Hurricanes need names like Jesse, Kobe, Louis and Tupac

  1. Aug 6, 2003 #1
    Ah, the life of politics:

    Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) had a little time on her hands and decided more hurricanes should be named after African Americans, she sees the absense of African American names as racism.

    APPARENTLY blacks don't name their children any of these names:

    Alberto
    Beryl
    Chris
    Debby
    Ernesto
    Florence
    Gordon
    Helene
    Isaac
    Joyce
    Keith
    Leslie
    Michael
    Nadine
    Oscar
    Patty
    Rafael
    Sandy
    Tony
    Valerie
    William
    etc, etc.

    This is her logic for the reason more hurricanes need names like Jesse, Kobe, Louis and Tupac. Other names such as Al, Allen, John Lee, Notorious, Puffy and Ice-Cube



    We refused to cast a negative image on the black person due to statistics; I guess black people just haven't earned their right to be on the serial killer list, wouldn't that statement burn her up

    I thought this was insane and I thought I would share it with you, what are your comments on it?
