Re: Transitional Race-Ethnicity on census?

I've also had family members (who were obviously black) listed as white. They lived in nonstandard locations. I believe the census taker did not fill in the race column until s/he returned home, and forgot that one of the families enumerated was black, or forgot which one was black.
