From the New York Times Magazine:

Sigrid Johnson Was Black. A DNA Test Said She Wasn’t.

The surge in popularity of services like 23andMe and Ancestry means that more and more people are unearthing long-buried connections and surprises in their ancestry.

By Ruth Padawer, Nov. 19, 2018

Yet, the main character in the story, Ms. Johnson, an adoptee, winds up with no surprise at all: she turns out to be white on her biological mother’s side and quite black on her biological father’s side, just like a variety of information had led her to assume for the last few decades.

There’s much kvetching in the article about the inaccuracies, inconsistencies, and unreliability of commercial DNA testing, using the story of an adopted woman who was told her mother was white and her father was black.

But, if you read far enough into the article, as of Fall 2018, AncestryDNA said Ms. Johnson was 45% sub-Saharan African while 23andMe said she was 43.4% sub-Saharan, which is in line with what she now knows about her family history and her own life and looks.

Those sound like pretty convergent estimates to me. It appears that DNA testing for race is getting fairly reliable as it progresses, a far cry from 2009 when Larry David was told he was 3/8ths American Indian.

Moreover, AncestryDNA put Ms. Johnson in connection with her half-sister Ms. Smith, who had also been given up by their mother for adoption. They are very glad to have found each other.

But here’s a bigger question: We are constantly told things like “Race has no biological reality; it’s just a social construct.” But two different DNA testing services report that Ms. Johnson’s biological father likely traced somewhere around 85% or 90% of his genes to sub-Saharan Africa.

Does this mean the “Race does not exist biologically” dogmatists were just pulling our leg?

  1. If race does not exist, that means affirmative action has the same scientific basis as pixie dust. The left has to make a decision one way or another, or would if it hadn’t already lost its collective mind.

    AA can be used against White People.
    Being against White People is all that matters.
    Therefore, AA is good and will be used against White People.
    Anyone who questions this will be sued.
    End of discussion.

  2. Considering that the black and mulatto elites claim that antebellum white “rapists” forced European DNA on them, we have to conclude that the so-called “rapist” DNA was and is highly prized. Quotes from the article:

    The neighborhood, West Mount Airy, was a tree-lined community, one of the first in the nation to integrate successfully. It was populated mostly by middle- and upper-class people, including many African-American professional men who had fair-skinned wives and children whose complexions matched their mothers’.

    When Johnson was 22, she fell for a man she would later marry, but she never told him that she was half white or adopted. Her parents disapproved of how dark the man’s skin was, because in their experience, lighter complexion meant higher status and more options. When the young couple’s son was born in 1976, Johnson’s parents were relieved that his coloring was more like their daughter’s.

  3. OT – But any thoughts on the NFL moving their “ITW/ITW” promotional game from Mexico City back to LA?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/13/sports/nfl-mexico-city.html

    The article cites the Mexican field being unsuitable to play (is that because of all the shallow graves MS-13 has there, or is there currently a 30 day mass sacrifice in process), but do you believe that? Seems dubious at best, especially with all of the fires.

    Serious security concerns, perhaps?

    No, they couldn't take down the stone hoop they throw the heads through in time.

    In all seriousness, it was probably the field and Mexico City's altitude and smog more than security. Mexico City is relatively safe, and the teams would have been well protected.

    It's going to be fun watching old rape and murder cases get cleared using familial DNA. "My AncestryDNA test shows that I'm 23% southern slave owner, 77% Bantu, and related to two murderers!"

    Their only concern was the poor condition of the field. They already announced they are going to schedule another game in Mexico City next season. I would assume the NFL will demand control of the playing turf for several weeks ahead time for next year's game to make sure they don't have the same problem.

  4. The appalling Ann D’Amico, the biological mother of this Johnson character! She had several white children with her husband Eric Moser before going nuts with at least three black men, each of whom fathered at least one child with her. This all happened in the late 50s – early 60s in Philadelphia.

    When the first black child popped out, friends of Eric Moser took him aside and said, “Eric, that kid ain’t yours.” Child put up for adoption. Does Eric divorce her, does he strangle her, abandon her–apparently not. A year or so later, another child pops out of the delirious Ann, and it’s another black child! Up for adoption. And at least one more black child a year later.

    Ann D’Amico blacked before blacked was cool. Crazy bitch.

    And, ultimately, wouldn’t that be the part that bothered you, if you’re this Sigrid Johnson–the fact you’ve got a whole lot of crazy in your genes?

    Mystery solved in the NY Times comments, only two or three of which asked the obvious--what the hell was going on with Mr. Moser and Ann D'Amico. Best theory is that Ann was "working" on the side later in her life, needed to support her six (white) Moser children, etc.

    So Sigrid Johnson may not have had a yo-yo for a biological mother--she was just a common whore.

    And what does that say about the desperation of black men that they would pay for sex with some white women, even a sad sack mother of six (and counting)?

    ......>>if you’re this Sigrid Johnson–the fact you’ve got a whole lot of crazy in your genes?

    So I googled the name Eric Moser and up pops an obituary of a recently deceased woman from Upper Darby, PA (one of the prole burbs of Philly) with a reference to both an Eric Moser (her son, maybe grandson of the old cuck) and D'Amico family. Hmm. Now when you google up Ann D'Amico the primary reference is to the 15-minute-infamous Mark D'Amico, of Philadelphia, who along with his crack/fentanyl head buddy and girlfriend was arrested last week for running a Go Fund Me scam that netted the trio close to $400,000 (a good portion of which had already gone up their noses before they were arrested). All related? Probably not, but you never know. In any case, the safer bet is to stay far away from dysfunctional proles.

    I hope his kids appreciate this Eric Moser guy--how much he loved them to stay with this woman--and don't start dissing him with "racist".

  8. We need to snap out of all this wrongthink. Let us turn to page 1 in our prayer books, to the Catechism of Racial Equality.

    Race does not exist biologically, and is a social construct.

    Racism is the paradigm adopted by the dominant socially-constructed race, white people, to maintain dominance over non-whites through the use of powerful prejudice.

    White people are the socially constructed group defined by their pale skin and characteristic facial features, who use and benefit from racism, the prejudicial methods including beauty standards, test anxiety, and stereotyping of non-whites that damage the self-esteem of non-whites and thereby diminish non-white productivity, and the past and present use of military and police power and bad credit scores to expropriate the production of non-whites and retard the accumulation of non-white wealth.

  11. OT, but I couldn’t resist passing this along, as it encompasses so many iSteve themes.

    Angry Lesbian SJW astrologist interprets the movement of the spheres in radical political terms, for the spiritual enrichment of her rapidly expanding audience — and the financial enrichment of herself. The article contains such gems as:

    Jenna Wortham, a follower of Nicholas and a technology and culture reporter at The New York Times . . . . says “I know a lot of people in my life who don’t give a shit about astrology and think that my interest in star signs is ludacris and laughable, but I don’t have to talk to them.”

    I’d love to know whether it was Ms. Wortham of the NY Times, or the writer of the article (the aptly named Ariana Igneri), or some anonymous copy editor, who decided that the spelling of the word “ludicrous” should now conform to the nome de rap of the artist formerly known as Christopher Brian Bridges.

    All of this published in the Rolling Stone, no less.

    No shame in murderous ancestors. Finding out that detail can explain a callous attitude toward someone in the news or close by that came to an end they deserved. I have a few murderers in my past as well as a cousin in jail for 135 years for a murder starting in 1978. I know from family history that my Pop's family came from Scotland as debtors of some sort, sent by the Jamestown Company to work off their debts. As they made their push across the Blue Ridge to settle outside of what later became Nashville, they killed lots of Injuns. When creditor's agents from Scotland came out to collect the bounty of their "debts", they killed them too. Independence was also about settling old scores. Later, they were moonshiners and people disappeared. It wasn't murder, it was business. Hillbillies invented the concept, not NY Wise Guys.

    That my ancestors and relatives took care of their business in this way explains things about me, about a couple of siblings, my Pop. Apples, they don't fall far from the tree. I wish as a kid (we all do), that I'd paid more attention to my Granafather, asked him stuff. Ah well. We know the good stuff, heh..

    Philadelphia was the 1st state north of the Mason-Dixon line and abolished slavery early (when Washington was President and Phila. was the capital he had to keep rotating his household slaves back to Virginia because if they stayed in PA for 90 continuous days they could declare themselves free under PA law. One more reason why moving the capital up the river from Mt. Vernon was attractive to him).

    So Philly has always had a large black population (and in early days they mingled with the Irish and other indentured servants and working class whites). So Philly's original (pre-Civil War) black population was very much on the "light" side (just like the Creoles of color of N. Orleans). Later they were overwhelmed by the hundreds of thousands of blacks who came north from S. Carolina, etc. who look pretty black but there are still a few of the old yaller families around like Obama's minister Rev. Wright.

    I can tell you that freckles on a black person is not usually a good look. On the right below is Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the "abortion" doctor ( abortion in scare quotes because he did abortions on full term babies, i.e. infanticide) who I think is also from an old Philadelphia colored family :

    On the left is the black guy who plays him in the movie. I guess it's no good to confuse movie audiences with black people who don't quite look like black people - so much for race does not exist. In S. Africa, "coloured" is a separate category from black and means mixed race but in the US we had the color line so you were either black or white with no in between.

    If genetics ever becomes mainstream – big if – on the left then it will likely only do so under two conditionalities:

    1. Race as a biological reality will be used to demand even more social spending on blacks/browns due to “inherent inequality”. The argument will be “we can not be slaves to genes, we can act to lower the impact. That is a social choice”.

    2. Genetic enhancement will be used as a an argument that while some may be intellectually lower in ability, this will no longer matter due to gene editing so while it may have been a valid concern in the past, it is no longer and it is in fact irrational to think about it now unless if you’re a fearmongering bigot.

    lol at the affirmative action sweepstakes of today and the idiotic clown world idea where condoleezza rice somehow keeps coming up as a superior football analyst who maybe should even be the commissioner of the NFL. this one has gotta be the stupidest joke running, out of all of them.

  19. I guess “DNA Test Precisely Confirms Woman’s Mixed Race Background” just didn’t sound like it would generate the clicks?

    This is why we must have female journalists on the bio beat. Apparently there just aren’t enough “males” who’ve swallow the requisite quanities of soy? So we get the likes of Meehan Crist or Ruth Padawer, to demonstrate their complete credelous compliance with the narrative again and again and again.

    I’ve know men were different then women my whole life. But i’m still occasionally taken aback witnessing this need to abjectly, slobberingly demonstrate absolute unquestioning conformity.

    Interesting, because theorizing is a guy thing. And all this–aggressively–stupid and false ideology is the product of men–90% Jewish men. But if it’s what the establishment–the schools, government, the media–is pumping out, women queue right up, out the door and around the block, for the right to demonstrate they are absolutely 110% on board with every incoherent, illogical, anti-empirical bit of it. They believe!

    Aside from the gratuitous swipe at Jews, this is pretty much spot on. Yesterday for the first time (I don't know how I missed this but I did) I learned about the "White Feather" campaign in WWI in which the establishment enlisted the women of England to publicly harass all military age men who were not in uniform (before they were able to accomplish their real goal and pass a mandatory draft law). The campaign backfired because it worked too well - women were harassing men who were not in uniform because they were wounded veterans, on leave from the front, doing essential war work, etc. Women LOVE harassing men so this was a great assignment for them that they took to with relish. Usually they are socially sanctioned from harassing and humiliating strangers but the White Feather campaign gave them license. Things like The Committee for the Defense of the Revolution (a network of neighborhood snitches) work the same way in Cuba and other Communist countries - women LOVE snitching.

    Our society today has again given women license to harass men and the predictable result has occurred. Let's see how long it takes before there is a backlash?

    When the first black child popped out, friends of Eric Moser took him aside and said, "Eric, that kid ain't yours." Child put up for adoption. Does Eric divorce her, does he strangle her, abandon her--apparently not. A year or so later, another child pops out of the delirious Ann, and it's another black child! Up for adoption. And at least one more black child a year later.

    Ann D'Amico blacked before blacked was cool. Crazy bitch.

    And, ultimately, wouldn't that be the part that bothered you, if you're this Sigrid Johnson--the fact you've got a whole lot of crazy in your genes?

    No shame in murderous ancestors. Finding out that detail can explain a callous attitude toward someone in the news or close by that came to an end they deserved. I have a few murderers in my past as well as a cousin in jail for 135 years for a murder starting in 1978. I know from family history that my Pop’s family came from Scotland as debtors of some sort, sent by the Jamestown Company to work off their debts. As they made their push across the Blue Ridge to settle outside of what later became Nashville, they killed lots of Injuns. When creditor’s agents from Scotland came out to collect the bounty of their “debts”, they killed them too. Independence was also about settling old scores. Later, they were moonshiners and people disappeared. It wasn’t murder, it was business. Hillbillies invented the concept, not NY Wise Guys.

    That my ancestors and relatives took care of their business in this way explains things about me, about a couple of siblings, my Pop. Apples, they don’t fall far from the tree.

    Ancestry updated their database again a couple of months ago and changed most their regional classifications. When they updated the results for both my wife and I the new results made more sense based on our family tree history than the old ones did. They are trying to get very precise in some regions and track migration of certain groups to the Americas. I don’t know if they are getting enough data to do that accurately yet.

    If you read the article, of the two most recent DNA tests she took (from 2 different companies), one said 43% and the other said 45%, which is pretty close agreement. Some of the test companies keep updating their results online as their databases improve so even if you don't retake the test they will give you updated (and more accurate) results periodically.

    The test that said that she was 3% African was from 2015 and was clearly wrong - I suspect that if you saw Sigrid (they have taken great care to tint her photos purple to obscure her race) you would see her as obviously a mulatto. They probably pegged her as Hispanic back then because so many Hispanics (e.g. Puerto Ricans) are black/white mixes.

    I don't think the DNA companies have a terrific database on blacks because most blacks have better things to do with their money than taking DNA tests and many blacks are paranoid about cooperating with the Man - they think that 23 and Me is going to do some sort of Tuskegee Experiment on them or something.

    If genetics ever becomes mainstream - big if - on the left then it will likely only do so under two conditionalities:

    1. Race as a biological reality will be used to demand even more social spending on blacks/browns due to "inherent inequality". The argument will be "we can not be slaves to genes, we can act to lower the impact. That is a social choice".

    2. Genetic enhancement will be used as a an argument that while some may be intellectually lower in ability, this will no longer matter due to gene editing so while it may have been a valid concern in the past, it is no longer and it is in fact irrational to think about it now unless if you're a fearmongering bigot.

    Racism is the paradigm adopted by the dominant socially-constructed race, white people, to maintain dominance over non-whites through the use of powerful prejudice.

    White people are the socially constructed group defined by their pale skin and characteristic facial features, who use and benefit from racism, the prejudicial methods including beauty standards, test anxiety, and stereotyping of non-whites that damage the self-esteem of non-whites and thereby diminish non-white productivity, and the past and present use of military and police power and bad credit scores to expropriate the production of non-whites and retard the accumulation of non-white wealth.

    That's not how DNA works. Every single cell in your body contains your entire genome and every single cell has the SAME genome (with very rare and insignificant exceptions like a few fetal cells that end up in their mother's bloodstream). All of your thousands of ancestors contributions are written into 1 particular blueprint and then that blueprint gets put on the copying machine and copied exactly over and over so if you take 1 or 10 or 100 samples they are all going to have the exact same DNA (except to the extent it gets damaged or degraded).

    It's really an amazing thing, as if every single nut and bolt and fleck of paint in your car had a complete set of blueprints for the whole car coded into it.

    Aside from the gratuitous swipe at Jews, this is pretty much spot on. Yesterday for the first time (I don’t know how I missed this but I did) I learned about the “White Feather” campaign in WWI in which the establishment enlisted the women of England to publicly harass all military age men who were not in uniform (before they were able to accomplish their real goal and pass a mandatory draft law). The campaign backfired because it worked too well – women were harassing men who were not in uniform because they were wounded veterans, on leave from the front, doing essential war work, etc. Women LOVE harassing men so this was a great assignment for them that they took to with relish. Usually they are socially sanctioned from harassing and humiliating strangers but the White Feather campaign gave them license. Things like The Committee for the Defense of the Revolution (a network of neighborhood snitches) work the same way in Cuba and other Communist countries – women LOVE snitching.

    I don't think there'll be a backlash because the harassment has been socially and culturally sanctioned. Sanctioned in schools--from primary and secondary through university graduate schools--in media, in government, and most big business.

    The rule of the day is double standards. Women are to be given, not merely equal access and opportunity, but preferential treatment, and are to be given deference as chivalrous respect required due to their status as women (mothers, sisters, daughters), and as the weaker sex (and never to be spoken of).

    Any violation of the double standard is proof positive of sexism and misogyny for which there is no defense.

    Male feminists and cucks alone, much less participating in harassment, are evidence of conformity with the feminist (a subset of the PC/SJW) narrative--the opposite of backlash.

    One need only look at enforcement by IT--Google (James Damore), FB, Twitter, Paypal, hosting sites, crowd funding sites (e.g. GoFundMe), etc., to see this in action.

    When I hit the streets back in '81
    Found a heart in the gutter and a poet's crown
    I felt barbed wire kisses and icicle tears
    Where have I been for all these years?
    I saw political intrigue, political lies
    Gonna wipe those smiles of self-satisfaction from their eyes

    I will wear your white feather, I will carry your white flag
    I will swear I have no nation but I'm proud to own my heart....

    We don't need no uniforms, we have no disguise
    Divided we stand, together we'll rise....
     
    The superstition goes that a white feather plucked from a game cock and placed in the clothing of a person marked a poor or cowardly fighter. This is because a pure-bred gamecock wouldn't have white tail feathers. This term was first used in the eighteenth century.

    The novel The Four Feathers by A.E.W. Mason, published in 1902, tells the story of an officer who resigns his commission on the eve of being sent to war. Three fellow officers and his fiancée give him a white feather in the belief he is a coward. In fact, his resignation was for personal reasons and he goes on to fight a clandestine war whilst in disguise. At the end of the novel, he returns the feathers to their senders, including the fellow officer whose life he saved.

    In the early years of World War One, an admiral orchestrated a campaign where women would give white feathers to men without a uniform. This coercion was extremely effective and the Home Secretary had to decree civil servants, who did not wear uniforms, would be issued with a badge stating that they were serving King and Country to save them from the Order of the White Feather campaigners.

    AncestryDNA and 23andMe Found Accurate for Finding Heritage. Unnamed Paternity Test Found Unreliable for Ancestry.

    The unnamed paternity testing company has a couple of issues here.

    1. Probably a very low sample size of isolated populations, if they have any. These maps of DNA clusters are proprietary and exhaustive/ expensive.

    2. Different methodology. They take a cheek swab, while AncestryDNA and 23andMe have you fill a vial with spit.

    I have wondered about the cup-o-loogie method since it is so disgusting and cop drama tv has always portrayed a simple cheek swab. However, these huge companies seem to know what they are doing. My guess is they take multiple slides from the one large sample and run independent tests, then take the average. That would be a way to up the accuracy because any one test can show wide variations. Given that we have thousands of ancestors, this variation is to be expected.

    That’s not how DNA works. Every single cell in your body contains your entire genome and every single cell has the SAME genome (with very rare and insignificant exceptions like a few fetal cells that end up in their mother’s bloodstream). All of your thousands of ancestors contributions are written into 1 particular blueprint and then that blueprint gets put on the copying machine and copied exactly over and over so if you take 1 or 10 or 100 samples they are all going to have the exact same DNA (except to the extent it gets damaged or degraded).

    It’s really an amazing thing, as if every single nut and bolt and fleck of paint in your car had a complete set of blueprints for the whole car coded into it.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/13/sports/nfl-mexico-city.html

    The article cites the Mexican field being unsuitable to play (is that because of all the shallow graves MS-13 has there, or is there currently a 30 day mass sacrifice in process), but do you believe that? Seems dubious at best, especially with all of the fires.

    Serious security concerns, perhaps?

    Actually the DNA test said about 3% African, not 43%, right?
    If she was 43% her Afro wouldn't have collapsed.

    Replies: @Jack D

    If you read the article, of the two most recent DNA tests she took (from 2 different companies), one said 43% and the other said 45%, which is pretty close agreement. Some of the test companies keep updating their results online as their databases improve so even if you don’t retake the test they will give you updated (and more accurate) results periodically.

    The test that said that she was 3% African was from 2015 and was clearly wrong – I suspect that if you saw Sigrid (they have taken great care to tint her photos purple to obscure her race) you would see her as obviously a mulatto. They probably pegged her as Hispanic back then because so many Hispanics (e.g. Puerto Ricans) are black/white mixes.

    I don’t think the DNA companies have a terrific database on blacks because most blacks have better things to do with their money than taking DNA tests and many blacks are paranoid about cooperating with the Man – they think that 23 and Me is going to do some sort of Tuskegee Experiment on them or something.

    Aside from the gratuitous swipe at Jews, this is pretty much spot on. Yesterday for the first time (I don't know how I missed this but I did) I learned about the "White Feather" campaign in WWI in which the establishment enlisted the women of England to publicly harass all military age men who were not in uniform (before they were able to accomplish their real goal and pass a mandatory draft law). The campaign backfired because it worked too well - women were harassing men who were not in uniform because they were wounded veterans, on leave from the front, doing essential war work, etc. Women LOVE harassing men so this was a great assignment for them that they took to with relish. Usually they are socially sanctioned from harassing and humiliating strangers but the White Feather campaign gave them license. Things like The Committee for the Defense of the Revolution (a network of neighborhood snitches) work the same way in Cuba and other Communist countries - women LOVE snitching.

    Our society today has again given women license to harass men and the predictable result has occurred. Let's see how long it takes before there is a backlash?

    Replies: @Forbes, @fnn, @J.Ross, @Autochthon

    I don’t think there’ll be a backlash because the harassment has been socially and culturally sanctioned. Sanctioned in schools–from primary and secondary through university graduate schools–in media, in government, and most big business.

    The rule of the day is double standards. Women are to be given, not merely equal access and opportunity, but preferential treatment, and are to be given deference as chivalrous respect required due to their status as women (mothers, sisters, daughters), and as the weaker sex (and never to be spoken of).

    Any violation of the double standard is proof positive of sexism and misogyny for which there is no defense.

    Male feminists and cucks alone, much less participating in harassment, are evidence of conformity with the feminist (a subset of the PC/SJW) narrative–the opposite of backlash.

    One need only look at enforcement by IT–Google (James Damore), FB, Twitter, Paypal, hosting sites, crowd funding sites (e.g. GoFundMe), etc., to see this in action.

    It’s going to be fun watching old rape and murder cases get cleared using familial DNA. “My AncestryDNA test shows that I’m 23% southern slave owner, 77% Bantu, and related to two murderers!”
     
    No shame in murderous ancestors. Finding out that detail can explain a callous attitude toward someone in the news or close by that came to an end they deserved. I have a few murderers in my past as well as a cousin in jail for 135 years for a murder starting in 1978. I know from family history that my Pop's family came from Scotland as debtors of some sort, sent by the Jamestown Company to work off their debts. As they made their push across the Blue Ridge to settle outside of what later became Nashville, they killed lots of Injuns. When creditor's agents from Scotland came out to collect the bounty of their "debts", they killed them too. Independence was also about settling old scores. Later, they were moonshiners and people disappeared. It wasn't murder, it was business. Hillbillies invented the concept, not NY Wise Guys.

    That my ancestors and relatives took care of their business in this way explains things about me, about a couple of siblings, my Pop. Apples, they don't fall far from the tree. I wish as a kid (we all do), that I'd paid more attention to my Granafather, asked him stuff. Ah well. We know the good stuff, heh..

    Native characters appear onscreen just twice and have no dialogue—in a film that purports to depict the West as it was being colonized and stolen from tribal nations. They are mentioned several other times, usually when white characters invoke their names in trepidation, borne out of a fear of being set upon by the “savages.” When Native characters do appear, they serve as nothing more than confirmations of white fear.

    When I hit the streets back in ’81
    Found a heart in the gutter and a poet’s crown
    I felt barbed wire kisses and icicle tears
    Where have I been for all these years?
    I saw political intrigue, political lies
    Gonna wipe those smiles of self-satisfaction from their eyes

    I will wear your white feather, I will carry your white flag
    I will swear I have no nation but I’m proud to own my heart….

    We don’t need no uniforms, we have no disguise
    Divided we stand, together we’ll rise….

    The superstition goes that a white feather plucked from a game cock and placed in the clothing of a person marked a poor or cowardly fighter. This is because a pure-bred gamecock wouldn’t have white tail feathers. This term was first used in the eighteenth century.

    The novel The Four Feathers by A.E.W. Mason, published in 1902, tells the story of an officer who resigns his commission on the eve of being sent to war. Three fellow officers and his fiancée give him a white feather in the belief he is a coward. In fact, his resignation was for personal reasons and he goes on to fight a clandestine war whilst in disguise. At the end of the novel, he returns the feathers to their senders, including the fellow officer whose life he saved.

    In the early years of World War One, an admiral orchestrated a campaign where women would give white feathers to men without a uniform. This coercion was extremely effective and the Home Secretary had to decree civil servants, who did not wear uniforms, would be issued with a badge stating that they were serving King and Country to save them from the Order of the White Feather campaigners.

    Philadelphia was the 1st state north of the Mason-Dixon line and abolished slavery early (when Washington was President and Phila. was the capital he had to keep rotating his household slaves back to Virginia because if they stayed in PA for 90 continuous days they could declare themselves free under PA law. One more reason why moving the capital up the river from Mt. Vernon was attractive to him).

    So Philly has always had a large black population (and in early days they mingled with the Irish and other indentured servants and working class whites). So Philly’s original (pre-Civil War) black population was very much on the “light” side (just like the Creoles of color of N. Orleans). Later they were overwhelmed by the hundreds of thousands of blacks who came north from S. Carolina, etc. who look pretty black but there are still a few of the old yaller families around like Obama’s minister Rev. Wright.

    I can tell you that freckles on a black person is not usually a good look. On the right below is Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the “abortion” doctor ( abortion in scare quotes because he did abortions on full term babies, i.e. infanticide) who I think is also from an old Philadelphia colored family :

    On the left is the black guy who plays him in the movie. I guess it’s no good to confuse movie audiences with black people who don’t quite look like black people – so much for race does not exist. In S. Africa, “coloured” is a separate category from black and means mixed race but in the US we had the color line so you were either black or white with no in between.
