st: xi variable labels

I've been having a problem with the variable labels created by the command
xi. For example, I have a variable called race that takes on values 1-3.
When I type "xi i.race" the new variables _Irace_2 and _Irace_3 are
labeled "race==2" and "race==3". I would like them to be labeled with the
value label from the original variable. For example, if the value
race==2 was labeled "White" I would like the variable _Irace_2 to be
labeled "White", and so on.  This would make the graphs that I have to
make  a lot simpler.

Is there a simple way of doing this somehow without doing it by hand?
