  1. Damn, this is funny. (Notice that they failed to include one’s race in the data) I’m assuming that American products are more white (Dodge, probably white) while the luxury brands are Blacks (Lexus, probably Black).

    ubj got a point there. i hadn’t even thought of it, but yup. blazer is prolly white. although some names might get a pass. ajax was a character in mythology long before it was a household product. now whether those parents knew that or not is another question, but when i don’t know, i tend to give the benefit of the doubt.

  3. Mocha Dad says:

    I think I’ll change my name to Dodge Hennessey Wachovia.

  4. Richard Froggatt says:

    SHA-NI-QUA

    Mom must have been copying straight from the dictionary.

  5. Give it a rest says:

    I can remember some years back when we used to hear some black folks make claims that children with these funny sounding names were all going to be marginalized in our society.
    It ironic that now I am finding many successful proferssional young blacks with names like Shaniqua and Daysean.

    The moral of the story is to never judge a book by its cover!

    Why is it that blacks people always appear to be the first to poke fun at what other black people do? You do know that many black folks in the USA are NOT that well educated and do NOT have the middle class values they we preach about were simply because they are NOT middle class! Do we condemn them for for being poor? Rather than turn your nose why dont you help out so that a poor black boy named Hennessey do not have another issue to feel self-consious about.

    I mean Jesus Christ already, these are only names! The shame is you will find many folks with the attitude that names like these are unacceptable YET they have no clue as to the orgin of their “so-called” Christian names!

  6. Give it a rest – Condolezza (Rice)? Shaquele (O’Neil)? Oparah (Winfrey)? Eldrick (Woods)?
    None are common names nor do they seem to have hindered the person’s progress. It’s not that the name is bad in itself but the self agrandizement is hilarious.
