Atlanta rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges has teamed up with theU.S. Census.
In a statement, Ludacris explained why he’s gotten on board with the Census, a partnership meant to encourage people to fill out their forms. Census data help direct federal dollars to various communities.
“I look at our communities now and I see many empty lots, closed clinics, dilapidated schools and an overall breakdown of social services for the poor and elderly,” he said. “Today is a day for change.”
He plans appearances in a number of cities including Dallas, New Orleans, Orlando, New York and Washington as well as Atlanta, where he’ll be pounding the pavement on April 9.
“I plan to knock on doors in various neighborhoods around this country to try and dispel any myths about the Census,” Ludacris said. “It’s important that we all stand up and be counted so we can help create potential financial opportunities for our dying communities.”
Now Luda seems like a man who enjoys his privacy in addition to his second amendment rights, so I must wonder how he would act if a temp worker acting under the authority of the United States Federal government started asking questions like he was on an interactive episode of MTV Cribs.
Is there a block on the form for “Get up out my face, you couldn’t relate, wait to take place at a similar pace so shake, shake it”?
