What is the Difference Between Black Lives and White Lives?


Small Size FRONT Canva Cover Secret Genealogy VThere is no difference between blacks and those whose skin color is otherwise. This was never brought home more clearly than through researching for a book I wanted to write about African American genealogy. There is no “race.” There are only people from the same human family whose ancestors stayed near or below the equator or went north to colder climates. The differences between ethnic groups are mostly cultural. Yes, there are some biologic variations, much like an oak tree growing in the Arizona desert is different than one growing along the California coastline.  There is no “us” and “them.” There is only “us,” and “we” are “all” in big trouble if “we” don’t understand that.
