    2010 Census


    The 2010 US Census included changes designed to more clearly distinguish Hispanic ethnicity as not being a race. That included adding the sentence: "For this census, Hispanic origins are not races."[15][16] Additionally, the Hispanic terms were modified from "Hispanic or Latino" to "Hispanic, Latino or Spanish origin".[15][16]


    Although used in the Census and the American Community Survey, "Some other race" is not an official race,[13] and the Bureau considered eliminating it prior to the 2000 Census.[17] As the 2010 census form did not contain the question titled "Ancestry" found in prior censuses, there were campaigns to get non-Hispanic West Indian Americans, Arab Americans and Iranian Americans to indicate their ethnic or national background through the race question, specifically the "Some other race" category.[18][19][20]

    If you say you don't like Obama because of his policies, and someone calls you a racist, that person is an idiot. Move on with your life.

    Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "Racism" and "racial discrimination" are often used to describe discrimination on an ethnic or cultural basis, independent of their somatic (i.e., "racial") differences. According to the United Nations conventions, there is no distinction between the term racial discrimination and ethnicity discrimination.[1]

    Go to a professional game and try starting a USA chant and then come report back to us.

    Are you reading the same thread I am? Last I checked this thread was about fans chanting USA and it being 'racist'.

    Perhaps they wanted all the Americans to chant USA. Instead their coach hushes them, and they get punished. It's a shame...
