Shevawn and Taheerah. Immigrants? Or black separatists? Used to be that foreign sounding names called to mind the great "melting pot" culture of shared values. In this case, it just creates the image of "cooking coke". The United States is a great country for all who want to be a part of it. Cue the charges of racism, but you know I'm right.
