Wednesday January 23rd on Real MOORS Talk about: What did Abraham Lincoln know about the MOORS?
"My client is not a Negro, though it is a crime to be a Negro
--no crime to be born with a black skin. But my client is not a Negro. His skin may not be as
white as ours, but I say he is not a Negro, though he may be a Moore."-
"Mr. Lincoln," interrupted Judge Davis, scarcely able to restrain a smile, "you mean a Moor
-(M-o-o-r) not Moore, (M-o-o-r-e)."
"Well, your Honor, Moor -(M-o-o-r) not Clifton H. Moore," replied Mr. Lincoln, with a sweep
of his long arm toward the table where Moore and I sat.
"I say my client may be a Moor, but he is not a Negro."
