“It is not about self identity; when I'm in self idenity race, I will answer accordingly. The Census is about "the distribution of money". There's not a bucket of money called "OTHER"; therefore, if we want more money contributed to our schools, better books for our kids, cleaner neighborhoods, garabage picked up, more services, and a healthier enviroment for our neighborhoods, the box called "African American" needs to be checked so that the dollars that truly represent AA is put in that bucket to provide those services for our kids. I don't know where "other" goes but I imagine it is somewhere other than the African American community.”
