FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 21, 2020 Susan Graham Project RACE Email: susangraham@projectrace.com   CENSUS BUREAU REDUCES MULTIRACIAL POPULATION San Joaquin Valley, CA -The United States Census Bureau has chosen to exclude the multiracial group from the 2020 Census by giving false instructions to biracial people who call or email the bureau for direction on how to fill out their census forms. They also have excluded the group from all marketing and advertising material, unlike they have done for every other racial and ethnic group. If a multiracial person does not [...]

Where are all the multiracial people? Part 2

2019-01-24T10:18:02+00:00January 24th, 2019|

The United States Census Bureau put out a 165-page report today called “2020 Census Barriers, Attitudes, and Motivators Study (CBAMS) Focus Group Final Report.” Basically, it’s about people who don’t want to fill out their census forms. The main reasons found were privacy concerns, apathy, fear of repercussions, and lack of time. The report is full of the focus groups they studied, including African American, Native American, Hispanic, Chinese, middle-eastern, rural, and on and on. However, it appears that the one group not included is the “two or more races” [...]

Real American: A Memoir BOOK REVIEW

2017-11-21T09:53:57+00:00November 21st, 2017|

Book Review by Susan Graham Real American: A Memoir I read a review of Real American: A Memoir by Julie Lythcott-Haims in The New York Times yesterday. It said Julie Lythcott-Haims’ new memoir is about growing up biracial. It’s not. It’s about growing up black. If you want to get really angry, read this book. In fact, it should be required reading for anyone even thinking about being in an interracial relationship and especially parents of multiracial children. In so many ways, it’s a primer on what not to do. [...]

Save the Census By THE EDITORIAL BOARD  Source: The New York Times Photo A census bureau worker in Houston in 2010. Credit Johnny Hanson/Houston Chronicle, via Associated Press An administration uninterested in staffing federal agencies, at war with facts and eager to help Congress cut the budget is further endangering a cornerstone of American democracy: the duty to count all who live here. Every decade since 1790, as required by the Constitution, the federal government has undertaken a painstaking census of its people, the accuracy and fairness of which serves [...]

Happy Fourth of July!
