Snohomish County Gets Beyond Race

If by "gets beyond race", I mean treats people differently based on race and in the process implies one race is poor and diseased.

The Seattle Times has a blurb on how Snohomish County is doing a public service... just for one race.
Snohomish Health District will offer free, anonymous or confidential HIV testing on Monday for black people who are at risk.

No appointments are needed for the tests from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Rucker Building, 3020 Rucker Ave., Suite 106, in Everett. People who want an appointment can call 425-339-5298.

The test requires a drop of blood pricked from a finger, and results are ready within 30 minutes. Participants do not need photo identification, proof of residence or nationality.

I may need to make a phone call tomorrow to find out how exactly they determine what race you are. Could they be using the "one drop rule"?
