    I regret that W.E.B. DuBois was not more successful in his efforts.

    Almost certainly. Thomas Jefferson is a perfect example.

    • Slaves may have had unconsentual sex with their masters, but they were not raped. You cannot rape what you own. They were there to be done with as the masters saw fit. You cannot judge the past by today's standards.

    A lot of slave owners fornicated with their female slaves, the slaves became pregnant and had the slave owners' children. It explains the diversity of skin colors in African Americans today.

    I'm not sure if any of the sleeping between the slave owners and their slaves were consensual.

    often some even became concubines or wives, have you read the books of the law in the old testament. It is not like slavery suddenly started with the sugar or the cotton industry

    Many did. The earliest mixing of the races in the US colonies and later in the states occurred from masters impregnating their female slaves.
