These kinds of questions on official forms perpetuate it being otherwise.
I was always wondering why the h*ck do we have these type of questions in the USA? Shouldn't we all be "colorblind"?

Yes, we should and maybe someday we will get there. I have little faith I will see but hold out hope my children will.

Does the UK have such questions? How about France?

Don't you think we would have been closer to that without those questions?

Don't you think all this talk about diversity mandates and quotas are making the vision of colorblindness ever further away?

Don't know but don't only a few states, have it? SC happens to be one of them.

OUCH!!! There is a PC Friday question if I ever seen one.
For statistical information. Now many claim that statistical information is used for voter suppression.
Which states have it on the form?  ;)
My understanding is that it is a federal requirement that they ask the question.

https://www.eac.gov/sites/default/files/eac_assets/1/6/Federal_Voter_Registration_ENG.pdf

Box 8 Race or Ethnic Group
A few States ask for your race or ethnic group, in order
to administer the Federal Voting Rights Act.
Feelings don't care about your facts

How can it be a federal requirement when only a few states that do it?

My guess is that it depends on Voting Rights Act monitoring.

Hah, I couldn't resist. As at least one forum member can testify, I have two names and go by both, yet people insist on calling me by my second name and mispronouncing it to boot.

RYBs on names:
There are two types of names the name you were given when born known as the shem arisah - and the name you are known by. The shem arisah has a halachic validity, as it is always your name, even if you stop using it. On this, Rav Moshe ruled that a name is only a halachic shem arisah if the parents always planned on using it. At this point, it is ones name even if they changed it later. In contrast, if parents intended to only use the name when it was first announced at the krias shem, but then never use it again, Rav Moshe rules it is not a name. So, if non-frum parents gave a person a Hebrew name to make their frum grandparents happy, but never planned to use it, the name has no halachic validity. Despite this, if one ever used the name for a mi sheberach or Aliyah, we can rely on that and assume it is indeed a valid name. There must still be some intention that it be used lechatchilah, one should call the child by that name at least once in a while.
What happens if the name is changed? It used to be very common that preschool teachers changed names if they didnt like them. The family would give the name Elka, but the teacher didnt like it so she changed it to Ilana and it stuck. What is this girls true name? Indeed, this problem was so common in England that R Yechezkel Abramsky ruled that a get should have only the name in common use, and not the shem arisah because it was impossible to determine what the original shem arisah was. (In truth, a shem arisah when real is never bottul. However, in this case, he said that it was impossible to determine what the real shem arisah was.)
In general, Rav Yaakov Kemenetsky said that it is not so good to give more than one name, as it can lead to problems when only one is used, and the other is forgotten.

For the rest, wait for the book.  ;)

You ask what his policies are? Well here is one.  :)
I will shut down the federal department of education. It has no reason to exist.

Just took a quick stroll down his Twitter feed. Definitely has some radical ideas, but he seems smart, unlike some other MAGA people. Seems more like a Lee Zeldin MAGA type.

Nothing wrong with radical ideas. The problem is just throwing red meat out there does not solve anything.
You are going to get rid of the DOE. How are you going to solve the education problem?

If you believe in local education run by the states, then there's technically not much of a need for a federal DOE.

Then there is no need for a state board of education either. Let's just keep going.

Yes, Reduce Government interference in Private and local Schools.
You can have a department in charge of Public Schools

Lets take this to the end. No need for any department. That is what the right-wing nutcases want. They want to drain every dollar from public education.
