So what this is saying is that only Asian Americans remain sane.

Is this a joke?

This is really not a joke, as Asian students tend to take on American names. Americans tend to invent new names. And, many Black students' names are probably names you've probably never heard of.

I've met enough Asian-Americans to *know* they're the only sane Americans left.

That's true - they actually want to assimilate into American culture. Their parents give them American names.

"Cameron" ought to be deleted with increasing knowledge of Spanish...it is the Spanish word for "shrimp."

Is "Antwaine" pronounced "Aunt Wayne," or is it pronounced like "Antoine," often spelled "Antwan."

Thank goodness they give first names in the papers, otherwise it sometimes might be hard to tell the race of criminals.

Propecia is also actually not a Black name, but there are several other common Black names that sound just like it.
