No reason to disproof either. Obama would share your genes.<quoted text>
In school, eh?
Well, I use the term "Melungeon" in a highly speculative way. That side of the family came out of West Virginia and their diverse genetic background could have occurred many ways. Generally, I think I've heard more descriptions that would be of the Portuguese sailor variety. I suspect a certain Asian Indian or East Indies background in the family and that Portuguese sailor description seemed the only reasonable reason for something like that to exist in Appalachia.
Otherwise, we look just like your average white folk, perhaps facial traits in the family show a hint of Native American but my Irish side kind of wipes that out too. It's not anything I try to prove to anyone, anyway. Lot's of people in the Cleveland area are interracial. They really try to forget about it, I think.
