I think it’s about time mixed people had their own category. Just saying, she’s not black, she’s not white, why is she playing a black person, Aaliyah? No more archaic 1 drop bullshit, this is the 21st century. She’s 50% black, 50% white, but we’ll know they won’t be considered her when it’s time to make a Madonna biopic.

Okay, but how would you go about it? Even first generations mixes aren’t mixed the same. Then what about someone whose DNA wise is genetically 50/50 but has two black parents like(Gates). Does he still call himself black or does he now say he’s mixed?

@Mettawork please BYE, everyone on earth is mixed. I think people should just limit it to two parents of different races because if you go back far enough “everyone” on earth is African and migrated out of Africa. I am a black person but I got my dna tested as to who on earth I relate to and my dna was all over the world, Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe, etc. But I am a black person and look black. So thats too complicated. Black means 50% one black parent at least and above. No need to create more confusion. When you look African you are black period and this girl looks African to me more than anything else. She could fit right into South Africa.
South African blacks
East African Black women-she would fit right in

Her mother is WHITE, she is MIXED, period. Her father is African American, which means OF WEST AFRICAN DESCENT,
So DARK SKINNED, her light skin and feature are the result of an interriacial marriage and she is probably even more European since AA have European ancestry.
The comparison with East Africans and South Africans is completely BS since it has been proven that these people were mixed.
I hate it when self hating blacks feel the need to claim mixed people because they don’t feel good in their black skin. I’m pretty sure you would claim me even if I am only 24% SSA

She looks a lot like one of my aunts who is 3/4 Senegambian, 1/4 Morrocan. I have a half Norwegian, Half Senegambian cousin who looks Blasian. He is always mistaken for half Japanese. His dad (who is full African) has Vietnamese eyes. Mixed people have no fixed look. You can’t always guess their ethnicity right by looking at them

How come when Zendaya was going to be Aaliyah, there was this, she’s half white and this and that. Yet when Alexandra took the role, no one said anything on here

She’s on house of anubis!! i love her!

Her mom looks white but she looks half Asian. Doesn’t make sense, I thought she was Japanese/Black or Korean/Black.

Daron July 29, 2015 at 6:34 pm

She looks half Asian.

I’d like to see a picture of her mother. She looks like every Blasian I’ve seen. There’s no way she’s half white. Maybe she’s adopted and considers her “white” mother her biological mother. Her mother must have have some Asian genes, maybe even her dad.

Well excuse me, jerk. I didn’t happen to see that message when I wrote that, unless it was added after I commented. No reason to be a smartass.

She looks VERY Oriental influenced. I bet anyone would think she’s Blasian or at least a little Chinese/Vietnamese.

M June 5, 2015 at 8:49 pm

Who says oriental anymore?? Are you from the 50s? That’s considered racist these days.

Kimmel June 10, 2016 at 6:39 am

Depends on where you are from. In England we say ‘Oriental’, ‘mixed-race’ and ‘mulatto’. Natives are fine with it. Guess it depends on the current & past issues in the given country.

Capricious April 5, 2015 at 5:30 am

Looks very Asian.

She is average looking. For some reason she is getting alot of movie rolls playing African American women , ie. Aaliyah. Some people think all biracials are pretty. She is just blaaah.

noneofyourbusiness February 6, 2015 at 8:41 am

Jealous much? She’s a very pretty girl.

midori29 February 6, 2015 at 8:50 am

Not jealous, I am just telling the truth .She is average. There are many many girls prettier than her on this site. i do not know why she is popular , likely becaus eher mom is white. I hated the fact that she playe Aaliyah in th ebiopic, she did a terribel job. She cannot act. Lots of women look better. I love Alicia keys, Halle Berry, lots of other biracials but she sucks.

midori29 February 6, 2015 at 8:51 am

She is not ugly but not pretty either. I have said other women are pretty Christina Millian, Megan Goode, etc.. I have admixtures too , so its not that.

Check7t January 28, 2015 at 9:30 pm

Looks Blasian.

noneofyourbusiness January 31, 2015 at 8:30 am

I thought the same thing.
