Honey Boo Boo.

I didn't like my last name when I was little, now I don't care....it's German, not "overly" German, but German enough.

The problem with the video is that she is lumping intellectual, pro-blacks with hoodrats that just want to give their baby a cute name that rhymes.  All black people don't give their children "unique" names to reject Euro-centrism.  Some of them are just ignorant people who put little to no thought as to the social, psychological, or economic consequences of giving a child a name with 2 hyphens, 3 apostrophes, and 5 randomly placed accent marks.

I don't hate "ghetto" names because they're "ghetto"... I hate them because they sound ugly to my African American ears

So do the whitest of the White names (Sarah, Beth, Sue, Amy, etc...)


Ugh.. hate them all

Hey name is fine.

I don't like when Ppl disparage "ghetto" names it bothers me for some reason.
Some names are outrageous though but Alot of names Ppl consider ghetto are fine to me.
Some people just hate obviously black names. I don't mind them
Nothing wrong with Laquita
