It is impossible to say to which human family we belong. The larger part of the Native population has disappeared, Europeans have mixed with Indians and the Negroes, and Negroes have mixed with the Indians. We were all born of one mother America, though our fathers had different origins, and we all have differently colored skins. This dissimilarity is of the greatest significance.
— Simon Bolivar at the Congress of Angostura in 1819.(via Black Indians by William Loren Katz)
