Controversial messages can be posted in this message board, and if anyone is interested, they can come to the message board and take a look at them. Please DO NOT send me personal emails about the same thing.
Secondly, Br.Nerode himself was of mixed blood....his father was Indian and his mother American. So, I don't see anything 'inter-racial' in this, except that he was not "100% white".
So the quote about 'marrying a white woman' is very likely to refer to the California state laws, which prohibited "100% whites" from marrying anyone, who did not fit that profile.
Whether or not he was a 'dirty chiseler' is besides the point.
