I’ve been asking this for years! Why so many boxes?

Why do I have to check any box?
If we live in a world where
we’re not supposed to judge,
why should anyone care about
identifying? The race question
in America is one that probably
never produces a satisfactory answer
for those who are asking the questions.”
— Mike Tirico

I have been asking this for years! Why do I have to check a box? Why am I forced to answer stupid questions? Why are so many obsessed with putting me into categories? Kudos to Mike Tirico.

To close this out, let me quote Joe Biden. “You ain’t black!” That happens to be a twisted talking point by the fools at The Root.
