Question and answer
Throughout U.S. history, immigrants have changed their names to disguise their ethnic origins for a variety of reasons. Do you think these changes were justified? Why or why not?
These changes were justified at the time for self-preservation. Throughout history different groups have been targeted and/or discriminated against. [ Hiding their ethnic origins at the time may have seemed the only way to further themselves and take care of their families. ]
