Historically in the US, a person was considered black if that person had ene 1 drop of African blood. This was a legal distinction that allowed white slave owners to enslave their own children born to black slave mothers. By raping their female slaves, the slave owners could increase their slave population with little cost to themselves. I think that it is terrible that this distinction still exists, considering its origin. People should be recognized for their entire heritage, not just a portion.
