Birth Name: Beyoncé Giselle Knowles

Place of Birth: Houston, Harris, Texas, U.S.

Date of Birth: September 4, 1981

*African-American (father)

Beyoncé, also known as Beyoncé Knowles, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was a member of the top-selling American R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, along with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and also originally LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson.

Beyoncé is the daughter of Tina Knowles (born Célestine Ann Beyincé), a fashion designer, and Mathew C. Knowles, a businessperson and talent manager. Her sister is singer and actress Solange Knowles. She is married to rapper and music producer Jay Z, with whom she has three children. Beyoncé is a step-sister of actress Bianca Lawson. Her mother is married to Bianca’s father, actor Richard Lawson.

Beyoncé’s father is African-American. Beyoncé’s maternal grandparents were French-speaking Louisiana Creoles, with roots in New Iberia; their ancestry included African and French (including French ancestors who lived in Canada). Through her mother’s line, Beyoncé is a great-great-great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard. Beyoncé is also of approximately 1/32 Irish ancestry, and has distant Spanish roots on her mother’s side, as well (at least one of her great-great-great-great-great-grandfathers, Juan Tomas Francisco Garrido, was Spanish). Her name, Beyoncé, is a tribute to her mother’s maiden name, Beyincé.

Beyoncé has said that she has Nigerian ancestry.

Beyoncé has also been described as having Cherokee Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this ancestry has been verified/documented. No Cherokee Native American ancestors appear on publicly available family trees of Beyoncé’s mother.

Beyoncé does not speak French or Spanish, but she has sung in Spanish before.

A picture of Beyoncé’s maternal grandparents can be seen here.

Beyoncé’s paternal grandfather is Matthew Knowles (the son of Taylor Knowles and Girlie/Gurlie Mae Inez Miller). Matthew was born in Alabama. Taylor was the son of James Isaac Knowles and Sarah Elizabeth Dixon. Girlie was the daughter of Prophet Miller and Jane Hall.

Beyoncé’s paternal grandmother is Lou Helen Hogue (the daughter of Davis/Dave Hogue and Hester Moore). Lou was born in Alabama. Davis was the son of Jim Hogue and Rosetta Moore. Hester was the daughter of Pinkney Madison Moore and Arenia Goree.

Beyoncé’s maternal grandfather was Lumis Albert Beyincé (the son of Alexandre Beyincé and Marie Amelie Oliver Broussard). Lumis was born in Abbeville, Louisiana. Alexandre was the son of Jean Boyancé/Beyincé, who was born in France, and of Angéline Élizabeth Green. Marie Amelie was the daughter of Olivier Despanet Broussard and Alphonsine Boutte.

Beyoncé’s maternal grandmother was Agnès/Agnèz DeRouen/Deréon (the daughter of Eugène-Gustave DeRouen and Odelia Broussard). Agnès was born in Decambre, Louisiana. Eugène-Gustave was the son of Gustave DeRouen and Marie-Estelle Gary, who was of part Spanish descent. Odelia was the daughter of Eloi Rosemond Broussard and Celestine Josephine Lessee/Lesse/Lesser. A picture of Beyoncé’s great-grandfather Eugène-Gustave can be seen here.

In this video she says her ancestors is from Nigeria:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2xnxZRl7EE

Maybe she took a dna test or she knows better about her ancestors than most Aframs do?

fuzzybear44 November 1, 2017 at 1:49 pm

It’s not really a surprise that she would have Nigerian ancestors. Lots of Creoles or black Americans in general have blood ties to that country

andrew November 2, 2017 at 10:36 am

That country did not exist before 1960

fuzzybear44 November 3, 2017 at 2:55 pm

Okay the country name didn’t exist, but the people living in the area did, and it was called something else. Italy had people living in it before it got the name. Most of the African country’s names are new, so what’s your point?

alexgxo February 24, 2017 at 9:11 pm

Her mother whose black in identity, and her moms brother and sisters barley look black, like quadroons, especially with straight hair. He father looks like average African American,
Mostly black but you can see something that may be European influence.

Quote(Her mother whose black in identity, and her moms brother and sisters barley look black, like quadroons, especially with straight hair.)

Not usual for a Creole family. You could have 5 kids in one family, and none of them would be the same color, or have the same type of hair. and can have a mix of facial features demonstrating their MGM heritage. Pretty common thing. I’ve seen it in AA families to(little less common)

luckystar February 13, 2017 at 10:28 am

Her mother maybe mixed, but she and most people in USA follows one drop rule
Listen to Tina Taught Me (Interlude) by Solange and youll see her mother saying ” im a proudly black woman”

alexgxo February 24, 2017 at 9:17 pm

Yeah with straight hair her mom looks like a quadroon. But if she claims she’s black in identity; since race is a confusing subject, then fine by me. I still view Beyoncé as mixed, maybe around 60 percent African, 40 percent European or other. But her daughter can probably consider herself black and more people wouldn’t find it odd, cause her daughter is hypothetically around the same your average AA is usually.

fuzzybear44 February 25, 2017 at 2:38 am

@alexgxo

Quote( I still view Beyoncé as mixed)

I understand what you’re saying, but you might as well include most of the black people in this country. I mean most are not pure, and if you’re not pure you’re what? Even Bey daughter would be above the avg, and that’s even if Jay was the Avg. Jay can be just as mixed as Bey, who knows. I mean even if I strongly disagree with (Luckystar) interpretation of things, I still see Bey as a black woman, because that’s what I see all the time. However, that’s just how I grew up, see her how you want.

fuzzybear44 February 25, 2017 at 2:23 am

NO one follows any ODR. If that was the case I would be calling a whole bunch of white people black(Ben Affleck, Johnny Depp,Jimmy Kimmel etc for example)

luckystar November 10, 2016 at 2:36 pm

Beyonce’s mother is black
Ive reading her instagram, she consider herself black
Theres no such thing as creole on census, its culture, not an ethnicity or race

savanna November 10, 2016 at 6:27 pm
luckystar November 11, 2016 at 4:39 am

@savanna
Your source is ethnicity celebs, creole are count as african american on census.

fuzzybear44 November 11, 2016 at 1:45 am

@luck

Creole historically is an Ethnicity although it is now attached to African American. White French simply adopted the term, however the Creoles were always the mixed -bloods.The Louisiana Creoles were a separate group from African Americans for a long time. Originally coming from Haiti They developed their own language. They had their own history in this country, foods, type of music etc. Also they were a certain blood mixture, of French or Spanish(or both), African, and many times native. Later on Asian, Italian and varied other Euro groups came in. African Americans usually were English, Irish , German, Dutch etc from the beginning

luckystar November 11, 2016 at 4:45 am

Usa census only have those groups: african american, hispanic, white hispanic, white american, asian, two or more races (mixed), native american and hawaii people. Theres no such thing as creole group, they are african american, and italians are white americans.

bablah November 11, 2016 at 5:53 am

So your solution is to instead of Louisiana creole and Italian we use African American and White American? Or the super specific category of ”Other Asian” that includes both Hmongs and Pakistanis.

If you don’t like this site’s terminology, it’s your prerogative. But please stop trying to convince us that US Census is the be all, end all of ethnic classification (it’s reeeeeeeally not).

madman November 11, 2016 at 8:00 am

The censuses doesn’t define what ethnicities exists. Louisiana Creoles constitutes their own group because of their cultural, linguistic, and ancestral heritage, not necessarily shared by African Americans.

luckystar November 11, 2016 at 5:03 pm

Whatever you think
Creole are african americans by census and thats how her mother feels like cause i saw her recently interview and instagram of black matters lives
Theres no creole Luisiana category on census lol some of them can be on mixed race (te or more races) group, and many of them are considered just african americans. Like italians are considered white american by census
Creole are culture, there are even whites, those are just french

fuzzybear44 November 12, 2016 at 1:45 am

@luck

First off, I am of Creoles ancestry(Louisiana born). Almost All my family, comes from there. I answer to both AA and Creole, However African American wasn’t even on the census until after the civil rights movement. However Creoles were in Louisiana centuries before that. Just because white law maker don’t want to recognize a culture that strange to them, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist .Before being called African Americans on the Census. , blacks were called by many names( Moor, Negro, Mulatto, Mestizo, Colored, Black, and now African American). Here’s something about how Creoles lived in other place during the history of the U.S.:
http://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/2015/12/15/when-louisiana-creoles-arrived-in-texas-were-they-black-or-white/ideas/nexus/

English whites when coming to Louisiana called Creoles mulattoes. The French and other blacks people called those mixed blood people (Creoles), and most not some were of mixed blood

For centuries, black people weren’t even consider human by law, we were 1/3 of a man , just property. Some laws had blacks as non- citizens

The Census change it rules often in the past, about who was white, and who wasn’t. From state to state, from decade to decade . Here is an example of how screw up the Census was:
http://www.motherjones.com/blue-marble/2008/08/primary-sources-1940-census-white

Quote( Like italians are considered white american by census)

Italians are consider white now, but not always:
http://fusion.net/story/213123/on-columbus-day-lets-remember-that-italians-werent-always-white-in-america/

Quote(Creole are culture, there are even whites, those are just French)

Creoles is a culture and a certain bloodline for the mixed black people, and whites. It our historical traditions, and shared history , which is what an Ethnicity means-an ethnic group; a social group that shares a common and distinctive culture, religion, language, or the like

madman November 12, 2016 at 2:41 am

African American wasn’t even a category on censuses. As bablah said, if you go by census, then we should stop using Irish, German, English, etc. and just write “White American”. I think more specificity is always better. And many people, white and black, would define themselves as just Americans, that doesn’t mean we should change the ethnicity of every American to just “American”.

If you really want to go by how she defines herself, Beyonce says that her mother is Creole here:
https://youtu.be/1ZDEX2ggvao?t=43s

Culture is the important part of ethnic classification. I think it makes a difference worth acknowledging that the Creoles spoke French and not (always) English.

luckystar November 11, 2016 at 5:17 pm

You can hear here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2bR7D6bhBMU
Tina saying: “I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being Black. And that’s the thing that I guess I get emotional about, because, I’ve always known that. I’ve always been proud to be Black. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it, just…”

What is your point right now? Creole are counting as black on usa census

luckystar November 12, 2016 at 4:09 am

Of course beyonce says she is creole cause she is
Its a culture, not race
If it was a rã e she would say ” My mother is mixed”
While tina claims herself into black RACE:
: “I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being Black. And that’s the thing that I guess I get emotional about, because, I’ve always known that. I’ve always been proud to be Black. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it, just…”
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2bR7D6bhBMU

And italians are considered white now on census but has always been an ethnicity, not culture, you cant be an ethnicuty if you mix two or more races

luckystar November 12, 2016 at 4:13 am

If it was a race* and all the matters is 2016 laws

luckystar December 15, 2016 at 2:04 pm

@fuzzybear44 thefore, tina and beyonce are blacks, and tina already told to be proud to be BLACK, not mixed

savanna November 12, 2016 at 9:07 am

Is Tina supposed to say “I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being Louisiana Creole, including African, French, Acadian/French-Canadian, as well as distant Irish and Spanish. And that’s the thing that I guess I get emotional about, because, I’ve always known that. I’ve always been proud to be Louisiana Creole, including African, French, Acadian/French-Canadian, as well as distant Irish and Spanish. Never wanted to be nothing else. Loved everything about it, just…” ?

luckystar November 12, 2016 at 7:54 pm

Tina says in that video: im proud to be Black
Thats all.

luckystar November 12, 2016 at 8:11 pm

She could say ” I’ve always been proud to be Creole. ” instead black, according to you all. But she considered herself black and thats all.

luckystar November 12, 2016 at 8:15 pm

Tina dont considered herself mixed race or something, she probably see creole as a sub group of black people.
You can hear here tina saying: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2bR7D6bhBMU “I think part of it is accepting that it’s so much beauty in being Black.

Saying she’s proud to black, doesn’t mean she’s not also proud to be Creole. If she was not proud of her heritage, she wouldn’t have taught her daughters about it. Beyoncé wouldn’t be on a video talking about it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0JBBQ6R1b8

Tina being a proud black women of Creole ancestry, is same as you being a proud white woman of Italian ancestry, which would make you different from a proud white woman of French ancestry. Is it really that hard for you to understand?

Here are other Creoles:

the first video, is a smaller version of bigger one. In the bigger version, you hear Creoles saying how proud they are to be black people

There’s another group of Black people who have their own Language and culture within the bigger African American culture , That’s not on the census either They are Called (Gullah/Geechee Nation):

ashash November 13, 2016 at 4:47 pm

Creole is an ethnicity. They have their own culture and language and are related to each other. But yes, Beyoncé is more black than anything. No one’s denying that.

alexgxo February 24, 2017 at 9:13 pm

Creole usually means nowadays European and African descent.

Quote(*I think people are confused about what real black people look like we black people come in ALL colors naturally without mixture blacks can mutate on their own, we all came from Africa)

That’s what I think people seem to forget, that everyone(so far that the evidence shows) came from Africans. That there were environmental adaptations for what ever reason(Just like with other animals). That’s why there are white people. They have it in theirs heads, that mutations can only happen once. People have lived outside of Africa for thousands of years, and for whatever reason many migrated back . There different environmental climates in Africa, not just extreme heat .All these factors play into why Africans are not all the same colors, and people don’t seem to understand that

Tina doesnt look european
she only would fit in Puerto Rico or Brazil. Her phenotype is tri racial.

“Oh please, AA’s are no different than you Italians. ”
First of all, we italians are white
We have white skin colour, some can have tanned skin or light skin
Never brown or black. We have caucasian skull and features, “good” hair, caucasian noses…

fuzzybear44 June 14, 2016 at 12:24 am

You proved my point, look at how you got so defensive. Here you are (I’m white, I got white skin blah blah blah). I never said you weren’t white, so who are you trying to convince(me or yourself). So scared that you think someone is going to think you’re not white

Quote(Youll never found someone like her in spain or whatever.)

I forgot, do don’t usually know what you’re talking about. Europe is full of mixed bloods(Spain , Germany France etc). Actually look next time

Since someone says she looks olive european i have to say you all are wrong
Tina can not fit in spain, she looks puerto rican, brazilian….

luckystar June 14, 2016 at 3:14 pm

Native-born Spanish citizens of all ethnic groups make up 86% of the total population, and 14% are immigrants. Among the immigrants, around 57% of them come from Spain’s former colonies in Latin America (including those from Cuba, Argentina, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Chile and Uruguay), Africa and Asia Philippines. The rest are mostly Eastern European (especially Romanians, Bulgarians, Russians, Serbians, Croatians, Bosnians, Ukrainians and Albanians)
She would be considered immigrant in spain, nothing less

You seem to be going all over the place. I never mention anything about Tina, so I don’t know how you even got on that subject. However being uncommon, is not the same as not being there. These ladies are examples of mulatto Spain born citizens from Spanish mothers:

she doesnt look spanish, since people from spain are white, if she does look southern european why she is not considered white in world? Because all europeans native are caucasian. Black people in france are not considered french by white people, dont you remember about Flora Coquerel issues?

“I’m not a racist but shouldn’t the Miss France contest only be open to white girls?” to “Fuck, a n***er” or “Death to foreigners.”

Quote(she doesnt look spanish, since people from spain are white, if she does look southern european why she is not considered white in world?)

Well first I just proved that not all native born people from Spain are white. Now the mulattoes and the full blacks maybe in the minority, but they are still there. Plus the full blacks seem to be breeding into the population.

Quote( Black people in france are not considered french by white people, dont you remember about Flora Coquerel issues?

“I’m not a racist but shouldn’t the Miss France contest only be open to white girls?” to “Fuck, a n***er” or “Death to foreigners.”)

Now you jump to France, pls pick one country and stick with it.

You guys crack me up with that (I’m not racist, BUT)

You Europeans are very funny people. You come like a tidal wave into other people countries, take them over and call yourselves native to that land. Yet a foreigner comes to Europe, and no matter how many generations of that person family are born there, they never seen as natives

Now as for Flora Coquerel issues? I don’t look at beauty pageant however ,Yes she had every right to represent France. Her father is French, and she was born there(full white or not). If the French people don’t want a half black winning, then they better find some better looking white girls

The french needs to shut their mouths, after what their country did in Africa. Testing nuclear bombs on the population, and the other things they did there

luckystar June 16, 2016 at 7:18 am

No, you did not show me natives, you showed me half spanish born half spanish and half foreign. Native spanish belong to white people, and it is on their census: The CIA Factbook (2011) gives a racial description of “composite of Mediterranean and Nordic types” under “ethnic groups” instead of the usual breakdown of ethnic composition. Thats a spanish native ethnicity

luckystar June 16, 2016 at 7:22 am

Native spanish means spanish people by race and nationality, not only nationality
The same way white american arent considered native american, they are only americans by nationality. French people are right, since black people belong to africa.

So by your logic, this woman here:
http://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/galleries/x701/53109.jpg
Should not have been allowed to represent Argentina, because she is a foreigner. Did you protest, and say there should have been a native woman representing the country? What about Miss Chile (María Belén Jerez Spuler) isn’t she a foreigner to that country, but she was allowed to represent that country. Miss Brazil (Marthina Brandt), I know she was born in the country, but obviously she’s a foreigner. However you or anybody else didn’t say any thing

Also by your logic, you white people aren’t native to European:
http://politicalblindspot.com/scientists-reveal-the-first-european-faces-were-not-white/
the group that became you people only arrived about 7-8,000 yrs ago. Before that time, Dark skin Africans were in Europe. Your group being bigger merged into them. So by your logic, you white people are foreigners to Europe, and you shouldn’t call yourselves Europeans(by your logic).

”Before that time, Dark skin Africans were in Europe. Your group being bigger merged into them. So by your logic, you white people are foreigners to Europe, and you shouldn’t call yourselves Europeans(by your logic).”

Whet? Damn, American education never ceases to amaze me.
Those dark skin Africans turned white during thousand of years of individual evolutions in Europe. White people didn’t come from somewhere to Europe. They became white IN EUROPE.

luckystar June 17, 2016 at 3:59 pm

Its funny how yoi didnt makes sense. Argentina is not an homogeneous country like Spain or Japan. An Argentine can be white, black or mongoloid, plus everybody is immigrant in argentina unless if you are indigenous.

The article says (Pale complexions were brought to Europe from the Near East).This is what I was quoting .It also stated that (it seems that the white skin of most modern Europeans did not evolve in Europe at all.) By this information, it seems people came into Europe with light skin already . while another wave came in with a different gene about 2500 yrs later that made them lighter still. Therefore suggesting that while light skin spread in Europe, it didn’t start there:

@luck

It’s the same thing you said . You said white american aren’t considered native american, they are only americans by nationality. Even thou the United States is not homogeneous either, it can be white, black or mongoloid or combos. Therefore the same thing goes for the white people in Argentina, since they are not indigenous. So since you say Ms.France who was born in france to a white French father, can’t represent france because she is half black. Therefore Ms.Argentina, should not have been able to represent Argentina since she is white and not native American

luckystar June 18, 2016 at 6:38 am

Argentina make part of the new world, a country of colonies
Not an homogeneous country like Spain
Immigrants cant represent a country who belong to white people

bablah June 18, 2016 at 8:14 am

@fuzzybear44
The link you posted is a bit confusing. Says Middle Easterners brought light skin to south and central Europe between 7 000 and 9 000 years ago, but at the same time says north Europeans mostly had light skin 7 700 years ago. Then it mentions Yamnaya culture which is (surprise, surprise) between Middle East and Northern Europe (it’s still in Europe, Eastern Europe, that is).
It would make more sense to come to conclusion that these shared genes between one population and the other emerging at same time has something to do with populations located between them. The article fails to mention the connection between these two populations that are pretty far away from each other.
Then again, it’s Daily Mail. They tend to report sensationalist stuff.

fuzzybear44 June 19, 2016 at 12:44 am

@luckystar

Cut it out, you just don’t want to admit your double standard. Argentina was a homogeneous country of natives , until you white Immigrants came and took it over. Therefore, you white Immigrants cant represent a country that belong to native people.

luckystar June 19, 2016 at 2:29 am

@uzzybear44

Yes we can, because mostly people are white in argentina.

fuzzybear44 June 20, 2016 at 1:24 am

@luck

No you can’t you’re Immigrants , you’re not native to that land. Also the only reason you guys are the majority, is because you followed the European conquest, I mean colonization handbook. Which is to kill off the indigenous people by either( disease or bullets). Try to breed them out if killing them doesn’t work. Them claim the land for yourself

She doesn’t bleach her skin ! she’s always been very light skinned. Stop being jealous and frustrated. Her mother is creole from Louisiana, look at her grandparents, they were very light, her grandfather was almost white, he looks like a quadroon. Quit the hate hun

midori29 February 10, 2016 at 9:35 am

@Andrew, both grandparents on Beyonces mom and dads side, all four are black people, African Americans. There are no recent white ancestors. Also creoles in Louisianna are the same as African Americans. Beyonce just came out golden brown skinned in tone.

fuzzybear44 February 10, 2016 at 10:32 am

There was a cultural difference between Africans Americans and Creoles(from Louisiana), Also certain European bloodlines. However both groups got mixed up pretty good, although Creoles many times were more likely to voluntarily mixed( they had the whiter is better fever)

Samiiraa March 25, 2016 at 1:16 pm

Her grandfather looks more white than black. And Tina could pass for an olive skinned European. I don’t understand why AAs don’t want to accept the fact that she has a mixed heritage. She is probably more black than white like 70% black but she is still mixed.

fuzzybear44 March 26, 2016 at 12:01 am

@Samiiraa

Well I think they do accept her mixed heritage. However they’re also from mixed bloodlines , and therefore probably don’t see her as being all that special. The AA European blood percentages are all over the place

fuzzybear44 February 10, 2016 at 10:12 am

It’s what I thought, traits past down through the generations. No different than what you would see in thousands of other families over there

midori29 February 10, 2016 at 10:33 am

@Fuzzybear, agreed. You know what is funny. My grandfather on my dads side, was two shades lighter than Beyonces grandfather with near straight black hair and green eyes and he was still considered black. My grandmother on my moms side was lighter than Beyonces grandmom with waist length “indian hair” and copper golden skin. She still considered herself black too. Not to mention where are the pics of Beyonces darker black grandparents from her dads side? Its all done for show to sppeal to simple naive people who think all black people are the color of tar. And dont realize we come in light and dark skins.

fuzzybear44 February 10, 2016 at 10:59 am

@midori29

That’s not unusual, My mother jokes with my Aunt all the time. My aunt is basically a blond hair green eyed white woman, but she would curse you lower than 6 dogs if you called her white. At a recent funeral my other older Aunts on my father side looked like a bunch of old white women, but don’t called them that. So that pride in being black is strong. Also you’re right, where is the black side of her family?

savanna February 10, 2016 at 1:48 pm
Dogg January 30, 2016 at 7:06 am

If I’m not mistaken, African-Americans are around 20% European on average. So let’s say that her father is about 80 to 85% black.
I reckon her mother’s about 35% black. This would make Beyoncé over 55% Black.

fuzzybear44 January 31, 2016 at 12:38 am

Actually it’s 3-20%, and her is mom is mostly likely in the upper 60 – 70 range. Mostly likely the skin color is a family trait, that was pass down. It’s not uncommon for a Creole to have light skin, and not have a white relative for 3 or 4 generations
Tom joyner here is 66% black
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-qyhoXZWIla0/Vfvl1KlcLGI/AAAAAAABKBY/0OMI0z5HacU/s1600/tom_joyner.png

midori29 February 8, 2016 at 2:07 pm

@Dogg , youre overthinking this. Beyonce is like 75 percent subsharan black at the least. Beyonces dad is NOT an African America, he is from the Bahamas. He moved to America. Bahamian people are usually very very black. Beyonces mom is Haitian descent. She straightens her hair.

slowdive January 29, 2016 at 1:51 pm

60% SSA, 30% European, and 10% Amerindian. Her father almost looks totally West African although her mom is (clearly) predominately European.

She’s triracial (in my opinion) like a lot of Creoles and her not being of fully of African-American even solidifies her as being mixed. However the gal looks whiter & whiter every time I see her too.

fuzzybear44 January 29, 2016 at 10:27 pm

(60% SSA, 30% European, and 10% Amerindian)

Could be, could be not, she could be more African than you think. Also African American encompasses different groups including Creoles.

Dogg January 30, 2016 at 6:59 am

Her father could very well be at least 20% European. When I watch videos on Youtube of black people sharing their dna results, a lot of the dark-skinned blacks can turn out to be a quarter white. Conversely, I’ve seen black people who I would’ve assumed were mixed-race and they turn out to be 3/4 black.

Dogg January 30, 2016 at 7:09 am

Her mum is probably at least 30% black.

midori29 February 1, 2016 at 8:49 am

@Dogg you dont seem to know much about admixture or dna. Her mom wears fake hair just like Beyonce . Her mom is ALOT more than 30 percent black. I would hive Beyonces mom about 65 percent percent subsharan West African, similiar to the former Miss America Vanessa Williams. Beyonce has no relatives of fully different races for like 100 years back.

midori29 February 8, 2016 at 9:17 am

Her mom does NOT look predominantly European. You dont know black people. Firstly Beyonces mom wears fake hair weaves too. Beyonces mom is like 65 to 70 percent subsaharan black and her dad is black. Beyonce is i would say 75 to 85 percent subsharan black African. Thats my honest opinion.

midori29 February 8, 2016 at 2:09 pm

Beyonces mom does NOT look predominantly European, she looks predominantly subsaharan black African. She straightens her hair.

Someone can give me more information of Beyonce’s Irish and Spanish ancestry. I didn’t find it in anyone of the sources available in this website.

Because it does not exist. Beyonce is just really a black woman with slightly lighter skin, thats it and fake hair plus a very good make up artist.

NitPickyOne November 29, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Beyonce is literally the only black person on this site who was actually researched. Interesting.

midori29 January 7, 2016 at 10:40 am

Why is it relevant to mention that Beyonces great great great great great great great grandfather was Spanish,, thats a heck of a long long time ago. People want to make this average looking woman without makeup and weaves, so mixed. She is just a light skinned black woman. She has no other races in her family tree for centuries. Her mom is black too. You dont have to go back in my family tree even that far to find another race. Thats reaching a little too much. Beyonce annoys me.

Mdelacruz16 January 7, 2016 at 11:48 pm

you are a very ignorant racist bitch and must look very basic and not liked in your culture.

I have seen you saying the same thing on other mixed peoples comments, anyone with common sense knows “light skin” is not a black african featre, that’s a feature from native americans, white mixed people so of course she has black, she also has white and native in her, its obvious to a person with common sense who isnt a fuckin little flat ass asian bitch commenting on these pages.

Whatever you fuckin are she is mixed her, her mom looks mixed too and has very light eyes, this is not your average “black african feature” unless she happens to be evolving which i doubt.

if you do a DNA test on Beyonce it will NOT say 100% black or african , you dumb piece of shit

midori29 January 8, 2016 at 12:16 pm

Wow you are the only ignorant one. You must be part of Beyonces Pr team. You got serious issues. I dont consider Beyonce mixed, sorry. She is black. I have white and indian in my ancestry too. I am black like Beyonce so how can I be racist??, lol. They are prettier black women than Beyonce.

midori29 January 8, 2016 at 12:19 pm

Most black people are not 100 percent black . Beyonces mom looks like my black relatives. Beyonce has two black parents. Get over it. I dont consider her mixed. Mix to me is parents of different races. Beyonces mom is BLACK . The fake blonde hair and bleach makes Beyonce look less black but Beyonce is BLACK to me, not mixed.

midori29 January 8, 2016 at 12:25 pm

@medlacruz, there are light skinned 100 percent black Africans, lots of them. All blacks are not super dark. Your name sounds hispanic, most hispanics know absolutely nothing about true black Africans. Or you may be Brazilian most are just so uneducated about black people. Check this link, Monalisa Chinda is 100 Nigerian black African actress, who is lighter than Beyonce and better looking to me.

@medlacruz, many of the light skinned West Africans come from the Igbo or Hausa, Fulani tribes. These were not the slaves who came to the Americas latin America, South America and America. They were darker often
Most people dont know how facially and skin tone diverse Africans are its sad really. 100 percent West African black woman. Beyonce is so bad for black women.

“Beyonce Knowles: A Biography” by Janice Arenofsky, pg. 2, says: “Beyonce’s maternal grandmother Agnès DeRouen grew up in Louisiana… of descendants who were Jewish American, African American, Louisiana Creole, and Choctaw Native American… Beyonce’s maternal grandfather, Lumas Beyince, Also from Louisiana, he had a mixed ancestry of Chinese, Indonesian, French, and Spanish.”

follers October 25, 2015 at 6:52 pm

Jewish? Choctaw? Chinese? Indonesian? Where are they getting this from?

fuzzybear44 October 25, 2015 at 11:27 pm

@Follers

Idk about the Jewish or Indonesian backgrounds. However the Chinese did often marry into the black families in Louisiana, and Choctaw is a very common native ancestry with the creoles(myself included). Now I’m not saying she does or doesn’t, just saying it’s possible

passingtime85 October 26, 2015 at 12:11 am

I almost used “Beyonce Knowles: A Biography” as a reference for Beyonce’s profile. I chose not to however because of the use of the word descendants, which implies that DeRouen’s offspring, and her offspring’s offspring, were of various ethnicities. I blame whoever edited the book book because I believe that, based on the context of the quote, the word they should have used was “ancestors”. I decided not to use it, at a source, because of the error, especially seeing how citation wasn’t given.

midori29 February 8, 2016 at 9:19 am

Those descendants were from 100 years ago they are not recent.

ilovecherlloyd October 7, 2015 at 11:50 pm

She wants to be mixed but had a kid with a black man. How absurd. She thought her kid was gonna look Creole. A light skinned black women and dark skinned black man create a black looking kid.

fuzzybear44 October 8, 2015 at 12:15 am

There is no fixed look for a Creole. They go from black to white, and every (color, hair texture, etc.) that combo can make

midori29 January 28, 2016 at 8:02 am

She only got with the black man to advance her career, take his money and later divorce him and pimp him for child support. Beyonce has issues big time.

“take his money and later divorce him and pimp him for child support”

Yet she has not done either of these things.

midori29 February 1, 2016 at 8:50 am

She will very soon just watch. Beyonce is about money.

karenj February 1, 2016 at 12:03 am

You obviously have issues with someone who you do not even know. What is wrong with you? She doesn’t belong to any race she belongs to herself. She is extremely rich her and Jayz together are near the 1 billion mark. She has 100’s of millions of dollars by herself. wtf would she want to divorce him and get child support? Could it be she loves him? Ohh that can’t be true after all Negros cannot be honest to goodness people who always have to have some scheme huh? It is a fact that people like you are haters and are the reason why blacks have not gone as far as we could. The fact is 75% of African Americans have some part of white in them. Like it or not and on the other end 25% of American whites have black in them. All of that “I am part Indian” is either black or white. Ask the Cherokee Nation who say they turn down 95% of people claiming to be Cherokee as either part black or part white. I was told my grandmother was half Cherokee. My DNA says I am 36% white, 0 Indian and the rest is sub Saharian African. For some reason black and white people would rather claim the reason for their light or dark skin is Indian. perhaps because of our nasty history together, but they need to face facts. Beyonce’s mother is in no way 100% black. You are one of those field blacks who think because someone has white in them they think they are superior, so you have to put them down. I will bet you hate Halle Berry too. Hun leave that crap back in slave row and join the modern world already! I grew up with dark skinned girls calling me yella this or yella that. All I did to deserve it was to exist. And I am not even THAT light! They just like you hated everything about me for no real reason so I know people like you. Beyonce has not even had 1 scandal. She has not been with someone’s man, She has been happily married for years, she is very very beautiful and talented and very very rich. Whatcha got?

fuzzybear44 February 2, 2016 at 1:42 am

@Karenj

The Cherokee Nation are a bunch of backstabbers. Even when you’re proven to be part of the nation, they try to find a way to put you out. Plus it’s mostly the black members they try to put out. That’s why they are having all that trouble with the government right now. The government said they couldn’t throw their black members out, so they tried to take away their right to vote on issues, same thing with the Seminoles. Also if you look at some of the council members, you’ll see many of them look quite mixed with white.

(I grew up with dark skinned girls calling me yella this or yella that)

Got to admit, that’s funny. I always asked, where do live where black girls do that

midori29 February 9, 2016 at 3:28 pm

@Karenj, I am actually a big Halle Berry fan. Halle Berry is actually mixed as in a white mom, Beyonce is not. Beyonce is black with two black parents. Her mom is black too, she looks just like my grand mom who is black. You are confusong black with African. We all know most blacks are not 100 percent but they are blacks nonethess. Beyonce is black not triracial, not biracial bit BLACK American.

abbracci October 7, 2015 at 11:17 pm

She’s just black. She dyed her blonde and bleaches her skin and tries to look like she’s white or mixed. She doesn’t like herself and copies Jennifer Lopez. I don’t claim blacks who look mixed because they get mad and try to prove how “diverse” their race is lol. Don’t have mixed children with them and waste your light eyes, light skin and light hair with them because they will call it “black features” lmao

midori29 February 8, 2016 at 9:23 am

@malefactor No Beyonce does not look mulatto . Her parents are nlack people. A mulatto in America is someone with a white parent. Beyonce does not have white ancetry for over 100 years. She is black likely 75 to 85 percent black subsaharan African. Vanessa Williams who is lighter with green eyes is 64% subsharan African. Mariah Carey is near 50 percent African. Mariah Carey and Beyonce dont look the same.

No true. Dumbass. How do explain me then. My dad is english, Scottish, navajo and Cherokee. My mom is black. Hmmm I’m not a mulatto because my dad isn’t whole white or whole native American? You’re logic is illogical. Our grandparents obviously help create us too. Like my whole white great grandparent. Our my mixed great grandmother. It all adds up to create future generations. My grandfather was Scottish, English, native American. Guess what so am I! Along with my African american side. My mother is probably 80 plus percent African. Just because my father isn’t whole white, whole native ancestry doesn’t make me less mulatto.

midori29 January 28, 2016 at 8:05 am

No Beyonce has two BLACK parents . You do not. Beyonce has other race mixture over 100 years ago. IT IS NOT RECENT. Beyonce has no white recent ancestry nothing at all. She is BLACK and trying to be mixed. RHIANNA has more white ancestry than Beyonce. BEYONCE is a joke.

I mean, really its not that special. it’s not like shes an exotic blend of this and that. you have to go pretty far back to get to her French ancestry. she’s no Mariah Carey or Halle Berry, or Alicia keys. her mother isn’t even half caste. like a majority of black americans, she has something mixed in down the line. Kerry Washington has Scottish, English, and native American, roots. you don’t hear her going on and on about it. I don’t get it.

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 12:53 pm

She’s beautiful but not really exotic. A lot of celebrities are African American.

she’s not exotic, period, and never will be no matter how many lacefronts and wigs she wears, no matter how much she drones on. she wants to biracial so bad. just because you have something down the line does NOT make you biracial. pathetic.

beyonce is not a good role model for blacks

i mean by bleaching her face and skin means to most people that its not nice or ok to be black

but in fact african americans can be also good looking without bleaching

midori29 July 23, 2015 at 9:29 am

Beyonce is a TERRIBLE role model for black women. I have read African sites were black girls were discussing bleaching themelves to look like Beyonce and getting fake hair weaves that are not even there hair texture, sooo sad. White people love her because they can relate to the fake blonde hair and they think its actually real.

California July 12, 2015 at 8:20 am

So many insecure people trying to erase the woman’s ancestry. Tf?? She is what she is, just because you say she looks “just Black” doesn’t mean she is. Stfu please. She looks mixed to me, she looks like Shakira.

Zatm81 July 15, 2015 at 1:42 pm

I hope that you know that a vast majority of African Americans are mixed with something. Don’t just consider us mixed when we look like it. Chris Tucker, Oprah, Don Cheddal, all have something mixed in them.

it’s well known that shes insecure. I doubt she can even speak French and Creole (when she can barely speak English)

@california, its the non-blacks, whites who support and love her that have the insecurities when they cannot admitt that a black woman can be beautiful without having a white parent. So the black stars have to hype this mixed nonsense. Beyonce is not mixed in my opinion, no more than any African American or Carribean

angrygirl19 July 23, 2015 at 12:22 pm

thank you. claiming shes part native American and they can’t even find it…

midori29 January 28, 2016 at 8:11 am

@California read the article. Beyonce has no mixed ancestry. I am sorry for her lunatic fans that place her with Mariah Carey. Beyonce is just a light skinned black woman who wears caucasian hair weaves and so does her mom. Beyonce is taking advantage of the naive non black public thats where the insecurity is. White women like to tan and they like blonde hair, so she markets herself as relating to them but she lies about being pregnant and her real age. She is all about money.

midori29 February 1, 2016 at 8:54 am

@California we are blacks commenting and we can recognize other black people. If youre not black, you dont understand and cannot.

neiltennant July 9, 2015 at 12:45 pm

Those blacks like her are not good role models for african americans

i mean i know i was a small kid watching MTV when i saw WHITNEY HOUSTON 1991. i got a crush on her and she made interviews where she said clearly that she is african american

and on the other hand beyonce. Im sure she might have bleach procedures because it s impossible that she got so ”white” by the years.

Tux July 12, 2015 at 2:11 pm

How is she a bad role model for African Americans? The legacy of African Americans in the US is a mixed one. African Americans are not Africans. Not to mention have you looked at the ancestry of many of the African american celebs? many of them are just as mixed like Alicia Keys or Kat Graham.

neiltennant July 12, 2015 at 4:45 pm

I’m sure what I’m talking about and i had said it here before

i met beyonce on a cheap third class festival in germany by 1998. At that time they werent superstars and they had a gig with tons of other then unknown bands (there was also nsync)

And believe me or not but of the three destinys girls she looked the darkest one

she was so dark and that was not tan or so

and i know her mother is mixed and has light eyes but I’m sure that she had made something maybe bleaching or so

because that drastically change is not possible without those thing

midori29 July 23, 2015 at 9:34 am

I completely agree with you. Beyonce plays off of stupid people period and worldwide racism. Everyone saw how popular Halle Berry was so they ran out and got that cafe au lait, skin and got fake caucasian hair and decided to play up the insecurities of some white women, whom really want to be like black women but cannot admitt it, and CAPITALIZED on being black but ooking white and its working for her, because I do not get the super stardom that she is, I am like Beyonce is why is she so popular? I am almost rooting for Ciara to puch her off the top.

neiltennant July 23, 2015 at 9:41 am

thank you

shame on you BEYONCE

but thats business as usual

in india most bollywood actors of whom most of them are the lighter indians try also to erase their indian appearance

ilovecherlloyd July 9, 2015 at 6:46 am

Beyonce and Rihanna look biracial. Their distant Creole and Irish genes really came out lol

ashleymw1981 July 21, 2015 at 2:51 am

Will then all light skin black women are mixed because they look like ordinary light skin black women.

midori29 July 23, 2015 at 9:44 am

@Ilovecherloyd niether Beyonce nor Rhianna look biracial, you are thinking of thier fake hair and nose jobs, plus skin bleaching. Its soo sad. Halle Berry ‘s beauty started all of this biracial wannabee mess.

neiltennant July 5, 2015 at 8:51 am

i have seen her in the late 90s live at a cheap concert in germany where they had their gig among dozens of c-list bands she was relatively unknown then

but then she was black ! fully black. Awesome face. Nearly no breasts. And she looked as she were the only fully african american of the band. The other 2 were more mixed in my eyes

but now in tv and on pics she looks not fully black at all.

she is kind of self hating.
She was black now she wants to be accepted as biracial

a shame and she suggests that is not good to look fully black

midori29 July 23, 2015 at 9:42 am

Both Beyonce and Rhianna are self hating black women and I cannot wait until new black singers come up. But I do like Rhianna alot better. I like her work and think she has talent.

margot June 30, 2015 at 9:06 am

She doesn’t have Native American blood, Beyonce is mainly a mix of Black and Creole (Black+French)..Creole means Black+French..

neiltennant June 17, 2015 at 2:14 am

i have seen her in 1997 or 1998 live in germany when she was not a superstar

and she was much darker than the other 2 destinies child singers

Then i had guessed her full black but now she looks different. A lot of plastic surgery i guess

midori29 July 23, 2015 at 9:41 am

She had a nose job too. Both her and Rhianna, its sooo sad. Yes Beyonces mother got rid of the two other lighter Destiny Child singers because she wanted Beyonce to be the lightest singer, so she would stand out and get attention from whites. Its on the internet, the story.

neiltennant June 17, 2015 at 2:10 am

she was much darker in the 90s when they had their breakthrough

fuzzybear44 June 17, 2015 at 7:24 am

your right, she did brighten up.

abbracci June 6, 2015 at 5:37 am

Lol @ Black people being diverse in skin tone. I never saw a Black person light skinned unless they had mixed ancestry or are albino. They are called Black because they normally have black skin. Beyonce has Caucasian features and looks like her Creole mom. Solange took after her father’s side. Beyonce is light because she has distant French and Native American ancestry.

midori29 June 16, 2015 at 5:55 am

Creoles can be black too. Both of Beyonces parents are black people. Her mom has past admixture generations ago. Black people are NOT all one color. And for the record Beyonces skin tone is not that light as to not fit into West Africa. People just try to mix up Beyonce alot more because she is attractive. Beyonce is a brown dark honey toned black woman. Its not like she is super light skinned, she really is not.

fuzzybear44 June 16, 2015 at 7:08 am

Speaking as a Creole, yes they run the range of color, from Fats domino to whomever. There’s nothing fixed (colorwise, hair, eyes, facial features)

midori29 June 16, 2015 at 5:57 am

Mariah Carey and Jenniffer Lopez look mixed to me but Beyonce looks like an average African American or Carribean black woman especially when you take away the fake caucadian hair and makeup. People I guess are discounting that both of Beyonces parents are black people.

ashleymw1981 July 21, 2015 at 2:54 am

UMMMMMM Mariah CAREY is half black and white. Jo lo is Puerto RICAN which can mean a mixture of African , white mix. maybe some Middle Eastern in her blood as well.

M June 4, 2015 at 3:40 pm

Beyonce looks mixed to me, and please do not misinterpret what I am going to say as “racist”, but I think that’s why she’s so successful around the world. There are not many darkskinned fully black singers or actresses that are known worldwide. Rihanna is another example, she’s a fourth white and it really shows. I wish the world wasn’t like that, but’s the cold, honest truth. White people are extremely racist, and they only accept blacks with lighter skin and mixed features.

midori29 June 16, 2015 at 6:00 am

All of Rhiannas facial features are west african. Beyonce and Rhianna are average medium toned black women and they look like it. Beyonce has the fake white hair. Both artists are attractive and thats why they are so popular . But both women definitely look BLACK. ALSO Janet Jackson is way more popular worldwide than Beyonce and Rhianna and Janet Jackson is a darker black woman. People are so jealous of gorgeous black women.

ashleymw1981 July 21, 2015 at 2:57 am

So Janet Jackson , Usher , Ciara , Whitney Houston are all medium to dark brown black women but they are known around the world. Secondly. black people have many features and many shades of skin color that you can actually tell the difference . Unlike some ethnicities. Stop making it seem like we are on shade and only have one feature.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 1:56 pm

Not to mention this piece went back six generations to find a french white man??????? That covers just about every black person’s heritage, I know from the Carribean too America.You can tell im not a huge Beyonce fan, i just dont get it.

fuzzybear44 June 16, 2015 at 7:13 am

Wow 6 generations, you had to go that far back

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 1:42 pm

Also a well known site listed Beyonces birth date as 1974. That would make her 41 yrs old. Im not sure why the black community or any community has accepted the fact that this eoman wears fake caucasian hair. At least she could wear negroid kinky curly or relaxed African textured hair as her own. Im not trying to be a hater but her behavior sends a bad message to young black girls. And its resulting in crazy black women wearing white hair textured wigs all over America. I hope Janet Jackson returns at least Janet wore black hair.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 7:20 am
mermaid_ June 4, 2015 at 1:50 am

She tries too hard to look Caucasian anyway with all of that bleach and hair dye and she said she wishes she was Hispanic. Black people can have this self-hating lady.

thomas1987 June 4, 2015 at 4:06 am

I saw a picture of her mother she looked like a mullato.
http://cdn.straightfromthea.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/mstinaandmathew3.jpg

Here she is.

ashleymw1981 July 21, 2015 at 2:58 am

HER mother is black , her father is black . She does not want to be Hispanic at all .

M July 23, 2015 at 8:01 pm

LMAO NO BITCH TRY AGAIN. Her mother is MIXED! She’s CREOLE, they are black, white, and Native American. If today were the slave days, she most likely would treated as white, or maybe Latina. Her mom doesn’t look one hundred percent black.

mermaid_ June 4, 2015 at 1:21 am

What’s with the one drop rule still and Black people claiming her as pure Black? She’s Black but her looks are from her Creole (Native American and French) side.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 7:11 am

Not true, her looks are from her dads black side and creole is not a race. There are black creoles in Louisianna. Her mom is majority black too. Not to mention Beyonce’s mom has roots in Haiti and her dad is Bahamian, Beyonces ancestry is not even American.

mermaid_ June 4, 2015 at 1:14 am

She looks Creole. I never saw a regular Black woman who looks like her. Light skinned Black people are usually mixed and have something else in their DNA.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 7:13 am

It is so interesting that people are so racist that they consider every pretty black woman to be “mixed”. Beyonce has two black parents, no parent is of a different race. Past mixture centuries ago can apply to everyone.

neiltennant July 21, 2015 at 12:33 pm

why it is racist ?

black women like beyonce and others who bleach their skin are racist, because they suggest that its better to look white and mixed instead of looking just black

but thats disgusting

because not all men prefer mixed or white girls

ashleymw1981 July 21, 2015 at 3:00 am

lol are you serious . So every white person that tans easily must have some black or Native American heritage. My mother is lighter than Beyoncé and she black . There are plenty of light skin blacks without being mixed.

Jello April 29, 2015 at 4:23 pm

Beyonce is Black or African American. All of that one quarter this or part that describing one parent is irrelevant to an American born black person. They are black period.

Kerrywhite June 3, 2015 at 1:30 pm

She’s more than 1/4 White lmao.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 7:14 am

I doubt that, model Tyra Banks has greene eyes and is lighter than Beyonce and has only 14% white admixture. Look it up. Dont think that blonde straight hair is Beyonces real hair, it is really kinky .

Mafia888 March 10, 2015 at 4:25 am

Beyoncé is Black but I see a lot of Native American/Spanish in her. Her skin tone has a bronze color like a Native. She looks just like her mother.

L’Oreal claimed her ethnicity is African American, Native American and French. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nlt_mgNdnk0

Nia May 29, 2015 at 10:30 am

L’Oreal also claimed Jennifer Lopez as 100% Puerto Rican, which is not a race, so what is your point!? Beyonce is black, i am lighter than her and i am black, black people are diverse, whether mixed or not.

mermaid_ June 4, 2015 at 1:17 am

Beyonce looks Latina. Latinas are mixed with Native Americans. Light skinned Black women don’t look like her. She looks like a Dominican. Beyonce is mixed with Creole and has Native American in her genes.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 7:17 am

Not true, I think you are being confused by Beyonces, fake straight hair and her makeup. Google her sister Solange and pics of Beyonce when she was younger, she truly does not look latino and she looks just like a light skinned black girl. By the way latina is NOT a race.

Click link: http://zarriahb.buzznet.com/user/journal/12898391/young-queen-beyonce/

mermaid_ June 4, 2015 at 1:27 am

BTW This is a ethnicity site not a race site. Beyonce is part Native American and French, like it or not. That’s why she has light skin. Black people don’t have light skin unless they bleach their skin or they’re mixed or are albino. Black people are called Black because they have dark skin. You should take a DNA test.

midori29 June 4, 2015 at 7:19 am

Beyonce has very very little native american and french, she plays that up for album sales to stupid people and I dislike her because she is setting a very bad example for young black girls.

midori29 February 9, 2015 at 7:00 am

I have a problem with Beyonce, you know why? he wears caucasian blonde textured wigs, weaves, that is not her natural hair texture, the majority of the time. Beyonce’s real hair is kinky curly. Actually she wears wigs, weaaves, all of the time. What kind of message does she think that is sending to young black girls??? I do not see why black people do not have a problem with this.

midori29 February 9, 2015 at 7:00 am

Tyoe, meant to say “she” wears wigs/weaves

callmecharlie March 2, 2015 at 11:11 am

Because a lot of women (POC or otherwise) wear wigs and weaves. She’s worn her natural hair on several occasions. Besides, why are people so reliant on celebrities teaching children what’s right or wrong (even though there;s nothing wrong with straightening/dying your hair or getting weaves/wigs)? It’s her hair, she can do as she pleases.

tinasheeeee January 27, 2015 at 10:58 am

Uhm I don’t think Beyonce is Spanish or Irish, she even said that she isn’t Spanish. But yes, her mother is Creole (with African American & a little French in her) but she isn’t Spanish.

cdonorab January 27, 2015 at 5:02 pm

Yes she did say that she wasn’t Spanish, but more than likely she didn’t know at the time. She has several branches that are Spanish including one that connects her to Ferdinand and Isabella who are her 13th or 14th great grandparents.

midori29 December 1, 2014 at 8:55 am

Im wondering, if you go far back in anyones past like this Beyonce article then you are bound to discover another race. For big celebrities especially the black ones people start digging. I mean 1/32nd Irish,,?????? Like is everyone trying to relate to Beyonce. If you dig far enough, actually not too far, I dont even need to get into great, greats, you will find the same races. I am BLACK but there is also Native American, British, Potuguese, East Indian (India). But as a majority black person now, who really cares,?, why do people care so much about other races in the past. Beyonce is BLack now, get over it. She has the same mixtures as every other black person in America and the Carribean. No big deal. Whats with the reference to great, great, great, great, great grandfathers? If that is not anal , craziness I dont know what is.

Nino February 17, 2015 at 2:06 pm

The europeans don’t see Bey as black, they don’t, they say she’s Spanish and creole, not black. There dumb azzes don’t know what creole’ are, I had to point out to them that Bey is black to my white European friends, who never seen a photo of Bey’s parents, her dad is as black as night..and her mother looks just like a american light skinned black woman you see every day , anywhere in america, a dime a dozen black woman. However, look at Bey’s sister with kinky hair, just because a black person is light skinned doesn’t make that person mixed, do whites say the same when they are the darker one in the family, knowing african ancestry is present, hell no, whites wouldn’t admit such a thing even though its true, how dare they admit that several generations back, a mixed african was a part of their european bloodline, and if anyone knows this ?-whites know this and keep it hidden, and so called white Cubans do this too.. especially when they immigrate to america, they leave their african great grand mother side the family in cuba….go to Cuba and see how many black Cubans are there, they are the majority population in cuba, the so called white Cubans are the minority cubans ….and so black folks can see if you”re of african ancestry – no matter how white you look, skin or features, it’s kinship in the spirit of humans, you can’t hide it no matter hard you deny it..sure you may pass with other whites and have and still do today.but black folks always know if you’re part african ancestry. .

And for the record, once anyone is so called related past the previous 4th generation in one’s family. ., ah..it like not related…example, Bey 5th great grand whomever is not actually considered a inherited physical trait passed to her highly unlikely, other than in name only..any generation beyond the 4th great whomever is in name only, that’s why in certain states cousins can still marry each other, like 5th cousins can marry each other with no fear of physical deformity to their children, whites have been doing this for century, that’s where the term kissing cousins came from, white hillbillys marrying their cousins their first cousins down the line. .

…so all that mess about Bey’s great grand whomever to the 6th power, is null and void and in name only..the only ones who make such a issue as such, are those who are considered royal bloodline, king and queens, and even some of them married their cousins to keep what they called a royal bloodline pedigree..lllllll

angrygirl19 September 18, 2014 at 3:32 pm

Hey JJ she is not Jewish and Asian! Why don’t you IDIOTS stop making up shit. If she’s Jewish then Im Mexican. Gtfoh Brah!

passingtime85 September 13, 2014 at 9:06 pm

Correction.

I found this information on Tina Knowles a while back and only can corroborate one thing.

Tina Knowles’ mother Agnéz Deréon was Jewish/African American/Louisiana Creole/Choctaw Native American. Her father was of Chinese, Indonesian, French and Spanish ancestry.

I can’t verify all of Tina’s, and by proxy Beyonce’s, ethnic backgrounds except for the Jewish one, as it’s been proven that Beyoncé Knowles is Gustav Mahler’s(Jewish) eighth cousin, four times removed. True, it’s a very remote link, but at least it’s been proven.

follers September 13, 2014 at 10:46 pm

I’ve heard of the Mahler claim but I have never been able to verify it or find where it comes from. What is the origin of it and what ancestor are they related through?

passingtime85 September 14, 2014 at 1:18 am

It was in Norman Lebrecht’s “Why Mahler? How One Man and Ten Symphonies Changed the World”. Plus Tina Knowles used to have a Bebo account with her biography information on it stating her ethnic makeup, but I think that account shut down a while back.

follers September 14, 2014 at 2:08 am

This is what’s in the book:
http://books.google.ca/books?id=cpk6ANhFZjgC&pg=PA12&dq=Why+Mahler?+How+One+Man+and+Ten+Symphonies+Changed+the+World+beyonce&hl=en&sa=X&ei=G10VVNyTC4OvyATru4KoCw&ved=0CBkQ6AEwAA

Where is the author getting their information? He writes that she’s “said” to be a cousin to this very precise degree.

angrygirl19 September 15, 2014 at 10:52 am

Don’t know where YOU got your information! Okay though, haha!

midori29 December 25, 2014 at 10:03 am

Passintime 85 , ive never heard of Chinese and Indonesian lol. I think everyone wants to claim Beyonce.
