What Race was Abraham Lincoln?



He seems to not be white but like mixed with something else?

I remember way back reading something about the Melungeons of Appalachia which were like a distinct ethnic group unique to the area. Is it possible Abraham was a Melungeon? He certainly looks odd.

Some Melungeon boys back in the 1900s.

Melungeons, the mysterious dark-skinned mountaineers of eastern Tennessee and southwest Virginia and into Kentucky, have sparked myths and theories over the past century. They were whispered to be descendants of shipwrecked Portuguese sailors, or gypsies now known as Roma. Some have speculated on connections with the Lumbee Indians in Robeson County or the Lost Colonists of the Outer Banks.
The name likely comes from the French "melange," a slur most often used by suspicious white neighbors in the days of the Jim Crow South, when African-Americans and anyone with dark skin faced prejudice and segregation. Phone Post 3.0

Who are the Melungeon?

"In Tennessee, they are a people of more or less unknown origin. We assume there is some African ancestry, so the Melungeons largely kept to themselves," said Wayne Winkler, a professor at East Tennessee State University and author of the 2004 book Walking Toward the Sunset: The Melungeons of Appalachia.

Abraham Lincoln

On his looks

"My parents were both born in Virginia, of undistinguished families-second families, perhaps I should say…If any personal description of me is thought desirable, it may be said, I am, in height, six feet, four inches, nearly; lean in flesh, weighing, on an average, one hundred and eighty pounds; dark complexion with coarse black hair, and grey eyes — no other marks or brands recollected. Yours very truly, A. Lincoln.” Phone Post 3.0

He was Melungeon. Tom Hamks, Heather Locklear, Elvis Presley, Ava Gardner, and our own Rich 'The G-Man' Goins of early UFC fame are other notables of this most mysterious people.
