Shutting Down the Rumor Mill

Charles Michael Byrd wrote an article for the very conservative Washington Examiner on July 31 about Kamala Harris. He wrote, “mixed-race Americans are rightfully concerned that the government might shelve the multiple box option altogether.” I had a long conference call with Census Bureau executives this week and they stated there are NO PLANS to do this and they have no idea where it came from. Indeed, when I wrote to Byrd and appealed to him on social media, he never answered. It’s true that you never know what will happen in Washington, especially with the current administration, but this was a surprise to the Census Bureau and they were adamant about the situation. Case closed.
