The Oklahoma State Department of Education is implementing the United States Department of Education race and ethnicity data reporting standards for public school students and staff beginning this school year. In order to meet this guideline, students of Hispanic/Latino culture or origin must select the applicable race. Please choose one or more of the following races that apply.

a. American Indian or Alaskan Native
b. Asian
c. Black / African American
d. Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
e. White

How is it racist? It's sure racial, but I don't think it belittles anyone.

My school had the same thing. Its new thing I assume and it blew up my mom when I took it to get it signed and then she went ranting on how the "americans" are being really racial to hispanics.

Until your school declares one race less intelligent than another and subsequently segregates them because of it (I may have slightly embellished that somewhat, but such a thing did actually happen at my school), count yourself lucky.

Lol no Muslims or Jews are at your school.

This is a pretty awesome idea.

On my Census form I did that, only instead of "human" I wrote "American."

The point of this is to investigate whether racism is present in the school. However, I think the way the educational system treats non whites is disgusting and I support making a new box for human.
i don't know why i feel so dry

Yeah, but public ombudsmen get really annoyed with you when they check up on you when you put that down when you start a new job. My boss thought it was hilarious, which was a shame.

I strongly dislike when people overreact to things like this. It's not racist. It's not racist for me to notice someone's Asian or African American or Hispanic or anything. It's not racist to bring it up. It's racist to insult them over it or belittle them. Neither of which this letter is doing.

Technically, Hispanic refers to people who speak Spanish, so it has nothing to do with race. Latino, does however.

^This. Racism is not in being a different color, or noticing that a person is a different color, but believing a person is different and should be treated differently because they are a different color.

Technically Hispanic refers to a person who hails from Hispania. Which was the Roman name for the Iberian Peninsula. AKA Spain and Portugal

What strikes me as odd is the fact that there is no box for 'Other'.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

That is incorrect. Hispanic refers to people with lineage to Spain and Portugal. Latino are those from latin American countries.

I respectfully disagree;however, it also can be used to reference people with origins in Spanish–speaking countries.
