"White,” in the colonies, became not just a badge of social and economic privilege “serving to designate those who until 1650 had been called ‘Christians’ and afterwards ‘English’ or ‘free men’, but a moral attribute, a means by which social hegemony was naturalized. “Black” or “African”, by contrast, became synonymous with slave, so much so that free black people - still a sizable presence in early 17th-century America - were later forced to prove that they were free."
