PLEASE DON'T DO IT!!!

(A friend of mine sent me this and I thought it was pretty funny so I figured I'd share. Also, I'm at a business convention in Vegas and not using my laptop so I'm doing this from Blackberry. Hope the text looks ok...)


IMPORTANT MEMO FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN FAMILIES!!!

TO: ALL BLACK PEOPLE
FROM: YOU KNOW!!
RE: NAMING YOUR  KIDS
DATE: EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
 
Please don't start naming your daughters after the President… names such as: Obamanesha , Obamalisha, Obamarette, Obamalaya, Obamaria, Obamanette, Barakala, Barakella, Barakesha, Barakyah, etc.  or adding, La, Sha, Da or Ja, Rhi, as a prefix is not allowed. Don't start that mess! PLEASE!!


Also, you might be tempted to name your twins JaBarack and LaMichelle but DON'T DO IT!!! And please don't misspell Michelle Obama's name.  No Meshell, Mayshell, Maeshell, Muhshell or any of that mess.  

It is acceptable to name your sons Barack or even Obama but that is as far as you may go.  

YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY RECEIVED THE MEMO AND HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Girl, they have already started naming twins and the like after our President and First Lady here in Atlanta. And you know for sure that those variation of ethnic names (lol) have already hit the books. It's just like change, it's gonna happen!

Wahahaha!!! Now you know some fool had their baby on Jan. 20th and didn't get the memo.

I feel bad for those with very ethnic strange names. I watched a 20/20 show (or the like) where they sent resumes to different places that were identical, except for the names at the top. A VERY large % of the time, Shaniqua and like were looked over. Racist but true (according to the study).

Oh, and don't forget about SASHA (nod to Rick Warren's enunciation) and Malia! "LaShasha and Maliaqua, get that bag-o hair and come on in here, girls!"
