ,y job interview. Does anybody know?

here in america, if you are non-white you are a minority.

if you are non-WASP, you are also, in some circles, considered a minority.

Rather closed-minded. There are many circles where WASPs are the minority.

A. not to nit pick, but whatyoudreamof siad "in some circles" non-WASPs are minorities.

B. I highly doubt that an application asks "Are you a minority?"  Vinny is prolly just trying to spark another AA debate.

C. Greeks and Italians are considered white where I am from.

outside of the academic world, "under"represented minorities are much broader.

I am not trying to spark another AA debate, this is not the AA board, afterall.
I am just curious as to others opinions in the matter.

I think that it seems that black people think that any one with lighter skin than them is white.

Uh, no.  Put that you're Greek on the application if you really want to; it's up to whoever's doing the hiring to interpret it how they want.
Anyway, what have you been up to these few days?

Wow, I guess people did notice I've been gone. I cam back to school here. Auditioning for the Band of the Fighting Irish (ND marching band, for those that don't know, lol) on the trombone. I think it would be fun for senior year to be in it, since I been in the other bands before too.

I am putting Greek on all my apps, even since I found out I am I have been. Before that I thought I was Spanish, since I am adopted and my mom never cared to answer me when I asked.

Aww, I may disagree with you on certain issues, but I noticed you were gone because I missed your crazy ass!  :-*
Good luck on the band.

AWE!! Thanks!
It's good to know that even though people disagree with me that I am important (hehe) to the discussion.
I'm trying not to be so controversial anymore, I don't think that it helps matters any, but we all agree to disagree so that's cool.

What have you been up to ?

School started back Thursday; I have homework I'm supposed to be doing right now.  Hanging with my bf since he's back in town.
What kind of job was it?
