Re: Haplogroup E3a (M2)
In Response To: Re: Haplogroup E3a (M2) ()

I had to dig around to find this quote on a website about Melungeons. I remember it from my early days on the internet, when I first heard of Melungeons. This was supposedly proof that Melungeons can't be Mulattoes, etc. I remember this had me talking to myself, in disbelief.
------------Quote---------------------
Yet if we will consider a moment, we shall see that a race of mulattoes cannot exist as these Malungeons have existed. The race goes from mulattoes to quadroons, from quadroons to octoroons, and there it stops. The octoroon women bear no children, but in every cabin of the Malungeons may be found mothers and grandmothers, and very often great-grandmothers.
----------End Quote-------------------

"The Octoroon women bear no children"
.
That was the part that really got me.
Since there apparently was no term for the child of an octoroon and a white person, this was the conclusion: They don't exist. I was saying "Yes, they do! They are called "WHITE PEOPLE!"
