The US Census. Yesterday, a federal judge barred the Trump admin from ending the 2020 Census a month early. Reminder: The admin had moved up the deadline from October 31 to September 30, saying it was needed in order to process all data before the end of the year. But civil rights groups sued, arguing it would lead to a serious undercount that would disproportionately impact immigrants and people of color. And a federal judge agreed. The census determines how many seats each state gets in the House. And how federal [...]

Some mixed-race people say they feel like foreigners in their own country

An excellent article on mixed race Japanese. It states, “There is no box to tick on census forms for people of mixed heritage, says Shimoji, from Ritsumeikan University. Japanese census forms do not, he says, ask respondents for their ethnic and racial backgrounds nor for the nationalities of their parents not registered in a family unit.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/22/asia/japan-mixed-roots-hafu-dst-hnk-intl/

The Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

2020-09-22T16:43:03+00:00September 20th, 2020|

We at Project RACE are mourning the death of Associate Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday, September 18, 2020. She was generally viewed as part of the liberal wing of the court. Ginsburg received attention in American popular culture for her fiery liberal dissents. She was playfully and notably dubbed “The Notorious R.B.G.” by a law student, a reference to the late Brooklyn-born rapper The Notorious B. I. G. She later embraced the moniker. Ginsburg died at her home in Washington, D. C. [...]

It reminds me of the struggles of the multiracial population.
