Sucks To Be One Of You: Kenyan Mother Names Twin Sons After Barack And Mitt

We know mothers, particularly black ones, can get a little arts and crafts creative when it comes to naming their children but Millicent Owuor takes the prize today. I’m not mad that he 20-year-old from the village of Kogelo in Kenya named one of her sons, born yesterday, Barack but my heart goes out to his twin brother who got the short end of the stick by being named after the President’s republican challenger Mitt. I mean, you essentially just named your child a loser — or after one anyway.

According to The Standard, Owuor delivered her newborn boys at Siaya District Hospital, not far from where President Obama’s 90-year-old step-grandmother, Sarah Obama, grew up and still lives. That detail will no doubt instill pride in little Barry as he grows older and learns about the historic man he was named after. As for little Mitt Mitt all I can say is keep your head up homie. Maybe you’ll grow up to be filthy reach like your predecessor.

    @clove8canela:disqus it says: “not far from where President Obama’s 90-year-old step-grandmother, Sarah Obama, grew up and still lives.” (key element here: Obama’s 90-yr old step-grandmother) Please learn to read before speaking/typing. *fundamental*

    This is a terrible damn title. Sucks to be one of you. Lemme paraphrase the Bard of Avon for that a$$-a name is just a damn name. I’m sure there’s a Black guy named Hitler running around somewhere in this world.

    “Not far from where the president grew up???!” I had to read that twice. Sigh… President Obama was NOT raised, nor has he ever lived, in Kenya. Check ya facts.
