Recently I blogged about the Melungeons, who are a people of obscure origins, who mostly live or originate in Appalachia. Now there is a new DNA study which contradicts some of the previous research, and some of those of Melungeon ancestry are not happy with the results.
The AP article here states that some of the more exotic speculations about the Melungeons -- such as descent from ancient Phoenicians -- have been discredited. The results seem to show that the group is descended from African males and European-descended females.
As usual the story is used as a vehicle for the usual multiracial propaganda, the message being that the Melungeons are us, essentially. We are all multiracial, says the man speaking in this video, who is quoted in the story.
This 'we are all' statement is an extravagant one, and not one that is provable. But it's typical of the kind of thing the media tell us repeatedly these days. If they say it often enough, it will be so, seems to be the idea, and they may be right, as the average American somehow believes that race does not exist, yet we are all multiracial. So let's do away with all the divisions between us.
The media seem to spend a lot of time writing and talking about a non-existent subject. But there is a method to their madness.
