I don’t capitalize “white,” either.

In the interest of absolute fairness, I will no longer capitalize any race descriptors.

Furthermore, I will review all my posts and update historic mentions of race or ethnicity to lower case (hispanic, asian).  While not grammatically sound, I’m going for consistency.  I don’t believe ethnicity should receive any special language treatment.

*I will continue to capitalize nations of origin when describing a person’s nationality, ie, Ugandan, Norwegian, Cambodian.
