I emigrated to Canada >from the UK in the 1960's and on entry was
asked to state my ethnic group. I put down "Caucasian" and was told
this was not an acceptable category. I then wrote down white, to be
told this too was not acceptable. I professed I was stumped by the
question. The immigration officer on seeing that I was born in England
suggested I put down Anglo-Saxon. I can't, I said, I'm a Jew.OK then,
put down Hebrew. So I entered Canada as a Hebrew.
