So I'm running the unofficial UG Census polls, and would eventually like to do one on ethnicity. So, as I'm from whitey town, this is what *I* would probably put:

-white
-black
-brown
-Asian
-native American

Now, I'm thinking this is probably pretty ignorant. I'd like to put down the 10 ethnic groups that best define the majority of people. Little help?

EDIT: Seriously. Grab a driving licence form and check the ethnicity part.

Brown isn't an ethic group.

I think he meant Indian/Pakistani.

Yeah and put like Afro-American, Afro-Caribbean and stuff, I'm quite sure that's a lot more accurate or politically correct or something.
On questionnaires that I have to fill out one of the options is always "White - Irish" as well, but I've never been able to see the difference...

I think you should just do the major ethnic groups, don't pay too much attention to smaller ones as nobody will vote there.

I don't really see the point in stuff like "Afro-American" because all it seems to mean is black, if you started putting "Afro-American" what about Afro-English, Afro-Scottish, Afro-French, Afro-Dutch?

You might want to put a mixed option.
#16
Caucasian I remember is one of the definite ones. And I know for a fact that Chinese and Asian are kept seperate.

Chinese is seperate from Asian. I know that isn't technically true but it seems so on the passport forms.

This maybe just me, but doesn't "Brown" seem a bit racist? I mean really.


I don't think so. I mean, it's not offensive if you use it properly. To me, Brown implies someone from South Asia (also when people say Asian, I always think of South Asia). Black to me implies someone from Africa.

Charlize Theron anyone?

She's African, but I suppose your right. It just seems odd to call them brown when we know that they're either Indian, or whatever.
#28
Hm... I don't think "White" or "Black" would offend anyone. Every white guy I know would refer to themselves as a "white guy" anyways. Any black guys I know wouldn't care if they were called black either. Brown might be a bit of an issue, so perhaps I'll just leave it as Indian/Pakistani/etc.

Please note, that even were I to use a racist term here, it wouldn't be a racist meaning behind it, it would just be ignorance on my part.

So are you going to put up a poll?

True. Maybe they should be explained geographically in the poll, like:

Oriental (E. Asia)
Asian (S.E. Asia)

Wouldn't know, hence why I'm asking, haha.

As far as mixed race, I'll throw it in I suppose, but I'm just hoping that like... 75% of people wont pick mixed just because they are a little bit something else.

Wouldn't Arabic be separate from wherever it's being lumped in with?

Indian and Pakistani would probably just be Indian.


And would Scotland and Ireland just be considered Ireland?

It makes about as much sense.
