"Some other race" and "Two or More Races" are government terms for Multiracial. Why is respectful terminology so hard to use by the government? Did you remember when "Asian" was "Oriental"? When "Black" was "Colored"? How about when "Alaskan" Native was "Alaska Native." Huh? That's right. The congressional representatives from Alaska asked the Office of Management and Budget to drop the "n," on Alaskan so they did. It would be just as easy to use respectful terminology to identify as multiracial. What do you think?
