I kid you not, 1 out of 10 crimes on the Daily News is a daquan. You're asking for jailtime for your kid if you name him daquan.

Because people can name their kids what ever they want.

I've often wondered that question, I mean first of all blacks want to be called "African-Americans" even though there is no place in the world named "Africa America". I mean come on, you're either an American or you're not! And so far as the question of this thread goes, if they were aspiring to be African-ish while there's nothing African about those names they choose.I guess it's a matter of personal freedom, exercising the rights of being an American while trying to denigrated by putting the name of another continent in front of it, a place they've never even been to... let alone the fact that they're not from there!

I haven't seen anyone say why u stinky, wet dog smelling tramps give yall brats those awful names like Becker, Wednesday, isn't dat a day of the week, or just those dumb stupid ass names yall give those kids. I know most of you all haven't experienced to musch becuz if u should know most of those names that you all are calling stupid really come from the roots of "Africa" everybody's homeland including u dogs. Most blacks refuse to use their surname, which is basically the right thing to do.
Ah!, "TheAmazingOne", resorting to name calling is surely a sign of highly intellectual person; the only thing you just showed, is that you are a more than likely a black racist. Please provide literature or some kind of other proof, that any of the aforementioned names, have or had African origins. Oh and by the by, I am Black, and proud of it.

That's really the issue. Blacks think of themselves as black - not American, and entitled because they are black without having to contribute and using the past as the excuse. What's really happening as a result is that they are being replaced by Hispanics as economically and socially desirable and no longer needed. Out there on their own along with homo's and atheists as the bedrock of the Democratic Party with no intellectual base. When the government runs out of food stamp $$$, I fear the rubber is going to meet the road.

Blacks, homo's, and Atheists that "are the bedrock of the Democratic Party" as you put it, are no worse that the racist Aryan Brotherhood, KKK members, religious nutcakes, homophobes and rich a-holes that call themselves "Republican."

Well I'll go along with AB's and KKK's that are right-wing extremists - but they are not the bedrock of the Republican Party. As for the others you mention, you characterize them as undesirable extremists simply because they are not part of the Democratic Party that no longer has a moral or intellectual foundation.

The KKK at one time had enormous political influence along with their extremist allies like the Aryans and were a threat to civilized society. Fortunately they were marginalized and defanged. Today, homo's and atheists have that kind of influence and are just as much of a threat along with angry blacks and their uncivilized behavior - and this includes the vast majority of blacks that are American descendants of slaves vis a vis foreign born mainly from the Caribbean who aren't filling up prisons and aren't looking for handouts just because they are black, and aren't causing major social and economic problems.

The party of Lincoln and Liberty was transmogrified into the party of hairy-backed swamp developers and corporate shills, faith-based economists, fundamentalist bullies with Bibles, Christians of convenience, freelance midgets of AM radio, tax cheats, nihilists in golf pants,brown shirts in pinstripes, sweatshop tycoons, just to name a few. But I have to vote GOP because the Dems will take my guns away.
I can't get unemployment insurance, but I'm armed.
I can't get food stamps, but I'm armed.
I will lose my affordable healthcare , but I'm armed.
We will surely get in a messy Middle East war. but I'm armed.
I need to stay armed so I can off myself when things get unbelievably bad.

They aren't actually true African names at all and your ignorant for believe a degree makes some one smarter than another which isn't true at all, secondly learn to spell I don't know of you've learned this but your ability to write is very important the only reason I'm not isongn all the proper grammar I should is because I'm in the bath rooting out ignorance. Back to the point though those names have nothing to do with true African culture it is well known they are "pseudo African American names" meaning because most african Americans were separated from African culture long a go they decided to create their own culture and names which they have the right to but if you ask me is a hastle and pointless because where ever I go in the work I adopt that cultures equivalent to my name to assimilate and make it easier for everyone
