Up until the Civil Rights movement of the 1950/1960's, the showing of mixed races having sex was illegal, and taboo in society. Today it is a popular niche in the Adult Industry.

In many instances, those of 'mixed heritage' were not only subjected to discrimination from the white populace, but also from many within their own 'black' community.

Many of the words to describe a person of mixed heritage, derived from the slave era, and in the 19th Century, southern states adopted the Jim Crow Laws, which lumped any person with any black heritage, as being black, subject to the segregation laws of the time.
