    got it filled out, my question is,….. in a country so determined on abolishing racism, why are we still counting colors. geez.

  5. Ankit, Please contact the Telephone Questionnaire Assistance Center at 1-866-872-6868. Also you can pick up a form at one of our Be Counted sites. http://2010.census.gov/2010census/take10map/ Be counted sites are not private homes, but libraries, churches, town halls, local business etc. Be Counted forms are available for anyone who did not receive a 2010 Census form or believes that they were missed on their household’s form.

  6. James, The collection of race and Hispanic origin information is important and required. The Census Bureau collects race and Hispanic origin information in order to provide data required by various federal programs, laws and regulations, as codified by the Office of Management and Budget’s guidance on collecting and tabulating information on race and Hispanic origin.

  7. DLS says:

    1. You can’t abolish something you don’t understand. Pretending race doesn’t exist never makes racism go away. People who pretend we live in a “melting pot” or “post-racial” society often due so (often unintentionally) to remove responsibility from themselves. Because if racism doesn’t exist anymore, how could they be racist?
    2. One of the laws and regulations that paul mentioned is the Voting Rights Act. Since the Census is used for redistricting, the Voting Rights Act stipulates that the districts can’t be drawn on the basis of race. The only way to know this is to count them.
