21st century American identity

I find it interesting to see how whiteness has always been something that needed policing due to its glorification, when in reality, whiteness has a very dark history of colonization in America. Secondly, is being at the top of the racial hierarchies related with population numbers or what are other factors that play in? I’m also curious to see how the census continues to identify people with Spanish ancestry or Latin America ancestry. Often times, identification forms like these force people into boxes that do not allow much room to truly explore ones personal identity. What is 21st century American identity and who are we proving this to?
