Lets Watch and Observe the 2010 U.S. Census

We have known for a long time that the US Census has plenty of kinks, although I personally wasn't aware of the intense political contentions surrounding the census until recently. Dr. King spoke about in his speech "A Knock at Midnight" how the census taker missed Black people and other people of color when counting the census because they "didn't count those that ran with the census taker came thinking that it was a bill-collector." Now, I am not sure what the Republicans want to do in terms of messing with the census to work for the advantage of white folks (and that,my darlings, is simply what it is) but we are going to watch and be damned if they try anything, because we will be on their asses.
