From Caucasian to Mediterranean Designation

Postby jennabet » 05 May 2015, 20:11

The categories Caucasian and especially Anglo do not refer to me at all so I always chose "other" when filling out forms in the US. Therefore as a 100% Italian-American and because Italian-Americans are the third largest ethnic group in the USA, I'm in favor of the petition calling for a new category for myself called "Mediterranean" because that's really what I am. ... -caucasian
