RE, your last post! Why did they interbreed? Modern research into interbreeding families, at least at the first cousin level, tends to support the fact that no bad consequences occur! It is only when two or more of those breeding carry a bad gene or a regressive genetic mess that problems start to mount!
But, having "contempt" towards someone that looks and sounds much like yourself must have come into play, sometime, and somewhere?
