re: #282 HappyWarrior

It’s fascinating to me. I’ve noticed it even on the micro level even within my SiL’s family. That family tree is one I would love to research.

My family on the Cuban side is mostly “white” in that we have pretty clear lines back to Spain (in fact some of my mom’s aunts moved to Spain after the revolution). But we believe my mom’s paternal grandfather might have immigrated to Cuba from the Middle East. And there is a fairly long history of racism within a lot of Latin countries, the Spanish and Portuguese empires basically created a caste system with whites (Europeans) on top. And since we are often molded by things that happened long before we were born…
