The study's methodology left out the names of immigrant kids, who get the "disadvantage" of coming from different cultures and having to learn English on top of their woefully non-WASP names. As long as we're trading in stereotypes, how would these nimrods explain the "industrious immigrant"? And did they control for any other factors thought to contribute to delinquency? Gah, this is stupid.
So, you know, speaking as someone with a "foreign" name that people have mispronounced most of my life...shut up, dude. No, really.
