In Brazil, the Pardos are a mixture of Europeans, Blacks and Amerindians, varying from light to dark complexion, as used by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) in censuses since 1950. The word is Portuguese for "brown" or "grey-brown". The other classifications are "branco" (White), "negro" (Black), "amarelo" (yellow) (Asian), and "indígena" (Amerindian). The Roman Catholic Church, most often spoken of simply as the Catholic Church, is the largest Christian church, with over one billion members. ...

Pardo is a broad classification that encompasses Brazilians of mixed race ancestry, mulattos, and assimilated indigenous people ("caboclos").[2][3] Mulatto (Spanish mulato, small mule, person of mixed race, mulatto, from mulo, mule, from Old Spanish, from Latin mūlus. ... A Caboclo is a person of mixed Brazilian Indian and European ancestry. ...

Pardo began as a miscellany, or "none of the above" racial category. The first census of the 20th century to ask a colour question was the census of 1940. Colour was determined by the census enumerator, and the three options were white, black, and yellow. If the respondent did not fit into any of the categories, the enumerator simply drew a horizontal line. When the census data came to be tabulated, all responses with horizontal lines were collected into the single category of "pardo". The IBGE excluded pardo as an answer in response to the rise of European fascism at the time, as an assurance to the public that census data would not be used for discriminatory purposes.[3]

In the 1950 census, "pardo" was actually added as a choice of answer, and colour was chosen by the respondent instead of being determined by the enumerator.[3]

Unofficially, Brazilians also use a racial classification of "moreno", a word that also means "brown". In a 1995 survey, 32% of the population self-identified as "moreno", with a further 6% self-identifying as "moreno claro" ("light brown"). 7% self-identified as "pardo". Telles describes both classifications as "biologically invalid", but sociologically significant.[2] Moreno is Spanish and Portuguese for a tanned or dark or brown-skinned person. ...

Pardos had felt unclean and ashamed—bitterly aware that he was Antae and shared the blood, and even the tribe, as it happened, of the foul-tongued man who had stood up with his forbidden sword, smeared the young queen with ugly, vicious words, and then died there with those he’d killed.
Pardos simply hoped she was all right,wherever she was, and that she would come back.
Pardos sat huddled in his cloak, leaning against his pack and the rough shelter of the wall, and looked up at the far stars and the one white moon and thought about where he was in Jad’s creation.
Pardos is a multilingual whirlwind in person and a demon on the Internet, where he employs a dramatic, inventive and sometimes ungrammatical vocabulary to chronicle Canadian attempts to stop Spanish overfishing: Brian Tobin was "impertinent" and "tactless"; Canadian diplomats were "useless"; the Canadian public was "manipulated".
Pardos, upon hearing the news of the "New-Net-Show-bin", went ballistic, believing this was simply a move to heighten Tobin's "politically near-sighted glory".
Pardos is confident he is handing his successor a country where all "the bitterness and hate" towards Spain has ended.
