    How do black guys end up with the name O'Neal?

    It sounds Irish, but Shaquille O'Neal, Jermain O'Neal etc I mean they're awfully tan for Ireland

    Many slaves took the surname of their owners after emancipation.

    They also took the names of families that were influential in their region, presidents, and well-known politicians.

    Marin don't be a jerkoff.

    It is because they had no surname when slaves, when they jumped the farm, they took common American surnames. Johnson, Smith, Jackson, Jones, etc.

    Most Irish-Americans did not get here until long after slavery was over. Because the Irish were of similar economic status to the blacks when they got here (many stores had signs along the lines of "Help wanted, no negroes, irish need not apply".) there were a great deal of irish-black couples.

    Most of the super anglo names are in fact "slave names" but when a black person has an Irish, Jewish, or German (sometimes) last name it often came to them the traditional way.

    Yeah, the Irish didn't own any slaves. The surnames taken there were all English and named after prominent Americans (Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, etc).

    A LOT of black people have Irish names, and they go way back. Some came over during the potato famine, since a lot of blacks were over there working. The rich stayed, the poor (farmworkers black and white) were starving and came over. This is why you see those Irish surnames on black people a lot more in the north than the south.

    really? u don't know this?

    back when a few short-coccked irish men own slaves, their wives would of course go get some real cocck out in the slave quarters....... when the black baby came, the slave master curbs Ms. O'Neal, leaving her to raise her blackass bastard kid, who of course take's his mommy's surname.......
