US Census and Race

The U. S. Census Bureau had plans of sending large questionnaires out to the public which FAR exceeded the Constitutional mandate to count the public. There was a large public outcry and I am happy to report that the form that they ended up sending out simply "counted" the number of people in each household. I have no problem complying with the law of the land and this ten-year process is now complete as far as I am concerned.

In addition to counting each person, there were detailed questions of race. I'm not sure how a person decides what race he or she is. For example, Barack Hussein Obama, born to a white mother and a black father would never call himself "white".  And there was no box to check that would indicate a racial blending.

Barack "Barry" Hussein Obama with grandparents.

So I don't know how the US Government will resolve such seemingly politically incorrect issues.

Frankly, I don't care - but somebody does, because racial identification constituted three questions on the form for each household member.

I am glad that our government decided simply to count the number of individuals per family and didn't violate our Constitutional rights. It seems that the Census hasn't kept up with Liberalism's political correctness with regards to race.

obama and his ilk seem very race conscious.

Hi LL, I got mine in the mail today too, and
I noticed it didn't ask scores of nosy questions like had been predicted, but I still don't like putting my name
and phone number on it.....and my race.
or anything else really, but I'm still deciding how to fill out.

I see around the net people saying they are "American". Like Michelle Malkin.

Don't they have an "undecided" or "unsure" box on the form?

Oops! I think the census thing that came in the mail got throw away...on accident.
