    The Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Directive 15, designates racial and ethnic categories used in the US Census and in other innumerable public and private research projects. According to a statement released by the American Anthropological Association (AAA), the US Government should phase out use of the term "race" in the collection of Federal data because the concept has no scientific justification in human biology.



    According to the AAA, "race is no longer a relevant term. Like any other American with African Ancestry, I am obsessed with skin color. Americans have been distinguished by color, classified by color, and separated by color piloting a national Color Assault Psychosis in the subconscious of mostly Americans who have been classified as Black. Presently, there is a phenomenal remodeling by Euro-American anthropologists to genetically bombard Negroid DNA. Black and Brown people are being formulated as members of the Caucasian Race. The new term to use is "ethnic group." That way the "former colored" people of the world are not "White" but live as "ethnic groups."



    Have you ever heard of a person whose race is Puerto Rican or Cuban? That is their country of national origin--not their race. Over 80% of Cubans are Black/Negro, have African Ancestry (have Negroid DNA) but are classified as White or Hispanic in the US. The same thing goes on in Mexico where 55% of its residents have African Ancestry. This appropriates another bona fide superiority fallacy. People in the US with African Ancestry who want to be classified as multiracial can hardly wait to jump ABOARD the Caucasian Bandwagon. Disappearance of the White recessive gene is a reality unless scientists can scurry to reclassify and catalogue the dominant Black gene pool and expand recessive White Race numbers. If you want to find out more about DNA studies take note.



    Note: When I write about the 8 percenters, it refers to the disappearance of the European (Scandinavian/Nordic) White Race. You can do a quick examination for yourself. Go to the Population Reference Bureau Website for 2001 and add the figures together. If you take the numbers given for Europe and North America and divide by the numbers given for Africa, Asia, South America and Oceania you can calculate the percentages. At the present time, Whites amount to about 20 percent. By 2050 the percentages will be between 5 - 8%. It is estimated that by 2050 Europe's population will decline not increase. All of the following countries show a minus (-) not a plus (+): Italy, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, Ukraine, Russia, Slovakia, Romania, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Germany and Belgium. Biological Homogeneity is presenting a quandary for anthropologists who Doubletalk—re-establishing race and racial groups. One thing to think about is that a lot of countries with a minus (-) in front of the population growth category is a large group of these countries already have people who are of color and classified as "Muslims" with brown skin.

    hartwell,

    Great find brother hartwell, I guess we will stop bickering now about the Out of Africa Theory and begin to contribute to what's taking shape with human classification, since Race is no longer relevant nor ever was.

    We had no part to play in the earlier racial classification system, but that is not the case now. We must place our input on the table and be heard. It is not our fault that the so-called white gene is disappearing as they say:

    Disappearance of the White recessive gene is a reality unless scientists can scurry to reclassify and catalogue the dominant Black gene pool and expand recessive White Race numbers. If you want to find out more about DNA studies take note.

    The New Caucasian Race...Not this time


    The AAA is the largest and most influential organization providing input on the race/ethnic issues:



    Its RECOMMENDATIONS


    1. The American Anthropological Association supports the OMB Directive 15 proposal to allow respondents to identify "more than one" category of "race/ethnicity" as a means of reporting diverse ancestry. The Association agrees with the Interagency Committee's finding that a multiple reporting method is preferable to adoption of a "multiracial" category. This allows for the reflection of heterogeneity and growing interrelatedness of the American population.

    2. The American Anthropological Association recommends that OMB Directive 15 combine the "race" and "ethnicity" categories into one question to appear as "race/ethnicity" until the planning for the 2010 Census begins. The Association suggests additional research on how a question about race/ethnicity would best be posed.

    As recommended by the Interagency Committee, the proposed revision to OMB Directive 15 would separate "race" and "ethnicity." However, the inability of OMB or the Interagency Committee to define these terms as distinct categories and the research findings that many respondents conceptualize "race" and "ethnicity" as one in the same underscores the need to consolidate these terms into one category, using a term that is more meaningful to the American people.

    3. The American Anthropological Association recommends that further research be conducted to determine the term that best delimits human variability, reflected in the standard "race/ethnicity," as conceptualized by the American people. Research indicates that the term "ethnic group"is better understood by individuals as a concept related to ancestry or origin sought by OMB Directive 15 than either "race" or "ethnicity." While people seldom know their complete ancestry with any certainty, they more often know what ethnic group or groups with which to identify. It is part of their socialization and daily identity. Additionally, there are fewer negative connotations associated with the term "ethnic group."

    4. The proposed revision to OMB Directive 15 advocates using the following categories to designate "race" or "ethnicity": "American Indian or Alaskan Native," "Asian or Pacific Islander," "Black or African-American," "White," "Hispanic origin," "Not of Hispanic origin." Part of the rationale for maintaining these terms is to preserve the continuity of federal data collection.

    However, the "race" and "ethnicity" categories have changed significantly over time to reflect changes in the American population. Since 1900, 26 different racial terms have been used to identify populations in the US Census. Preserving outdated terms for the sake of questionable continuity is a disservice to the nation and the American people.

    The American Anthropological Association recommends further research, building on the ongoing research activities of the US Bureau of the Census, on the terms identified as the population delimiters, or categories, associated with "race/ethnicity" in OMB Directive 15 in order to determine terms that better reflect the changing nature and perceptions of the American people. For example, the term "Latino" is preferred by some populations who view "Hispanic" as European in origin and offensive because it does not acknowledge the unique history of populations in the Americas. OMB may want to consider using the term "Hispanic or Latino" to allay these concerns.

    5. The American Anthropological Association recommends the elimination of the term "race" from OMB Directive 15 during the planning for the 2010 Census. During the past 50 years, "race" has been scientifically proven to not be a real, natural phenomenon. More specific, social categories such as "ethnicity" or "ethnic group" are more salient for scientific purposes and have fewer of the negative, racist connotations for which the concept of race was developed.

    Yet the concept of race has become thoroughly--and perniciously--woven into the cultural and political fabric of the United States. It has become an essential element of both individual identity and government policy. Because so much harm has been based on "racial" distinctions over the years, correctives for such harm must also acknowledge the impact of "racial" consciousness among the U.S. populace, regardless of the fact that "race" has no scientific justification in human biology. Eventually, however, these classifications must be transcended and replaced by more non-racist and accurate ways of representing the diversity of the U.S. population.

    This is the dilemma and opportunity of the moment. It is important to recognize the categories to which individuals have been assigned historically in order to be vigilant about the elimination of discrimination. Yet ultimately, the effective elimination of discrimination will require an end to such categorization, and a transition toward social and cultural categories that will prove more scientifically useful and personally resonant for the public than are categories of "race." Redress of the past and transition for the future can be simultaneously effected.

    The American Anthropological Association recognizes that elimination of the term "race" in government parlance will take time to accomplish. However, the combination of the terms "race/ethnicity" in OMB Directive 15 and the Census 2000 will assist in this effort, serving as a "bridge" to the elimination of the term "race" by the Census 2010.

    Who are these people trying to fool? Pat Buchanan, in his book "The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization (2002) ISBN 0-312-28548-5", has been sounding the alarm about his race's declining numbers.

    Most natural life on this planet flourishes when provided the right environment. They have fertility drugs, in-vitro fertilization and maybe cloning and still can't keep their numbers up.

    There is another thread here called "Is Race a Scientific or Social Construct?",
    what is being proposed here is a social construct.

    Getting rid of the word or the classification, will do exactly what?

    If it doesn't change attitudes, then nothing is accomplished.

    Well, I have pored over this information and cannot find anything stated here that is not well reasoned. Now, if it is a subterfuge, I'm missing it. But not discounting it whatsoever. Clearly, whites are on the decline and they know it. Surely they are doing something about it. But we need a compelling case and not just accusations, and then we need to show how it applies to the recommendations of the AAA, and then we need a plan of action to expose it. Like bringing it up with the congressional black caucus, etc.

    It would be great if someone could connect the dots.
