RACE & NATIONALITY


RACE & NATIONALITY


I’m totally confused about race and nationality.

I believe I read somewhere that there are only a total of three races; Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid, and we’re divided into nationalities. Is this true or are there more races than three?

I've noticed on some application forms where they ask you what race you are, they have one of the choices of OTHER. I know what OTHER means, but why must one choose the word OTHER? Why not some other word. I just don't like the word OTHER because it's like saying you're NOTHING!

If my Grandmother was Spanish, and Grandfather Mexican, my mother half Mexican and Spanish, my father Lebanese, and since I don’t consider myself White, Black or Asian, under which one of these three races would I fall?
