Recent genetic studies have shown that "Widespread sexual exploitation before the Civil War strongly influenced the genetic make-up of essentially all African Americans alive today."

"essentially all African Americans have some European ancestry"

"McGill researchers found that most of the European DNA among blacks today probably entered the African-American gene pool long before the Civil War, when the vast majority of blacks in the U.S. were slaves living in the South. The genetic patterns observed by the researchers suggest that, for at least a century before the Civil War, there was ongoing admixture between blacks and whites. After slavery ended, this interracial mixing dropped off steeply."

        Admittedly not being anything CLOSE to an expert on genes or DNA... Let's say that a young Black female slave was impregnated by her White Master in, say, 1680. And she gave birth to a girl. And that ... more

          African Americans have a much higher percentage of European DNA than do European Americans have African DNA, and virtually ALL African Americans have that higher percentage of European DNA. Only 3.5% ... more

              If virtually all female slaves had NOT been impregnated by white men, there would be a significant portion of African Americans today with NO European DNA. That is not the case. And, you may have... more

                  The European DNA that showed up in virtually ALL the African Americans who were tested was NOT just a trace. It was much more than a trace. On average, 24 or 25 percent. When white men impregnated... more
