Moorish America

Moorish America,

What kind of people do live in South America? The Spanish, the Portuguese, but chiefly the descendants of these European races who have intermarried with the Indians. Other nations have made lesser contributions, Brazil, which is only a few, days by steamer from West Africa, is one-third Negro, the crudest type of Negro of the American hemisphere. There is a strong mark of the Moor upon the Spaniard. The Arabic Moor wrought: his customs very deeply into the life of Spain. The people of Mexico and Cuba might be called Moorish Americans rather than Latin Americans. The customs, manners and heart experiences in these people of Latin America are more Moorish than Christian, more Moslem, more Arabic than Spanish.—World Outlook.
