Texas State Rep. Betty Brown or Betty Bigot?

File this under: Female Texas Bigot

Hat Tip to the blog, Think progress for their recent report on this post racial American side show.


On Tuesday, State Rep. Betty Brown (R) caused a firestorm during House testimony on voter identification legislation when she said that Asian-Americans should change their names because they’re too hard to pronounce:

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 [Organization of Chinese Americans representative Ramey] 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?”

Yesterday, Brown continued to resist calls to apologize. Her spokesman said that Democrats “want this to just be about race.”

The Post Racial blog publisher says: OK, Ms. Betty Brown, it would behoove you to adopt a last name the relates to your ignorance, and is readily understandable. Let's have this Small Minded lawmaker change her own name to "Betty Bigot."


  1. Hetep and Respect, This is a good example of a type of Cultural Poisoning known as Name AIDS (acquired Information Deficiency Syndrome)

    Cultural Health note: The Asian American naming convention, American or Americanized first name and retention of their ethnic last name, is an example that African Americans can learn from.

    My name Rudy Aunk is an obvious AA example. Should Africans in America retain/restore their ethnic last name?

  2. Yeah --- and get a great, creative, individual name --- like --- "Brown"?!!!!!
