A famous advice columnist is telling people to whitewash their kid's names if they want to be accepted. How should I tell her that's wrong and racist?

Wow. @dearabby that is a very racist suggestion. Very sad that your solution to bullying is erasing ones heritage rather than you taking responsibility for your own people’s systemic white supremacy that creates and perpetuates racist oppressive narratives.

So many brown people actually do this though. “What about __ as a name?” And they’ll respond with “no I don’t want them to have a hard time at school. I want a name that works for both cultures.”
