BLACK HISTORY: Passing for White

Many Mooreno people in America have had a different experience from either other races and their own because of the plethora of shades that a Mooreno person can be. It is true that a Mooreno can be dark skinned or can be very fair skinned to fact that they might look Caucasian. My own grandfather was fair with blue eyes, and there were some things he was able to do that the “colored people” in Texas couldn’t do because he looked different. One can only question how many Mooreno people went on and considered themselves Caucasian and married and had children with Caucasians and never told to avoid persecution.
