Identity Crisis in America

Is it me or is America confused about the difference between race and nationality. In your last job application what box did you check.  If you are White it was easy.   What about if you are Black, not American,  Hispanic and and never been to Africa what box would you check?  What if you are White born in Africa and now American citizen would you check the African American box?

It seems the applications go both by race and by nationality.  So, which is it that people want to know.  What is the purpose behind checking the box to know where you came from or what you look like? It is no wonder America is confused.
