50% white/ 50% black but he 100% ugly. Never seen a black ginger, he’s just weird looking.

I confuse him with Kris Humphries all the time. They look like they could be brothers.

This is a perfect example of how a dark skinned black person and white person can have a child who is very light-skinned with freckles and light/red hair. Some people seem to think that if one parent is very dark skinned then the child will come out more darker than Blake’s skin color, which is definitely not the case.

And you’re just an ignorant idiot. He is clearly mixed. Fuck the one drop rule.

Anyone with two eyes in their head would know this man is not just a black guy. Daisuke stop trolling.

Well then maybe you should tell that to the American Government with their “One Drop Rule”. It’s a historical colloquial term in the United States for the social classification as Negros of individuals with any African ancestry; meaning any person with “one drop of Negro blood” was considered black. The principle of “invisible blackness” was an example of hypodescent, the automatic assignment of children of a mixed union between different socioeconomic or ethnic groups to the group with the lower status.
