I am African american and while I didn't particularly care for that blog post race didn't cross my mind, until I read one of the commenter's post which talked about race even then I didn't think it was racist. What you have said sits more wrong with me, since it seems like race was the first thing on your mind when reading it. From reading your post you assume that "lower class" or whatever people want to call them are commonly used by African american people which is way more unsettling then the original post.Dayton.19.*Hopeful* Future Mom

right on, dayken. Totally agree with you. It was the hastiness with which she jumped to conclusions that showed where her own thoughts lay.Blade, MD

It's called having an opinion, and you're just as entitled to form your own, whether it agrees with NB's or not, as Pam and Linda and anyone else on these forums are. I didn't agree with most of the things that blog said, but I certainly didn't get any racist vibe from it at all, and frankly it's a little strange that issues of racism were the first thing on your mind looking across an objective BLOG post (BLOG - therefore will likely contain personal opinion and stupid to use as 'research') on baby names. It's almost like you're deliberately looking for something to be offended by.
By all means, disagree with blogs and other peoples' opinions on here, but don't go trying to find something to be insulted by to justify it.Livia, sixteen.

Wow, I am really stunned by this reaction. There is nothing race-related about these names or my analysis of them and in fact I agree with Dayken and Blade that it's kind of racist to see this this subject as racist. I'm further surprised that no one has even mentioned what I started out saying in the blog, that these were all names that had entered the Top 1000 over the past decade, which is why names like Grace, Constance, Joy and so on were not included.Pam Satran
