    What is your race?

    Wanted to get a feel for how well fencing is being promoted and integrated across the entire spectrum of our great country.

    Poll options are based on US Census, except for Hispanic/Latin which is usually part of "Other" but which I broke out as its own option (due to its rapid growth).

    You can pick multiple if appropriate.

    I'm a mix white/asian.
    Only thing dirtier than a sabreist, is an epeeist in bed.

    This poll is flawed. You're mixing race and ethnicities... one or the other dude.

    Take it up with the United States Census Bureau (www.census.gov). If you are talking about my breakout of Hispanic/Latin, you can just fold that back into "Other" as the census bureau does.

    Yeah, but the US Census Bureau didnt put up this poll. Just because they do some brain-dead thing doesnt mean you need to also.

    Probably a toss-up between the Iditarod, the Dipsea or the Kentucky Derby...

    Well if we're talking about the kind of antiquated concept of race why can't I pick Caucasoid/Mongoloid?!

    EDIT: Oh and 87.5% white and 12.5% Native American (Which actually is enough to qualify me for at least two different federal education grants! Although I haven't used them cause I feel it would be kind of silly of me to do so since for all intents and purposes I don't look Native American, and I have no connection to the community, and probably none of my descendents will either).

    OK, I've deleted the racist stuff. Please guys - do not feed the trolls. I shouldn't have to spell this out ... again. I deleted the replies to the trolling to keep the thread tidy - no other reason. If people would like to debate the race question I bet there are plenty of places on the net you can do that. This website, and specifically this forum, is supposed to be about fencing.

    If you find it offensive report it and I will deal with it as appropriate.

    I'm sorely tempted to pull this thread.
