    this woman looks 100 percent african american

    i mean AFRICAN AMERICAN with an amount of european blood and roots

    i have read a book about african americans and their relationship with landlords and their bosses in the 1800s.

    At that time mostly african american women were raped by white man. But also white women were raped by white men.
    And on the other hand there were more secret affairs and relationships between african americans and their bosses and landlords.

    the same thing happened in indonesia with the dutch.

    I knew a man from alabama who told me that they had black maids in the 40s and that his father had an affair with one of those maids. But they kept it secret. But when the woman had a baby from his father they all knew that it must be from the white man
