.....especially for you school teacher friends of mine.....
How would you pronounce this child's name?
Lee - A?? NOPE
Lay - a?? NO
Lei?? - UH-UH
This child attends a school in Detroit, MI . Her mother is
irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
You Ready for this?
It's pronounced "Ledasha"
When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the
name, she said, "de dash don't be silent."
SO, if you should happen to see something as ridiculous as
this come across your desk, please remember to pronounce the
“If dey axes you why, just tell dem dat de dash don't be silent."
(And they wonder why the whole country is falling apart...)
Racist -- maybe. Funny -- yes. Get over it.
