Re: Article on Strom Thurmonds' Biracial Daughter

Romare Bearden's family left Charlotte for NY because when Romare was a baby in a baby carriage, his skin and eyes were so fair, whites would see his darker father approaching the carriage and assume he was about to kidnap a white child. I have a friend whose S.C.-born (but D.C.-married)grandmother and g'father were of different complexions, so much so that many whites assumed he was chauffering her.
