Mon, 04:48: illustratedjai: povverup: why do white people know how to pronounce every single white last name but cant... http://t.co/8Fh6SiIa9m

First off, they don't.

I dare you to find a typical WASP who can pronounce most central European names.

And second, gee, I don't suppose that they can pronounce what the original poster is calling "white last names" because THAT'S WHAT THEY'VE ENCOUNTERED MOST OF THE TIME FOR ALL THEIR LIVES?

This is an all too common form of argument. Essentially trying to attribute malice or prejudice based solely on *unfamiliarity*.
