Woman denied job because of her name sounds ghetto

All over the world, people bear names that are quite unique. In Nigeria for example, many are given names according to their ethnic groups.

A number of people also make up names for their own kids. These names often have no meaning and parents mainly give their children the name just because they like the way it sounds.

But rarely do we hear of a name being a hindrance to getting jobs or generally moving forward in life. An American woman named Hermeisha Robinson recently took to her Facebook page to reveal that she was denied a job because her employer thought her name sounded too ‘ghetto.’

MY FEELINGS ARE VERY HURT AND THEY EVEN GOT ME SECOND GUESSING MY NAME TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF MY NAME IS REALLY THAT “GHETTO” I WOULD LIKE FOR EVERYONE TO SHARE THIS POST BECAUSE DISCRIMINATION HAS TO STOP!”

This is coming after a man shared a photo of elderly female twins who he claims are 120-years-old each. It is unclear what part of the country the photo was taken.
