On July 3, 2020, the D.C. Policy Center’s article, D.C. is hard to count. Here’s where officials could target efforts for the 2020 Census, was cited by Mashable:
D.C. is “becoming more and more white… It’s pretty hard to see race as a factor in the denial [of statehood]. I think it’s far more political than racial,” says Norton. D.C.’s population is 46 percent Black and 37 percent white when Latinos aren’t included in that count, according to the Census Bureau. Though the D.C. Policy Center, a nonpartisan think tank, suggests Black and Latino residents were undercounted and white residents were overcounted in the 2010 national census.
