3.0 out of 5 stars Read the exerpts on Amazon! Book is more complex, October 3, 2008

This review is from: White Women, Black Men: Illicit Sex in the Nineteenth-Century South (Paperback)
PLEASE READ THE EXCERPTS OF THIS BOOK ON AMAZON! This book does NOT say that MOST black man/white woman rape cases were about "lovers" being separated by racist white men! It does NOT suggest that black women were willingly "swinging" with white men while black men and white women were being separated!
This book TRIES to expose the many economic, racial,class, and gender issues that made southern black turn a blind eye to white female/black male sex BEFORE the Civil War, then start calling it rape AFTER!
This book clearly recognizes that systemic sexual exploitation of black women and girl by white men, but goes further to suggest that such abuse had few drawbacks for white men because- by law- all children of black slave mothers were slaves. While law said that any children born to a white mother- were free and had rights. This made black male/white female sex a potential source of non-white people who had full white status.
This book says much more than that. So, read the excerpts and then GET THE BOOK!
