in the hood, they're called Keishas
I don't mean to interrupt the witty reparte, but I'm still a little befuddled by the central question here: How do we assess the "blackness" of a name?
if the derivative "isha" is in the name ie. Keisha, Aisha, Wanisha, or "anda" ie. Jolanda, Rowanda
How about Rick James, *****!
Go to a traditionally black neighborhood and yell out the name if more than 3 people answer you, then you got a "black name"
Sheila Jackson-Lee was the one who, while observing the debut of the Mars Pathfinder with other members of Congress at NASA in 1996, inquired to know if it were possible to steer it to where we planted the American flag on the surface of the Red Planet.
When you consider this tidbit, it better explains her hand-wringing over "Ghetto-fabulous" names of hurricanes.
What about native American Hurricane names?
Hurricane Many Waters sounds good...
How Bout Haiku Hurricanes?
From afar, the wind blew........
At extremely high velocities the **** flew............
Over the hill came Wanda-lu.........
the white hurricane is a-coming!
I think she is way off base here. Ok, she feels the black community is left out. Well, maybe they should be. The last time I checked, hurricanes have the ability to cause mass destruction, death, etc. No one says remember that lovely "Hurricane Katrina "
So a Hurricane Tyrone thrashes the U.S. and is the most deadliest hurricane in 2012. Will that make her proud?
She should not want any part of this. Tax dollars clearly not at work.
Ugh, how stupid.
This is what she is spending time on? I think Hurricane's should get Japanese names.....since we all know Japan has a Hurricane machine they use every year.
Hurricane Yoshi is coming for you!
wheat, this is just silly. you'll have all kinda of anime names running around in no time. hurricane peekachoo? NO ONE WOULD LEAVE!
now if we named them after bad 80s bands...
hurricane dexeys midnight runners...now that would be interesting.
Hurricane Ziggy Stardust doesn't sound too threatening either.
There are some good ones though, like Hurricane Whitesnake. That's something that you want to get the hell away from.
Hey, wait a minute now.
would you prefer "hurricane our house"?
Yeah. I can live with that much more gooder.
how about "hurricane bow wow wow"
Sure, I'm good with that. But I like these guys.
