I 8767 m sure you 8767 re not a bad person. I 8767 m sure you actually do care, and want to help make the world a better place, I just don 8767 t think you 8767 re going about it in the right way. What 8767 s happening in the comments here and in this article is what 8767 s called 8766 internalized oppression 8767 . Divide and conquer. I mean, really. You 8767 re seriously going to tell me that it 8767 s ok to segregate people within your community into 8766 Non-ghetto 8767 and 8766 Ghetto 8767 ?
Changing her name would only teach her to conform to OTHER PEOPLE! Changing her name would do enough damage within itself.
And herein lies the problem. I, personally, do not accept that as MY reality. I mean this with the utmost respect because I am than you, but essentially you have just admitted to not interviewing/hiring qualified applicants NOT because of their credentials or education but because of their name. While I understand that you are in a system in which is unfair, it seems that you do little to nothing to curb this unfair treatment. Rather, you have become complacent within it.
If you dont want to hurt your kid don 8767 t name them 8775 I 8767 m from the projects and my mom was a single mom and we were 5 all with different daddies 8776 .
I think a lot of people a missing the point. Being ashamed of a ghetto name doesn 8767 t mean you 8767 re ashamed of being black. There 8767 s a difference between the two.
I couldn 8767 t care less about the way the name sounds. But, it 8767 s a peeve of mine when people stick those damned apostrophes on names, without understanding when and how they 8767 re used. When I see that, I think, STOOPIT! An apostrophe is supposed to serve one of two purposes: either it accents a syllable so that people understand they are to put emphasis on that part of the name when pronouncing it, or it 8767 s a placeholder for a missing letter. It 8767 s not meant to decorate the name! (Oh, put one of those little doodly-dos on it! I like that!)
This isn 8767 t about complacency, this is about reality. No where, ever, in the Bible, in the Torah, in the Koran did it EVER say that life would be fair. We have to live within the confines of society and fight against gross in justices and remember that life isn 8767 t fair. As humans we are imperfect and therefore we live in an imperfect society.
It sure didn 8767 t take you long to go from purported hood scholar to your true form: hood rat. It may take some time, but you all always reveal yourselves. Rats, indeed
Considering the field they are in yes. Again If i was dealing with important clients I wouldn 8767 t want somebody named 8775 JehMajesty 8776 in the mix sorry but thats just the truth.
All I can say is that I 8767 m black and my mom had 9 girls. Marjorie, Emily, Heather and Stephanie. So glad she did that.
