Re: Free Negro vs. Mullato
In Response To: Re: Free Negro vs. Mullato ()

I never said it didn't, and I am beginning to believe that you have me mixed up with someone. I know my family is black, and if you met me, you would know it too! There is nothing in my features that scream, mulatto. But you seemed to imply that someone was white and did not want black in their family, which is not the case here...I just found that on many Virginia Historical references, they put mulatto for Indian, because at one time, it was illegal in Virginia to declare yourself Indian, and you could be hung, which is why it was to an Indians benefit to declare himself a mulatto. Are we all clear now?
