I searched the Web for the definition of bonquisha and it seems there is no consensus on what it means or if it's even an insult.

So I guess I'll take my fake outrage elsewhere.

"Quisha" is a satirical take on contemporary African-American naming traditions. If someone buys a car from you, why would you post a picture of them with anything other than their actual name* ?

*Offer not valid for the "Orange shiatgibbon"

Referring to a customer by anything other than their actual name is almost always a bad idea.

Here's a thought.

Stop calling people things.
Use their name, (and title if appropriate).

Kudos to the dealer for doing the right thing.

It's just a black sounding name. Like Shaneequa or Latisha. It wouldn't be racist if that were her actual name, but since it isn't, it sounds like the guy just made up a black name to make fun of her being black.

It's Lumberton, it was originally populated by remnants of indigenous tribes and other free people of color.  There has always been an undercurrent of racism in Robeson County.

I found the same thing. Apparently, it is another made-up name to insult a black female, like Shanaenae or Laqueefia. OK to use unless you're white.

I hope she takes the car back and gets a refund.

Actually, I hope she takes the car back and the dealership makes it into a big thing so they can stay in the news for hiring the idiot (who I'm sure never said a racist word until that day) and highlight their terrible customer service all in one.

Wait, you need the internet to tell you whether or not not calling someone by their name in a professional post is insulting?

The whole point of a post like that is to mock her and dehumanize her. A common thing racists do to justify their racism is to characterize other people as subhuman. One common way to do that is to deny them even so much as their name. It's not that the name they used is itself racist, it's that they went out of their way to not use her real name.

Was a 90s thing turn satirical thing for that time. There was kind of a movement of people in the African American community changing their names to something wild and out of place to many. It got mocked for some reason with comedians for a very long time for having one of those types of names. Like lashonda lateequa, quanta* etc,...back in the day you could literally just rip the syllables of those, jumble them around, and bam, a new and cool name.
Not limited to that community though. In the 60s you had the hippies naming their kids after objects, vegetables, and types or names of flowers, and they got mocked the same way. (family knew a couple of people oddly named like that).
As for racism, borderline at the time, but in today's standards yes. If you were alive during that time, the comedians used it as a reference to a mouthy African American woman by just calling her by that, even though it isn't her name.

It goes back farther than that, at least to the '70s, with some people calling every other Black guy "Tyrone" or "LaRue" or something supposedly "Black", or calling unknown Asian people some nonsensical "Asian sounding" name or Hispanics "Pedro" or "Mamacita" or some goddam thing.   As Frank Zappa once said, "Hey, people...y'know, I'm not Black, but there's a whole lotsa times I wish I could say I'm not white..."

Ratchet is an intentional misspelling of wretched, kind of like how some people use the word sloot instead of slut. They think they're being clever but they're not.

"Ratchet" has been explained to me as a corruption of wretched and implies a trashy manner of dress and/or demeanor.

You're asserting something as known and correct that is really just a guess. Ultimately, it is a misogynistic insult, although some Black women have "reclaimed" it.

When you criticize AAVE, you will always look racist. Best to bite your tongue.

That's not how racism works.

I can call myself a faggot, because I am a member of the gay community and I can reclaim that word. You cannot call me a faggot because that's homophobic.
