US Considers Adding Middle Eastern-North African Category to 2020 Census

Jeff Karoub, US News, January 30, 2015

The federal government is considering allowing those of Middle Eastern and North African descent to identify as such on the next 10-year census, which could give Arab-Americans and other affected groups greater political clout and access to public funding, among other things.

The U.S. Census Bureau will test the new Middle East-North Africa (MENA) classification for possible inclusion on the 2020 census if it gets enough positive feedback about the proposed change by Sunday, when the public comment period ends.

Arab-Americans, who make up the majority of those who would be covered by the MENA classification, have previously been classified by default as white on the census, which helps determine congressional district boundaries and how billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated, among other things.

{snip}

The Census Bureau plans to test it later this year by holding focus group discussions with people who would be affected by the proposed change. Congress would still have to sign off on the proposal before the change could be added to the 2020 census.

Arabs have been coming to America in large numbers since the late 19th century and their ranks have grown in recent decades due to wars and political instability in the Middle East, with many settling in and around Detroit, New York and Los Angeles. The Census Bureau’s 2013 American Community Survey, which had a sample size of about 3 million addresses, estimated that 1.5 million people were of Arab ancestry in 2006-10.

  • Steve Sailer calls it “the flight from white.”

    And good riddance, IMHO. I don’t consider them white people anyway.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      I’ve never considered white-looking Khazars and Muslims “White”. Nor have they. All those groups are scamming AA concessions. That includes those sleazy Albanians, Persians, Chechens, Armenians, and–of course–“The Tribe”. The13th Tribe hails from the same areas as the aforementioned. They aren’t fooling anyone. Kkazars all. Too far east to be Eastern European. They are the ME in MENA.
      .

      • pcmustgo

        Half Jew on here… I know I’m not fully white, but I am 95% European, as far as I know. I know non-whites treat me like a white and I have to therefore identify with and stand up for whites because of this.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Yes and No. In the workplace, if the diversity government minders see a Sandberg or Finkelshitz, they will check the diversity box for you. The 13th tribe is wildly overrepresented in government and at government contractors for that reason. The AA concession isn’t listed–printed, but is “understood”.

        • Thank you. I wish more Jews, or even part Jews, like Tim (un)Wise would think like you. Yeah, some of us White racialists might not like Jews. But we aren’t trying to kill you, or physically harm you, and we don’t celebrate when your people are killed by Arab terrorists. When you walk down the street, do you think that the “urban yoots” really care about your Jewish background? Hell NO! You are just another “YT” to them. Welcome aboard.!

          • Juggernaut3000

            Gee, I wish I had an escape mechanism like they do. I wish I had a place to go that welcomes those with a specific DNA and allows them to settle there

            If you are White, unlike them, you will not be allowed to immigrate there.

            Enjoy the relative calm right now as it is, it’s not going to last after Whites become a hated minority surrounded by hostile non-Whites who wish to kill you, and won’t hesitate to do it.

            Look to Whites in South Africa for your fate in the U.S.

            Oh, and BTW, those hypocritical non-Whites who helped bring about the ANC rule over those “racist, hateful” Whites, fled the country when conditions became unbearable. An option not available for many SA Whites.

          • It won’t be as bad as South Africa. Blacks are not going to be the new majority. The new majority will be multiracial people like George Zimmerman. No, that is not good, but it won’t mean White genocide either. The future will be a United States of Brazil.

          • Bossman

            I watched the Brazilian version of the “Bachelor” on my smart phone. The ladies on that show looked just as white as the U.S. version but also more curvaceous and appeared in very skimpy bikinis. In other words, it was far more entertaining.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Rather than thank pcmustgo, brow-beat him. Only full Jew and half Jew have a chance at moderating clannish Jew behavior. They won’t listen to goyim. Brow-beat him to do something about it.

            Look at this long list of coincidences. When will these trees be seen as a forest?

        • propagandaoftruth

          I’ve become a fan of Ben Shapiro. He mauled that pedantic commie limey that CNN canned and is very on target regarding the “progressive” farce. Nice yarmulke.

          • Juggernaut3000

            “Nice yarmulke”

            Tells me all I need to know about him. He will never support White interests, only those his own people.

            Make no mistake about that.

          • propagandaoftruth

            Actually “Ben Shapiro” should have made the yarmulke superfluous in regard to identifying ethnicity.

            I’ve seen nobody deconstruct Marxist bullying and brainwashing better. Nor stand up to the same. He seems to truly relish destroying leftist BS.

            An orthodox Jew, he wears his yarmulke matter of factly as is his right. Pretty up front seeming. Supports Israel, not sure his opinions on US support of.

          • Juggernaut3000

            When he starts supporting and promoting the interests of Whites and speaks openly about the genocide Whites are being subjected to, let me know.

        • hastings88

          If most Jews identified with and supported Western Civilization, I’d welcome you. Unfortunately, most are leftist, and Jewish leadership is actively destroying the West from every angle.

          • Juggernaut3000

            They work in the interests of their own people, not ours; in fact, they actively work against the interests of Whites, to the point where will be a hated minority surrounded by hostile non-Whites.

            No White nation is committing suicide, the conditions of White genocide are being imposed upon us, most of it coming from Jewish leadership that runs the government, media, financial systems, Wall street and the education system.

            Until Whites realize and understand this, there is no hope for our race, Whites will go all the way to extinction believing they deserve to die because of “past bad acts.” This is what is being told to us from outside, not from within.

        • Juggernaut3000

          You have an out and edge that we don’t have. When the SHTF which it will, the economy collapses, which it will you, when we are surrounded by hostile non-Whites who wish to kill us off, which they will, you, because of a specific DNA that we Whites do not carry but you do, will be able to leave this anarchic mess behind and settle somewhere else, a place where we Whites aren’t allowed to settle.

          Will you still be White or “stand up for Whites” when doing so means certain death?

      • BulgAryan

        Armenians are White Christians. As a matter of fact, they were the first country to adopt Christianity.
        Iranians are Aryan too, Iranian MEANS Aryan.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          DNA has little to do with religion. Chechens are Muslims–the are Khazars. Israelites are Jewish–they are Khazars (13th Tribe).

          • BulgAryan

            Culture/Religion matters as well as DNA. Albanian and Bosnian Muslims are 100% White, so are most Turks and Iranians. Still wouldn’t want them mass immigrate to a future NW White homeland. Wouldn’t mind the Armenians, though!

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I know many Armenians. They are all sneaky, entitled schemers.

          • BulgAryan

            Tens of thousands of Armenians fled to Bulgaria after the Hamidian massacres in the 1890 and during the Armenian Genocide (1914-18). They have adapted well. They were all Western (Cilician) Armenians, though.

          • Juggernaut3000

            It is not the job of America to take in refugees from all over the globe. We have our own interests and our people to care for and don’t need yet another “wretched” refugee population to take advantage of our welfare system and impose their ways on ours.

            Don’t say they don’t, I live around Armenians who have moved into my neighborhood. They are at city council meetings constantly trying to divert money for their people and their people only, which they’ve gotten BTW. They also freely use Section 8, SSI, food stamps, demand their language in the schools and courts, and every other possible taxpayer-funded advantage they can, while driving BMWs and Mercedes. I see this all the time.

          • saxonsun

            I once had a Russian student who told me that her people bilk America freely and that she was ashamed of them for it. It seems the whole world is feeding off of us.

          • Juggernaut3000

            So true, as those who have been forced to live around them well know.

            They will cheat you out of money and enjoy doing it. They also take advantage of every American welfare program they possibly can while working under the table for cash.

          • hastings88

            The 13 tribe idea has been recently debunked on the basis of genetics. Ashkenazi Jews are primarily a mix of Semitic male DNA and European female DNA. So, some Jews migrated to Europe and got hold of some of our women in the Middle Ages.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Actually it’s been recently confirmed through genetics. The DNA site, 23andME[dot]com regularly lists percentage of Ashkenazi Jew as part of their service. Michael Bradley figured it out back in the early 1990’s.

            http[colon]//www[dot]michaelbradley[dot]info/books/iceman/iceman_promo[dot]html

            Maybe you’re speaking of the Sephardic group. It was also found that Arab Palestinians have a closer DNA link to Moses than do Israeli Jews. That inconvenient truth is also being rapidly buried. One collective Maalox moment for the tribe.

          • De Doc

            Ashkenazi Jews in general genetically do not share much with Central Asian Turks. Even the male, Y-haplogroup R1a1a (found commonly among Ashkenazis with Levite styled surnames) is not the same subclade of R1a, when found in Central Asian Turks. In this case it seems to be an old subclade within the Z93 group of R1a that has members in and across parts of the Near East.

            Genomic studies have shown Ashkenazi to be about half Near Eastern origin and half European origin, the latter likely due to sporadic intermarriage with native European females over the generations. Did the Khazars contribute to the DNA of European Jewry? The written history certainly would allow for it, but as to the amount as judged from current genetic studies, it seems to be minimal. It would be nice to have a DNA study of ancient Khazarian remains to help unravel this mystery.

          • propagandaoftruth

            You seem to know what you’re talking about. Any websites I can go to you recommend?

          • De Doc

            Try these references:

            1) Dienekes Anthropology Blog (studies on human DNA from early 2000s onward)
            2) Ancestral Journeys org – great tables of ancient DNA remains, including many R1a finds
            3) Phylogenetic applications of whole Y-chromosome sequences and the Near Eastern origin of Ashkenazi Levites. Nature. 2014 (free access)

          • AndrewInterrupted

            One group of genes attributed to the Ashkenazi/Caucasus are the Neanderthal genes in high proportions. I don’t know the exact gene mix that reaches the Ashkenazi equation, but high Neanderthal–the highest, is part of that sum total.

          • De Doc

            I wasn’t aware of that data. From 23andMe data, it seems that Northwest Euros have the highest Neanderthal admixture. For example my girlfriend clocks in at 3.2%, which is at 99th percentile for all Europeans (she is 100% European, mostly NW origin without any Ashkenazi DNA). It has made for some great jokes at her expense too, hehe. I’m a rather anemic 2.6% Neanderthal, which is in the mid 40s percentile.

            (Hi Andrew, how are you?) Moses? I don’t think he and the others biblical characters were real; are you saying they found his bones and have his dna?

          • AndrewInterrupted

            This is the Michael Bradley book that was part of the early research, before DNA testing really took off.

            “…His seminal 1992 book Chosen People from the Caucasus states that semitic peoples have Stone Age neanderthal genes in significant amounts…”

          • hastings88

            I recent a new study recently –conducted within the last year–that made the claims I have stated. Unfortunately, I can’t find the article!

          • propagandaoftruth

            The DNA of those Jews who assimilated into native populations are no longer in the Jewish DNA as well. It would as a result of numbers alone, be far more dispersed.

          But, they mixed with Khazars. Khazar DNA poisons Aryan DNA. Null and void.

        • Juggernaut3000

          Armenians are extremely ethno-centric and clannish. They hold themselves apart from Whites and White interests and work only for themselves, not for all Whites or even Euro Whites.

          I feel no kinship with them. There is no reason for them to be in a White homeland, they have their own homeland. It’s called Armenia.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Thank you for noticing. That has also been my observations of Armenians categorically. They behave just as the tribe does: if there’s advantage in being white, they’re white. If not, Armenian. Both sides of the fence are covered. And probably more clannish the tribe, if that’s possible. I’m most familiar with the Armenian enclave in Watertown, Mass.

            I guess one could distinguish between “White” and “Caucasian”, but I’d prefer something more akin to “Core White” and “Peripheral White”, but then I’m, not a crypto-Marxist mandarin pontificating from the Cathedral.

            What you got against the Peacock Angel, anyway?

          • AndrewInterrupted

            “Caucasian” was an intentional misnomer to blend/infiltrate western Europeans. Western Europeans do not have significant levels of DNA originating from the Khazarian Caucasus.

          • That is why I hate the term “Caucasian” for Whites. I will correct anybody who uses it-even at work. I am a White man, not a “Caucasian.”

            Before white people were in Europe, they were in the Middle East and several thousands of years before that, they were in East Africa. What separates humanity from each other is time and distance.

            An “out-of-Asia” theory has developed, but that’s besides the point. The western Europeans evolved sufficiently separately to make western civilization possible.

            White people hail from the Lower Danube – the Thracian Lands – today’s Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania and Southern Ukraine. This is where the first blue-eyed person emerged. Here we tamed the horse. Here we invented writing (tablets of Gradeshnitza and Tartaria). Here we were the first to work brass and gold ever (Varna neolithic Gold). The simple reason – Western Europe was covered by ice than.

      Another vitally important change that the Census Bureau should make is to add significantly greater restrictions to the woefully open-ended option that Hispanics have to claim a “White” identity as their own;I don’t consider the overwhelming majority of them to be White,either.

      I’m inclined to believe that abolishing the “Hispanic” category altogether and replacing it with an option for Hispanics to identify themselves solely on the basis of national origin would go a long way towards rectifying and clarifying this repulsive situation.

        They had to beg the U.S. government back then to classify them as white. Now they want to be like the Hispanics where they can be white one day and be something else the next day. Whichever is most beneficial to them.

  • dd121

    Why would they do that? Don’t they keep telling us there’s no such thing as race?

  • Anglokraut

    Good! Here’s why:
    1) By the 2020 Census, the Euro-White percentage will start to look like what WE know it to be–15% lower than the government says that it is. I think it will be a stark reality check for the parents of all those “millennials” who insist on deferring children.
    2) THEY ARE NOT EUROPEANS, AND DO NOT BELONG IN THE WEST. Can’t stress that enough.

    • Ella

      USGov focuses on more political/legal and social descriptors for classifying race than biological. I view Jewish and Arabs as Asians due to the Asian Minor geographic locations of family origins. Of course, some mixed in with Euro-whites making them more “Europeanized” over the centuries like Turks and Ashkenazim (prehistoric Europeans).

    • The Dude

      It’s very unlikely that we’d drop by 15%. I don’t think Middle Easterners and North Africans even reach 3% in America.

      However, I agree that millennials need a good slap in the face regarding their hedonistic infertile ways.

  • Truthseeker

    If this helps Whites become more racially-aware, I’ll take it.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    Merging MENA into the White category is a statistical scam that has been thoroughly exposed. They decided then it was no use trying to continue to hide it. It was done for the purpose of masking the damage to the founding demographic. Furthermore, now that Europeans are the minority, they can no longer fight back politically, so there’s no reason left to hide the statistical subterfuge. Watch the 2020 “White” number drop from 62% to 55%. Then when they stop counting Mestizo gangsters as “White” it will drop to 49%. Voila! The European-American minority status that we knew was always there–and with no numbers left to fight back. South Africa, part deux.

    You’ll just move the goal posts? Upstanding folks like you would do a thing like that? Nooooooo??

    • pcmustgo

      by MENA do you mean Jews too? Sorry, there aren’t that many Jews in America… 2% tops real Jews, + now a lot of Half Jew offspring, so that makes it another 2%. Jewish women are now inter-marrying/marrying out MORE than Jewish men. So much for undesirable Jewish women and trendy Jewish “they make the best husbands” men.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Add 2% to the many other combinations and it’s a big number.

        • Ella

          It is too expensive to be White anymore since we’re the political scape-goat. Oddly, Whites are the new victims.

  • pcmustgo

    I say do it… but also bring back the White ethnicities to the form- I want to be able to check off german, italian, jewish, irish, polish, russian, etc. I feel insulted they removed those and we’re just “Non-Hispanic Whites” now.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      And what of those with the Khazarian taint?

  • Luca

    Oh my, I smell a new category of protected class, under-served minorities in the making who will no doubt need more tax dollars in exchange for Democratic votes.

  • WoodyBBad

    If we take the Arabs out of the mix, what percentage of the population remains white? Did we just lose majority status, which will allow us to assemble as a race like minorities do, without being called racist? Can we be equal?

    • The Dude

      Nah, they’re 2% of the population. My guess is we’d be around 59%.

    • propagandaoftruth

      I wonder how they will self identify. Descendants of old Lebanese and such who have intermarried with White Europeans, many non-Muslims, might self ID as white.

      I would think the Muslims would mostly self identify as non-White.

  • benvad

    A new grievance group.

  • MekongDelta69

    How about a category called “Sensible Caucasians Who Haven’t Lost Their Minds”?

  • For once, I agree with the “progressive” viewpoint. It was always absurd to classify Middle Easterners and North Africans as “White.”

    • John Smith

      Berbers could be classified as “white,” but finding some with little Arab or even sub-Saharan African admixture will take some doing. The natives of the Canaries might be the only ones.

  • Pelayo

    Good first step. But we still have Indians being counted as whites.

    • The Dude

      You mean Asian Indians or American Indians?

    • DougDeGrave

      Cherokee, or Slurpee?

      • Pelayo

        Slurpee.

  • Ella

    When US has only 35% Whites remaining, will they still pay the bill for everyone’s political clout?

    • LHathaway

      If this works, and they buy into it, the percentage of Americans considered White will drop.

  • Rustler

    This would be great. Having “Middle-Eastern” people counted separately from “white” people would inevitably raise the issue of Jewish overrepresentation among “white” elites, even if the new system classed Jews with whites.

    • John Smith

      Jews belong in the same category, since they are closely related to Arabs.

      • Rustler

        Jews will be very concerned about anything that might cause ordinary white Americans to realize that they are so wildly overrepresented among the elites. My guess is that Jews will work hard to not allow this to happen.

  • Evette Coutier

    I have a category for them. Uncivil butt holes, or two steps above blacks.

  • Dwight

    No way these people should have been labled as “white.”
    .

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Nor should these greaseritos be labeled as “white”.
      .

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Of course, it was politically correct enough to capture the one actual “white” guy on the list, Joseph Krueger.

        • The Dude

          He does look like a lowlife though. But if you read what they’re wanted for, he’s the least serious of all offenders.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        The “people” that I unfortunately call my “neighbors” look just like the perps in those mugshots.

        🙁

      • The Dude

        I only see two white guys. The rest are distinctly Hispanic.

        Funny thing is that the one they identified as “American Indian” looks whiter than all of these Hispanics.

    • Sick of it

      I could care less what a guy’s background is…if he has a nose like that, he isn’t white. Or the entire population of India might be considered white.

  • Alucard_the_last

    Good. They can add them to the crime stat’s too instead of lumping them with whites as the government does with Hispanics.

  • I think this is a great idea, because deep down inside, calling those moderating moderated moderates “white” bothers me quite a bit. If I don’t get to really be white, they certainly shouldn’t.

  • SentryattheGate

    ….’helps determine congressional district boundaries and how billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated, among other things.’ That is the problem—ETHNIC POLITICS! Allowing Middle Easterners to have their separate category, knowing their numbers, getting gerrymandered districts, federal funding, etc. It brings them more power and clout to use against YT!

  • hastings88

    They should not be counted as white.

  • lib1

    We currently stand at 62.6% of the population. I don’t know the number of Middle Eastern Americans, but if given minority status, our stats would drop below 60%. I’ve said before that the South and West are a lost cause. White enclaves are prevalent in the Midwest region.

  • rightrightright

    Does this mean that the crime statistics will henceforth reveal the true, minute percentage of crimes per annum actually perpetrated by proper (ie European) Whites?

  • Juggernaut3000

    They don’t want to be lumped in with Whites.

    That would mean they couldn’t form political advocacy groups that work in their (and ONLY their) ethnic interests, as is denied to Whites.

    By separating from Whites, they will become one more victim group oppressed by Whites, eligible for endless perks, benefits and advantages from the U.S. government not the least of which is preferences in college admissions and scholarships and an AA edge over Whites in the business and job market.

    Instead of paying into the system, they’ll be a beneficiary of the system.

  • The Dude

    I know they want to this for their own ethnic interests, as most of them see themselves as distinct from European-Americans, which they are. But it’s overall a good thing. At least in the next censuses, when we read “Non-Hispanic whites”, we’ll know that only real whites are counted in.

  • De Doc

    Another ethnic subgroup for the hog trough I’m guessing. I wonder how long this feeding frenzy continues, as White Euro Americans diminish in number along with their disproportionate payments into a system that supports these leeches?

    • Rustler

      What will happen in the future is that more groups, like Southern and Eastern Europeans, will ask to not be considered white.

      Why would anyone want to be part of a group that is discriminated against and doesn’t even have a shred of internal solidarity or any cultural identity apart from McDonalds and Coca-Cola?
