African + Asian = Ugly

She could’ve been very pretty if she were either full black or full Asian.

These two just don’t mix well.

LucarioCooper December 30, 2015 at 12:55 pm

I think black and Asian mix well.

Samiiraa November 24, 2016 at 1:50 pm

And you’re an idiot

Looks very polynesian

mermaid June 8, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Looks like Kourtney Kardashian with darker skin.

Capricious June 25, 2015 at 10:10 pm

Lmao I just came here to say this.

Kourtney herself does look a bit Asian and African.

Maria January 9, 2012 at 2:08 pm

She does look very Korean in this photo.Great that she speaks Korean.

jasmine January 9, 2012 at 1:42 pm

i think asian people are pretty either way they end up. My mother is half korean and african american. My grandmother is full blooded korean. So that makes me a quarter korean. Amerie is pretty.

Angel Syrene January 6, 2012 at 11:52 pm

She’ look very African American she is pretty

M June 7, 2015 at 7:28 am

What an ignorant comment. I cannot believe some morons can’t tell when someone is mixed. She looks obviously mixed with Asian.

cwm85 August 16, 2015 at 2:35 pm

Trool. She looks like a darker asian woman.

Multiethnicchick September 5, 2016 at 1:22 pm

african americans can be mixed, black or in some cases, even mostly white. Because America is a stupid country that doesn’t make sense

Shay October 29, 2011 at 7:11 am

Black men get around & sleep with ALL kinds of women , white,black,Asian,Hispanic. That’s why to this day especially now in the 21st century there all so many people that are of mixed race. A Majority are half black ! Of course she has a black father it’s almost never the other way around black father Korean mother NOT Korean father black mother.

LaLa October 12, 2011 at 6:57 pm

She looks like Kourtney Kardashian. I’m not the only one that sees this?

I didn’t even notice she was half Korean, until I found out about it like last year. Her asian genes really don’t stand out that much lol, like her eyes are sort of asian-ish. But otherwise, her skin tone & everything just dominates everything else.

brittanysanchez March 5, 2011 at 9:48 pm

If u are mixed with black u are considered black. Even though I am mixed with peurto rican I still consider myself as being black I just feel that my black features are amazing especially my curves and hips. Ppl like kim k and others are really trying to be black and hook up with our black men to make half black babys which is so ridiculous. But u can mixed african american with any race and have something beautiful.

George December 24, 2011 at 8:23 pm

wow you’re stupid….

moon January 21, 2011 at 11:06 pm

yall dumb she is black. If you have black in you then you are black. Black is the most dominant trait. The only reason pple care is because she is famous if she was just another girl on the streets she would just be looked at as black from everyone

Melanie Lombardi January 22, 2011 at 3:14 pm

It doesn’t matter what ethnicity is more dominant, she’s still mixed.

fuzzybear January 23, 2011 at 1:52 am

To Moon and Melanie

First off this is just my opinion,but I don’t think it’s a dominant trait,I think it’s a dominant effect.What I’m saying is you get equal amounts of genetic material from each parent and alleles are supposed to be additive.What I’m saying is maybe either mom or pop aren’t as pure as they think.Now no offense Melanie,but white people will lie about their background.They come up with all kinds of things,like I’m black german or dutch,just to hide their black bloodline.Or maybe it’s unknown to them,like James D. Watson.He hate black people,called them stupid etc.That is until he took a DNA test and founded out he was part black.Anyhow that’s just my opinion,and opinion is not fact;but I think I might be right.

Melanie Lombardi January 23, 2011 at 7:24 am

Fuzzy; Well I don’t know why you’re telling me anything. Like I said, it doesn’t matter if your 2 or more ethnicities. Just because one is “more dominant” it doesn’t change the fact that you’re still mixed. I bet if ANYONE would go behind and study their family bloodlines we’d all be mixed! Anyhow that’s just my opinion it’s not a fact, but I think I might be right(:

fuzzybear January 23, 2011 at 8:31 am

To Melanie

I meant no offense,most of that was to Moon.Sorry to mention your name,only did because it was the both of you in the conversation,and didn’t want you to feel left out.However from you reaction,I guess you wanted to be left out

George December 24, 2011 at 8:24 pm

you should just shut up because you sound really stupid. if you are mixed YOU ARE MIXED you arent one or the other. i really REALLY despise people like you. how can you be full black if your mom is white? that makes no damn sense. get your shit together before opening your ignorant mouth.

LIL VACHA October 19, 2010 at 4:38 pm

YU SHOULD CHANGE HER DISPLAY NAME/STAGE NAME FROM AMERIE TO AMERIIE (WITH THE TWO “I’S” BECAUSE SHE CHANGED IT. SO ETHNIC FIX IT PLZ.! LOL.

It’s amazing the stupidity of those who leave comments. Don’t write something if you can’t write English and more importantly if you can’t read it.
