Northcountry Posted June 14, 2020 Share Posted June 14, 2020 What inference are you making about the "x" instead of a "ck"? I live way up north and know two young men of Norwegian ancestry whose first name is Jaxon. If you asked Jaxon Turner "Why "x" instead of "ck", would it be for a different reason than if you asked either of these two the same question? This is just a small example of that "institutionalized" or "inherent" racism that has been so much a part of recent discussion. Such a question seems benign but asking one person to justify the spelling of his name, but not others who have the same name, because of his physical appearance does say something about the questioner. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
