Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was puzzled to discover that, when you apply for a position in an American organisation, you are asked to identify your race. Here is the list, picked up from a recruitment page of an organisation:
  • None selected
  • White (Not Hispanic or Latino)
  • Hispanic or Latino
  • Black or African-American (Not Hispanic or Latino)
  • American Indian or Alaska Native (Not Hispanic or Latino)
  • Asian (Not Hispanic or Latino)
  • Two or More Races (Not Hispanic or Latino)
  • Native Hawaian or Other Pacific Islanders (Not Hispanic or Latino)
  • Choose not to disclose
