Do you remember this racially-insensitive book from the '90s?

Does anyone remember this book, or the controversial argument at its core? It would have been published in the late 1990's, and argued that blue eyed candidates got the job more often than thier brown eyed peers- a friend mentioned the book, which I vaguely remember, but neither one of us can find a title or author. Help!

Legal to require race/ethnicity information of employees?

Is it legal for employers (specifically schools and government employees) to require race and ethnicity to be reported? It was my understanding that providing such information was always voluntary, but a friend who works for a high school just told me he was required to provide the information, and that if he didn't self report it, the school was required to report it based on what other employees thought. Is that legal? When did it become legal to require information that was previously required to be voluntary only?
