Hope you're not confused.

LOL even in the UK (predominaly England) the last two PMs prior to ''Call me Dave'' were ethnic Scottish (Tony Blair & Gordon Brown) the current opposition leader is ethnic Polish. Scotland even has its own kinda government while England does not. Winston Churchill who sold out the UK in WW2 to America was half American.

England doesn't exist anymore and I am not so sure if ''true'' English people really even exist they're all an English/Irish hybird if not having distant Roman, North African, Norman, Jewish or Gypsy admixture and most do not descend from either Anglos or Saxons.

England is soft and withihn the UK it is being run by people I swear who want to eradicate the English identity.

No, they didn't get absorbed by the white population, THEY absorbed enough lower-class whites to look basically white, however like I said if you go out to the Appalachian region you can still identify them by looks. Further, they are still outcasts, the average American considers them the lowest form of white trash. They, along with pure white Appalachians, are considered the epitome of white trash in the United States, so while they have absorbed enough "white blood", they have not escaped their "outcast" status and are still looked down upon by both white and black Americans. They predominate in literally the poorest state in the entire country (West Virginia).

They were never considered African-American, because they never actually admitted to having any African ancestry, however they WERE considered "Mulatto" or "Colored" because although whites could not quite put a finger on what exactly they were, they knew they weren't white. Back in the 19th century and "Colored" meant anyone who was White/Native mixed, Black/Native Mixed, Black/White Mixed, Black, or Indian. Mulatto meant anyone who was mixed; White/Native mixed, Black/Native mixed, or Black/White mixed. Mulatto was just a mixed subset of the "Colored" category, which included all non-Whites. That is how African-Americans became so mixed, because even though there were laws against mixing with whites, EVERY SINGLE MIXED PERSON (born outside of Indian tribal land) that (however it happened) was born in the United States was almost automatically absorbed into the African-American population since Blacks were the largest "Colored" category.

However, those groups who resisted, fled, and actively sought to mix in with whites and Indians (Melungeons, Seminoles, Lumbees, etc.) and avoid blacks, are not considered African-American even though they would have been considered "Colored" and/or "Mulatto" under the One Drop Rule. Their descendents belong to certain "tri-racial isolates" and are generally regarded with the vague label of "mixed Indians" in the minds of most Americans who even know or care about such small groups in the first place. They are not very numerous.

Creoles are peculiar when it comes to tri-racial groups in the United States because they never sought to deny or run away from their African ancestry, since they evolved in a Latin American culture where such denial was unnecessary. Therefore, when the One-Drop Rule was forced on them, they eventually ended up identifying as "black", because they weren't willing to deny their African ancestry and only those who did so had any chance of forging some semblance of a "mixed" or "middle" group outside the Black/White dichotomy. Further, their culture is heavily (and directly) African, and they have contributed large amounts to African-American culture. Here are some famous Creoles:

I just see Johnny Depp and Elvis Presley possibly being the descendants of those who got absorbed by the white population later on as they're predominately white, then Native then small amounts of African.
Yeah, Depp and Elvis would basically be white people who had like some Melungeon ancestry. I should also mention that they never called themselves "Melungeons", that was a pejorative name that white Americans gave them. Like I said, they were never really a proper "ethnic group" in the way Creoles were, they were basically a rural mixed-race group who worked to procreate with the lowest class of whites as a way of social climbing. However, it did not work and the social stigma and poverty remain with them to this day.

They are very touchy about their identity, because like I said they are very poor and uneducated and are still afraid of receiving backlash for acknowledging their African ancestry. They ARE generally considered white, like I said, however regular white Americans still look down on them despite their persistent effort to whiten themselves. I cannot stress enough how these people represent the lowest trash of America.

Fact is if Bantu admixture was minute they would never mention it in these studies period just like how they never really mention Native American admixture in Black America which is truly ''minute''.

They mention the San, Mbutu, Baka, etc. which are all below 2%, so obviously minutiae has nothing to do with what they did and didn't include in the studies. They were studying the African component, that's why they didn't mention the European (20%) or Native American (7%) component. If you consider the 7% Native American "minute", then I don't see how you don't consider the 10% Bantu "minute".

Further, I showed you the definition and synonyms for minute, and I think you know what SEXYBLKWOMAN meant. 10% Bantu is "insignificant" (a synonym for minute, as I pointed out in my post) in comparison to the rest of African-Americans' ancestry, especially our overall ancestry.

I didn't see the original assertion, so I can't say anything definitively, however I believe it was something to the effect of "African Americans have are a significantly Bantu population", which I believe SEXYBLKWOMAN has disproved given that I, and most people, would not consider 10% Bantu to be very significant when examining African-Americans' entire genetic composition.

Bias on your part (SEXYBLKWOMAN is Black American like yourself). The study is from 1998 and the reference why may be from 1969 is from ''data on English trade during the 18th century'' something which was recorded in the 18th century which you even asked for thus no new study can override it. You know this is the same study which showed you the varying European admixture in Black America in another link.

Honestly if you lot want to pretend Bantu admixture is ''minute'' in Black America which is clearly not at definatley over 10% then it is up to you.

Also at the end of the day Bantus of Angola/Congo are essentially the same as West Africans anywyas thus why I lump them altogether as ''Central-West Africans''.

So you are going to argue with me about English influence in America. Everything about America from your tv shows, laws, culture, school system, politics and everything is modeled after the English. How many German and Irish has been president of America?

Again I am not the one that said when all factors are factored in the english hold the largest ethnicity of white American. I quoted them from numerous sources which I have provided. You on the other keep posting census. If we go by the census then of course German is the largest but if factored in the factors then English is the largest. It is so simple Sarah palin would not even have a hard time comprehending it.

Not to sure what you mean and it depends on the genes. Blue eyes are recessive and I think blonde hair is too.

Recessive genes means it will for the most part take you inheriting the same genes from both parents for you to express (have it shown) it.

eg Blue eyes are recessive so to have blue eyes genrally both of your parents must be blue eyed gene carries not necissarilly having blue eyes themselves though. You can have blue eyed genes but have non blue eyes.

While on the other hand dominant means only one parent needs it realy eg brown eyes. Blue eyed parent + brown eyed parent = brown eyed child but still has blue eyed genes.

So recessive genes from more than two generations ago can't really play a role. You could be the random fluke who inherits the recessive traits, it happens but its rare.

My ''half'' cousins who are white are all brown to black hair light brown eyes and two have green eyes. Two also have children one has blue eyes and blonde hair, for now I notice hair colour can change with certain white people with age.

Not that I know of. Any African-American from the Chesapeake, Southeast, or Midwest area who claims to have a "Native American" great-grandsomething could easily have "Melungeon" ancestry, however, perhaps through migrations. The region where Melungeons predominate has a very tiny African-American population and the African component to Melungeons' ancestry come from people who migrated from the Chesapeake region hundreds of years ago and married enough low-class white trash to pass themselves off as white, so African-Americans were always more isolated from what would be called "Melungeon" people than whites were.
