    I got 12 right. The Hispanic Category throws the evaluation to the curb as it is not a true "racial classification. If you get 14 right you could still be 100% correct. There is are Latinos there that have African, Asian, Native American and European ancestry.

    I got 9 correct and oddly enough I got none of the Hispanic/Latino's correct, and only 2 of the Black folks right. I must say this is a bit disturbed by the curly gray haired man that identifies as white/hispanic but not Black...his facial features/hair are anything but caucasian..interesting.

    He has about the same African and European ancestry. Probably raised in PR or some other place that has rules similar to the ODR in reverse.

    That's what I was thinking, since technically almost anyone there could have been ''Hispanic''. The other category I had a problem with was "Asian" since it did not specify whether it included South Asians or people from Asia Minor in with East Asian.
