Old Grizzly Folklore: What's in a Name (24) RE: Folklore: What's in a Name 03 Sep 06

On the 2001 census, there was a category for 'Any other black background' along with a box to fill in

It might also be noted that the last census form 'Ethnic Group' categories for Whites included for 'British' 'Irish' & 'Other'

This managed to upset a huge number of English, Welsh and Scottish folks who, against all official instructions, including threats of beheading for treason, all insisted on classifying themselves by their country in the 'other' section.

Such was the outcry, that I understand these categories will be included in the next census.
