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/

See our 2020 Census Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v72NslaIFNs Q. What’s the difference between an academic, a government worker, a social group and an advocate? A. The academic is still thinking about it, the government worker is still out of town, the social group is still having parties and the advocates got it all done.   Please share our video. We must spread the word on this ourselves. No one else is going to do it.

Census Bureau Reduces Multiracial Population

2020-01-21T06:30:43+00:00January 21st, 2020|

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 [...]

UC Berkeley must redesign data practices to give visibility to mixed-race students By Genevieve Xia Ye Slosberg | Staff Every mixed-race person is familiar with this moment — you fill out some sort of form, and it asks for your race. You check one of them, and then when you attempt to check another, it either unchecks the first or tells you you are unable to select more than one. So you begrudgingly either choose just one or click “Other.” This dilemma relates to a common complaint of multiracial individuals [...]

  We just want to thank everyone who made national Multiracial Heritage Week such a great success this year. We received written acknowledgment from 17 states and 4 mayors of large cities. Yes!

Shame on the Media

2019-03-22T08:27:25+00:00March 22nd, 2019|

SHAME ON THE MEDIA METRO.co.uk is a news outlet in the United Kingdom. I think of it as tabloid news for the English. Using Terminology I did warn you years ago that the terminology of “mixed-race” would lead to newspaper headlines of “mixed up,” which is exactly what a new METRO series is about. In fact, it’s called Mixed Up. A current headline is “Mixed Up: ‘Racism made me feel subhuman. I used to pretend to be anything but black.’” It’s about a poor woe-is-me woman who grew up confused [...]

Mixed ancestry might affect our mitochondria

2019-01-15T07:32:43+00:00January 15th, 2019|

I don't even know what to say about this. See article below. -Susan Graham for Project RACE Differences in the geographic origin of genes may affect the function of human mitochondria—energy-generating organelles inside of cells—according to a new study. Mitochondria have their own genome, separate from the nuclear genome contained in the nucleus of the cell, and both genomes harbor genes integral to energy production by mitochondria. The study explores whether these “mito-nuclear” interactions, which natural selection fine-tunes over deep evolutionary time, could change when genes of different geographic origins [...]

Dr. Meredith Grey vs Actress Ellen Pompeo?

2018-12-07T07:21:50+00:00December 7th, 2018|

  I admit my favorite TV Show is “Grey’s Anatomy” and one of my favorite actresses is Ellen Pompeo, who stars as Dr. Meredith Grey. Yes, I know Ellen is not a real doctor, she’s an accomplished actress and for that she needs a certain degree of intelligence. I recently found out that Pompeo, who is white, is married to a black man. So far, so good, but then she said that she is a “white lady with a black husband and black children.” She has also been outspoken about [...]

Comments by Susan Graham for Project RACE (Reclassify All Children Equally) Fall, 2018 National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic and Other Populations Meeting November 2, 2018   The Casey Foundation's 2018 KIDS COUNT® Data Book warns that the 2020 census is mired in challenges that could shortchange the official census count by at least two million kids younger than age 5. This discrepancy would also put hundreds of millions of federal dollars at risk and, in doing so, underfund programs that are critical for family stability and opportunity; essential programs like housing, [...]
