I donít think Germans are superior to everyone else.

This kind of thinking created world war 2.

Except even before the US started keeping records on race people were still racists. Not checking a box on a government form doesn't magically make racism go away. In the US - it's a systemic problem.

I know but is it helpful or not? Or is there no difference?

Apia, Iíve often wondered the same when looking at South Africa with itís racial history... all their official forms want you to state your ethnicity. It felt so weird when I applied to study at university on distance there, but here in Namibia we donít have that and are far more chilled. We are not without issues, but there isnít that massive emphasis on race in everything.
Apia resurrected likes this.
