That would be true if "black" Americans were entirely black. But as you well know a great many "back" Americans have considerable white lineage. And it wasn't strictly because of horny white farmers. In fact most of the actual mixing took off AFTER the civil war when the lack of jobs forced many women, black and white, into prostitution.
You never know where a recessive gene might pop up. Could be a big surprise. But my point was more about the mistaken notion that "recessive" somehow means "weak".

Many whites arent 100% white, in fact they have indian, afro genes as well. And for the most part it was rape, sexual harrassment, of bw by wm, what youre saying is, these bw scholars dont know what theyre talking about who've researched the matter and wrote about it. If one is to research early american history, you'll see that ww got with bm voluntarily, and bw were taken advantage of by wm its well documented, and this is the real reason your founding fathers passed the anti miscegenation laws, because they were concerned about ww and race-mixing with bm, but its was ok to do the samething in reverse. Thats why its ok to have a tv show like scandal on air, but wm prostested heavily that cherrios commercial with that ir couple where the woman was white.......Fear of the negro was not that you thought that a bm wanted a ww, but that you knew that she was saying yes, and for that reason you hated the negro, and this the reason your media goes out of its way to degrade the image of the bm. Its all based of sexual fears, recessive genes, the whole history of this country has been fear of interacial marriages, that was the reason behind jim crow.........what america do you live?

And yet, even with all that diverse DNA, white people are hated and targeted and blamed for all that ails the world. You realize that it only takes a single white person to complain about something like the infamous Cheerios ad for the entire race to once again be labeled as eternally bigoted. Your claim that it was "protested heavily by wm" is not backed up with numbers. Sure some people griped, it's their right. Do you really lose sleep over the rantings of bigots?

Are you aware that MOST white Americans are NOT racists? And that MOST white Americans don't support the "KKK"? MOST white Americans DON'T have family ties to slavery OR Jim Crow era discrimination. Even Stormfront only has about 200K members. Their movement does NOT have the support of the majority of white Americans at all.

Assuming that people are racists just because they are white, is racism too.

Why do you get so upset with me? I'm not trying to destroy any race, rather, I'm trying to save the white race.
Is that a problem for you?
Yes it is. There is only one meaningful race - the human race. And I'm wondering if you're part of it.

And from a practical point of view, the tide is against your sick pursuit. Racism is on its last legs. Future generations will laugh at jerks like you.

Back then they really did not know of genes.
.
Even with Mendel's work. But he didn't live till after America was formed. And many of those unfortunate laws had been in place for in some areas for decades.
.
And in the early part when this was a colony, intermarriages DID occur one has to remember.
.
And even after the laws were formed. There were little groups of folks who refused to listen to the laws. But instead, listened to their heart instead.

Personally, I think all of this is a foolish distraction when I consider how the Russians are making our president look like an even bigger fool than Carter did. What really sucks for Americans is that after enough international pokes in the eye we'll likely elect another loud mouthed Texas braggart to clean up the mess.
And he'll use American lives to do it. The left will gripe and whine while playing on everyone's fears of dead sons and daughters. And then another Chamberlain will be elected on popularity instead of policy.

Oceans to separate races and countries. Mountains, etc. Problem is, man got smart enough to cross the barriers.
By that ridiculous argument, the French and the Italians should be considered of different races because they have the Alps to separate them. To the best of my knowledge I know of no mountain ranges between Mongolia and Russia, though they contain people of different races.

But, racial sterilization would be a good idea. However, God has a purpose and reason for all that he does. Maybe our denying such racial unions, is what he expects us to do?
It could be a test and, many of us are failing. It's all about faith and obedience.
God doesn't exist, but if he does exist, I pretty sure he has better things to care about.

OK, I can see that. I feel the same way about people who call me a racist just because I'm white. As if ALL white people were somehow "in charge". It's easy to forget that most of the poorest people in the US are white.
And yes, I call it whining because most if it is exactly that. Can anyone really think they are showing any sense of pride when all they do is complain and blame others for their failures? I'm sure it would shock some here to know that my wife had a grandmother who was black. Which makes my children a bit mixed as well. But they LOOK white.
And that is all that matters to shallow racists who hate white people.

That's odd. I'm white, and the only people who call me racist are white racists. If a black person called me a white racist, it would hurt. If a white racist called me a black-on-white racist, I would take it as a compliment.

If you blacks just HAVE to impregnate a white woman, you best be prepared to call that kid black. Cos, we whites will not accept it as white.

If you really want to experience this it's simple. Just put your photograph on your profile. Then have the audacity to disagree with someone non-white on some issue. Eventually your white racism will be called out.

You seem to forget that just being white makes you a racist. You were born that way. You can't help it. But that doesn't matter. You're so deeply steeped in white privilege that racism against non-white people is natural for you.

It's nice that you live in some multicultural utopia where people don't care what color you are. The rest of us live in the real world.

P.S. While I don't post my photo, most Topix regulars know I'm white. There are also a number of black contributors to Topix, who make no secret of that fact. I have had many exchanges with black contributors, and I can't recall ever being accused of racism by a black Topix contributor. In fact, some of them have made the flattering mistake of assuming I am black. Also, many white racists have made that same mistake, also flattering.

I eagerly await your next straw man.

They knew enough to create the one drop rule. But heres what they didnt know:
There is only one skin color and its melanin, which is the black/black pigment that we all produce in special cells in our skin. And if you produce a little melanin, we become european white ( a form of albinism ) and if we produce alot of melanin we'll become a deep black/brown and in between of course the various shades of brown. And that goes for every people on this planet. And this is and has always been the reason why I/R is only considered a threat when the men are black period. You look at the reaction at this ir cherrios commercial vs the tv show scandal.

Thats more of a concern for whites than blacks, but thats how the media will spin this of course, a hispanic can be a member of any racial/ethnic group, after the civil rights movement, white amer, need a new group to exploit, so they let all of the immigrants come to america, from mexico. But there here to stay, now their the majority in the south west, clearly that poses a threat for white folks,...

Yes! My youngest two kiddos are carbon copies of their dad. Caucasian skin coloring with straight, blonde hair. Sadly, I have been asked on numerous occasions if they were my biological children. People judge more so on what the person looks like at first glance. Guarantee if I posted a picture of my youngest two no one would originally guess, "bi-racial."

White people just don't understand and they never will and probably don't care to understand what racism feels like. Growing up and having to deal with discrimination and ignorance from people who judge you because your skin has a darker tent. They think being called a honky, cracker, etc is hurtful, but there's no real painful history behind those words like the n word. They all just say history was so long ago, Why ya'll always playing the race card, ya'll say the n word why can't we. Honestly whites probably don't get that hurt over it because at the end of the day they are still the majority, still the face of beauty in American, and still are white privileged.
Why are any words hurtful to you? Grow up and stop being a damn victim.
