    What on earth does “African and Asian Americans, Latinos, and Whites” have to do with any of this. And in the interest of consistency, shouldn’t it be “African and Asian and European Americans, and Latinos”? Though that still leaves out Middle Eastern Americans and South American Americans. And some Latinos are white and others are of African descent. And if we’re going with “white”, why not, “blacks, browns, whites, and people of all melanin concentrations.”

    What a cluster F.

    Or we could just (correctly) go with “people.”
