Last March I urged readers to list “American” as their race on the census, as a (perfectly legal) protest against the absurd and unconstitutional race laws we live under. The next census may seem far away, but its parameters are being determined now, so this is the time to act. To that end, someone has started a petition at the White House site to “Remove Racial and Ethnic Classifications from the U.S. Census.” The site for such petitions explains that:
We created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.
“Enough support” in this case seems to mean 25,000 signatures by November 4. Now, obviously the White House is not going to act on this regardless of how many signatures it gets, but a big turnout would potentially be fodder for blog and media coverage and build political support for Congress to instruct the Census Bureau on what to include or exclude from the 2020 census form.
