The following two questions are about race and ethnicity, which is tricky because we're an international site and there are large differences in how race is defined between different cultures.

For that reason, question 15 is just an easy way for us to see how many readers are non-white, since the majority of most English-speaking skeptics' sites are very white.

Question 16 is an attempt to see the specific breakdown, but the options listed are US-centric. Feel free to choose more than one or list a new race or ethnicity under "other."

NOTE: Anyone who writes "human" in the "other" box will be assumed white and clueless.

Another tricky question coming up! We can't list every country on this survey so we broke it down more or less by continent, but split up what Americans call North America because not everyone calls it that and because most of our readers are American, so we'd like to see the percentage. We've included an "other" for any Islanders or Antarctica researchers who feel they aren't covered by the other options.
