The wood-pile

Posted by Sylvia Butler on August 04, 2005

I just found this website and find it fasinating.

I was always told the phrase "Nigger in the wood-pile" meant that there was someone of Black ancestry had mixed in a white family but in was unspoken of as not to let anywone know, they wanted to keep it hidden, sometimes the phase is said if someone white has very very curly hair and or very full lips and tanned very dark.
