im not arguing with your point on the names, my point is that the statement "white people are racist" is inherently racist..

this is so true....hate to admit it......some companys, my friend been thru this, even if your name is hard to pronounce they wont hire you.......its crazy here in the U.S.........if you dont have a connection for the job or dont know anyone in the company it will be even harder........but we shall conquer this.....im a US citizen but it sure aint my country....

no hurt feelings, just pointing out a contradiction in your logic, even still..still amazes me when race threads pop up, people want to bash it, yet half of them have racists mentalities when it comes to racism..and people wonder why its a re-occurring theme

people need to think more, talk/type less..

african-americans needs to stop giving their kids made up names

your childs full name should not be Shabuddalantay Alize Jackson

you want a more ethnic sounding name then pick a damn african or muslim name. a name that actually has meaning.
exactly alot of people are missing the point here. I would rather name my child Rashad or Amir (Muslim names) than stupid made-up names. Your name is suppose to have meaning. Dont f**k ur children up by giving them some dumbass name u just made up within 1 minute after their birth WITH NO MEANING. Even names like John and Michael have meaning but what the hell does Renekeisha mean??

3. Conquering phone interviews. Can people discriminate against you based on if you "sound black?" Absolutely. It's not about sounding "black" or "white," it is a matter of communicating clearly and articulately so that people can not linguistically profile you. How you communicate on the phone, your tone, and your ability to express yourself go a long way in selling your talents. Every company wants to hire someone who can communicate effectively. Find an honest friend, ask them to interview you or tape record yourself. Do you say "umm," or "basically" too much? If so, practice your public speaking. Try joining a local Toast Masters chapter to enhance your communication skills and to be more comfortable speaking in front of groups.

im sorry but we all know that every black man from the hood sounds uneducated.....and very unprofessional if you go to an interview saying dumb s**t what do you think is gonna happen... you do it to yourself sorry... maybe be more professional next time instead of b**ching about being black s**t is hillarious...
Yeah but there is a difference between sounding black and talkin articulately, then sounding white and talking articulately, and then just ghetto. The problem here is that even if you sound black on a phone interview and still talk properly and professionally, this can still hurt you.... At the end of the day I just say be proud of who you are, don't try to hide being black and play the game the best as you can....

I agree 199% This just proves how racist of a society we still live in today.

This thread title is misleading names like Shequina and Javon are not ethnic but stupid made up names with no meaning. Now names like Omar or Nadia are ethnic and have meanings. African American parents should just stick to giving their children biblical names instead of crap that they made up out of their a.sses. Im glad my parents weren't dumb to give me a crappy ghetto name.
