The Whitaker Family: Things you didn’t know!

Incest is disgusting just to think about. I’m not referring to Game of Thrones here. I’m referring to reality—a particularly unpleasant reality. Are you familiar with the Whitaker family? It is regarded as Odd, West Virginia’s most notorious inbred family.

The Whitaker family

Because Mark Laita photographed the Whitaker family for his book Created Equally, the family was catered to get attention on a global scale (2004). He did receive threats from neighbors who owned shotguns, too.

In 2020, he returned to the Whitaker home to make a video, which received more dislikes than likes but yet amassed more than 25 million views. The horrors of inbreeding are shown in the documentary.

To get them to open up, Mark Laita had to pay them four visits and give them gifts of money, food, and clothing.

He stated that all the individuals in this video were brothers and sisters, except for Timmy who is a cousin.

He added “There is no way I would be able to confirm that the Whitaker parents were related”

Mark confirmed “I would bet that inbreeding was at least partly responsible for the mental and physical abnormalities seen in Lorraine, Freddie, Ray, and Timmy.”

Numerous studies show that inbred offspring have diminished cognitive capacities, lung function issues, heart conditions, and are more susceptible to other diseases. Recessive genetic abnormalities are more likely to affect children who are inbred.

How does the Whitaker family’s situation stand then? It is reasonable to believe that inbreeding is widespread in some areas of West Virginia, and that their neighbors’ protection of them may be a contributing factor.

Inbred family

The breeding of organisms with intimate genetic ties is known as inbreeding. The behavior contradicts the biological purpose of mating, which is the DNA shuffle. The likelihood of near-natal and childhood death rises if the child is from a first cousin union, virtually tripling in some nations, according to a 2011 study, Consanguineous Marriages.

Inbreeding increases the chance of congenital abnormalities and genetic illnesses in the offspring, according to numerous scientists and medical professionals. Watch the following video to learn more about inbreeding:

The Whitaker family is entirely monogamous. The family’s members are all closely linked to one another genetically and biologically. They suffer from cognitive impairments as a result of this.

Members Lorraine, Ray, and Timmy have an unidentified mental illness. They barely have enough to survive and live in abject poverty. Ray in particular only grunts. What then is the reason?

The poverty of West Virginia has long been associated with stereotypes about the state’s inbreeding customs. National media published images of dilapidated shacks and children wearing rags in the 1930s, giving the state the reputation of being a backwater.

Incest was used as a crude, “scientific,” justification for the depressed social status of West Virginians, who were made to represent the archetypal “hillbillies.” First cousins can still be married in some areas of West Virginia despite the state’s new anti-incest law.

Inbreeding in the royal family

Let’s begin with an illustration. The British Royal family is renowned for keeping its affairs private. They have been performing it for many years. I’m not sure whether this makes sense, but I suddenly remembered the “The Crown” episode.

The Queen Mother’s brother John Herbert Bowes-Lyon and his wife Fenella had two daughters: Katherine and Nerissa. They have serious learning difficulties from birth. They were Queen Elizabeth II’s first cousins.

In actuality, their cousins Idonea, Etheldreda, and Rosemary were the sisters of Fenella and likewise experienced the same limitations. The disorder was believed to be hereditary and to have Charles Trefusis as a common maternal ancestor.

These people suffered horrendous deaths while being kept in the dark. For the sake of maintaining its prestige and genetic abnormality, the royal family never disclosed them.

Consequently, have you ever wondered why there is no information available on the Whitaker family? Why are they under deputy protection? Why are the Whitakers being made to suffer so greatly?

The British Whitaker family is depicted in the video. Mark Laita neglected to take the age of these people into account. They are not of midlife. Everyone is mature enough. So, are they also related to a wealthy family? Although we don’t know who, just a thought.

Although it is rumored that their parents passed away long ago, why don’t the surviving members divulge who their parents are? They merely loiter around without jobs. Fortunately, Mark has set up a GoFundMe page for them.
