If they cant even deal with the fraction of asian names in their country,then they should keep silent,maybe they'd appear more professional,they should be ashamed of whining such thing out loud,now they just made fools of themselves for asian countries and their governments to laugh at.

Also if they expect asian-americans to change their names just to go vote then they'd better not expect us black heads tiger eyez to go period.
We pay our taxes so dont fukking bother us ,just cash the paperz in,cut the crap and let live!

Right on! I love your sense of "high school" politics. If anything-it's way better than their sense of racism, discrimination, and plain immature insecurities.

Wow, Tieralan! You wouldn't be jumping to conclusions about Republicans, would you? Here, let me fill you in a little:

o A Republican President (Lincoln) was the person responsible for freeing the slaves - the Democrats wanted to keep them enslaved. Emancipation took place in two stages. President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, which took effect on January 1, 1863, declared the freedom of all slaves in Confederate-held territory. Three years later, slaves in Union-held areas and Northern states would become freed with the passage of the 13th Amendment on December 6, 1865.

o During Reconstruction, Republican Army General Ulysses S. Grant, while in command of the US Army, implemented Congressional plans to reoccupy the South and hold elections in 1867. This allowed blacks, members of "The Party of Lincoln", to elect candidates to represent their interests in Congress and their in local governments for the first time, giving the anti-slavery Republicans control of the Southern states.

o In 1869 and 1871, as Republican President, Grant signed bills promoting black voting rights and prosecuting leaders of the Democrat Party group Ku Klux Klan (which sought to restore white supremacy by using threats and violence, including murder, against black (and white) Republicans), namely the Fifteenth Amendment, which gave freedmen the vote, and the Ku Klux Klan Act, which empowered the president "to arrest and break up disguised night marauders."

o President Grant signed the Naturalization Act of 1870 that allowed persons of African descent to become citizens of the United States.

o The Red Shirts and White League, both founded by Democrats, conducted insurgencies in Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Louisiana, operated openly and were better organized than the Ku Klux Klan had been. They aimed to turn Republicans out of office, suppress the black vote, and disrupt elections. In response to the renewed violent outbreaks against African Americans, President Grant was the first President to sign a congressional civil rights act. The law was titled the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which entitled equal treatment in public accommodations and jury selection.

o After the disputed election of 1876, which resulted in the end of Reconstruction, White Democrats in the South regained political control of the region by conducting intimidation and violence in the elections. The Republican Party?the "party of Lincoln"?which was the party that most blacks belonged to, shrank to insignificance as black became disenfranchised. By the early 20th century, almost all elected officials in the South were Democrats. These Democrats disfranchised most blacks and many poor whites from 1890?1908 through constitutional amendments and statutes that created barriers to voter registration, and voting such as poll taxes, property qualifications and, later, complicated literacy tests. "Jim Crow" laws, such as the law that required Blacks to sit at the back of the bus. This disfranchisement and segregation were enforced for more than six decades into the 20th century. For all of this time, blacks in the South had lost their ability to elect anyone to represent their interests in Congress or local government.

o At the 1888 Republican National Convention, Douglass became the first African-American to receive a vote for President of the United States in a major party's roll call vote

o In the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80
percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes.

o In the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80
percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes.

o Martin Luther King was a Republican.

o While Pres. Truman did promulgate a requirement that the US Military be desegregated (and his Republican opponent in the election of 1948, Tom Dewey, was just as strong a proponent for that effort as any Democrat), it never actually happened until Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower actually enforced it.

o Dixiecrats (Democrat segregationists) Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton's mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. remained Democrats till their dying day. In fact, most of the Dixiecrats did not become Republicans.

So what is being racially tolerant? Is it being weak enough so that the REAL racially tolerant party (the party that doesn't place "conditions" on their "love" , such as the condition that an individual vote for that party to avoid death threats, such as happens to prominent blacks, by Democrats) is weak enough to get overpowered by the party that unconditionally supports Blacks? Boy, that's some kind of "love", Democrats!

Silent_W..., Montreal, QC, who is "they"? Americans? Texans? Conservatives? No one will know who you're talking about for sure if you are not specefic.

I've reread the article - who is whining? The article says it was Ramey Ko, a representative of the Organization of Chinese Americans that 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. Are you saying that Ko is racist for identifying a problem and how it originated? If they freely want to use a common English name on their driver's license, why wouldn't they want to use it for their voting documents.

The reason that you were unable to see this, Silent W, is because you Canadians is general, and French Canadians in particular, are blinded by anti-American bigotry. I know this. I was born and raised on the Canadian border, I lived in Canada for 7 years, and had a mother (rest her soul) who was a Canadian Citizen.

While I lived there and went out to a bar with Canadians who were unaware that I was from the US, I would note how often you Canadians would bring up the US and point out how superior Canada is to the US, how superior Canadians are compared to Americans. Yes, we Americans think the US is the greatest country in the world, too. But we don't waste time looking down our nose at Canadians or any other country, for that matter, and make bigoted statements about them.

The only reasons that Canadians know more about the US than the other way around is that 1). your school textbooks, until fairly recently, were actually American textbooks written for an American audience as, I guess, no Canadians had any initiative to write your own. I don't know why, and 2). You always spend so much time trying to convince yourselves that you are superior to Americans, you are always searching for fodder. But the motive is bigotry.

I read a couple of years ago about a school in Montreal having a day celebrating the home country of each of the students. One female American student took in something celebrating the US, and was roundly derided by the allegedly non-bigoted non-American students there. It sounds like its back to the drawing board for that school for their next tolerance day planning. You obviously need to spend more than one day a year if that's the best they can do. Bigotry is still alive and well there. Oh, that's right, you Canadians display the RIGHT TYPE of bigotry. Quality bigotry. My bad.

By t6he way, did you French-Canadians ever notice how much disdain the English Canadians have for you? "Pompous" and "Self-Important" are the words that I usually hear in your regard.

"Also if they expect asian-americans to change their names just to go vote then they'd better not expect us black heads tiger eyez to go period.
We pay our taxes so dont fukking bother us ,just cash the paperz in,cut the crap and let live!". Why would you be voting in a US election anyway? No, I don't expect you Canadian "black heads tiger eyez to go period".

Truth be known, and politics aside, I like Canada and Canadians (particularly since my mother was one), if you don't bring up the US. And, as I've learned, the people in Canada that hate the US the most are immigrants. I don't know if that's because perhaps they tried to immigrate to the US first and were denied, thus were offended by the US, or they secretly envy the prosperity of the US, and feel compelled to have to try to justify their decision to move to Canada.

But if the US is truly that racist, as those on the political left like to claim, then presumably we'd be doing ethnic minorities a favor by denying their visa requests, thus protecting them from racism.

And as for you, Byakuugan Mod, who linked to the original article, saying "This type of attitude may explain why they took such a heavy beating in the last general election.", then I guess it's you liberal's attitude that's going to cause you to take such a heavy beating this (Nov 2, 2010) general election. He who laughs last, laughs best.

I can't believe everyone just left these 3 prior posts (including Byakuugan Mod's) unrefuted for so long. Wake up out there!
