Will the United States ever be a place where the citizens are referred to as Americans like the citizens of Cuba are referred to primarily as Cubans Can the people of America ever erase race I think the United States would be a better place if racial labels were not placed on individuals Race is contemplated in our everyday lives Many things we do on a day-to-day basis involve us revealing our race or ethnic background One way we can possibly put an end to this labeling is by removing the question of race from all documents and forms An even greater way to remove race would be to instill in our children that we are all Americans no matter what shade of skin we encompass On any given day we are involved in something that requires us to disclose our race In the morning we check our mailbox only to see a survey from a well-known dishwashing detergent company One of the top ten questions is race That afternoon you go to apply for a loan at your local bank most of the time race is required on the initial application Other things you may do on a typical day that will request you state your race are apply for apartment rental register for a local softball team register a student for school or college apply for federal or government benefits such as grants or food stamps and apply for a job These are just a few situations where you may be asked to avow your race Although race may not be a determining factor on whether you get a job loan or selected for a sports team it is always a question that is posed One way that the United States could do away with race labels is by deleting the question on many of the federal forms and documents Voter registration Selective Service federal assistance and all employment forms
