Wow! How In The Hell Did Texas Representative Betty Brown Get Elected?

I am completely amazed at how many elected officials don't think before they speak. This woman can't be that clueless about how racist she sounds. And I wish people would stop making racially-based cracks about people of color and then act all surprised when they get accused of being racist.

Most people who are privileged, don't even have a clue as to just how prejudiced they speak. Said privileged affords them the ability to do that, and get defended the way this woman was.

Hmmm... Not racist, of course. That's why she has no problems with white Eastern European-American names with hardly a vowel to give you a clue on pronunciation.

For many people, their names are an integral part of their identity, calling forth a link to their cultural and/or familial heritage. I can't believe an elected official would throw such a vile insult towards her constituents.
