|Frequently Asked Questions|
|What is this site all about?
This site essentially presents historic, genetic and anthropological evidence that while there are African genes in the Portuguese gene pool, that genetic contribution is completely irrelevant in terms of the phenotype of the ordinary Portuguese individual.
Why did you make this site?
Many foreigners (including some of Portuguese descent) have a somewhat skewed idea of Portugal.
This site was initially built after I realised that ordinary naive people could actually believe the racist lies that people like Arthur Kemp and Refuting Racial Myths were spreading Portugal and the Portuguese people, particularly the one that modern Portuguese were mulattos due to slave admixture from the XV century onwards.
The site naturally evolved and after three years, it is still the only one I know of that specifically addresses the ethno-history of the Portuguese people by conjugating History, Anthropology and Genetics. Since pictures are more valuable than words to show the obvious, I also built a photo gallery to show how Portuguese women actually look like.
Why would someone who is not extreme-right build a site such as this?
I have been accused of being a fascist by some people that either didn't read my site properly, or have been brainwashed to the point of thinking that anyone who likes his country has to be extreme-right. I do love my country, my country's history and my people. For me that is more than enough reason.
Communists have accused me of fascism for my patriotism, and fascists have accused me of being a Communist for proving that there is African admixture in Portugal. Considering that people from both factions are my harshest reviewers, I must be definitely doing something right.
Are you a racist?
I am politically incorrect. People should be responsible for what they say and do regardless of their skin colour. As far as I am concerned, that makes an Afrocentrist that claims that Blacks created the Hellenic civilization as racist as a White Supremacist that claims that the Romans were Nordic.
I also believe that we Europeans have apologised long enough for things that our ancestors did three or four hundred years ago (at a time when most were doing the same thing). Have you ever heard a North African apologise for the Barbary raids in southern Europe to capture European slaves and concubines? Did you know that the Arab Slave trade lasted almost 1500 years and that is was stopped thanks to Westerners? Did you know that the people that sold the Black slaves to the European slave traders were Black Africans themselves? And yet, we Europeans, are the only ones that are expected to apologise... In my book, having to put up with THAT is what is racist.
Would a racist build a site that shows that there are African genes in the Portuguese gene pool? You be the judge.
What do you think about racial mixing?
I have a somewhat ambiguous opinion. When racial mixing happens in a massive scale, there is a serious risk that some regional phenotypes may disappear forever, and I obviously wouldn't want that. When it happens in a small scale, it produces exotic looking people who often are very beautiful. The world is much more interesting with its diversity - and that diversity certainly includes both the native phenotypes and the racially mixed people. What people choose to do in their private lives is obviously none of my business.
I am concerned with the loss of our European culture and religious tolerance due to unrestricted immigration and suicidal multiculturalism, but that is a whole diferent subject for a whole diferent audience.
Do you have any formal training?
No, I do not. If I did, I would be writing a book, not a website hosted by Geocities. Nevertheless, most of the material used in this site was written by professionals. I tried to limit my work to conjugating sources from diferent fields in the way the real experts should have done in the first place. Enjoy.
