I agree with malcolm x because people wouldn't bwant to have a slave name instead of having their own name
I agree with Octavious that blacks wanted their own individuality. Your name sets you apart from others. Everyone is different in their own ways, and your name is one valuable aspect of your entier life.
I agree with Maiya and Octavious that blacks must not accept the last names of their masters. I say that for we need to know our true name for the whole black generation.
i strongly agree with ms.maiya mosby,that blacks can only answer there name.why? because for the fact that no-one else can take your place
I agree with Maiya and Octavious that African American wanted their own name not from their slave master. They didn't wanted to have a name that a person beat on them or mistreated them
your right I wouldn't some one elses name if it was given to me by my slave master
I agree because we wasn't using bad word to arunging with the person.Then we keep a common voice why he was talking to the white person.
I agree with Malcolm X that African Americans shouldn't accept the names of their former slaves, because accepting the name is not acknowledging where you come from and is disrespectful to your heritage. African American should always acknowledge where they come from and should never accept the name of a white just because he is white.
I couldn't agree with you more . Excepting the last name of the white man is showing that they still have some type of control, over you ,as if you were still their property. It shows that you are still inferior the white man. Our ancestors who were slaves and in bondage did not better in any sort ,because they were dehumanized. Although my name was given to me down the line,I am not ashamed .My ancestors worked hard to build america and the soil that we walk on .
I Agree with Malcolm X because he knows how the whites treated us as he wad growing up. He mention that the whites name us after them so they can know who they own. He also interjected that doing the time period they had the exact same last name. He had a confident tone doing the whole interview. I also agree with Aricka Yarbrough because she said they they shouldn't accept the last name that were giving to them by the owners.
I agree, because if they didn't name the slaves after their last name, they wouldn't know whom to own
i agree, because if they didn't name the slaves after their last name, they wouldn't know whom to own
I agree with Malcolm X that African Americans should not accept the names of their former slave masters. Everyone should be able to have their own individuality. They should not be forced to have a name from someone whom they cant stand.
I agree with Monica that the whites gave the blacks their last name because it showed that they owned them.
I agree with Maiya's response because why would whites want to give us a last names if the don't like the color of our skin
i agree with malcolm x,that blacks should not have to accept other names. i agree that they only did it out of ownership
I agree that we shouldn't accept the last names from the slave masters because if they treated every black person like trash so why would we be allowed with there last name even if they owned us. why would anyone want to change the last name of a slave if they don't even respect us enough to even ask hat was the real last names of slaves. If there was a battle between blacks and whites we would not even know who to fight against because of the last names coming from a white slave owner.
I agree with Malcom X because he has a point. If we just let the white man control what we do with our names they would try control everything else we do. in the video Malcom X constantly repeated that " the black people in america or so called Negro got their names for their four fathers slave owners."
i agree with malcolm x,that blacks should not have to accept other names. i agree that they only did it out of ownership.
I totally agree, because if slavery was not around like today we would have our own last name, by DNA history
I will agree with MalcolmX with his statement
You need to explain your answer for credit on this.
i agree because, the slave master gave my 4 fathers the last name campbell.Like malcom x stated that the slave master gave the so called american negros our last name. I honestly think malcom had a point when he implyed that elijah mamhumad was one of those men that had got his last name from a slavemaster.
I do agree with malcolm x cause they have to use own old slave master name ..
Malcolm X insisted on changing his name after the slaves I agree on that statement Because Everyone should be able to have their own name. How would they feel if the had to be named by a slave ? They has to put their selfs in other people shoes.
The names were from slave masters not slaves. But I see your point.
I agree with, Malcom X that we shouldn't keep the last name. Using same name that our great-grands got from his/her salve owner would still feel like we are just bring more salves up under his name. Every black family needs to get together and just come up with new names for everyone. No need for us to be having a name that our family's was broken down and beating for.
Good point Tre'Vacious but is this something we can feasibly do or is it just a good point? If we should do it, wouldn't it be difficult to go and change all African American's names?
I agree that all blacks must have their original last name. Because their generation were ruined by their master when they their last name from the masters.
I agree with Tre'Vacious and Joshua, Malcolm was correct by saying slaves shouldn't have to be called by what someone wanted to call them. They should be called by they're real names.
I agreed, because know one should have to deal with not being respected. If I already have a name whats the point of someone calling me what they want.
I agree with you cause how is a man of woman that did not have you give you the name they want thats crazy it should be yoru mother or father not jess any humanbeing
i agree with Aricka because she is hitting right on the point of the topic Malcom X was talking about
I agree with Maiya because she has a valid point to back up her statement.
i agree with his Shayna because, Excepting the last name of the white man is showing that they still have some type of control
It wouldn't be fair to say my name is what someone i don't know give me, my name would be a lie
i agree with famesha jones you shouldnt go by slave names you should have the name giving to you.Malcom x is a strong minded men who stands up for what he belive in and the white men gave him the name.
