In Response To: Re: Free Negro vs. Mullato ()
I'm sorry. I laughed just as much, when I put the original message together, as when I read your letter. I wanted the forum to read and really think about the document I introduced. I looked at it as a road map on how to become White. I wanted to show the forum that the word Mullato was nothing special. There was no glory being called a Mullato. There was no glory being called a bastard, either. But, I understand where you are coming from. Your grandfather was not Black, but, White America was not going to allow him the freedom of a White, so they put him with us.
