First Question: Are you Hispanic or Latino?  Yes  No Second Question: What is your race?  American Indian or Alaska Native  Asian  Black or African American  Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander  White This is off of the form for Food Stamps in Illinois. My question is this, as I have seen this on other forms. Why is Hispanic/Latino/ Mexican/ whatever always asked as a separate question when regarding race? AND ......since we are feeding these people with AMERICAN tax dollars, why not ask if they or anyone else they know is...  An illegal who snuck into the US  A gang member from a foreign country  If they ever had anything to do with the transporatation of illegal drugs  If they know anyone who is involved with drugs. ....etc....etc.....! Stop giving them something for nothing! PS....You would think the first question they would ask is "Are You An American"?
