What do you consider COMMON last names for Black Americans?

That other thread about girls names got me thinking and here is my list of what I think are COMMON last names for Black Americans...

Smith
Williams
Jackson
Johnson
Jones
Taylor
Davis
Wilson
Robinson
Harris

Did yawl notice that 4 tennis players are represented by 3 of the last names?

What are others?

Your list is spot on. Williams and Robinson along with Harris are tops.

Washington and Harris.

My friend Tiffany says her last name, DuBois, is very common in the South.

I find my last name really common for Black Americans:

Greene

In fact, my entire name could be the same as a typical African American name

Jesse Greene

That's nothin'. I've never heard of any white people named Washington since George and Martha.

In my old junior high, pretty much the only last names black people had were Smith, Cain and Beals.

Williams, Evans, and Jones are the most common in my school. In my math class there are 11 people with the last name of Williams, though not all of them are African-American.

fuck.
