Your folks must have named you Dick that's a common Anglo name for a prick a name does make a man,a man makes a his name just like a lot of employers don't like Jewish or Italian or even German namesI don't know how to say this without offending somebody but I'm going to say it anyway. When parents give their kids names like Trayvon, Lequisha and other so called 'African' sounding names they handicap their kids for life. I worked for one company that automatically threw applications with such names in the 'round file' at the end of the desk. It may not be fair but it's a reality. Bill Cosby addressed this reality in the video titled "Come On People" available on YouTube and in his famous "Pound Cake" speech. I talked to a friend of mile that happened to be black and was able to talk him out of naming his child with a similar name. The kid graduated from a good college and has a very lucrative job today!
that's hard to pronounce.
