Census and Black America

Tired of hearing about the Census 2010? It seems as if every advertisement or commercial is encouraging residents to fill out the Census. Their slogan is “It’s in our hands” can be seen on billboards, television and heard on radio stations. BET aired, “Be Counted: Black America and the 2010 Census,” to show the significance of the census and how it will impact black communities and black students. If you’re from the Caribbean and Africa, please fill out the form because we are usually under counted and need to use the $4oo billion to benefit ourselves and the future of our community.

Are you a college student that needs help filling out the form, check out this article.

Nas hosted this show and I gave a recap of this news special on my Twitter page. Hopefully this may inspire you to fill out the census.

Check it out here.
