Burma is the name the British colonialists imposed. The Myanmar authorities changed the country's name to Myanmar because they wanted a name that was less ethnocentric. Burmese are one of many ethnic groups in the country, and calling the country Myanmar reflects that.

James,We get it.You feel uncomfortable around Black people.You know, you can always go back to Nebraska or whatever square flyover state you are originally from. This is a majority Black and Latino city - we are the majority here, not you or your race and you are free to leave at any time....
It's funny how every crime that happens in Brooklyn on Labor Day gets blamed on the parade.Even funnier how the racist nimrods (like the two other commenters on this thread) use this as "proof" of their preexisting bias against Black people.
