First of all, despite the fact that most people in the US seems really confused about this (census questions, etc), race and ethnicity are two very different things. My race is caucasian, but I consider my ethnicity to be Southern American (note, not South American, but Southern US). While many people don't consider that an actual ethnicity, some researchers do. Southerners do have enough common traits that set us apart from others to meet the definition of an ethnic group.

As for the people listing their race as "human", you need a little biology lesson. [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human"]Human[/url] is (the colloquial term for) your species, and has nothing at all to do with your [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_(human_classification)"]race[/url].

Oh cripes, "race" is a social construct, don't you know.

I can't believe this. You're taking the liberty, aren't you?

Taking liberty with what? I'm using the dictionary definition of the words:

[url="http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/race?s=t"]Race[/url] -
[quote]

race ? ?[reys] Show IPA
noun
1. a group of persons related by common descent or heredity.
2. a population so related.
3. Anthropology .
a. any of the traditional divisions of humankind, the commonest being the caucasian, Mongoloid, and Negro, characterized by supposedly distinctive and universal physical characteristics: no longer in technical use.
b. an arbitrary classification of modern humans, sometimes, especially formerly, based on any or a combination of various physical characteristics, as skin color, facial form, or eye shape, and now frequently based on such genetic markers as blood groups.
c. a human population partially isolated reproductively from other populations, whose members share a greater degree of physical and genetic similarity with one another than with other humans.
4. a group of tribes or peoples forming an ethnic stock: the Slavic race.
5. any people united by common history, language, cultural traits, etc.: the Dutch race.

Well, considering that all persons are human, that would be rather redundant.

White and Indian (Native American Indian). There's probably an African somewhere back there, my grandmother had dark skin and jet black, curly kinky hair, but to look at me, I'm predominantly white. (English and Scottish)
