Race and Ethnicity are Meaningless Human Constructs
Stop trying to force everyone into predefined categories
Surveys like the Census that ask questions around race and ethnicity are inherently flawed because they predetermine the possible selections for deeply held personal ideas about identity.
Americans are having more difficulty filling in these fields for a plethora of reasons and are skipping these questions or entering confusing answers, yielding unhelpful supposition.
Only by allowing free rein responses to questions like these can we get useful data that can be analyzed and re-evaluated over time.
