These categories are increasingly meaningless. In another 100 years, we'll reach a point where very few people are "white" but where 90% of the collective ancestry will be of European origin. Melting pot, indeed.

They aren't meaningless when it comes to health, wealth, education, and a host of other factors.

These racial categories are completely arbitrary. Any meaning applied to them is mis-associated.

I love good quizzes and the resulting conversations. Funny, actually not funny at all, that the GOP wins states like Georgia with so many poor people, largely black. Long history of voter suppression, yeah!

Georgia is not "largely black." Whites are the clear majority. Virtually all Georgian whites vote Republican, so it's not surprising the GOP carries it.

GOP supposedly uses voter suppression in the south, Dems use voter fraud in the cities. Oh well.

Virtually every other first world country has very strict voting laws. 'Voter suppression' is just an excuse to have lax voter ID laws.

You also have to realize that while Democrats handily win most Hispanic votes, the GOP does carry around a quarter of Hispanic votes each election (Trump's national average among Hispanics was 29%). So in a state like Texas, where the GOP is destroying the white vote, and winning a not inconsiderable percentage of minority votes, they can still easily carry the state.

Mainly because of the 'Hispanic' category. Someone of fully white, European descent is considered as Hispanic. Hispanic is more of a cultural label than a racial one. People from Spain as well as whites living in Mexico are considered Hispanic.

All these distinctions are cultural. Most scientists believe that race doesn't exist. Even if it did, what about multi-racial people. For example, Barack Obama is just as much white as he is black.

Quizmaster dropping the ultimate truth bomb, race is a social construct. As is most of the bullshit humans fight about.

Actually Obama’s mother has some black ancestors, so he cannot be as black as he is white. Critical thinkers will however note the uncanny semblance of Obama to the man who raised him, Frank Marshal Davis, who was a controversial figure that would have posed problems for Obama’s political aspirations. As for the matter of race being a “social construct” you may as well say that DNA is a social construct and that ~100,000 years of selective adaptation to distinct environments has managed to impart no differences to over 7 billion descendants of this process. You are preening politically correct (neo-Bolshevik) mantras that are endlessly repeated in the mainstream precisely because race is a reality and race differences are real (and measurably so), from relative position on r/K scale, twinning rate, height, bone density, testosterone levels, rate of ageing, IQ, reaction times, impulse control, body fat, et cetera… Self-deceiving post-racialists are playing semantics and nothing more.

Interesting how you have to say "most scientists". Funny how there isn't consensus... almost as if it's a political matter... What would be necessary to manifest in the human population in order to prove that race is real and that it is a biological construct? What level of difference? Do you consider it racism to refer to dogs by their breeds? Are subunits of the species taxon like breed and subspecies only applicable to plants and animals while humans are sufficiently clonal in composition? I guess empirical evidence is no match for creationist "truth bombs" coming from ethnomasochistic white liberals (who ironically are uniquely self-critical and hyper-egalitarian from the unique evolutionary conditions of isolated pastoral communities of Northern Europe). There are scientists like Philipe Rushton, Richard Lynn, Charles Murray & William Shockley - and then there are 'scientists' who are establishment minions who want to write for the Scientific American and be on TV like Bill Nye.

Maryland? I guess Baltimore and greater DC must make up a high percentage of the state's population.

"Greater DC" of course means those areas just outside DC.

Yes, Baltimore and the DC suburbs make up a large majority of Maryland's population. Physically there's not much of the state left once you remove Baltimore and the DC suburbs!

Given that there's enough time to type all 50 states, this quiz doesn't require any particular insight into the subject matter. Embarrassingly, I ended up typing 49 of the states because Maryland didn't occur to me.

I also came quite far before getting Maryland, should've gone straight north from Florida instead of trying other seemingly likely candidates

Quizmaster is right. Another thing meaningless is the idea of hispanic as different from white or black always. Many people from hispanic countries are full on european background...they just speak spanish. Also there's the cool factor in that many people just want to be different. I had a blond blue eyed buddy try and tell me he was part indian and black...and he may have had that several generations down the line...but it really seems to be a case of calling yourself something that you wish more than are.

If your friend had the recessive genes on both sides of his family tree he could have been part Native American and/or African American, yet have blond hair and blue eyes or skin color variations. Ancestry cannot be determined just by one's "looks". Genetics has moved a long way from the old "two blue-eyed parents cannot have a brown-eyed child" myth.

I wonder how meaningful this quiz is... mainly because of the 'white Hispanic' category. Where someone is fully of European white ancestry but they speak Spanish. Hispanic is more of a cultural label than a racial one.
