Is the Census Bureau Ignoring the African American Community?

I was listening to Chicago Speaks on V103 FM this past Sunday morning and former Alderman Dorothy Tillman, Ty Wansley, and Darlene Hill were discussing the absence of census bureau attention to the African American community.  The three things I remember were:

1) the lack of workers canvassing African American neighborhoods;

2) the lack of media attention targeting Black citizens; and

3) big data collection campaigns in other communities that are not occurring in African American communities.

Do you think the Census Bureau is ignoring the African American community?
