french slave names[edit]

in the french colonies, the slaves were given names meaning things like Moustache or Ladocile(Docile person), supposedly in mauritius there are people in the country, who bear some surnames differing from their nom papiers(slave names which they are known by the government as) and nom lakaz (names taken through oral history) , but not enough funds was put into that project) More information can be found from this site: http://www.mrc.org.mu/uscpa18.htmDomsta333 04:12, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

'African American'[edit]

The section on 'African American' totally misses out Caribbean descendants of African slaves and also those ex slaves who settled in Sierra Leone and Liberia. Descendants of African slaves outside of the US DO NOT tend to call themselves African American as this is a Hyphenated term that Americans tend to excel at — Preceding unsigned comment added by Funkg (talkcontribs) 22:18, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Cultural Significance[edit]

This article could be helped with a greater degree of the cultural discussion behind the term "slave name", as it represents the alienation of Africans from their (seemingly)inherited cultural heritage, and its casting off marked the first rejection of the white american cultural consciousness.TheHappiestCritic (talk) 23:22, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

suggestion[edit]

I just did a fast copy edit on the frech section, but it seems to me that it was mostly a history of slavery in the region and while it mentioned certain surnames it coiuld use some expansion and context
