In a NY Times Article – On Nixon Tapes, Ambivalence Over Abortion, Not Watergate, Tricky Dick delivers the bad news for bi-racials –

“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding: “Or a rape.”

Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” apparently included a healthy dose of racial eugenics.

Either “you is, or you ain’t” or if “you wasn’t” you “passed” or claimed Native American heritage by the “one drop rule” of the Jim Crow and slavery era going back to early laws first being established in 1670.

Our President, one of our greatest sports figure Tiger Woods, and the top female recording  artist Mariah Carey are all “bi-racial”. A rising number of top celebrities have mixed heritage.

If Nixon had had his way…
