And if they were given such names, it would be considered racist too. What if all you heard were things like the following?

"Lakeisha is devastating the southern seaboard."

"If you lost any of your valuables to the weather, blame Lamont."

"Devon left a path of destruction in his wake."

"There are about 1200 deaths attributed to Jamal."

I don't think I'd want my name associated with destruction, death, and damage.
thats racist

but they already thin that hurricanes are caused by Bush and that "HAARP" thing in Alaska. They really think that Bush causes katrina.
