Someone needs to teach 60 Minutes the word ‘rape’

So I watched this segment on 60 Minutes this weekend (which was a rerun of an old episode) about African Americans using genetic genealogy to find out about their family history. Unsurprisingly, a lot of people are finding out that they have white relatives. The whole segment is super interesting but it killed me that not once did anyone talk about the rape of black women and how that figured in to this genealogy. Wtf, 60 Minutes?

    This is complete farce. My Partner is black, and I am white. Am I to assume a hundred and fifty years a person some ignorant fool may assume that I raped her?
