Texas Republican to Asians: Can't You Just Change Your Names?

Brown suggested that Asian-Americans should find a way to make their names more accessible.

“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?” Brown said.

Brown later told Ko: “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?”

Seeing as her name can be Browne, Braun, Broun, etc.

The funny thing is on the phone, it's real easy to transcribe Asian names, and they're usually glad to spell them. The funny thing is people that get all huffy when you want them to spell out their version of "Kathy."

My wife is Asian. Her name is Vicky. It didn't take me very long to get use to it. :)

I firmly believe that all Texas republicans are that dense. I think it must be a requirement...

After having lived in Texas I can tell you that my experience while there is that most of the natives of that state by and large consider it to be a whole separate sovereign nation. They actually sold t-shirts that said "I'm from Texas, what country are you from?". So some of them view people's moving there as an alien invasion and treat it as such. I say this to explain, not to excuse the douchewaffleness of that Brown guy.
