I would never give my child a ghetto a.ss name. And I'm glad my mom didn't give me one either.

Wow, so much for uniqueness....Sometimes I think parents want to name their children, un-like other names, because they feel their child is special and unique. I know the more unique the name is, the harder it will be for me to remember it. The kids eventually give each other nick names to solve the name game. It's sad to think that even names are discriminated against.

and thats my point

why should people stop naming their kids a certain name just because another group of people dont like it ??

it seems to me that the group of people that dont like something as little as a name should change not the other way around..if you say "oh black people should stop naming their child this and that and im glad my parents didnt blah blah" thats just saying its ok to throw applications in the trash because of a name and saying they are justified by doing so

whats next you dont get work because they dont like your hand writing

wow

its not that they dont like it, its that first impressions count, plenty of people are prejudiced, like i said with southern accents or "white trash" names.

its like if i hear some1s name is Ursula Byron-De' Freres i often think, over priveleged, snobbish c*nt.

its wrong but we all do it, the best thing 2 do is 2 not let that influence ur decision, but plenty of people dont do the best thing.

jai bro you've always been a real n*gga but im not with u on this post...maybe its me tho cuz i dont see how u can judge someone by there f**king name lol..theres mad cats in the hood with dumb a.ss names like that but there prolly smart as s**t and very well rounded people...but they obviously dont have the financial stability to leave the hood or wherever there living at and not giving them a chance to be a working class citizen because of a f**kin name is beyond me

Probably not. But then again, if I were an ideal hiring manager, I'd try to be as objective as possible. I'd implement a strict phone interview policy which would have tested her speech and grammatical skills. But at the end of the day, if she's qualified, I would definitely hire her.

But in reality, that doesn't happen too often with Shaquetas, Shaneekas, et cetera.
