4Real Doe


When I first saw this story, I just knew the byline would be from the south side of Chicago. A baby is born and their parents want to name the child “4Real”. Black people, you know what this feels like, when you hear certain stories, you pray that the people aren’t Black…but sometimes you just know they are. Basketball player with eight kids, Shawn Kemp-brother; Someone stung in the BALCO case under the codename “Evan Fields“, Evander Holyfield-brother; Okay, I admit it, the DC sniper threw me off, I thought that was a white boy all the way.

But to my pleasant surprise, the story is out of New Zealand, and there aren’t any brothers down there. Still I needed photographic evidence. Finally, I got this:


Thank God. I like the custom shirt little man has on though. The hospital said that you aren’t allowed to start names with numbers. I guess they saved him a little by dropping the 4, but the kid is still named Real, which means he shares names with this dude.
