Some states have forward-thinking lawmakers, and some have, well...Betty Brown:

Texas Lawmaker Suggests Asians Adopt Easier Names

A North Texas legislator during House testimony on voter identification legislation said Asian-descent voters should adopt names that are “easier for Americans to deal with.”

Because people of Asian descent aren't really Americans, right?

“Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?” (Rep. Betty) Brown said.

Get out of town. For real?

How about putting some effort in to educate yourself and learn to accept and represent your full community? Betty Brown, you insult all Americans with this crap. With the election of an African-American president with decidedly non-Anglo first and last names, this is even more ridiculous.

Oi, I'm sure Betty Brown is glad I have my Dad's German last name -- no problems there, ever (riiiiight) -- and not my mom's phonetic Japanese last name.

I said it once, and I'll say it again, as it often sadly rings true -- you don't have to pass an IQ test to be [a public servant].

Yeah, it's bad enough they can't have a nice little monochromatic community in Texas, of all places!* Hell, it's bad enough all the towns and streets are in Messican. The least all them Chinese people could do is give themselves 'merican names. 'Merican, goddammit!

*I am sarcastic, and I approve of this message.
