I put AA/black all the time.

Why? Because sooner or later they're gonna find out, and if my race means that much that they would use discriminatory practices in selecting interviewees, they'll probably do the same after. Don't waste my time.

I always wondered about those "are you latino", "if not, what is your race" questions on job applications Confused
My theory is that companies favor "latinos" based on the stereotype of their work ethic and ability to get the job done for lower pay. Racist as hell, but hey, this is the goo 'ol US of A. Ermm
