Racist Roll Call
Reading Kevin D. Williamson’s article “Racism! Squirrel!” (December 31 issue) brought back fond memories of roll call when we had a substitute teacher. As the teacher got to the “B”s, she would invariably pause, take a breath, and vainly attempt to pronounce “Brajkovich.” Her butchered version of my name would give much amusement to my classmates, as well as to myself. Little did I realize that I was the victim of subtle anti-Croatian racism. Thank you for enlightening me.
