During the time of slavery in the United States of America, the most whole White-Americans acquired the Negro gene. Fruit of the African slaves, resulting in the transition of the first pure European settlers to the impure recent ‘White’-Americans.
This aftermath started with the process to miscegenation, between Blacks and Whites. Thus the progeny of Mulattoes.
Mulattoes were the result of miscegenation, in other words, the interbreeding of different races.
Sexual activity among Slaves and their Masters often happened in plantations. Either by force of the Masters or by the Slaves’s true will, though it wasn’t really the case.
While the Masters were able to force their Slaves into having sexual activities, the Slaves themselves were scared to submit their bodies to their Master’s command and afterwards afraid to tell anyone, because of the severe consequences.
From a slaves point of view, it was torture. It left them helpless, terrified and consequently pregnant.
As it was not an offense nor a crime, for the White male to have sexual intercourse with the Black females, it became a common practice under Colonial Law, Chattel Slavery.
“My Master, was to my knowledge, the father of eleven slaves. But did the mothers dare to tell who’s the father of their children?
Did the other slaves dare to allude to it, except in whispers among themselves?
No, indeed. They knew all too well the terrible consequences.”
The result of these actions, was the birth of a child with light brown skin.
Over times, if Mulattoes had children with Whites or other Mulattoes, the skin colour of their children would got “Whiter”.
And eventually, if this happened enough, though the children would still have Negro ancestry, they would appear to be completely White.
Frederick Douglas, a well-known abolitionist was also thought to be Mulatto.
In his autobiography “The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas, an American“, he quotes another story of miscegenation.
“My father was a White man, he was admitted to be such, by all I ever heard speak of my parentage.
The opinion was also whispered, that my master was my father but the correctness of his opinion I know nothing.
The means of meaning was withheld from me.”
Evidence suggests that on plantations there was a favoritism towards Mulattoes.
They were often preferred over Negroes as households servants or concubines, which generally, would get less work than those who work in the field.
Mulattoes were also more likely to learn a craft or a skill, which could lead them to earn money in their spare time, if their Masters allowed it. And eventually, to buy their freedom.
Records show that high proportions of emancipated slaves were Mulatto.
As time went on, more and more mixed race heritage slaves began to exist.
Some who looked completely White figured out that it was easy to escape slavery, if they had fled up North, and change their names.
Since they didn’t have their dark skin anymore, no one would know their Negro heritage, and thus couldn’t be recognized as Slaves.
This consequently, sparked many trials from which people were indicted of having Negro heritage, under the “One-Drop-Rule“.
Some White citizens were falsely accused of such, by slave owners, because they wanted more Slaves for labor, without importing their own.
Accusations like these were easy, since people tended to trust the word of a Slave owner over an accused Negro.
This first step, on the exercise of Mongrelization of America between Whites and Blacks, continued throughout the tide of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and forth, involving many generations whom produced posterity of a high degree of mtDNA Sub-Saharan ancestry, in White-Americans.
Some White slave owners who continued this common practice of Concubinage, were also of mixed ancestry. Hence, this succession of enduring changing social and political climate in American history often led to the Bastardization of the ‘European’ race in America, and other populations, such as the Indigenous peoples of the Americas.
The input of the Negro gene into the White-American gene-pool didn’t just happen between Black female slaves, and White masters.
Yet, during the late sixteen and seventeen hundreds the Negro paternal lineage was also introduced in White-Americans, when male Blacks slaves from Africa started being imported in such a high number to America, to substitute the sick poor-White slaves.
Both Black and White slaves, worked together, ate together and slept together.
“We and the Negroes both alike did fare, of work and food we had equal share”.
– James Revel.
This consequently led to race mixing, and thus, a quite common practice among Black males and White females.
In some locations of USA, about 2/3 Americans of all new born children had White mothers and Black fathers. We see the effect of this early race mixing in the Y-DNA make up of White-Americans, today. In fact, according to the Census Bureau, about 90% of all White-Americans who have roots in the south have some recent paternal Negro heritage.
This was the paternal meltdown, when male African slaves already under Anglo-Saxon names started interbreeding with the daughters of the Slave masters, and citizens alike, under secrecy.
Though it was a crime under the Anti-Miscegenation law, if often happened behind the daughter’s families’s back…as those caught in such act would be punished.
The already most formed couples, had exiled in the north to start a new life.
Up to this day White-Americans, even though mixed with the Negroes, Indigenous and Semites, classify themselves as “White”.
Either because of lack of knowledge, or shame.
This upshot is visible in the make up of the American president, Barack Obama. The first Western nation to have a Black president.
