I have for a long time resented filling in forms where I have to refer to myself as black British. I look forward to changes that provides descriptive information without alienating myself or others. Thank you.

I am signing because these categories force all kinds of people into boxes that don't tell us much but encourage stereotyping. I am of English, Scots, French, German, Polish and Russian descent. I never know which ONS categories to tick. Moreover, my (German) Saxon ancestors are no less Saxon than the people of Saxon ancestry who call themselves English.
