I recall doctors in Houston in the 1960's still asking mothers (white, black) to name their children after themselves, in gratitude for the child surviving a difficult pregnancy (and doctor's ego, perhaps). We have always loved Earl the Pearl in Houston

I am glad he is horrified by the racism. At 68, my white family did our best to help blacks overcome those obstacles. Women still have the problem. I saw Earl practice at the Oilers center on Fannin Drive; he was always nice to kids who spoke to him (I never did) because women were not supposed to be that bold in old day Texas.
