California Race Narrative AB-1726

A friend circle shared a picture on how a new California law AB-1726 is dividing Asian American into more than 20 categories for some data collection purpose. I hope Maryland will not follow the path.

While I am writing this blog, I just notice Hispanic/Latino is already the majority in California. I am wondering how many categories they can get to divide Hispanic or white or black races. Or I can see multi-race group can be expanded to more than one hundred subgroups without any difficulty.

This is some kind of racial profiling. How about just one human race under the same roof?  We really do not need create more divisions than unite each other.

It is called AB-1726. http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160AB1726
