When filling out an 'equal opportunities' form (usually when applying for jobs etc) in the UK, there are several classes of race, such as;
Asian (Middle East)
Asian (Eastern - Chinese / Japanese)
Why is there only one type of white listed? A white applicant could be west-european, east-european, nordic, american, australian, etc. etc. All resulting in just as much cultural and geographical differences as the different 'classifications' of black or asian.
Is this not reverse racism?
Could someone who works as HR or personnel please explain why this is?
