I can't even agree with these stuff since there are a lot of white asians, black hispanics, and tons of combinations, maybe it is more obvious for me since I live in mexico and we had a lot of mixes between indians and europeans, but the truth is that you can't put real limitations to each kind of people
I like it when they ask for your nationality and religion rather than your ethnicity > _ <" Ethnicity is just a racial thing I never like... But asking for someone's religion and nationality takes consideration of the holidays they celebrate and what they're restricted to because of their religion. Ethnicity has nothing to do with what they do and how they think so yeah > _ <" Thank you for this~!
It's either about the usual discrimation or the "positive" affirmative action to appear less racist as a company. Both of these are instances of being racist. Less racist but even more pointless is because some people are proud of their race or simply thing it's a part of a person's identity. And yes, as MaxReviver said, it's also about average education and because of racism outside of the company. "Black" people are still treated differently. It's something to think about (affirmative action etc.) Where I live, they don't ask about "race". They ask about ethnic heritage. It's better, because there are instances where different ethnic background have different (different, not worse or better) ways of thinking and acting.
I like this image. The real world is complicated and this image doesn't really capture that. I still like it, because it summarizes my opinion.
I'm glad you like it! I agree, if you come from a different country, you probably have different customs from others and it would be nice for people to know about your background. But in America most people are the same, they all have American customs, and they all have a race attached to them. It makes absolutely no sense to me, also you're right by trying to be nice to a certain race they are still being racist! I feel like equality is a tough concept to grasp for some people but I think the world is smartening up and in the future it won't matter if you're black or white, or if you're male or female, or whatever the "differences" we have.
As far as forms in general go, especially job applications, I'm not too sure for the reasoning, and it would feel as if they might discrimiate with that information. But I have heard that there are some very practical reasons to recording race information for school testing, and not just to see if one race is smarter than the other, because that doesn't really make sense. We are all indeed human, and all generally have the same knowledge capacity as everyone else. Perhaps to see if there are huge gaps or differences between races in test scores, so that they can see that maybe the level of education isn't being given to certain people, and that way educators can send better teachers and faculty to areas with concentrated amounts of that certain race.
Anyways, overthinking aside, I really do like this image. :] It gives a great sense of unity and togetherness about humans as a whole and I think we tend to forget that at times. Thank you. :]
Yes, especially job applications! I remember when I was really young my parents were filling out an application for school for me, and I was like "What's a caucasian?" Haha, ever since then I really don't get the whole point.. It makes sense what you say about school, but I feel like people should not be separate by imaginary barriers based on their skin color or if their eyes are slanted.. I feel like people would stop being so racist if so much attention wasn't given to the difference that doesn't actually exist because we are all the same. But thank you, I'm glad you like it!! <3
