I think we do this here in Brazil as well. It’s a little weird and there are a few cases of white people abusing it to get in good colleges, but those are outliers. Overall, it doesnt affect much...

I'm pretty sure we do it everywhere... Whenever I've filled out my ethnicity on a form, I've never ever been forced to take a DNA test.

I'm sweet grapes.



I mean, who cares? That's no information anyone should be starting anything with in the first place, if the terms lose credibility/significance, all the better.



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

'Race', just like any form of subdivision of living creatures, is a human construction. There's a scientific consensus that all humans that aren't extinct belong to the same species and the same race.

Not this fallacy again ... 

Just because it's a human construct doesn't mean it's not real like gravity or evolution and there is no scientific consensus that there is only one race like I showed above in my link ... (doctors/pharmacists certainly don't agree with that consensus at this point since there's a blatant drug which is race specific)

OK, let me ask you then. Do you consider some human races inferior to others?

Lol that’s true. What i mean to say is that it’s probably not going to change anything in any major way, so no need to freak out against ‘SJWs’

Just PM me since my ban hammer senses are tingling ... (I'm out from participating any further in this thread)

Of course there's no need... but "we will continue identifying race pretty much the same way we always have" is not nearly as interesting as "OMG THE SJWS WANT TO LET EVERYONE IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS PANDAS!"



Legitimately curious to those who think this is crazy... how is this different than how you would record race if you were in charge for collecting that data in a school?



So, is it possible to be defined as something other than the human race? I don´t understand it really.
