A black man named Shane

It has to be the funniest name for a black movie character ever. Shane Ross is the name of a young black surgeon on Grey’s Anatomy. I love the show, especially the black authority figures like chief surgeon Richard Webber. But Shane? Come on. His parents, supposedly, named him for an aging white gunslinger in a 1950s western movie. Deshawn, maybe, but Shane? Heh. Please.
