XenoPhoboQuotable - Rep. Betty Brown

"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. 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?” - Texas state Rep. Betty Brown, speaking to a member of the Organization Of Chinese-Americans. She refuses to apologize.
