How to pronounce Kamala.
False pronunciation of violations
In his book of violations in his 2010 daily life, the psychologist Derald Wing Sue argues that mediocre incidents such as “bosses forget or mispronounce your name” accumulate, and so on, they are “equally disruptive and harmful” like “big, clear about racial or gender defamation and other distinctly discriminatory behaviors. ”

In the study of Rita Kohli and Daniel Solórzano on minority students across the United States, “many participants shared that the problems they encountered with their names at school caused them to be very worried, embarrassed or ‘ othering ‘ feeling.” For example, they report an event in which a vice-principal says the name of a Chinese-American before laughing at his own mistake.
I am a rather cold person and I know his own they are not the most pronounced name, like many of the immigrants ‘ names.

Goodstein explained to Carlson that the name of Harris “is pronounced” comma “-Like a punctuation mark-” La. “Comma-La. “He said,” because of the respect, for someone who will have a national ticket, the pronunciation of her name is really a minimum.
