Earlier this year when I learned that the Census Bureau included the classification of “Negro” on the 2010 census form I didn’t think it was a big deal but ironically I do now.
If you know me, then you know that I hate the term African American with a passion & that I consider myself to be Negro, Black or an African caught up in America.
What is an African American anyway? No, I won’t go there now. Not in the mood…
So anyway, when I got my census form the other day. I was turned off with the mandatory completion statement on the envelope & was ready to toss that bitch. Why is the census mandatory but voting is optional? What kind of mess is that? I’m just saying.
Then I open it up today to see the Negro classification & all of the other information they are attempting to collect & I’m like no! I’m too busy!
Why can’t this be submitted online? They had 10 years to prepare since the last one to plan? I’m so tempted to get a little chicken grease on it before sending it in.
The way I see things, Negroes shouldn’t have to complete this shit until we get the 40 acres & mule that was promised to our ancestors. Just saying!
I guess I will rest my militant Negro ways to avoid harassment by our government. And I really don’t want a census worker coming to my house cause I’d hate to pull a “Silence of the Lambs” move!

If you’re planning on being militant & not sending your form in just know the following:
– The census response is required by law according to Title 13 section 221 of the United States Code.
– A fine of up to $5,000 can be imposed for failure to respond to the census
And yes, I know that I’m somewhat contradicting myself with my racial identification preference but that’s how I do.
