Black Names Today

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09/13/are-blacks-names-weird-or-are-you-just-racist.html

 

The article above discusses the culture of black names in todays society. It details the “overall” consensus opinion of “different” black names along social media. It talks about the reason for the start of unusual names black parents giving these cultural names to their children. It explains that black parents would give their children names such as Kiara and Trayvon in attempt to separate themselves in a cultural sense. I personally think this is a perfect example of a culture creating their own identity, which is often frowned upon in today’s society. But why is that? Should someones name predetermine what social class they occupy?
