      Just wanted to add that I am about to start reading
      an interesting looking book that seems to touch 
      on the theme of  the media's exploitation of events
      when they involve people of any part 'Black' lineage
      and exactly where the history of this behavior began.

      The a book entitled "Playing the Race Card:
      Melodramas of Black and White from Uncle Tom
      to O.J Simpson" (-----written by Linda Williams).

      This book -- it seems to me -- may make (I hope) a
      perfect reading companion to the excellent book and
      highly recommended book (with the very unusual
      title of) "Toms, Coons, Mulattoes, Mammies &
      Bucks
      : An Interpretive History of "blacks" in
      American Films" (----- written by Donald Bogle).

      Another book that looks like it will be very
      interesting for me to read is one entitled
      "From Mammy to Miss America and
      Beyond
      (----- written by K. Sue Jewell).

      I'm currently reading a book called
      "Nature knows no color line" by J.A.Rogers.

      It goes into detail about ... "black" europeans
      from the middle ages, showing "blacks"
      prominantly displayed on coats-of-arms etc.

      It also talks about how there were thousands
      of slaves, many of whom were raised and
      educated by nobles, who went on to
      become more or less the adopted offspring.

      These people married and had children -
      so where did their gene lines go to ? ;) 

       

      Really execellent book, but I'd also suggest
      any of his books, though many are out of print.
