Northeast Ohio - hotbed of census resistance

That's according to the Plain Dealer, which says Cleveland has been labeled as HTC or hard to count. The article notes that many of the city's immigrant communities may be reluctant to answer the government's intrusive questions.

Some commenters on this article can't believe why some people wouldn't trust the government. One even went so far as to label this distrust as "extreme stupidity" and being "mean to the less fortunate". That is simply hilarious.

If this person knew anything about history, they would remember that time when the US government used the race questions from census forms to round up and imprison Japanese citizens during World War 2. That is hardly a ringing endorsement of compliance.
