To say a Creole is of the Black race is not malicious, it simply is the truth.

Race has no taxonomic significance. There are no subspecies of humans and we are all related to each other. Stop trying to make yourself feel superior by subjectively looking at adaptive characteristics and making generalizations about your relatives.

Some of your statement holds true but most is just bullshit subjective behavior. Yes we're all related but some tend to believe that black is a sub species. Thirty-three and a third to be exact. So it's more of a economic generalization than a cultural disorder. Either way, good post!

If what you say is true, then why do employment applications have you check which race you belong to and why is your race listed on your burth certificate?

Actually, some employers (esp govt) ask you to fill out a form that categorizes your ethnicity. You are not required to state what your ethnicity is and no one is (nor should there be) standing over an applicant to force them to check a certain box as opposed to another. Answering some or none of the questions is left up to the applicant.

It is left up to the person to identify their race if they choose to. In some cases, those who choose Native American as a racial identity may have to present proof of a tribal affiliation, however.
