Census data isn't shared with anyone, so what fear is there exactly?
A single question makes them fear the authority vs. no fear at all?
How can sanctuary cities work as a concept if illegal immigrants always fear the authority?

I can keep asking these questions.

Lots of people fear lots of things for baseless reasons. Right now, the world is full of people who think jet contrails are the governmenet dousing them with mind control chemicals. Who think flouride in their water is a government plot to make them stupid and docile. Who thought a bunch of closed down Wal-Marts in Texas were the governments way of "secretly" setting up detention camps for when they declared Martial law. Hell, one of our biggest memes here, planet X, is based on people who were afraid a whole damned planet was secretly heading for a collision with us and it was being covered up somehow.

People are afraid of lots of stupid things, Why would immigrants (illegal or otherwise) be any different in that regard?

Compared to some of the stupid things people are afraid of, "The government might be lying about not sharing my census data with anyone" is downright mild and reasonable

I believe there are people like that. As someone coming from a country where authority is beyond reproach and can do what they will with you if they so desire, I can see why people would be suspicious of authorities in USA. However, I am of the opinion that removing that question won't let the people trust the authorities more or less.

Historical precedent: Ethnic Japanese who answered the national origin question in the 1940 census.

Historical precedent: People diagnosed as "feeble minded" by census takers in 1890.

I don't think that can fix or break the trust problem, but I think it will affect the accurate response rate.

Trump Census Citizenship Question Helps Black Americans
PJ Media

Analysis:
Not buying it, and it's a white guy saying it, but none the less interesting that such an argument exists.
I'm sure it never occurred to any of the Good Soldier Schweiks over by the Census Bureau.

Faux News wrote:Eating vegan diet promotes 'white masculinity,' sociologist argues

Scholars argue eating meat contributes to “toxic masculinity,” but one sociologist has come to a different conclusion: giving up meat promotes “white masculinity.”

North Carolina State University instructor Mari Mycek – a vegan herself – published “Meatless meals and masculinity,” a scientific article on the “intersectional understanding” of manliness and eating greens, CampusReform.org reported.

After Mycek conducted 20 in-depth interviews with self-identified vegan and vegetarian men, she concluded they “uphold gendered binaries of emotion/rationality and current ideas of middle-class, white masculinity.”

All that splendid (and quasi theological) research done by interviewing a handful of people! :mrgreen:

I think the preferred term is "Pansexual"--and yes, even pans.
