Soompi takes on race!

 I came across a discussion thread in the Soompi Forums with this topic title: What Race Box Do You Check On Surveys/Forms? I thought it would be pretty cool to see what Soompiers' responses to this topic are..so I'll use this entry to post some of the replies..

I usually check asian/pacific islander because thats what non-asians usually identity me as. For my college apps and stuff I checked white though because I heard asians get shafted on that kind of thing. I guess I could check other... but that makes me feel like an alien or something. I'm half korean and half irish.

Two or more ethnicities. I get so pissed when they don't have that, and make you choose one ethnicity.  I'm half filipino / half black

tatsuri
Black/African American, depending on which is on the form. For mixed ppl, if they have 1 drop of black blood in them, they have to check black. I don't get it.

Tatsuri! So, if you are Korean/Asian and Black, you are Black right? All mixed races are considered biracial, what is so difficult for you to understand.

lol I check off White first cause thats my dominant culture and then Asian if theres another box

Amethist
I always check 'other' because is I check asian it would not be fair towards my white side, and vice versa.. And I'm eurasian too btw

XDBSKLUVRX
since im mixed (black, native american, hawaiian, korean) i have to check the 'other' box, but the teachers tell me to put in black since aparently i have tan skin..

Very interesting indeed! Maybe I will bring up some of these in class..
