Not sure if this counts as a correction, but
Her paternal grandfather was Hamilton Amechina Madekwe, who appears to have been Ibo (Igbo/Eboe/Heebo/various other spellings).

It looks like she got just enough Nigerian blood that she’ll continue to defy aging.

Alyx September 5, 2016 at 9:44 pm

She is 1/4 black but she looks half black.

Hill April 28, 2017 at 11:32 am

i think it’s a good thing. 1/4 black people look like albinos.

fuzzybear44 April 29, 2017 at 12:39 am

What quarter bloods have you seen that look like albinos?

fuzzybear44 April 29, 2017 at 12:41 am

it happens

WTF August 14, 2014 at 3:47 pm

she reminds me of vanessa hudgens for some reason. she looks hispanic

Your Mom August 9, 2014 at 7:23 pm

She Is Pretty. She Looks Half Black Instead Of A Quarter.
Kind Of Reminds Me Of A Girl I Know. She’s A Quarter Black, But Still Looks Half. Her Brother Is White-Passing. They Don’t Look Related. Weird How That Works Out.

ssempre August 5, 2014 at 8:02 pm

It’s so weird how some people who are 1/4 black will look like a person of color, but others will look completely white. Shailene Woodley is about 1/4 black but she looks white, this girl however clearly looks like a person of color (She looks very mixed to me).

ssempre August 5, 2014 at 8:11 pm

but is Shailene Woodley even 1/4 black? idgi

Your Mom August 9, 2014 at 7:24 pm

Shailene Is Not A Quarter Black. She’s Less Than That. Both Of Her Parents Look White As Hell.

weedie May 30, 2015 at 3:36 pm

Well Shailene Woodley may not be a quarter black, but Troian Bellasario, Pete Wentz, Jessica Szhor and Wentworth Miller all are, and they all look much whiter than she does. Genetics can be a mystery. Either way, she’s a stunning beauty!!

annfast June 25, 2014 at 1:33 am

She very beautiful.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:09 pm

She could pass as Dominican or Egyptian.

fuzzybear44 June 25, 2014 at 5:13 am

Seeing how both groups ranges in color(from black to white),I don’t see how that would be hard to do

J.J. September 15, 2014 at 9:29 am

a person can not simply look dominican or any other country in the america’s for the matter, as the america’s are big melting pots of descendants of european settlers, black slaves, asian immigration and the natives. it’s like saying someone with light brown hair and blue eyes looks australian…..

fuzzybear44 September 15, 2014 at 7:06 pm

@j.j

Just to put this in.The melting pot consist of European settlers, also European slaves, African slaves, African immigrants, Asian immigrants, Asian slaves, Native Americans, Native American slaves.Just to be fair

J.J. September 15, 2014 at 7:58 pm

understandable, i was merely simplifying

fuzzybear44 September 15, 2014 at 9:21 pm

@j.j

sorry it read that way,I meant no offense

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:09 pm
Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:09 pm

yeah she looks mixed

Princess June 7, 2014 at 8:14 pm

Beautiful white girl.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:08 pm
WTF June 7, 2014 at 2:23 pm

she’s a cute chick. she looks more like 50% black instead of only 25%. african genes are hella strong

shobohunter May 17, 2014 at 4:29 am

does she(or someone) changed her ethnic background??
I thought she was Pakistani. Hollywood retard say anything to look or sound exotic. lol

ihatemostpeople February 13, 2014 at 2:20 pm

She looks exotic.

eldiablo1313 January 9, 2014 at 6:29 pm

She definitely is mixed!

AnonymousPerson December 21, 2013 at 4:42 pm

Dang she’s only a quarter black, but she looks really black.

Erica December 27, 2013 at 6:21 pm

What? “She looks black” you mean african? No. She looks mixed and that’s what she is.

AnonymousPerson January 4, 2014 at 6:43 am

I STAND BY MY OPINION. She looks blacker than some biracials that I’ve seen.

Freword April 21, 2014 at 4:20 pm

I will say no

scott December 27, 2013 at 7:04 pm

she looks mixed

AnonymousPerson January 8, 2014 at 3:30 pm

Yeah obviously, but she still looks 50% black rather than only 25%. She looks like she could be Halle Berry’s sister.

notracist January 30, 2014 at 1:39 am

well, genetics doesn’t work like that :) you probably should have paid more attention in science class, AnonymousPerson.

eldiablo1313 January 16, 2014 at 1:23 pm

@ [email protected]

( never dare to intrude in my comments k)

In order for me to have intruded in your conversation,there would have to be someone else taking with you.

You original comment,was just you talking:

[email protected] June 22, 2013 at 12:34 am
she looks hot but has a nigerian and a east asian look

Also to threatening someone you can do nothing to,is definitely an adolescent mindset.However it’s obvious we want have a civil conversation,so I will end it.

fuzzybear44 June 24, 2013 at 5:06 am

correction: talking to you

Anasie June 25, 2013 at 9:34 pm

Yip that BUT of yours indicates problems.

karinblack December 16, 2012 at 10:17 pm

Her mother is English and her father is half Nigerian half Swiss. She’s only a quarter black but she looks biracial. Beautiful woman.

fuzzybear44 June 22, 2013 at 4:38 am

@karinblack

(She’s only a quarter black but she looks biracial.)

That’s because there is no fixed look

Ariana decir-gracias! October 15, 2011 at 5:39 am

OMG I though she was white!

Tom October 17, 2011 at 11:18 pm

Nah go and google her, she definitely looks mixed raced.
