in terms of broadening definitions of race, gender, & other lifestyle options is leading to the corruption, even downfall of American society as they know it?

The U.S. Census Bureau was created in 1902. It puts names in front of the word American for immigrants. The gov. counts us by race. All major city has a "Chinatown" & "Little Italy". Westminster, CA. has an area in called Little Saigon.
What does that have to do with my comment? I didn't involve the govt, and those are areas are not a person.
Brad, What I am saying is our government breaks out these categories for different Americans on the Census reports they have us fill out. Have you ever filled one out? My point is it's not just the immigrants who put a name in front of American.
That is fine, and the govt is wrong for doing that, but the focus of my comment is still on the people, as they prefer to put American second. I refer to myself as an American. What do you refer yourself as .... American or American?
I refer to myself as an American.
However if there is an application or government form that specifies race/gender.... It would be interesting to see the government stop counting citizens by race in Census reports!They won't though.:)
So fellow American, is this what the government should be doing? Isn't this the government fostering discrimination? There will never be equality as long as the govt pigeon holes the people. Income taxes discriminate because of these pigeon holes.
