The Moors left the Spaniards slightly more brownish and it has been difficult to them accept.

This revolves around the presence of the Moors in Spain for several centuries. It is interesting how the Spaniards have afraid to say they have a genetic heritage from any part of Africa.

Why do they think such a shame for having some legacy Moorish blood?

They should be proud of that, because Morrish civlization was, for a long time, the pearl of Europe.

I believe the dark ages ended in Europe and how the Spanish became a superpower was because of the Moors.

Spaniards are not a monolithic people. Over the centuries, the Moors, the Arabs, the Celts, the Romani (Gypsies), among others have made their way into Spain. As a consequence, some Spaniards do not look what most Americans would consider "white". However, the further north you go, like most countries in the Mediterranean, the lighter the people's features are. "Ethnic Spanish" are pale, often freckled, and light haired.

Spaniards is not a race..so how can they be white or black or Asian? It's only a title for one who holds Spanish citizenship and/or a native of Spain.
As far as why they aren't proudly proclaiming Moor blood.is for the same reasons African Americans reject any traces of White American blood..nobody with an ounce of pride wants to acknowledge invaders... Muslims/Moor presence in Spain wasn't a history of racial tolerance.

A major factor behind Spain's imperial power was their participation in the Trans-Atlantic African Slave Trade. They were, behind Portugal, the largest importers of African slaves to the New World.

So that would suggest, based upon your statement, that African slaves were bought by African-Europeans....

That's a sad thought.

The Spaniards are white as my teeth, ya dumb Yank ghetto monkey. ;-) The only dark part in them comes from Gypsies. ;-D & then just a little drop of mixed Arab & Berber blood. ;-D & the only truth is Spaniards became really rich after slaughterin' all Maures & kickin''em even in N.Africa. Yet the most iportant thing they learnt from Maures was how to easily enslave sub-Saharan W.Africans. ;-D This is the only real crucial legacy Maures left 'em, & opened the doors of Africa for Spaniards & Portuguese to enter. ;-)

Yes Spaniards are white and they don't look any different from any other Europeans. Genetically and phenotypically they cluster with all other Europeans, meaning they are just as white as all other Euros.

Maybe, I think the slave trade is over hyped. They couldn't transported that many people over like that.

You cannot use a nationality as a race.

Any 'Moor' blood they have, fool, is minimal, their genetic make up is similar to all other Europeans which is why they cluster closer to Europeans and Not 'Moors', moron. The only idiot around here is you. Now go back to school, socketpuppet.

Most Moors weren't black, and DNA indicates there wasn't a whole lot of mixingin Iberia.

The Moors were imperialist pirates, always fighting among themselves, and as all Muslims saw whatever was good in their society destroyed by creeping fundamentalism.

Catch a clue, Muzboy.

You know nothing of history, so your “beliefs” are uninteresting.

The “Dark Ages” were in large part prolonged by the Moors. They were ended by Irish monks spreading literacy, and by re-establishing contact with Byzantine once the Moors were pushed out of the way.

The Moors were a pain in everyone's ass.

It doesn't set them apart at all, moron.

Their Moorish blood is minimal, and most Moors were non-black Berbers in any case, and so there is really no noticeable effect on the Spanish population by the Moors.

They are not black, that's right.

Go read a book, boy.
