    Are you black?

    Reading comprehension, it's your friend.

    So what do we have? Wallstreet headhunter, hotel manager, attorney, engineer, etc. These are hardly jobs that a 16 year old kid would use. In fact, your own article betrays you



    See what happened there? Despite his name, he was able to professionally use another and removed the affect. Hence it's not permanent, doesn't even require you to legally change your name though some have. So what can we take from this? The article is about careers. It talks about HR departments, headhunters, engineers, etc. We're not talking McDonald's employee. None of this is permanent, it can all be changed with a name change. So there's nothing there also.

    So what's the most likely answer here? Not that un-American names may suffer in the career department and you should consider the professional name you use, because we see that this just takes the knowledge that it exists and then individuals can overcome it. It's that this particular case has a name YOU don't like and you're trying to find any excuse under the sun to hold everyone to your ideals of what names should be.

    But it's not Dicatatorship of Haughty, it's America and people have freedom of choice and that extends to their kids. They can name them Sky or Moon Unit or Twist O'Lemon if they want. We don't need a preapproved list as you would subject us to. If, in the future, those individuals may encounter difficulties because of their names, they can change them or go by something else. That's it.

    So stow the thought control because thought control is well more damaging to us as a whole than some individuals with unique or crazy names.
    All that nonsense to invent some right to make your kids into social pariahs? Sorry. It doesn't exist.

    It's relevant, because you keep going on about it like you have first hand experience.

    Plus, the only thing more stupider than a black person trippin' over faux racism, is a white person trippin' over faux racism.

    Glad to see you couldn't actually address anything taken from your own source and had to resort to deflection arguments. You don't get to control people's thoughts, sorry.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Of course it was

    More better, more worser, more hotter, you get the picture. Just local coloquilisms (I probably spelled coloquilism wrong but I don't give a ****, now answer the question)

    The fact that close to 100% of Blacks vote for the Democratic Party Should tell you something.

    If it doesn't you have a problem.
    Touched a nerve I see. Yes it tells me they get to pay for Obamacare.

    I don't blame you; I would try to distance myself from racists democrats too. Deflecting is a well known democrat strategy.

    Personal responsibility, not so much.

    It's not controlling their thoughts if the effects have a measurably negative effect. Which as you refuse to admit, they do. So Ikari, do parents have a right to make their children into social pariahs? Yes or no?
