I suspect there are few (and probably none of our subscribers) that are
of a single bloodline.

There were a few in the mountains outside of Bainbridge, OH where I grew
up; I often heard Dad's telling their boys "If she ain't good enough
for her own kin, she ain't good enough for us" ..and there seemed to be
a preponderance of albino and more than 5 digits per extremity...but
they we're pure blood, fer sure...

Maybe you need to send a message to the mainstream media?
They keep calling him an 'African-American', if that is not 'Black'
then what, exactly, is the difference? How much mixed racial
blood do you need to have to be called 'Of Mixed Race?'
