April 1 marks Census Day, and the resounding message is clear: Go fill the Census, y’all.
As black people, I’d argue that we have a particularly strong motivation to fill out the (approximately 10-question) survey: African Americans have been historically undercounted in America.
In the very first Census, black people were counted as ⅗ human. Fast forward to the 2010 Census 3.9 million black people were omitted.
Jeri Green is the 2020 Census Senior Advisor for the National Urban League. Green says that communities of color are increasingly undercounted in the Census.

The Census bureau is still Hiring as of 6/5/20. It is very Lucrative, fun, easy, Part time (your Hours) Temporary Job. I have so far paid off the car, a credit card, Insurance ($1000+), timing belt replaced ($1200), breaks are next, even some toys, not to menting more $$ in the Wallet. It is an opportunity that comes every 10 yrs. Join our team better your financial situation.

Nope I'll take that 100 dollar fine gladly. It was used as a tool too underfund and disenfranchised black people and natives and underfund school and many public services. Also.used as a tool for aggressive policing. I file my taxes, my birth is documents my race and all that other information is irrevalant as an America. I was born here and that's enough. 😊

Nope..... i don’t need any services, and I don’t give 2 shits about who is trying to run the government. I only care about the white, rich people in my white, rich gated community that the Census takers can’t enter because our security guards won’t let census takers in our white, rich gated community because they don’t live here. So put that in your bong and smoke it. Hahahahahahahaha

Im curious, how did they find out how 3.9 million were not counted in 2010? Exactly how did they come up with this amount?

I know you are probably a bot, but are you seriously hating on trying to educate people about their civic duties? I mean, if you don't want people complaining about something then you educate them and motivate them so that they actually do something, like maybe actually participating in the U.S. Census? If you don't participate, then you don't have a platform to be heard.
