OoOoOok here we go, again. To piggy back off what Raven Symone said on The View‘s topic yesterday “Are You Judged By Your Name” this video is of a couple of guys mocking the “black name”. In my opinion, you can tell they are trying to be funny with the names that are considered “ghetto” BUT as always … I asked growing up.. what exactly IS ghetto? Asking that question because “back in the day” didn’t immigrants live in the ghettos but why is it referenced among the black community the hardest? Just sad …

And to be completely real with you – don’t we all know quite a few people with at least one of these names. And for real – everyone with one of those names is NOT what society perceives as “ghetto”…

What are your thoughts? I had a few callers hit my line and one made a point that hit this topic right on that nail… What about Condoleezza Rice. Although people perceived her as a “wanna be” BUT let’s not forget her name IS Condoleezza Rice
