I don't watch Oprah but it was all over the news and everyplace else how their (former) prince (now living in California) was admonished about having children with his wife - they might not be white enough.
Never heard of it, but I'll take your word for it.

That was a bit later. A large part of our navy was built on criminals. They were expendable, and a ship would always come back with less crew than it started with. Long voyages, and no one knew what vitamine C was.

Along the way, as often as not, those already here thought it in their interest to not let anyone else in that didn't meet their standards (typically white/protestants).
The Netherlands is built on protestantism, and I happen to live in the Catholic part of it.
