Racism will be dead when there are no more "race" boxes to check!

These students are far wiser than the adults who pass the laws that force us into defining ourselves with biased lables.

Refuse to answer this question on your census questionaire as well.

I think that its both invalid and valid because one being race should not be of importance, yet some universities hold that issue accountanble because its a better way for them to recruit more incoming students of a minority ethnicity!

I believe that if you don't want to answer the ? you don't have to. I think it shouldn't matter what race you are.

is all this really necessary, educators and those in positions of authority need to give the students some breathing room. What ever happened to a free country. it seems that there is always something going on.

it is funny how the students chose to not place themselves by
a race. I personally do not care about puttin my skin color or race above any other one because it is a lot
easier just to jus act like equals, and everyone gets along. For people
like that, i think this could seem as a BIG issue big. but to me this
seems kind of odd to think about, and to pointless to cause such
an commotion about it. Who really cares
