If your complexion (or anyone in your family) is similar to that of the copper-colored penny, then your ancestors may have come from the copper-colored races of people the Europeans found in America. I spent most of my life believing my ancestors came from Africa, because I am African-American. I learned different once I started researching my ancestry.
The blog posts found here are based on facts I came across during my research. I am sharing this knowledge to help others become enlightened. The “Know Better” sections contain information for you to check out yourself. The “Do Better” sections contain suggested things to do with the information you learn. Nothing will ever change without action!
Know Better: If you are not certain your ancestors are from Africa, I encourage you to research your family’s history. You can start by getting access to census records through ancestry sites on the internet. Valuable information can also be gained by just interviewing your eldest relatives.
Do Better: Stop embracing a title just because it was given to you. Share what you learn with your relatives, so future generations will know the truth about who they are and where they came from.
