Eugenic-

This is the third thread you've started on this with the same question. Another already still going here in Pre-Allopathic (in which someone answered your question and you've thanked them for it) and another in Allopathic.

Double posting is bad.

Triple posting is obnoxious, especially when folks are already helping you on another.

What are you looking for?

Cross posting is not permitted on SDN. Your posts are identical. Since you're new I wasn't sure if you were familiar with SDN policies.

Nonsense? Uh..... here's your reply to the last post on the other thread you opened:

thank you so much you just made my day :D
Doesn't sound like you thought it was nonsense there.

No need for the rage, Eugenic. Just clueing you in about SDN's policy for cross posting. Best of luck.

I won't go into what the definitions mean, as folks on the last thread defined each one pretty nicely. To answer your specific status:

If I understand you correctly, you are an American whose family came from Mexico whose ancestors are traced back to Spain, correct? I'm assuming that your folks are not Spanish who immigrated to Mexico.

For Jefferson, for Question 11 (Racial/Ethnic Self Description), they have the following options that could apply to you:

Hispanic
Mexican American
Mexican, Mex. American, Chicano

This question is optional and is probably just for statistic purposes. It's messy anyway because the second is a subgroup of the third which is a subgroup of the first. Personally, I'd go with the second, unless you were born in Mexico, in which case you could go with the third.

For Question 13 (URM Ethnicicty), your relevant options are:

Hispanic
Mexican American

Since your family is from Mexico, I'd go with the second since it's more specific. Hope this helps.
