Another story forwarded by a buddy. This one doesn't really make me mad, just makes me sad that there are still people out there who think this way. Betty Brown, a state representative from Texas, thought it might be easier for Asians to vote if they adopted a name that was easier for American poll workers to deal with. In and of itself, it's not really that big of a deal. I've had many conversations with older people where harmlessly racist statements have been made and I understand they grew up in an era when Asians were not so common. I just wished a publicly elected official would have a little more sense.
