I wonder how much of this is generalized "unfavorable reactions," and how much of it is specific unfavorable reactions. The specific names listed don't follow through with my thought, though.

I remember that essay. Well, some of the names they listed are generally considered black names: Kareem, Tyrell, and Malcolm.

My elder daughter's name is also considered to be a black name. We're white and didn't know that although unusual in general, it's less so among African Americans.
