Yes Jane, once your skin is Black, you are Black it doesn't matter where you were born, it's all about the complexion.

To a white person any shade that's not pale is considered Black ( light skin, brown skin, darker or lighter complexion) ALL are Black.

I'll bet if you check the DNA of those you named you will find BLACK blood.

The Moors was in Europe for over 750 years.

During that time, I'll bet they got around.

Are all dark complexed people called Black?

There are a lot of dark-skinned Hispanics, Greeks, Israelites, etc; they are not Black.
