Did everyone get their 2010 Census in the mail today? I got it today, and filled it out, it only took about 5 minutes. I do wonder what the gov't will do if you dont fill it out ???

I saw something on TV yesterday that if you live in remote areas that can't be reached easily they will bring you a 2010 Cencus on horseback. I guess they really want it filled out.

the form confused me a bit...

one question asks if your hispanic. you have to fill out which.. and also fill out which race...
so.....
I selected Mexican, Mexican American, Chicano.

then it ask- for race...
the top 3 options are
White,
black, african american, Negro.
Native american, Alaskan native.- if so- list your registered tribe...

the rest I dont fall into...

I definitely am not white.
Im not black.
I sort of fit in with native american--- but I dont have a 'tribe' thats registered....

I didnt have a race I fit into.... I even called the number to get this little confusion corrected... but I was still confused.

in the end--- I manually filled in MESTIZO...
mestizo being a mixture of indian (amerindian) blood- with european blood.
Heck- you look at my grandma( dads side)- she looks like any Native american woman you see in pictures.
Moms- side has the european blood....

Thats whay I consider myself as...... if they have issues- they can call me. I gave them my number.
