I've been thinking about identifying as "non-binary" since it requires nothing of me, can mean whatever I choose it to mean, and affords me a special status among my colleagues in the world of public education. Alas, I have too much integrity to go through with it.

Reaffirms my belief that we are better off when government leaves us alone.

I have for a long time thought and genuinely believe in fairness but do not trust the proposition of affirmative action to deliver any beneficial outcome,call me cynical I but those people behind the narrative were fully aware of the outcome’s but want to create corruption and discrimination and will try to cancel anyone that doesn’t agree with the narrative. Thank you Thomas for your work brings perspective through facts.

I belong to a Minority that is so discriminated against that we aren't even recognized as a Minority. We are readily discernable. There is a significant body of mythology surrounding this Minority. We are singled out, often assign to crap duties due explicitly for our ethnicity. We have our own racial slur. In fact, our racial slur is the same as another common racial slur that is verboten to say if you swap the first and 3rd letters. How can that be?
I am a Redhead. Anyone who thinks we are just White people has never dated one.

LOL "quotas within quotas" "original backwards"

A competition who is more backward sounds like a true socialist activity.

Regarding his data for the growth of the Native American population I can think of 2 other things that could cause a change in those numbers. Firstly, legal immigration. There are many people from Canada and Central and South America that could legitamately claim Native American ethnicity and IF immigration of such happened in enough volume over the 20 years considered that could account for that increase.

Secondly, individuals who previously weren't counted at all. For example, prior illegal immigrants who eventually achieved legal status or residents of reservations that had been particularly bad at census taking but improved during that time period, may suddenly show up as he described. Some combination of these is probably the reality but I would be interested to know which are the most responsible.
