    Who are you

    Don't really care about specifics. Just want to know who other programmers are. Not the best way to find out, but oh well.

    I selected racist because it is. The Internet is a color-blind forum of discussion, and bringing up the topic only serves to remind people of society's failure to change its way of thinking. I prefer to look forward to the day when we will identify ourselves and others just as fellow human beings.
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.

    So you're saying it's wrong for me to be curious? I don't think so. You don't have to answer, I was just interested to know, and I don't believe that's racist.

    stop being so dramatic and lighten up....it is people like YOU that in fact bring up these lame topics. Sure, internet is color blind...but will this post suddenly fill in the color for you?? you still don't know what I voted for, and even if you did, I could've lied.

    edit the options on the poll are pretty stupid thought....how can you compare black and european...what if i'm white or black and european? are you going for race ere or nationality....what if I'm neither and I'm from antarctica and an eskimo?

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    I think he was more or less just curious. It's not really a large deal what color you are.

    This was my goal. It's not like I'm gonna not ask for your help because you're not the same race as me.

    So I'm not that imaginative. If you want to start a poll with as many as you can think of, then go ahead. I prolly should've added an Other option as well.

    if you added "other" most of the votes would vote there...it has actually been proven that on questions of race on applications/surveys and such when given the option for "other" most people check that.

    I feel this is racist. Because, in forum, we shouldn't care about who you are, what is your job. I just interest what you post and what others answer to my posts.

    I feel that people who feel this is racist have nothing to do than gripe over a thread.

    I check that... I really don't care if people know what I am, but I just find it hyporcritical when people say they want equality, but want to keep benefits that help minorities like the NAACP (nothing personal)... IMO, if you want equality, it has to be both ways... you can't be equal if your going to play the race card to get ahead...
