"During the early 1990s, usage of the baby name Alize picked up steam, but it wasn’t until 1995 that the numbers really started climbing. 1995: 143 baby girls and 30 baby boys named Alizé 1996: 282 baby girls and 44 baby boys named Alizé 1997: 274 baby girls and 53 baby boys named Alizé 1998: 311 baby girls and 44 baby boys named Alizé" WHY are we doing this to ourselves as a people? And miss me with the bs saying it's a trade wind; it was a rare name until the Alcoholic beverage became popular because it was mentioned a few times in rap songs (Tupac, Biggie, Queen Latifah, etc.) #hipettybetty #petty #pettybetty #live #website #blog #lifestyle #blackbloggers #blackblogger #blackbloggersunited #blacknames #name #names #commentary #editorial #rant #culture #ethnicnames #ethnicnameproblems #community #blackcommunity #alizae #alcohol

Artifact: My name (#necklace circa 1994) #rhea #ethnicnames #label #mispronounced #kids #the90s I remember being a young girl and counting all the times that my teachers, friends, non-blood relatives said my name wrong. Then one day, when I was 10, I exploded- I went up to my mom and my dad and demanded" how could you give me a name like this????" "No one gets it!" Which then lead to "I'm changing my name to something not #Greek like Jen- Kate! And this patch of freckles on my right arm, I want those removed!!". Today I'm super thankful for the weird name and freckle patch - and believe in the idea of growing into stuff. Thanks mom and dad :) 🙌🏻❤️

If you've been curious, here's your lesson. Tama ... think "tomahawk". Not Toh-muh, but Tom-uh. Not Tom, but Tom-uh. Tama. Both A's are pronounced similarly. It really is that easy. Hahahahaha 😆😂😆 ... I laugh now, but sometimes I be like 😬😱😣😦😡😢😖 #ethnicnames #polynesiannames #peoplefromthesun lol!!

Reposted from @reverseracismisntreal 🎄 There is no excuse for the whitewashed nicknaming of the names of people of color. #africannames #poc #peopleofcolor #ethnicnames #WhitePrivilege #Racism #SystematicOpression #Intersectionalfeminism #intersectionalfeminist #feminism #feminist #problack #melanin

pantograph : Not many people can pronounce any of the names listed though, and it's not racist if someone has difficulty with a name if anything it's shaming them for being unable to instantly learn and capitulate to the demands of easily offended people
turncoat.without.apology : Why are you derailing? I literally said whitewashed nicknames are inexcusable. If someone has difficulty pronouncing it the first couple times because it's not common, fine, but as this lady said, if we can learn to pronounce Dostoyevsky and Tchaikovsky and Rakmaninoff and other white names then WE CAN LEARN HOW TO PRONOUNCE Daeshawnda and Reqwan. Stop making excuses for lazy white entitlement. @pantograph.

redsammi : @newyorkcity_confidential nope! Just looked it up and it is associated with Spanish names. If a racist hiring manager dos the same guess what, you'd be out of a job. That's the point of this post. Racist people see ethnic sounding names and refuse to interview and hire them. Point proven. I know you want to claim to be republican and disassociate yourself from minorities when it suits you, but reality shows exactly how that party feels. They don't care about you.
redsammi : @newyorkcity_confidential and the origin of your name is Latin and Spanish.

If you don't take the time to learn how to pronounce someone's ethnic name, don't complain about their broken English. English is a hard language to learn as a secondary language and you should never make fun of someone for giving effort.
ms.brownfeminist : @emiklingensmith well I live in Artesia in California right in the middle of little India, but I wouldn't wear the bindis or their traditional clothes because I am simply not apart of that culture, it doesn't matter if it's around me. Now cultural appreciation, which I am all for, would be me learning about the culture and customs and dive into the history of the culture still staying in my lane and not wearing their clothes because again I am not apart of that culture. Now as far as being in a place of worship, unless the religion/culture requires that you wear a certain attire to even be in their religious space that would just be respecting the culture/religions rules but it's never to the extent of wearing bindis or headdresses (which are the most commonly appropriated pieces of clothing) it's usually more to the extent of covering up more, not wearing certain shoes, not wearing certain clothes. Does this make sense? If some parts still aren't clear i'd be happy to explain it in a clearer way ☺️
klingensmithle : Okay, I understand a lot better now, thank you so much!!!

BUT THEY DIDNT. only once, once in my 13 years of school life did I hear my name pronounced correctly. In kindergarten no one could pronounce it so I just went the American way "Stephanie".
