I wonder why when racism is supposed to be banished, companies and government has to know what race you are. I do surveys. Everyone of them asks the same. What is your race. Some get very detailed. If Asian, Spanish or other, exactly where from..country. They also ask right off the bat if Hispanic or Spanish. And then exactly where from. Since surveys are done by corporate America, this indicates to me they are after certain markets to push to.
How is this country supposed to be non racist or sexist when companies search for races or sexes to push products to. What a joke. They want certain races, sexes, ages, income, family stats and others.
It shouldn't matter what race one is as far as a product goes. Sure, hair care may pertain to someone. But, for the most part, products should be advertised and sold to whomever chooses to purchase them.
As long as corporate America separates us by race, racism will be alive and well.
The other thing that gets me is sex orientation. Sorry, as far as I am concerned sex is determined by XX or XY. How you choose to live is your business, not theirs. M or F..period!very mad

Socialists hate profiling... it usually gives them what they don't want to hear.

Why polls and surveys are false. If your don't meet their criteria, they discard your input. Selective hearing shall we say? 100% agreed because we discarded the dissenters.

well, it's right that governments ask for race and it has nothing to do with racism.
It's so easy to call racism on everything you don't like.
In my country about 20% of the dutch young people will be in jail, in the Moroccan community it's 60%. They were born here or in Morocco. That doesn't matter. They don't accept our way of living. Even people with Turkish roots living here are seeing Erdogan as their president, no matter if they are born in the Netherlands and never visited Turkey.

So if they ask for your race they want to know what the risks are. There are muslimschools overhere that even teach them not to accept our way of living, boys can't play with girls, woman without a nicab etc. are whores.

And then I ain't even talking about terrorist attacks worldwide...

It's up to the muslims living here, accept our norms and standards, our way of living, your president is Mark Rutte, your King is Willem-Alexander, noone else.

People born here but who have a Moroccan mother even get a passport from Morocco, wtf. They can't even give it back. The same with Turkey, and I bet a lot of other Muslim-countries. It seems the muslimworld wants to take over the power in Europe.

And then you can't ask someone where he comes from? Orzzz, you're an idiot when you call this racism.

I think it's a valid question that has nothing to do with racism.

Racism is a social construct so the narrative is to say that race is a social construct. What you don't know can't hurt you.

But obviously if there's anythign riding on it then race becomes a real thing again whether that's pushing up markets or fighting the coronavirus.

Sorry, decide threat by race or nationality IS racism. One can not lump everyone together just because a segment of any group is radical. Race is used in the US to catalog who is likely to buy product. All a marketing ploy. It classifies people as to who is more gullible to their ads.
The issue of Muslims or any sect or belief needs to be controlled by the norms of the nation. No, you do NOT bring Sharia laws into the US or other countries with different constitutions. My dad was German and said I was American and should adhere to the beliefs and laws of it. Speak English. He went to night school to learn it. Became a citizen.
How is it different to hate Muslims and it is when in their land to call Americans the Great Satan? If you don't like the nations ways, then why the H do you want to live there. If your country is so great, stay in it.

Interesting observation thumbs up

Pros and cons. While there should be a slap on the wrist for companies who ask (marketing? job applicants?), governments can use it for all kinds of stuff.

Privacy rights are easily bypassed by these questions when people apply for necessary goods and services, but I am also amazed by the number of us who give our private information away. Why would a bank want to know our SIN number on a credit card application? Yet many sheep provide that information without question.

Wow, I’ve thought about these type of bean counters for a long time. I’ve concluded that government now fosters racism today under the guise of seeking equality. I think that racism will be greatly diminished in the usa once governments stop asking about race, gender, income etc. thumbs up handshake
