Both of us agree with that in principle, but for practical reasons -- my wife's maiden name is really long and contains a hyphen, meaning it doesn't fit/can't be input into certain forms etc -- she changed it. She still uses it professionally though. Yeah this is the thing that really fascinates me about this. It's like looking at a photograph of a car: it's easy to see right now the direction of travel (or at least the potential to move in that direction), but we don't know how quickly it's moving, how many turns it will take along the way, or what the final destination is. A few people have mentioned this - that while the extent of what we currently consider racist will diminish greatly, new things might end up being considered racist. It's something I'd personally like to be well ahead of - I'm not really interested in what "the line" is, I'd like to be as far away from it as possible. On a societal level, I think we should be more concerned about the actual harms caused by systemic racism, than trying to work out of it's ok to do whatever the 21st century equivalent of blackface is. But that doesn't mean that the latter isn't important on a personal level.
