This certainly rings true to me! My birth certificate states I'm from the White Race and my ethnicity is Puerto Rican. I only identify with being Puerto Rican, but what's confusing is that being Puerto Rican is my ethnicity. Now,I have to check off a race on Govt forms, etc. and there's only two races...wht & blk; I suppose I have to belong to one. Yet, I identify with my African & European (French) ancestry more than even being American or white. One thing I do know is that society doesn't see the blackness, whiteness or Europeaness in me, so can I just be Puerto Rican....it's who I am and who I want to be. For the record, I'm just speaking about myself, for myself.
