These sources confirm yet again that the Sephardic Jews were at times listed as “mulatto“. Remember, mulatto was based upon visible appearance in previous generations so a light-skinned black person (light-skinned is extremely relative depending on the viewer) was called it or they were called mulattos because people knew they were of black ancestry and another ethnicity (e.g. English) and/or nationality, as well.
