I have recently been given my late mother's autopsy reports and noticed that she is named in full but the description of her is of a  "white woman". She was of the Irish race and ethnicity and very proud of that. 

I personally feel that white or black for that matter are not appropriate descriptive terms for any human being. 

Many people have pride in their race and ethnic origin and come from a variety of different countries.  Together they work hard across all sectors to make Great Britain what it is and develop the British Economy.  It would be seen as degrading and dehumanising by many to be described as "black" and "white" as these do not even classify as colours. Not to mention discounting the many other ethnicities residing in the UK.

It would be a small but respectful change for all to be described based on race and ethnic origin.
