To hell with you, census!

I was looking at the census that our physical address got. There are two households at this physical address, but the census only sent us one census, and the lady in the front house filled it out for her house only. Anyway, I was looking at it and there's this section for asking about if you're hispanic, latino, chicano, etc, etc. This is all well and good.

The next section, about race? Yeah... it doesn't LIST Mexican. So we would have to check the other box and then write it in.

They don't even list my minority, which happens to be a majority minority in the country, as an option? WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SHIT?!

Ugh. Anger.

I think our idea of race must evolve. I mean for years I've asked just what is "white". I mean so many people claim to be white, but just what is it. I am just sad if all these hispanics are claiming "white" and maybe the funding that they use the census for won't go to the lower income/group of people who need it. It's a sad day.
