Just don't hire anyone who doesn't have an american name. Problem solved.

That's hilarious prison-patriotism coming from the guy who doesn't even capitalize "American." What even qualifies as an American name? An Irish name? You're a moron.

A name that isn't Abdul al-Malkika-al-Kaliki-alMohammad-alIslam III. That's a pretty good indication. Or Jorge Gallagos. Or Juanita.

Don't hate because you know I'm right. I may have a lot of false positives with my method but you can bet your sweet ass I don't have any false negatives. Pretty much everything that you can't not-hire for like age, disability, gender, ethnicity...are things that I don't hire for. More trouble than it's worth.

Yeah, because there's no way that Muhammad Ali, Mario Andretti, Yogi Berra, or Barack Obama could be good, wholesome American folks.

There are plenty of lands filled with homogeneous people, and maybe your reasoning would make more sense in one of them. Please, go to one of them for a long time to figure it out.

Ali- Real name was Cassius Clay.
Barack Hussein Obama- Not a good, wholesome American.
Andretti- Born in Europe.

Ali wasn't his given name, but it certainly is his "real" name. Mario Andretti wasn't born in the US, but he is certainly an American. These people are assets to America, and America would certainly be a worse place without them.

Yeah, you should look for someone with a good American name like Calvin Cantrell, right?

Idiot.

So you had to dig up a name over a decade old to find a counter-example?

No, you racist sack of shit, it was the first thing that popped up when I googled "Famous American Hacker". There is a list longer than my arm, so your theory is garbage, just like your morals.
