Re: One Who Crossed "The Line"
In Response To: One Who Crossed "The Line" ()

Racial mixing goes back to the slave ports in West Africa and beyond. Remember DNA has proves that all mankind originated in Africa.

I have family members that have "crossed" the color line. There are some of them that want to keep their "secret" hidden.

Miscegenation was a "serious situation" throughout the Colonial and Antebellum periods. Most states had "Anti-miscegenation" laws.

Most African Americans to a degree acknowledge their multi-racial/ethnic backgrounds, however most other racial/ethnic groups do not openly acknowledge their African ancestry.

You can't escape "DNA". A person living as white may have an offspring that exhibits those beautiful African features--Cooper skin, curly hair, full lips and the list goes on.

Peace and Blessings,
