Claim Your Identity

Thought of the Day: Interesting how leaders, our governments and various non-profit organizations are encouraging communities of Middle Eastern descent to complete their Census forms. BUT why are we not considered an ethnicity like all other diversity groups -- or at least the 29 represented on the Census. I urge you all to ask your legislators to claim your existence as one of the most influential and diverse groups in the States. Under others write: Middle Eastern.

Ethnicity can be broken down under the Middle Eastern categories. Selection of ethnicity can include: Arabs, Persian, Turkish, Armenian, Israeli, Middle Eastern non-arabs, etc.. It is time to raise your voice. Subscribe to ALO online and learn more about this subject.
