On the Matter of "Origins"[edit]

It was stated that the legacy ehtnic origins in the South (and particularly the Carolinas) that whites were of primarliy Scottish and Irish descent. I beg to differ. Since the explorer Guisseppi Caboti(a\k\a) "John Cabot", founded the colony, might there have been an emigration of northern Italian, and even Swiss(Genoa, Geneva, etc.) to the area? And how about English expats, refugees and indentured servants? Otherwise, it seems that the most glaring lie presented under the subject of "racial stock" origins is the ommitance of African Americans and their origins. Africans who were brought to South Carolina as either slaves or indentured servants have origins from west Africa and the various nations, kingdoms, or ethnic tribes therein. (We also acknowlege that some of the first Africanos were brought to the English colonies not directly from Africa, but from Brazil, as in the case of Jamestown, Vaginia. Then there is the category of "other"; what "others" are these? I say adamantley one cannot dismiss the Native Aborginal (Native America) from the demographics of this region, nor anywhere else in the territories of the British colonies. Records were kept and preserved up to this day. Many "Indians" were taken out of the region east of the Missippi to then unknown lands on the continnet, however not all of them! The Alogoquin ethnics (made up of mullatos of anglos, "natives" and very often Africanos) remained as residents long after the War Against Southern Rebellion. Many Carolanians who claim they are "While" and "nordic" are in fact mixed with "native" and Africano strains. So much on this matter. There is also the case of the category of "other" as concerns Asian immigration to the South in the short years following the end of the "Civil War" and the emancipation of Africanos. Unrepentant, and incalcratrant whites looked desperately to keep the status quo of illegal free labor. Some had thought they found a solution by sponsoring East Indians from the Sub-Continent, or even the Guyanas and Seranim to replace Blacks. The brutal, southrn white power structure reasoned that this system of their "kissin" cousins, The "British Empire" worked very well in South America and India; so it was that thousands of (Asiatic)Indians were brought in on the same indentured sevitude contracts that now were illegal by Contitutional Amendment and the Manumisson Laws. As evolution must follow, these new "immigrants" saw that they were being brutalized as much as African Americans. They gravitated towards a closer kinship with the latter. and, as they were "divested" and otherwise distaffed from their "cultures" (except those few who stubbonly and secretly stuck with the practices of their Muslim beliefs, especially those inhabitants of the "Sea Islands" off the coast of Carolina and Georgia. Finally, there should be mention-in the category of "other"-of refugees who fled the former Ottoman Empire, and afterwards, the carnages of WW I and Mustapha Kemal Attaturk's nation-building pogroms! Some of these "young (and old)Turks" and their families settled in South Carolina, destitute and propitious of the Africano communities there as they were brutally harrassed and denied "christain charity" by whites. I say again, the category of "other" in the census of South Carolia, as with all the other southern and, yes, mid-western and south-western states should be meticulously defined. --67.86.98.26 (talk) 16:31, 15 December 2011 (UTC)Veryverser
