My dad was pretty dark-skinned even for Native Americans. His mom was a light brown where my dad was really dark going towards light-skinned black. His stepfather was Italian and obviously not his dad even to a 5 year old me. Not just the skin but the two looked nothing alike. My dad was lean and tall where his stepdad was short and stalky. When I was 16 my dad told me and my brother the story and showed us the news article. My dad’s father had been involved with a bank robbery in the 1950s.
