I once couldn't help overhearing a pair of black women in a restaurant making fun of "white names." They couldn't believe that white people actually thought things like "Parker" and "Dylan" were appropriate names for a child. I just thought it was hilarious. I left smiling. But I never really felt a little light-hearted joking either way was too terrible, even if some seem to think it makes you "literally Hitler." The people offended at that sort of thing are the same people who would have heart attacks if they saw all the ebil "body-shaming" on this board when we notice when fat women are fat and the like.

That said, if you're throwing out all the "black names" on resumes without giving their actual qualifications a look, that's likely not cool.
