And what if DeShawn had changed his name to Jake or Connor: would his situation improve? HereБЂ™s a guess: anybody who bothers to change his name in the name of economic success isБЂ”like the high-school freshmen in Chicago who entered the school-choice lotteryБЂ”at least highly motivated, and motivation is probably a stronger indicator of success than, well, a name. Just as the ECLS data answered questions about parenting that went well beyond the black-white test gap, the California names data tell a lot of stories in addition to the one about distinctively black names. Broadly speaking, the data tell us how parents see themselvesБЂ”and, more significantly, what kind of expectations they have for their children. HereБЂ™s a question to begin with: where does a name come from, anyway? Not, that is, the actual source of the nameБЂ”that much is usually obvious: thereБЂ™s the Bible, thereБЂ™s the huge cluster of traditional English and Germanic and Italian and French names, there are princess names and hippie names, nostalgic names and place names
Kurdish-БЂ‹like, the Hmong have never really belonged to any of the countries in which they live. They remain some of the worldБЂ™s most spectacularly independent people-nomads, storytellers, warriors, natural-БЂ‹born anticonformists, and a terrible bane to any nation that has ever tried to control them. To understand the unlikelihood of the HmongБЂ™s continued existence on this planet you have to imagine what it would be like if, for instance, the Mohawk were still living in upstate New York exactly as they had for centuries, dressing in traditional clothing, speaking their own language, and absolutely refusing to assimilate. Stumbling on a Hmong village like this one, then, in the early years of the twenty-БЂ‹first century is an anachronistic wonder. Their culture provides a vanishingly rare window into an older version of the human experience. All of which is to say, if you want to know what your family was like four thousand years ago, they were probably something like the Hmong. БЂњHey, Mai,БЂ« I said. БЂњWould you like to be my translator today?БЂ« БЂњWhy?БЂ« she asked
