It’s just a bizarre thing for me to wrap my brain around.
I’m classified as a White American.
The government classifies me as White American so I’m White American, Non-Hispanic. Ok. It’s what the government wants, so the government gets.

But beyond the needs of Census takers and Marketers selling products based on personality types or something, why should I make it my _hobby_ too, instead of just a government obligation?
I mean, when I look at places people live, I find the demographics _interesting_, and percentages _do_ tell a tale of some kind, when combined with socioeconomic status, population density, weather, etc
