Did any of the 12 men who walked on the Moon have any non white genetic heritage?
or the total americans who flew to/ around the Moon. It least 21.
You people sure have a problem with race related questions.

It was nothing to do with Race Relations
None at all
In fact it wasn't until the Eighties when the first non white went into space
The actual truth is, one African American Qualified for the Apollo program, bit he didn't just cut it
Ed Dwight Junior
An Ace Fighter Pilot btw and well decorated
That is a fact
Had he the " Right Stuff ", we could be talking about him instead of Neil Armstrong

There were 9 trips to the Moon involving 24 men, 3 of whom went twice. They were all regarded as white but I don't think we have full family trees or genetic analysis to say any more. Ed Dwight was selected for astronaut training and its hard to say whether is failure to be selected to fly in space was due to his personal qualities or prejudice against him. Chuck Yeager who was in charge of astronaut training in the early 60s is said to have been opposed to having a black person on the course.

Oh no! We must put that right. We need a space program for blacks only!

It was a segregated time so not likely they were air force pilots
