What is that line for you?

My biggest pet peeve is name changing: 

Piyush Jindal to Bobby Jindhal
Rafael Cruz to Ted Cruz
Carlos Estevez to Charlie Sheen

Just something about the willingness to destroy your family lineage to fit in that drives me crazy.

Piyush to Bobby doesn't seem like a big deal imo. I'm sure it gets annoying time after time when ppl aren't able to pronounce your name properly.

I always have issue with those who marry or date outside their race and become insensitive or ever racist against their own race or heritage just to appease the new love.

Only when I don't got a hot white or Asian or mixed girl, more money, credit, stuff. I want it all and no one ain't getting it for me or hooking me up so I'm stuck working in a office where I'm stressing really bad I don't got all the stuff rappers and Bill Gates has. I'm totally passed and I served and killed for the military. And I'm living like this. I just want it all that's it! I'll do anything to live like Rick Ross for a week.

assimilating is bad in the first place. selling out is basically synonymous with assimilation
integration is best. adopt some aspects of the new culture while retaining practices from your culture of origin

Black people need to gone ahead and define our names.
Maybe I should write a book and define them.
