It is wrong to intentionally mispronounce anyone’s name. It is just a matter of simple respect!
Many years ago when I was taking a private bus to work, I was the first passenger and was alone to chat with the driver for several minutes every day. He may have been a Black Muslim since it seemed by his way of talking about it that he might be. Be that as it may, one day, with my world saving answer at the ready, I asked, “What is the most fundamental principle by which people should get along?” His instantaneous answer was RESPECT!
My answer, whatever it was, was immediately swept away. RESPECT is the “most fundamental principle by which people should get along” and beyond that, to the limit of the beyond:
RESPECT for every thing and in every sense is the ultimate principle of LIFE!!!
I would love to say, “gop” instead of GOP, but aren’t there so many things that we might want to do, but don’t because we know they are wrong to do.
In this narrow case it is only the simplest respect to call people how they choose to call themselves and want to be called.
The shoe of this particular subject is on the other foot when Democratic is intentionally and meanly mispronounced.
We should all honor and respect RESPECT!
