Federal Update

Currently, the Census Bureau, Department of Commerce and other cohorts are discussing tabulation schemes to handle check-all-that-apply responses.  In my humble opinion, the decision will be that check all that apply responses will be counted in only one category and that there will be no tabulation of multiple responses, in effect, erasing multiracial people from the official count.  This is what the recognized “civil rights” groups wanted.  They will likely get it.  At least at first.  This blatant racism and reversion to the one-drop rule will not
be tolerated by the interracial/multiracial community.  Stay tuned for an alert when the decision comes down.  Then the next phase in the assault on Jim Crow begins.

In the future this mailing will go out only through ListBot (the new newsletter provider).  Due to constant problems with GetReminded.com (the current newsletter provider) I will cease sending the newsletters out through them.  If you wish to receive future mailings, please enter you email address in the ListBot link box on this page:
