It's SATIRE (and NOT): BLACK WOMEN LOSING RIGHTS TO Name Their Children Stupidly

From Essence, this is Satire


(DETROIT)- In a decision that’s expected to send shockwaves through the African-American community—and yet, give much relief to teachers everywhere—a federal judge ruled today that black women no longer have independent naming rights for their children. Too many black children—and many adults—bear names that border on not even being words, he said.
Few stepped forward to defend black women—and black women themselves seemed relieved.

“It’s so hard to keep coming up with something unique,” said Uneeqqi Jenkins, 22, an African-American mother of seven who survives on public assistance. Her children are named Daryl, Q’Antity, Uhlleejsha, Cray-Ig, Fellisittee, Tay’Sh’awn and Day’Shawndra.
Cabrera’s ruling exempted black men because so few of them are actually involved in their children’s lives.

However, it might not be a bad idea:

From Gainseville, FL:

Woodland Park gets playground

"I like the slide because it curves," said 12-year-old Idylwild Elementary School student Shitavius Showers. "I also like it because its colors are orange and blue."

Quinishia Lewis was in awe of the new playground.

And from Decatur, IL:

Three, including 15-year-old, formally charged with murder

Shitavious J. Cook, 15, was arraigned Thursday morning on his charges, punishable by up to life imprisonment.

Who the hell names their kid ShitAnything?

Satire, but unfortunately true. Take a remembrance of Black NFL heroes of 25 years ago: Dalton Hilliard, Everson Walls, Darrell Green, Ronnie Lott, Joe Morris, Leonard Marshall, Ed "Too Tall" Jones.

All tasteful names with a touch of class.

Now we have to endure "Plaxico", "DeBrickashaw", and [cough] "OchoCinco". I swear, if I see another pro-athlete named "Antwaan" I'm going to vomit!

We've been calling them "shitskins" for years, bro. They're finally catching up.

Mark: maybe that name that induces you to dish your cookies all harks back this obscure fact:

The boy's mama's brother, who was born in Puerto Rico, had a sex change operation. Now he is knows as Aunt Juan.

They decided to name the boy after his Aunt.

These things are really quite easy to explain if you make it complicated.

About Me

I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
