Listen as two members of my tribe, Jo-Ann Taveras and Amber Conage talk about how their
names have been perceived, the comments people have made and what happened when the
person expected for the interview or loan meeting, didn't match the name on paper.
Do you think companies, banks and businesses use names as a way to racially profile applicants?
When we allow this to influence something as simple as what we name our children, are
we allowing them some control? I would love to hear your thoughts.
