Nonwhites make up seven out of ten of the latest Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) “Ten Most Wanted” list — and six are officially classified as “white” by the distorted racial classification system currently in use by the US Government.
The seventh nonwhite is an Indian who does not have racial classification on his “wanted” sheet.
The FBI follows the US Census Bureau’s adherence to the 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards on race and ethnicity which, define “races” as the following:
White – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.
Black or African American – A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa.
American Indian or Alaska Native – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) and who maintains tribal affiliation or community attachment.
Asian – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander – A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.
In other words, anyone who does not fall into one of the “black,” “American Indian,” “Asian,” or “Native Hawaiian” is classified as white.
