Greetings mylady,

You ask an interesting question.  I have never thought about the SCA in 
terms of color and perhaps that is where your answer lies.  I think that 
most of us do not even care what color someone is.  The SCA is, in my 
experience, the most color blind organization I have ever seen.  We care 
more for who you are and how you act, than what your genealogy is.  I would 
say to you welcome, come join us in our quest for the Dream and see what 
personal wonders you find along the way.
