That totally amazes me.... Its strange that your families would remain totally full blooded for 300 years until your generation....... If your wife/husband Irish/German also?
my point was that we have our ancestry traced all the way back. Of course there are different religions, races, in the mix with the last few generations and they are included in the research and on the family tree. We are proud of where we came from and of course the men carry the names through marriages . Don't twist it into something it's not. Of course we are not full blooded now. My point to the other dick head was we all came from somewhere else. He is trying to prove some point and get people's dander up.

His point and your point are totally different though...

Your point is that your name has carried with you from your ancestors which is true.. and you happen to still have your German or Irish last name, which ever happens to be the case...

His point is that the slaves that were brought here from africa, their descendants do NOT have their ancestors names. It is a very valid point to have, and I don't think he is trying to make an uproar about it. There is a huge difference between your ancestral name, and a slave name that was stripped from them when they were sold to the Americas and given a new name without their consent or control....

How would you feel if tomorrow someone came to you, said you have been sold to a man in Asia and now your name will forever be Sang Chu.. and your kids will have the Sang Last name, and so on? That is his point...

If you wanna change your name to a traditional African name like Mubuto or Kunta Kinte feel free. In fact why stop there? Repatriate yourself back to the motherland! If you hate whitey so much why do you want to live in his country?

Why would your racist mind wonder on a matter such as a name? I'm a believer that we all originated from Adam and Eve. Now that makes you and me related, I am black and if you are white, then you must be my "BROTHER OR SISTER"! so stop wondering, sibling! You spell your name "methmatician", I spell mine "Mathematician" We could be distant twins there Brother.

Wouldn't matter, because I am not too retarded to escape, like the black apparently were for the most part.

This isn't even "whitey's" country..... It belonged to the Indians before "Whitey"..... But "Whitey" came and killed everything in their way..... Which is why the blacks didn't "escape" after being sold to them..... You try to run, you die....

My ancestors came from Ireland and I'm proud of my heritage. I think the point is that there identity was taken from them and they were given their owners name. How could you be proud of that name?

Ships logs from all over the world show occupations of non African Americans being brought to America as maids, farm hands, house cleaners, etc etc. whoever started this thread likes to get a rise out if people. There are historical records showings these events. Just a prejudiced narrow minded idiot getting his/her rocks off.

The real question is why is it that 8-9 out of 10 stories about a child being raped,kidnapped tortured, etc. it is a caucasian that is the perp?...... its not the race that matters...its the individual responsible whether they are black, white, asian, etc.

That's what bigots do. They twist anything someone says or make fun of a spellcheck mistake to cover their own inadequacies!

Who wants to go around with a name like Ngombe Mbunuene and a bunch of tongue clicks?

Because they LOVED being slaves and whipped with sexual masochistic chains until they reached organism!

...either that are they knew it would be too difficult to remember names like ShaNayNayPayMae, IshIshNaNaKaBinki and LaQuishaFajita!
