Could you explain to me what exactly its connection to racism is? I guess it's an American thing I don't know of because all that comes to my mind is the filmmaker David Lynch

Maybe it's because despite this name's bloody and white supremacist legacy, and despite our so called "post racism" society, racists will still want to use it as a first name... duh... don't pretend racists aren't alive and well and reproducing more racists...

Why is this in a first name database if it will "never make it as a first"?
