    And the very fact that you would make that argument says a whole lot about how you think about race relations.

    I was born here. So were my parents. And theirs.  This is OUR home.

    PS. You are also ignorant about race relations beyond belief. De jure "separate but equal" may be dead but de facto continues to reign supreme in every walk of life that truly matters.  Do some research and study instead of just spouting next time, OK? A LOT of it.

    PPS.  I am not a "dude."

      Having heritage in an area has nothing to do with the argument.

      Simple fact is that names which are non standard for any given area and community are going to receive less than equal treatment.

      If you've got one of those names that unfortunate, it will hurt your career. If you name one of your children that way, shame on you for intentionally hurting your child's career.

        It's clear you're doubling down on the stupid/uneducated/uninformed, so we're done.

        You are a fine example of why even on the Left, we cannot make progress on these issues.

          really good at making convincing arguments :) Because we all know the Eric Cartman method of discussion is the most educated style.
