Within the next two weeks the 2010 Census will be complete, however the race question has some Latinos wondering how to identify ourselves. I submitted my form last week and checked off three races: white, African, and Native American (personally counting Tainos from Puerto Rico as native Americans.) To represent all of my ancestry I could not just check one box. The race question has some Latinos either choosing white or black, or another race. What ever the choice eventually made, it’s most important to just get the form completed and sent back. So if you have not yet completed your Census form, get right to it. Every one really counts. This year’s Census will be extremely important for Latinos, so please spread the word and let’s get those forms sent back.
