The vast majority of "African Americans" are lighther skinned that the real Africans and we would find that our past traces back to Ireland, England, France, Germany ect.
How do you think the women who were married to slave owners dealt with the raping of black slaves by their husbands.
Plus, since some things never changed, there were white slave owners who were bi sexual and homosexual. Must have been a nightmare to be black in America before 1865 or so.
