The Latest "Racism" On the Right
Libs are trying to push this story
: as some sort of cause celebre
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.”
Killer lede and you can imagine the howls from the left about what an insensitive jerk Betty Brown (the legislator in question) is. But the clown hat belongs on the idiot lefties this time when you read the context:
Ko told the committee that people of Chinese, Japanese and Korean descent often have problems voting and other forms of identification because they may have a legal transliterated name and then a common English name that is used on their driver’s license on school registrations.
Okay, so now we're talking about people who have already (somehow) changed their names on their driver's licenses and on school registrations, and yet have a different legal name for voting purposes? Can you see why Betty Brown's question was not out of line or absurd? She was not telling them to change their names from out of the blue, she was telling them to change their names to what appears on their driver's licenses. A completely reasonable request.
