Years ago immigrants to America would "americanize" their names so people could pronounce and spell them, then they learned english as they knew that the new comers got the cr@ppy jobs. Today people handicap their children's job prospects by giving them names that sound like they were made with the pieces left over in a scrabble game.

Please parents, explain to me why you would give your child a names like sheniqua, dentral, or latrine or some other alleged african name when you couldn't find where your ancestors came from on a globe. The way one speaks during a job interview can say a lot about one's intelligence, but unfortunately you often don't even get an interview when your first name is not the mainstream.
