If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I might have a hard time believing it. I initially thought these children were white children who were slaves. I thought a whole new chapter was opening up in our history. However, turns out, they are mulatto, or as the Native Americans called them, half-breeds. Yes, they are half white, half black children.
Well, seems they wanted money for a school and thought black kids wouldn’t win over the sympathy of the white folk up north, so, they put these kids up and said they were white and needed a school. Considering their features gear them more toward appearing white, I don’t know if I’d say the people were lying to say this, especially because many half breeds, so to speak, go for white. Guess what, many dark skin people don’t blame them either, they only wish they had the choice (and not that they dislike their color, but heck, who wanna have it hard and go hungry, etc. when you have options). Anyway, they were black kids, in white or light skin. They did go to a colored school and were still treated as Niggers (as they were also called) in the south, as they had that touch of black. You know it only took a drop, what was it, 1/5 or something like that. Well, in any case, the schools got their money and blacks, be they white or dark got their education.
So, there’s one to grow on and it isn’t even Black History Month.
