African-Americans and Rh-negative Blood Type

Standard

The Black Cochin Jewish population has a high percentage of Rh-negative blood but the Rh-negative blood type is uncommon in the Black population in general, which is exactly the same interesting phenomenon as with the Oriental Jews of Israel who have a high percentage of Rh-negative blood, where among the Chinese and Japanese, Rh-negative blood type it is almost non-existent.

  1. I am African American with Scottish and Blackfoot Indian lineage. Ever since I found out I was Rh- negative I’ve been on a mission to find out more b/c it has affected my life so greatly. I am highly intelligent (don’t know what my IQ is but I know when tested as a child I excelled greatly in reading, science and arts), and very psychic. I am also Rh- sensitized which has also changed my life a great deal. I would like as much info on this matter as possible.

    • The RH factor, I am an o+ black female married to an o- black male we had 3 children to all living and no problems with deliveries. Can somebody explain to me why there were no still borns as stated in the article? My case must be special I would assume.

      • This applies to an RH- mother only. Now if you have daughters and she is RH- it’s a concern for her not you.

      • I don’t know for sure but probably because you are positive and your children are probably positive as well. My mother for example is negative, my father is positive. My mom did not receive the rhogam shot after my big sister and as I result I was what they called a blue baby. My mother did not make past 6 months pregnant with my younger brother. I am O negative and was lucky to get the shot after my first child and had no problems with pregnancy.

      • I thought it was rh negative women who couldn’t naturally carry rh positive babies..if you’re rh positive pretty likely all of your children are also rh positive anyway.

      • I have come to find out that I am also French Apache and Irish and that the rH negativity factor comes from that part of my lineage and not the Blackfoot native lineage. I just had my second son 4 weeks ago and he is also rH-. I had no issues with pregnancy and the only issue he seems to have is a sacral dent and a hypersensitive digestive system.
        One very interesting thing I have come across is that rH negativity does not appear to be evolutionary. Meaning that it was purposely created and bred for reasons of nobility. And that its creation is where the term “blue bloods” comes from.

  2. I am an African American living in the southern United States. I have Rh-Negative blood from my father. And B-Negative blood from my mother. Im very much interested in my ancestry. And who I am descended from. Especially sense a European told me that some black Rh-Negatives are Black Irish. And others are Jews.

  4. I am African and rh negative O blood type…. both my parent are both rh positive O blood type… I believe i am the only one with rh negative out of all my siblings… How is that possible? I am of the royal descent from Africa, my grandfather was a very powerful king. I don’t believe i have any missed race in me, i believe i am a full blooded African. everywhere i read about rh negative online, it seems the percentage of Africans with it are very small. i now live in America and found out i am rh negative after my third pregnancy… (had two miscarriages prior). i am just curious to see if you have any answers for me. Thanks,

    • AJ, I could only guess or use my imagination. The Berbers, the Basque, Oriental Jews and Ancient Persian Jews have high percentages of rh-negative blood in their populations. One of your ancestors may have been from one of these groups. There were and still are plenty of African Jews. I run across it frequently in my research. You aren’t the only person of African descent who is puzzled by this. I can tell by the search words people use. I think people get suspicious but children inherit differently. I’m also rh-negative and my sister isn’t. I read that there is a lot of rh-negative in Britain’s royal family tree. There is also some African and Jewish in that tree. It’s all very interesting, isn’t it? I’d love to see your family tree with the African king, maybe it matches somewhere with European royalty. Good luck with your genealogy search.

      • I am a Moor and some of the people you mention was berbers, perisian jews etc. The people mention above are all malotoes, the original people of them lands did not carry the RH negative until the blackamoors mixed with european women, that where you get all these mixed races, arabs, puerto ricans etc. further according to my research of peers viewed and empirical data.

      • I suspect mine comes from either the Irish, French (Basque) or Jewish Ethiopian lineage. Most of my family members on my paternal grandmother’s side are rH-. My great, great, great grandmother’s parents were French (Apache) and Creole (we suspect she assimilated either as a white Frenchwoman to the Apache tribe or as an Apachewoman to white), and her husband was Irish. Their names were Patrice McClain and Burton McClain of Oklahoma. My family members with rH- blood typing have two different color eyes, or underbites, and we all have red hair no matter the hue.

    • Hi as far as, the anti-D injections to protect my babies from the risk of rhesus incompatibility. I did not receive any injection for my unborn babies. I was not offered any injections, but my children are normal. I have 3 children with my black husband, who is o-, I am o+. I was never asked my husband blood type. My children turned out fine, they’ve all completed college and achieved their degrees. I don’t think enough research is done to make these statements. At the end of the day, I believe in God not the big bang theory!

      • The MOTHER alone has to be RH- to have issues with childbirth! You are O+ so it is normal that you have normal pregnancies and delivery.
        It YOU were O- then you would be at risk for pregnancy complications c

      • I am a O- melanated male from America and from what I have learned, a female with rh+ blood would have “nothing” to worry about, as carrying an rh- baby would not cause any issues. The issue is when an rh- female mates with an rh+ male because the rh- female could possibly reject an rh+ baby.(my mother was rh- and father rh+ so they did all types of monitoring to make sure I was not rh+) I also read that two rh- might have a low success rate of birth, but I still need to do some more research on that.
        It seems like a lot of our confusion comes from not knowing who we really are and where we really come from (or where we already were) as a people.
        *Also, what would the big bang theory have to do with blood types?
        Just because there are beings that are far MOOR advanced than they teach about in school or church, that could set up a “big bang” or influence the evolution of a life form on a planet through DNA/RNA manipulation, does not mean that there still isn’t a “source” or “creator of the boundless universe”.
        **And don’t believe the BS that “they” are pumping about the low % of rh- blood in Americans (most of us were never from “Africa”, so we are just Americans)

      • Because you are o+ you would not cause any antibodies to attack the fetus your husband is o- so it doesn’t matter. It only matters if the mother is o- because the child is carried in the mother’s body and her if blood mixes with the o+ baby in the uterus her body will produce antibodies that rejects subsequent pregnancies

  5. I am yet another AA with RH negative blood. My bloodlines span from West Africa, Cuba, ireland, Spain, Lebanon and probably Eurasia, due to Native American Indian genes as well.

    What I find so interesting about this inquiry into this specific blood type is how ‘White separatists’ have attempted to co-opt this blood type as a mark of their ‘purity’. I am hardly “pure” by any stretch of the word, but according to their non-logic, I have the “purest blood of Europe”. hahahaha!

    I always have a good chuckle when RH positive White Americans gloat about their “purity” in contrast to non Whites. LOL

    Thanks for this,

  6. I’m a O- African American woman. I had 2 miscarriages prior to giving birth to my 3 O+ babies. I did not have the rhogam injection prior to my 2 miscarriages. I think the number of Rh- African Americans is much higher than accounted for. I read that there’s only 7% of us, at most. However I personally know quite a few Rh- AA men and women. If the AA rh- population is so small then why do I know so many? The numbers just don’t add up to me.

    • I agree with you. It is fascinating how many African-Americans are coming to this blog to read about rh-negative. It is by far, the most popular topic. There are a lot of unanswerered questions. Thanks for commenting. I appreciate your input.
