Stories like this need to be heard. Lots of people are racism deniers and they need to be BOMBARDED with the truth.

That's right, me too.
Mom gave her the name of a "Strong Black Woman" but Mom didn't raise her to respect that fact.

Girl associated discrimination she encountered to the name Keisha but what she gonna do when they discriminate against Kylie? Stern Smile

This is the issue that I have with interracial relationships and the resulting biracial children.  Most of the time the children identify with the YT side, grow up, then go looking for a YT partner.  Each generation dilutes the blackness more and more.  Just another way to do away with us as a people.

related article - it does not focus on name changes though

http://aff.sagepub.com/content/19/1/68.full.pdf

Racial and Ethnic Identity Development in White Mothers of Biracial, Black-White Children

This article reports on a qualitative research study of the racial and ethnic identity of 11 White mothers who were married to Black (specifically African American) men and were raising biracial children. The uniqueness of these women’s lives, as Whites with an intimate knowledge of the Black experience, makes it difficult to place them within the levels described by current models of racial identity. Through their parenting of biracial children, the mothers had come to a greater sense of their own racial identity and to recognize White privilege and their own White identity. Their specific ethnic identity, as ethnic Whites, has not been passed on to their children.

Keisha is a common AA name and I don't see anything wrong with it. To each their own, it's more likely than not that the girl is suffering with racial identity.
