Racism is horribly rampant in the US and will continue to be so until the media, government, and statistical analyst groups stop defining and categorizing everything and everyone according to race. Why on earth do we need to specify race on any documents, especially on applications requesting qualification for government services? When people are always being separated by race they will always feel racially separated. Think about it!
