Looks like you killed another thread, Hoopsnow.

I now you're doing it in a way I can't even report you to topix abuse for.

You're good, dude.

Are You a "Melungeon"?

Chances are if you're white and from Appalachia, Tennesee, Kentucky, etc., you're a Melungeon: that is, a "white" person of African-Indian ancestry.
Plecker's Infamous 1943 List

The head of Virginia&#8217;s Bureau of Vital Statistics from 1912 to 1946, Walter Ashby Plecker, believed &#8220;there is a danger of the ultimate disappearance of the white race in Virginia, and the country, and the substitution therefore of another brown skin, as has occurred in every other country where the two races have lived together.&#8221; This &#8220;mongrelization, &#8221; in Plecker&#8217;s view, caused of the downfall of several earlier civilizations. He was determined to prevent this in America, or at least in Virginia.

In January of 1943, Plecker sent a circular to all public health and county officials in Virginia, listing, county by county, the surnames of all families suspected of having African ancestry. The cover letter stated that they were &#8220;mongrels&#8221; and were now trying to register as white. The names listed in the southwestern Virginia counties included Collins, Gibson, Moore, Goins, Bunch, Freeman, Bolin, Mullins, and others described as &#8220;Chiefly Tennessee Melungeons.&#8221; You can read more inside.
Please stay tuned. I'll be supplying more Melungeon surnames shortly on my new website for you rednecks looking to find out more about your black African roots.

If you're going to allow someone else to respond for you, please use the same person. Some times your're a white trailer trash tree jumper, then you're a sophomoric ditz, next a college professor, and now you respond like the retard that you really are. Give up the fight. You're a lost cause.

Melungons: White trash, renegade Indians, and runaway slaves.
n 1946, William Gilbert, a researcher for the Library of Congress, presented the first comprehensive survey covering the phenomenon of “little races” or, as Gilbert considered them, remnant Indian groups in the eastern U.S. He estimated that there were at least 50,000 persons who were “complex mixtures in varying degrees of white, Indian, and Negro blood,” and listed, by their colloquial names, ten major tri-racial groups with several related groups. These included:

1. Brass Ankles and allied groups in South Carolina, including Red Bones, Red Legs, Turks, Marlboro Blues, and others.

2. Cajans and Creoles of Alabama and Mississippi.

3. Croatans of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

4. Guineas of West Virginia and Maryland.(Other names included “West Hill Indians,“”Cecil Indians,” and “Guinea niggers.”)

5. Issues of Amherst and Rockingham Counties, Virginia.

6. Jackson Whites of New York and New Jersey.

7. Melungeons of the Southern Appalachians.

8. Moors and Nanticokes of Delaware and New Jersey.

9. Red Bones of Louisiana.

10.Wesorts of southern Maryland.

"Most families in the Southern part of North America in some way have family roots to the Melungeons..."

The above is the first sentence in a lecture by an Melungeon expert.

So it's the real reason white trash has been detested through the ages -- because they're really black trash.

Few of these rednecks can go back more than eight generations, 10 generations at the most. But that's only 1850 when all the race-mixing in the country was coming to an end.

White trash, renegade Indians, and runaway slaves had been intermarrying for 200 years by then -- 16 generations!

That's 32 grandparents they know nothing about and all it takes is ONE to make them black if we follow the one-drop rule!

Just one Africa is all it takes.

In fact, all it takes is one mulatto, quadroon, or quintaroon.

So I ask you, how could anyone of these rednecks possibly know if an ancestor from, say, 1750 was a
quadroon?

It's impossible... except by DNA.

Moreover, recent DNA findings show at least 1/3 of America's white population has some Negro blood.

And it gets worse... much worse...

That 1/3 represents DNA samplings of all white Americans across the board as a group -- WASPs, Germans, Italians, Jews, Slovics, etc.

But when we break-out WASPs, the percentage surely jumps to 3/4 or more!

That's right!

Kunta Kinte wasn't just our story. It was the story of WhiteMan's ancestry too.

Seventy-five percent of them have a Kunta Kinte in their family tree -- a black African who if he had never been born, they would have never been born!

Contact Professor Henry Gates Jr. at Harvard University, he can set it straight for you... He's got all the info and numbers. He also has a PBS Special that's done recently, on the ancestry of famous African American celebrities.

I know Dr. Gates well. I recall the special, but not the statistics you quoted. I thank you for your response. Following-up on your "report" is going to be easier than I thought! Again, thanks!
