Re: Racial Classifications - Are they reliable at

My great-grandfather was classified as a mulatto in one of the censuses. I asked family members about it, and they were puzzled because he's described as being a "dark brown-skinned" man. And I do know that his direct paternal lineage is pure African. So, I believe some of the censustakers were obviously blind. :)
