As this year's Republican National Convention kicks off several of the minority speakers have already managed to trigger the left. However, it was former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley who gave a speech about her background as an Indian American that really sent them into a rage.
A group called South Asians for Biden tried to shame Haley for supposedly Americanizing her name after she claimed that the United States is not a racist country. During her speech, Haley said, "In much of the Democratic Party, it's now fashionable to say that America is racist. That is a lie. America is not a racist country."
“We faced discrimination and hardship, but my parents never gave into grievance and hate…"Haley added. "And the people of South Carolina chose me as their first minority and first female governor.”
After hearing this the group posted a now-deleted tweet calling Haley out for the alleged name change. "If America isn't racist, why did Nimrata Haley feel compelled to change her name to 'Nikki'? Maybe just the Republican Party is?" the group taunted.
But, as usual with the left, they didn't do their research before throwing out shoddy attacks. Haley's middle name is "Nikki," which is actually a common Punjabi name meaning "victory of the people; of the lord; victory."
This isn't the first time the former ambassador slayed the left for the very same reason. In 2018, Haley destroyed this narrative with a simple tweet explaining her name.
Nikki is my name on my birth certificate. I married a Haley. I was born Nimarata Nikki Randhawa and married Michael Haley.

Someone must have quickly realized the stupid mistake because the tweet was then deleted and an apology was issued.
Upon further reflection, an earlier tweet drawing attention to the name of Ambassador Nikki Haley has been removed. South Asians for Biden regrets the tone of the message. We will continue to focus on the very real issues facing South Asian voters this election.

While it is out of the ordinary for a far-leftist group to apologize, they hardly deserve any credit as they could have easily avoided the embarrassment if they would have taken the time to educate themselves.
It's just like the left to not be bothered with the truth. They would rather spew a false narrative to try and make themselves look better. Unfortunately, we can expect more of these ill-educated attacks as more minority speakers appear at the RNC.
