NWR-Black/African American, Mexican Hispanic
We were having a discussion at work and we were talking about the above topic. My heritage is French,Mexican, Spaniard which I guess would be covered under Hispanic, somewhat. But not all people of color (black) are African so the blanket African American does not cover. I have always objected to this title. I am not asking this to create a problem but to clear this up for myself. I have friends from Jamaica that would not be African American so it would be wrong to refer to them as such. Would the designation Black American be better. I really think - just American is much better but...we were talking about school registration forms and the forms have an area that ask for this information. When we were filing papers for this house that we live in, the question was on the form as to and I put - Made In USA and they ask me to check one of the boxes and I would not change it and I refused to let them change it.
