Sounds like the propaganda war has begun. Which way do asian americans
(esp japanese americans) lean? Dem or GOP? Who ever they tend against is
probably putting out these stories to reduce the reporting from these
demographic groups, since congressional district remappings are
determined by census data. Considering that the census is trying to
really discriminate (emphasis) between members of the different asian,
polynesian, and hispanic groups, I wouldn't be surprised that some
disinformation comes out about how bad the census is for those groups
