Yes, I filled out my census form.


And yes, for question number 9, I selected the box labeled "Negro." Because some of us are still living in 1960.

Did you get a misprint? Because that's not the only thing the label said.

It said many other things, too, but they didn't make for a funny post. :)

I took issue with question 9 as well.
White is just white, not European American, Caucasian, just regular white. Then Black, African-American, Negro.

No one has ever called me a Negro before (at least to my face or written for that matter), I just hate to think the US Government will be the first to do it.

What really pisses me off though is that from a biological sense, race doesn't exist.

Why do they have to gerrymander so there can be the one black or one hispanic or one whatever token representative. They say it is to give resources. Well I want to live in an america where it doesn't matter if you are a lady american or a chinese american or a negro american, the resources should be available for all americans.

I want to live in an America where I can fuel my car with rainbows and dreams. In the words of Dwight Schrute, gas ain't free.
