"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? ... Can’t you see that this is something that would make it a lot easier for you and the people who are poll workers if you could adopt a name just for identification purposes that’s easier for Americans to deal with?" Texas state Rep. Betty Brown
In her defense, according to her publicist she, "isn't racist, she just wants to improve the voter identification process." I wonder if Rep. Brown knows Texas is a Spanish name? Or that English was not the first language in her state?

p.s. the ability to displace one's own point of view is a profound Biblical virtue.
