Discrimination behind mispronouncing personal names

In this episode, Emily Marsten talks with Rachelle Valenzuela on the racism behind English speakers purposely mispronouncing or “nicknaming” people of color names. Valenzuela is a Mount Royal University student who moved to Canada from the Philippines as a child. Since moving to Canada she has dealt with a constant mispronunciation of her name, Rachelle, where many people would constantly refer to her as Rachel, even after correction.
