5 People Who Get Paid To Speak In Public (But Shouldn't)

I checked out when McKinley claimed having trouble pronouncing foreign names is racism. If it was 'can't pronounce and don't care' then maybe he would have had a point but he just assumed that anyone who can't doesn't care. He was as usual condescending, kind of dickish and i must say the hyper offended white guy schtick has started to wear on me.

The most valuable thing I learned from that article is that Thunderous is apparently a history professor, and am now having to violently resist sending him a bunch of messages about medieval history. Otherwise, it's McKinney doing what he does best: speaking for the subaltern because he knows what does and doesn't offend everyone else in the world.

I was a bit disappointed because if it was more specific, it could have been an interesting "here's some terrible things about people that you didn't know" article. Like if he was to point out that Motivational Speaker Jim, who preaches the negative effects of spending too much time on the computer, is currently the top-rated Starcraft II player in the world. That sort of the thing. Once I opened it, I read half the first entry, saw the weird bit about pronunciation-induced imperialism and just skimmed the rest of the first page. Swing and a miss for me.

Hahahahaha like the top rated SCII player in the world is going to be anything other than a Korean? There's a reason that non-Koreans are referred to as "foreigners" still.

I don't really have anything to say about the article. It wasn't super interesting to me.
