This is what all people who are considered “black” ancestors look like, this is the real black the mother of blacks, this is what they use to look like when they were brought as slaves until these nasty white men started raping everyone, now mostly every person you see that you think looks black is clearly mixed if they do not look like Alek

Well yes many did look like her, but also many didn’t. Also Full blood Africans come in lighter colors than her:
Nnamdi Asomugha here is full-blood igbo

Yes I agree with you fuzzybear44. A lot of African Americans were light skinned slaves before coming to America. The Igbos and Fulani tribes are light skinned. Also Ms. Diallo Amudu Diallo’s mom is 100 percent West African and she looks like a light skinned Ethiopian.

Ms. Diallo 100 percent West African Black
I was saying not true to the Mdelacruz poster which she is likely Hispanics and some Hispanics are totally racist, clueless when it comes to what real Africans look like they seem to think they are all extremely dark skinned with kinky hair, not true at all.

Quote( The Igbos and Fulani tribes are light skinned)

The Thing about Igbos is that they were listed in slave logs for there light color, many were like the bushmen in color( red and yellowish in skin tone). During slavery, in the islands Igbos were purposely mixed and mated with Yoruba to separate them from there own kind

Nope not true at all. Alec is an EXTREME black person most black Africans are not that dark. Black Africans come in all colors from light to dark. I am surprised on this site no one said she was part Chinese lol.

100% Black Nigerian Igbo girl video she took a dna test

Too ugly to be a model. There are some BEAUTIFUL African women out there and this trick is a model????

cwm85 August 19, 2015 at 4:17 pm

You are a very nasty human being. Care to share a picture of your ugly self?

California July 24, 2015 at 9:10 pm

Just waiting for someone to say she’s biracial, lol.

cwm85 July 31, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Is she mixed?

Anya April 14, 2012 at 5:09 am

I wish we could have a photo of Alek, I think she is so beautiful. None of my black friends rate her which I have never to understand. I worked for a Chinese company once and any time I thought a Chinese girl was pretty the other Chinese girls would say ‘Not in China she’s not!’ and they would suggest some other girl that they thought was gorgeous but I wouldn’t. So maybe it’s like that with Alek! But I think she is fabulous :) Those legs!

she’s captivating that’s for sure
