I read and studied J.A. Rogers books the most during a period of time when I was obsessed with blackness. As a black man in america, I don't think being obsessed with blackness is anything to be ashamed of however. It's simply a reaction to racism.
In this second volume, Roger's focuses on the new world and shows that the inhabitants of the americas are far from being pure racially. As discussed in the previous volume, race mixing with blacks took place all over Europe. In the new world however, whites not only mixed with blacks but also with the indigenous peoples of the americas including the caribbean. Also, there is good reason to believe that some of the indigenous peoples of the americas were already somewhat mixed before the europeans arrived. The one thing which I really like about J.A. Rogers books is the fact that he is not afraid to confront certain issues which are embarrasing to most whites even today.
Did you ever wonder why some black people from the caribbean and south and central america don't like being called black? Some will say because they aren't black, they are Spanish or Brazilian. Based on historical evidence Roger's points out that the blacks of the caribbean and south and central america are just as "black" as the blacks in america. It's just that some of them may look different because race mixing took place in different degrees in different areas.
Unfortuantely, the issue of race mixing is a very touchy issue, so a lot that is in books like this cannot be talked about without angering people unless you're in some sort of "radical" black group. Therefore, much of what is contained in this book should be kept to oneself. Regardless of what country someone is from, they don't like being told that they are of black african ancestry. Most "non-whites" will say they simply don't care and are irritated by the topic.

I read the 3 volume set many years ago and my eyes were opened to the fact that no one is pure black, white or whatever. I recall thinking about that madman Hitler's dream of a master race while reading the volumes and realizing then that none of his Germans were pure "Aryans" during his reign. Even though some of the race-mixing was done through brutality the most touching thing about the book(s) is the fact that attraction and love transcend racial boundaries and isn't that the way it should be?

The Sex & Race Trilogy took J.A. Rogers years to research and write and contains little known facts and some remarkable picutures. For those who think interracial romance is something new the books will be a complete shock. Rogers was convinced that love knew no color line and uses hundredss of historical cases to prove it.

I can't believe I've just got around to reading Mr. Rogers' works. I recommend all of his works. You want be sorry, that is, if you are offended by the truth.

I've always had an interest in history and how history has moulded us into today's world.

This volume and volume one has enabled me to look at all races differently. It has enabled me to realise that all races are connected by blood (despite it being forced in the past, or consensually today) I loved this book and couldn't put it down.

Great Bok that explores Race mixing despite racial bias. This book shows that we humans are racist, unless it comes to sexuall intercouse, proving "love"(if you can call sex love) is color blind and also proves that no one in america is pure racialy speaking. Great book.
