New option at doctors – Eastern European

Anonymous,
Baltimore, MD.

When people discuss race, they seem to refer to only people of color. I always check Caucasian on forms. At the doctors yesterday, there was a new option, Eastern European. It felt like a better fit for me. Just because my skin lacks pigment, doesn’t mean that I am the same as everyone else without much pigmentation. It goes back to how race is defined. In some countries, Jewish is considered a race.
