Having recently completed their forms from the U.S. 2020 Census, James Keys and Tunde Ogulana take a look at the census and why participation is vital for having your interests addressed by our government (02:00). The guys also discuss how the handling of race in the 2020 Census illustrates that race as we know it is an artificial construct (10:49), speculate why the concept of race is used the way that it is (21:43), and consider whether race is used in the U.S. in an analogous way to the way tribe has been used in societies (44:47).
