The running joke in the Black community that everyone has a little Indian in them, is being taken as serious business in Washington, DC. Public schools in the nation’s capital will allow students to claim more than one racial background next year, the Washington Post reports today. The number of Hispanic students is expected to grow, while Whites and Blacks will shrink. Surrounding areas of the city have already asked parents to begin to update their children’s records in an effort to better track the progress and demographics of students. –CJ
