Demographic Demagoguery: Gregory Rodriguez’s views on race and the census just don’t add up

"we are not entering a multiracial era, we have always been multiracial."

 

"...‘race’ is a social, not biological construct; originally designed for the commoditization, exploitation, oppression and near extermination of African, indigenous (and later Asian) populations."

 

"Race is an evolving convention that is constantly being constructed, deconstructed, and reconstructed to preserve the hegemony of those holding social and political power in the United States.

Our decennial census is a tool that helps us measure our social interactions on the ground; not our dead ancestors in the ground."

 

-Steven F. Riley
