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.

"couldn't help but overhearing" most likely because for some reason at least in my area blacks talk extremely loud even during their normal conversation. The resume thing I think even if a person isn't racist if they see a resume with Tequisha or Taqwan it is going in the trash 99.9% of the time. After reading this I come across as racist but it I'm no more racist than the next guy.
