DID THE CENSUS BUREAU “ALLOW” MULTIRACIAL PEOPLE ANYTHING?

2020-10-19T13:53:46+00:00October 19th, 2020|

Did the Census Bureau “allow” multiracial people anything? A new scholarly paper has come out, published by Sage Publications. It’s called “How Policies Can Address Multiracial Stigma” and begins with this: On the second anniversary of the first U.S. Census that allowed Americans to indicate more than one race, public policies and interventions should consider addressing Multiracial-specific forms of stigma. Some of the writers of this paper have written before that the U.S. Census Bureau “allowed” multiracial people to choose more than one race in 1997. One of the writers, [...]

We deal with Washington and communicate with every [...]

NO to the New York Times

2020-10-16T14:31:12+00:00October 16th, 2020|

TO THE NEW YORK TIMES: AN OPEN LETTER TO THE ETHICIST It is ironic that Kwame Anthony Appiah is “the ethicist” for the New York Times. An ethicist is a person who specializes in or writes on ethics or who is devoted to ethical principals. Appiah is “the ethicist” for the NY Times and wrote a column last week titled “I’m Jewish and Don’t Identify as White. Why Must I Check that Box?” The particularly important first fact is that the writer doesn’t have to check the White box at [...]

Finally!

2020-10-14T12:47:23+00:00October 14th, 2020|

The 2020 Census. Yesterday, the Supreme Court gave the Trump admin the green light to stop its count of the US population – ahead of schedule. The ruling is considered a win for the admin, which had moved up the deadline from October 31 to September 30, saying it needed to finish early to have enough time to process the data by the end of the year. But civil rights groups sued, arguing the change would lead to a serious undercount – particularly of immigrants and people of color. And [...]

Ms. Magazine Tries a Little Harder, but gets Confused

2020-10-08T20:51:43+00:00October 8th, 2020|

Ms. Magazine tries harder, but gets confused. Two of their writers, Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn and Haley Taylor Schlitz wrote an article titled "Politicizing Blackness, Multiracial Love and Identity: "That we Make of this Moment is on Us." They say, "For our part, we both identify as Black women. Janice is a Gen-X Californian born to two African American parents. Haley is a Texas Gen-Zer of mixed-parentage: half-white and half-Black. But in an America still held hostage by the vestiges of slavery, and the “one drop rule,” we are both seen as [...]

NBC Missed the Mark

2020-10-08T20:34:10+00:00October 8th, 2020|

NBC MISSED THE MARK Saloni Gajjar of NBC completely missed the concept of Kamala Harris being biracial when he wrote this: “Sen. Kamala Harris' facial expressions while Vice President Mike Pence was responding to questions about the administration's Covid-19 response during Wednesday's debate were a hit across social media. And Asian Twitter and Black Twitter put their own spin on it. Many joked that Harris, who's the first Black person and the first Indian American to appear on the vice presidential debate stage, was giving looks reminiscent of a disapproving [...]
