Glazer, Nathan
Public Interest, n149 p21-31 Fall 2002
Objects to the detailed classification of race on the U.S. Census, explaining that these questions are irrational, sending a message that the government considers race and ethnicity more important than anything else. Suggests that the Census is attempting to impose a fixed categorization on identities in flux. Recommends how to change the Census questions to be more appropriate. (SM)
