Why do black people have white last names?

My extremely racist mother in law asked me this today.
She said... "Why is it that Mexicans have Mexican last names, Italians have Italian last names, and Asians have Asian last names, no matter how many generations have elapsed and no matter where they end up migrating to? But blacks have white last names. Aren't they all from Africa? Why don't they have African last names"?
-_-
I had no idea what to say to this!! It did make me upset. I don't like hearing her talk about the race she loathes so much for whatever reason.
Anyway, what is the educated answer for this question... So I can answer it for her and throw it in her face???

the slaves were given the last names of their slave masters...pretty simple answer to a really stupid question.

The white slave owners named the slaves and that's how we got our last names.

Because when slaves were owned they were given the last name of their owners. Jackson, Washington, Etc.
