Arabs/Muslims don’t like being lumped in with infidel White people and would sooner cut their own throats than call themselves Black. No, they want their own special designation.
OK, then, how about “Wearers of Headrags who haven’t contributed anything of value to society in the last 100 years but prefer to wrap themselves in the seductive melodrama of eternal struggle and death?” Well, that’s a bit of a mouthful even for the bureaucratic Census goons, so how about this: “Adjacent Jew-Haters?”
Acording to a report in NPR, if you are Arab-American you might be left scratching your head because there is no special category for individuals of Arab or Middle Eastern decent, you must check white. And some Arab-American representatives think that is a problem. Abed Ayoub, legal advisor for the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is one of those who thinks that’s a problem.
