Chappelle is hosting a series of socially distant stand up events in rural Ohio with some really big names.

This is absolutely worth your time. There's a real "a ha" moment in the midst of this, actually - there's more than one.
Hints: 1) the earthquake lasted 45 seconds and 2) 400 police showed up.

Doesn't make your point since Obama's first two names are regional Middle Eastern in origin.
 

Wasn't a crime, really. Just a sign of how pathetic the attempts to discredit him were. And birtherism, and the TAN SUIT! 

Cringeworthy attempts, all. But some people ate it up. Sad!

I would make the opposite claim that you are trying to make that if she kept her maiden name it would be done to game the system playing Democratic Racist Party Identity Politics.

Fail. Epic at that, especially considering all that you post here ...

But here is the real story that you missed ...

Her marriage was arranged so that she could get citizenship by marrying Haley.  This disqualifies her from ever being able to be POTUS.
 

"Her marriage was arranged so that she could get citizenship by marrying Haley. This disqualifies her from ever being able to be POTUS."


Wikipedia says nope. Or do you have super-secret info on Nikki that can only be shared on a full blue moon with Trump Faithful?

Early life and education

Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa<2> to an Indian Punjabi American Sikh family at Bamberg Country Hospital in Bamberg, South Carolina.<3><4> Her father, Ajit Singh Randhawa, and her mother, Raj Kaur Randhawa, immigrated to the United States from Amritsar District, Punjab, India.<5> Her father was formerly a professor at Punjab Agricultural University, and her mother received her law degree from the University of Delhi.<6>

Black Homeowners Face Discrimination in Appraisals
Companies that value homes for sale or refinancing are bound by law not to discriminate. Black homeowners say it happens anyway.
Abena and Alex Horton wanted to take advantage of low home-refinance rates brought on by the coronavirus crisis. So in June, they took the first step in that process, welcoming a home appraiser into their four-bedroom, four-bath ranch-style house in Jacksonville, Fla.

The Hortons live just minutes from the Ortega River, in a predominantly white neighborhood of 1950s homes that tend to sell for $350,000 to $550,000. They had expected their home to appraise for around $450,000, but the appraiser felt differently, assigning a value of $330,000. Ms. Horton, who is Black, immediately suspected discrimination.

The couple’s bank agreed that the value was off and ordered a second appraisal. But before the new appraiser could arrive, Ms. Horton, a lawyer, began an experiment: She took all family photos off the mantle. Instead, she hung up a series of oil paintings of Mr. Horton, who is white, and his grandparents that had been in storage. Books by Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison were taken off the shelves, and holiday photo cards sent by friends were edited so that only those showing white families were left on display. On the day of the appraisal, Ms. Horton took the couple’s 6-year-old son on a shopping trip to Target, and left Mr. Horton alone at home to answer the door. (...)

The History of the “Riot” Report
How government commissions became alibis for inaction.
On February 14, 1965, back from a trip to Los Angeles, and a week before he was killed in New York, Malcolm X gave a speech in Detroit. “Brothers and sisters, let me tell you, I spend my time out there in the street with people, all kind of people, listening to what they have to say,” he said. “And they’re dissatisfied, they’re disillusioned, they’re fed up, they’re getting to the point of frustration where they are beginning to feel: What do they have to lose?”

That summer, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act. In a ceremony at the Capitol Rotunda attended by Martin Luther King, Jr., Johnson invoked the arrival of enslaved Africans in Jamestown, in 1619: “They came in darkness and they came in chains. And today we strike away the last major shackles of those fierce and ancient bonds.” Five days later, Watts was swept by violence and flames, following a protest against police brutality. The authorities eventually arrested nearly four thousand people; thirty-four people died. “How is it possible, after all we’ve accomplished?” Johnson asked. “How could it be? Is the world topsy-turvy?”

Two years later, after thousands of police officers and National Guard troops blocked off fourteen square miles of Newark and nearly five thousand troops from the 82nd and the 101st Airborne were deployed to Detroit, where seven thousand people were arrested, Johnson convened a National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, chaired by Illinois’s governor, Otto Kerner, Jr., and charged it with answering three questions: “What happened? Why did it happen? What can be done to prevent it from happening again and again?” Johnson wanted to know why black people were still protesting, after Congress had finally passed landmark legislation, not only the Voting Rights Act but also the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and a raft of anti-poverty programs. Or maybe he really didn’t want to know why. When the Kerner Commission submitted its report, the President refused to acknowledge it. (...)
