  •  If you insist, the Census will record whatever (0+ / 0-)

    you want as your race.

    The Census is about self-identification. They will write down whatever you say.

    If you are (to the outside world) a White Man, but want to be considered a Black Women, the Census taker will record your self-identified answers.

    If you are not technically married, but consider your partner your husband or your wife, they will record that as well.

    And gender does not matter, if you want, you can claim a woman is your husband or a man is your wife.

    The Census is all about self-identification.
