Alright, I'll try to give a short definition. The term tri-racial isolated is not a nice term. It was invented by eugenicists. But it does actually describe the situation of at least some of these groups. The idea of race-mixing, however, was an obsession with the eugenicists, and they saw race-mixing perhaps where, in fact, it hadn't really occurred to any deep extent. Some of these groups, they may be, in fact, completely Black, or completely White, or completely Indian, but they've acquired a reputation, through the misunderstanding and prejudice of their neighbours and the pseudo-science of eugenics, as tri-racial. So usually it's Black, Indian and White would be the three races here in the New World. And the white people around here (in upstate New York), for example, they were Dutch. And we presume that they were Dutch people without much clout, or caste, maybe they were outsiders. And they went up and lived in the hills, maybe they married Blacks or Indians, that's possible. In some cases, they definitely did. But in any case, they would become a sort of a separate people. A friend of mine grew up in a part of Pennsylvania where there was one of these groups, and she said they had their own language, even. I mean, it was a dialect, and it was hard for other people to understand them when they talked amongst themselves. So very closed in, and sometimes for centuries, they'd kind of vanished. But in the 19th, and then in the 20th century, when everything became known, when there were no more hidden places, these groups would become known, outside their own little area. Usually in the area, they would be looked on as inferior types, weird, hillbillies, incestuous, up in the mountains there, they talk funny, that kind of thing...
