What the heck is a Da'Quan?
Maybe the brother of this guy...
Seriously though I guess socio-economic standing is far more important factor to African American children's neglect than a name. All a racist teacher has to do is look at the kid to have lower expectations.
The article tries to be logical, but is severely flawed in it's arguement, therefore, it can take its place upon the copious pile of internet rubbish.
The article takes steriotypes and accentuates them with learned jargon. "Asian sounding names" = good grades... give me a break. It is very tempting to say that Asians in general have IQs above 140, but we must remember that those that we see here in the States becoming neuro-surgeons and engineering professors are only a "handfull" of billion or so they left behind in the Orient. I'm sure if any other race had 1 Billion + people that they would have their share of geniuses.
P.S. Does anyone know what the article means by Asian sounding names?
