Or..........more likely, were raping the innocent slave women, whose very bodies belonged to these men! Even more sinister a revelation is to learn you come from rapists!! This is probably why some of the family members are distancing themselves! We all want to believe only the very best about our ancestors, despite what ethnicity we are. I can only imagine to some who held their forefathers in high regard, it's emotionally diminishing to say the least, to learn either.............that he was having an explicit affair........or worse, and more likely, that he was regularly raping enslaved women and girls. How's that to have in your DNA.........pretty disturbing! So in short, this may be the reason for the lack of contact moreso than racism and a denial of African AMerican cousins. It's the "how" part!!
