Default Caucasian...WTF!!!!

The other day I went to the registars office and requested an original copy of my "Birth Certificate". My jefita had lost mine.

Pues after I got it, I began to walk out of the building as I'm reading it, I stopped at the sound of brakes screaching in my head.

I notice something that was very wrong and confusing on my birth certificate. When I got to the "color or race" of both my mother and father it read "Caucasian" WTF!!!!

I went back into the building and brought this typo to the attention of the same lady who gave me my copy and I had told her "Excuse me, but you made a mistake on my birth certificate. It's reads that my parents were caucasian, when in fact they are mexican-americans" She took a look at it and responded "sorry sir, but this is no typo, this is excatly what is on you birth certificate and we do not alter these". " I don't understand" I said to her.She continued with some shit about, back in the days the had no known name for the mexican people, it wasn't until the 80's that they started putting "Hispanic or Latino" on birth certificates.

I looked at her all confused and shit and asked "Is there anyway you can change this, I won't tell anyone".

Phuck! I have to live the rest of my life with my "Birth Certificate" saying my parents were "Caucasian".

Anyone else in this situation? and don't lie phuckers!

I think you might be able to get it changed, but couldn't tell you how to do it.

In the United States, Caucasian has primarily been used as a distinction based on skin color, for a group commonly referred to as White Americans, as defined by the government and Census Bureau.[12]

In contemporary U.S. parlance, Caucasian and white are slowly being replaced with European American as a racial identifier. As with African American, the term has the advantage of describing two characteristics; both the ancestry of the person and his or her more immediate nationality and culture. In addition, older identifiers do not as accurately describe some populations. Some Latinos in the United States can be scientifically categorized as Caucasoid, but may not be labelled as white (by themselves or others).

On my birthcertificate? No.
For my badge application to enter a government facility? yes.
I'm classified as White/Other.

I asked why there wasn't even a choice for latino or hispanic and she had no answer at all. just a blank stare. so you ain't alone bro.

My birth certificate says my race is Caucasian also so when I'm asked what my race is? I usually say "According to my birth certificate my race is caucasian." Of course I have studied my history and identity to know that my race consists of a combination of 3 races: African, American Indian and Caucasian so I tell persons who ask me what my race is, I tell them that its a racial mixture of 3.

Technically, we are Caucasian, but many of us are also technically African and American Indian. Since we are mostly Spanish speaking people with some European Latin blood, the government considers us Caucasian because Anglos and Latins are 2 cultures that have European origins.

Because we have been heavily influenced, dominated and assimilated by two competing European cultures: Anglo and Latin, we unconsciously refer to ourselves as Caucasian when we call ourselves Latino or Hispanic, terms that both deny that we are of African and American Indian descent. So if you call yourself Latino and Hispanic, but deny that you are also of African and American Indian descent, then by definition you are a White Caucasian .

This is why I don't refer to myself as Hispanic or Latino because these terms do not acknowledge my other races.

Before a certain year (sometime in the 70's), "hispanic" wasnt an option on birth certificates.

My older siblings birth certicates all have them as "Caucasion" even though we have the same parents and mine says "Hispanic".

Good question but I don't know the answer. And if we can, what would be the appropriate racial identiy name that would be scientifically and historically accurate?

I'd just carry that birth certificate with me always. I'd pull it out anytime a cop pulls me over or a pickup truck with confederate flags painted on it corners me.
