    I will say that many "black" names are stupid.

    I think it'd be a good thing if black people used more "white" names, like Kevin, Isaac, etc. I still like Marcus, Lamont, Darius, and certain other acceptable names.

    If it sounds nice, respectable, and isn't impractical then I have no problem with it.

    bolded for emphasis. and since you didn't pay for the study, you haven't a clue about anything other than the one-liner you pulled from the article. you have ZERO evidence that Lakisha and Jamal were 50% less likely to get a call back than Emily and Greg. I'm sure they picked the least ghetto sounding names to include in their summary.


    Jamal and Greg had about the same chance at getting a call back. However, Peter was twice as likely to get a call back as was Boomfuquar. therefore the overall statistics say blacks are 50% less likely to get a call back.

    without seeing the actual study, you can't make any legitimate claims about the conclusion at all.

    I have two black sons, their names are Darius and Lamar. funny thing is, until we met him, I had always thought of "Lamar" as an old white dude name. The only people I'd ever seen named Lamar was my high school basketball coach (old white dude) and the gay dude from revenge of the nerds.

    Re: The Tabooed N-Word

    ive never really said it, whenever i have its in a whisper talking about the actual word . I would say most ought to refrain from saying it, because its a hate filled word, but whatever; its a personal choice because i would just feel bad/awkward if i did say it.

    I don't like racism.

    However I take issue with white trash hillbillies and black trash, ignorant, ghetto black people.

    Let them call me an "Uncle Tom".

    It appears then didn't choose any "ridiculous" names. Thank you for your time.

    Umm..... Looking at it on an individual level is the way to view it. It does not matter to the white kid riding the school bus with majority black kids that white people are a majority in the country.

    Racism, regardless of who is the "majority" is unacceptable.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
