In Response To: Re: Whites discovering African ancestry ()
Hollis.....you presented a great post and I see that you and I are on the same page, that's good! Yes, some terrible things happened in the past and that deeply saddens me BUT whether the encounter(s) that produced mixed race children was terrible or not, our mixed race ancestors are still real and, like it or not, very much a part of our lineage that cannot be swept under the rug or ignored, unless one does not want to compile a true genealogy. That's an individual preference but is certainly not mine. Many a person from a slave schedule entered the 1850 census as black then maybe the next one mulatto and then white, white, white.......that's fine, but changes nothing.
