Listed below are links to data on the Historical MYTH
of a Color-Based / Slave-Role HIERARCHY — as well
as the Urban LEGEND of Paper-Bag, Blue-Vein and
Other Allegations of Features-Based Entry ‘TESTS’
(in regards to the antebellum-era, continental U.S.):
...THE FACTS are as follows: 1)It is often a surprise
for people to learn that, in reality,there is actually No Such Thing As a "Light Skinned Black"person.
2)Very few people seem to be aware of the

effort to try to deny these Mixed-Race people their right to and
support in publicly acknowledging and also embracing their
FULL-Lineage) there is no reason that they(like
every other group on the planet -- whether Mixed-Race or not)should
