Why does the US Census ask what race you are not not your citizenship ststus?

I identify myself as a United States citizen and a male. My race is irrelevant and so should everyone else's.

    The US Census cares more about race, than citizenship status, so they can blame poverty and crime on racism.

    Funny how the Census prefers you not be an American in America.

    Census counting illegals as if they were legal citizens is the biggest crime.

    The liberal left says they want a color blind society, where race is irrelevant and people are not judged by their skin color.

    But than they support census by race, judging wealth, and jobs by race, affirmative action by race, hate crimes, etc.

    Certain athletes and celebrities are celebrated for their race, gender or sexual orientation.

    OK, but if an employer has 20% Hispanics working for them, is that above average, below average or about right?

    Should they be reminded that they should be employing somewhere around the national average? If so, how would you know what the national average was?

      If they are legally registered in this country should not matter. Use your head.

    Race is an important metric for measuring a lot of different sociological phenomena. Citizenship is not really important, as evidenced by the fact that we have rarely asked for it in the past.

    Because race is a question that a person can answer honestly, at least for now. Citizenship is not; including that question would force many to refuse to answer or to lie.

    In this modern day and age of open borders and descrimatory taxes (punishing societies contributors). It doesn't really matter if you're a citizen of the country. In fact it's better for you if you aren't. Your kids get free healthcare, education, food, housing, and...because they're victims, they get a free college education. We're not supposed to know how many free-loaders there are.

    It is relevant tho. Without racial stats we cant pinpoint communities in need. We are able to understand how racism affects ppl when we know facts like POC are x% more likely to be poor. This way we know that POC might need more aid. That's a broad example but I think it expresses the point.

    Do other countries ask about citizenship in their censuses?

    Some do, including Canada, Australia, Ireland, Germany and Mexico, and the United Nations recommends the practice. The United States used to ask about citizenship as well, but since 1950 the question has not been included in the census forms that most people receive. (A much longer, more detailed questionnaire is sent to a small sample of households chosen at random.)

      The reason is we stopped excepting immigration for the most for decades. We want people to assimilate to be Americans.
