Source: The Negro Law of South Carolina (University of California-J.G. Bowman) 1848 A.D. Note: Page 9 of the source. This source is direct confirmation that their were black ancient Berbers because the "African-American" descend from them. If all Berbers were "light-skinned", then West Africa should be filled with "light-skinned" Berbers but that obviously is not the case. Some believe that the ancient Berbers were considered to be Jews and to be of Middle Eastern origins.
