What’s more interesting is why people are obsessed with demonizing “stereotypical” African American names. Why is Laquisha worst than any other name? Linguistically, there is no basis for that assertion. Throughout the globe, there are all sorts of names. And funny enough some of the names that have been pegged as African American can actually be traced to other countries.
The real reason why names such as Laquisha are demonized is not because of how it is spelled or sounds but because in our minds we associate the name with a negative picture of a Black woman, the “hood rat” figure. Which of course is classist and racist.
I just read a story about a girl who legally changed her name to something “whiter” (her name was Keisha) because she no longer wanted to deal with being mocked about it. Jokes like this contribute to an unnecessary environment where Black people are demonized essentially for being Black and the excuse given is their name.

^^^^TRUTH!

When young women are sexually assaulted, we question their pasts and critique their clothing choices, yet rarely ask their attackers to simply be accountable for having no self-control, and no respect for the humanity of the girls they’ve violated.

When middle school girls post half–naked photos of themselves on Instagram, we vilify and ostracize them as cheap and easy, while ignoring the dozens of young men who mindlessly vote their approval each time, who feed the insecurity, and who perpetuate each degrading act with the click of a mouse.

When high school girls get jobs at chain restaurants, which require them to expose their body parts to strangers over trays of nachos, we bemoan their lack of humility and class, yet never question the thousands of men who fill these eateries every day; many with daughters the same age as the ones they ogle.

When women embarrassingly writhe on poles for a few sweaty dollar bills, in dimly lit bars ironically called “Gentlemen’s Clubs”, we heap insults and judgement on them, yet let the many married men who pay both the dancers and the mortgage each month, come and go without blemish or critique.

Sooner or later, we need to stop letting boys be boys, and we need to challenge them to be men.

Sooner or later, we need to pull them out of their perpetual adolescence and into adulthood, and ask them to evenly carry the weight of sexual standards.

Sooner or later, we need to show our young men that the they can actually raise the moral temperature in sexual situations, not reflect them.
