is anyone else bothered by those ethnicity surveys found on standardized tests? the answer options always look like this:

1. hispanic
2. native american
3. black (not hispanic)
4. pacific islander
5. white (not hispanic)
6. asian

it seems like all they care about is whether or not you're hispanic, as if it's a different race even though you can be hispanic and be of any race because it just means you're from a spanish-speaking country i.e. area previously owned by spain. i know black people and white people and brown people that are all hispanic but it's not like that makes them any less black or white or whatever.
has anyone else noticed this? is anyone else bothered by this? like this country still has issues with spain or something.....
