Most black people in America still have the last name of their ancestors slave master, therefore reparations?

White people like to say, well my family never owned slaves, and this is true. However there are many black people in the US with the last name of their ancestors former slave master. Black people don't have names like those of white people. You can do a google search, or any common black last name and you'll see not only white people, but black people also

If you have a name that is particularly black for example, you'll get results like this, mostly all black people.

    See Ignorance by James, most black people bare Johnson etc? Thats because that was their ancestors slave masters name. BTW majority of black people are located in Africa and we have our traditional names.

    Nobody needs any reparations! As a Black person, I'd rather MOVE ON from slavery and segregation. I've met nothing but cool white folks, hispanic folks, black folks, etc. Can we just forgive the past digressions and MOVE ON?

    By this point in time, I don't care about reparations anymore, it's not going tpo help anyone and is probably going to cause more divide between the two ethnic groups.
