Do you think it would help or hurt your application (be it work or school)? I mean as a black person? Sure they put it as optional, reporting to the gov./non-discriminatory....but how true is the latter? I know some people would say they'd find out when they call you for an interview (not all schools do tho).
I always thought 2 things about it: 1) if you select black, it may be to your advantage if they need to meet a minority quota....someone told me this....and 2) they may turn you down because of your race.
I asked some people this and they say the same thing.
Do you think it would help or hurt you (esp. if it's a predom. non-black area)?
