Most of the questions on the 2010 census short form concern race. If the government doesn’t as an institution believe that differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, or doesn’t want to provide favor based upon race, or doesn’t want to develop congressional voting districts based on race, why does it need racial data.
I believe it makes no difference whether someone is black, white, brown, red or pink with yellow pokadots, nor is it any of the government's business asking questions like that anymore than it would be for an employer in the private sector.
Therefore these questions must be considered:
The constitutional mandate for doing the census is to determine congressional representation in the House of Representatives, period. Since that is the reason for the census, the only logical conclusion is that the government needs racial data to create congressional districts to either promote or hinder representation based on race. This is a racist policy and a racist use of census data. I cannot in good conscious support racist policy, laws, or actions, so have not provided any data concerning the race of those who live in my household, and urge you to do the same. If you must enter a race I urge you to select other and write in “American” or “Human” or “Homo Sapiens”.
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, so do the American people, why doesn't our government share that dream?
