QUOTE OF THE DAY

“When people made fun of my name change, it was mostly white people, because Black people emphasize with wanting to change a situation. My last name, “Nelson” is really a slave name.  A hundred years ago it ment “Son of Nell” and it was white slave owners who gave it to their slaves. So why should I go by that name now? Why not do what Muhammad Ali or Malcolm X did?”
