Racial Diversity

What came first Vu or the LG Vu?

The word "VU" is officially in the English vernacular now.

This is purely unscientific, and relates only to me. But I like to determine how racially diverse a region is based on how many, “uh, what?”s it takes to actually say my name.

Eastside San Jose, Inland Orange County, NYC:

“My name’s Vu”
“K”

Westside San Jose, Coastal Orange County, DC:

“My names Vu”
“Who?”
“Vu”
“Oh, Vu”

Southside San Jose, LA, Boston:

“My name’s Vu”
“Who?”
“Vu”
“Doo?”
“No. Vu, V-U”
“Ok. Thanks Vu”

Willow Glen, Malibu, Martha’s Vineyard:

“My name’s Vu”
“Who?”
“Vu”
“Doo?”
“No. Vu, V-U”
“View?”
“No! Vu! Like Deja Vu”
“I’m sorry, I don’t speak French”
“Forget it. Call me Reuben”

True stories. I wish I was joking.
