MADERA, Calif. For most people, describing themselves on the U.S. Census form will be as easy as checking a box: White. Black. American Indian.
But it's not so simple for indigenous immigrants the Native Americans of Mexico and Central America. They often need more than one box because their ancestry can cover multiple Census categories, and they must also overcome a significant language barrier and a mistrust of government.
The Census Bureau wants to change that in the 2010 count as it tallies immigrant indigenous groups for the first time ever, hoping to get a more complete snapshot of a growing segment of the immigrant population.
In the 2010 Census, the bureau will tabulate handwritten entries specifying that the respondent belongs to a Central American indigenous group such Maya, Nahua, Mixtec, or Purepecha. The list of different populations that end up being counted will be made public when results are released in 2011, said Michele Lowe, spokeswoman for the Census Bureau.

I wonder if I can put “Aztec” on mine.
The Constitution only requires that I tell them how many people are living at my address.
And that’s all the info I’m going to give them...
ILLEGALS should NOT be part of the census.
Illegals should be deported.
Only if I can use Inca on mine.
Let’s just simplify things, and reduce it to two boxes: “Heartless Eurocentric Oppressor” and “Innocent Oppressed Victim.”
Set theory challenge.
This 2010 census is going to be a game changer.

I was born at UCLA.
I always check Native American.
Your challenge is denied, overruled by PC primacy.
How about Non-American or Non-US Indian. Otherwise, wouldn’t our own aborigines need to put Cherokee, Paiute, Navajo etc.? And then Indian is a misnomer anyhow. I have good friends with ancestors from India that are what? And they won’t be categorized with Sri Lankans...
Does anyone know why we even need to know what race Americans are? Is it to get percentages for health studies, or social services, or millionaires, or blue collar workers and manual laborers, or ethnic supermarkets?
Lets just simplify things, and reduce it to two boxes: Heartless Eurocentric Oppressor and Innocent Oppressed Victim.
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!
Then, a "Left-handed, lesbian, indiginous, oppressed, differently-abled, native, immigrant, transgendered citizen" would feel good about
his, her, its answer.
Mine going to be hard to read.
I’m going to feed it to the paper shreader before I mail it.
How many ways is that article painful? A Mayan interpreter for the local health clinic?
“Does anyone know why we even need to know what race Americans are?”
Because it requires more government employees, to push useless paper.
Because it establishes classes of victims.
Just our Liberal Globalist government pandering to Illegal Aliens again (which is what this story is really about).....valuing the rights of Illegal Aliens over the rights of American citizens.
Illegal Aliens should be deported, not counted
Here is the form online Census 2010
It's like they're practicing animal husbandry; they just don't want to call it that. The gubment already puts little radios in the endangered California Condors so they can keep track of the remaining ones... how long before they decide we're running low on Purepechas? Will they call them "the endangered Purepechas"? Will they round 'em up, put them in cages, and encourage them to breed? It's difficult to figure out where they go with this that isn't totally dehumanizing.
Whose government besides Hitler's kept such detailed lists about the racial makeup of the population?
