Southern women wrote in their diaries about the issue of mixed-race children resembling the white children, and about it being a common thing. If a white master slept with a black slave, there's such a power difference between the two that it's impossible to say there was any kind of "consent" involved.Pretty bold accusations. Do you have evidence to back up your claim..?
There is no doubt that sexual crimes occurred in the 19th century. There is no doubt that some slave women were raped. Having said that, I have a hard time with the insinuation that every mixed race child born, was a product of rape. There are plenty of other possibilities that I rarely see some folks even consider.
The rape assumption, feels more like narrative without evidence backing it up. I recall your skepticism when I brought up Yankee troops raping Southern women (white & black, slave & free) awhile back. Weird.
I have no doubt that there were rapes of southern women by Union soldiers, but I haven't seen any evidence that it was common. And it was prosecuted by Union commanders. Slaveholders raping slaves wasn't even considered illegal.
But regarding evidence, that is why I brought up the DNA testing. It will provide evidence as to where the white DNA originated.
