Bow Down Bitches July 26, 2015 at 7:59 pm

don’t want to sound rude but she isn’t very pretty. idk why she looks a little asian, her brother doesn’t look asian at all. do they have the same parents?

neiltennant January 6, 2016 at 7:15 am

very offensive !

you are here on the world wide web anonymous and don’t show anybody your face

but i bet you are not looking so good like her

Can see strong African influence from this pic. Her eyes basically look like that because of the make up, liner and all that.

neiltennant July 18, 2015 at 11:39 am

I remember 1998 nearly everybody of the male pupils at my school in germany had a crush on her


Capricious April 3, 2015 at 5:00 am

She looks like a bug. Lol…

And she definitely has Asian in her. A lot of Asian. Maybe a bit of Native blood.

She is a true Blasian to me.

Yes as I stated,Africa is full of them.The Islands have lots of asian ancestry mixed up in them etc.

andrew April 21, 2013 at 5:53 am

which “Islands”?

fuzzybear44 April 21, 2013 at 8:07 am

I was referring to places like the Caribbean

ihatemostpeople May 5, 2014 at 12:48 am

Jamaica has a Chinese population. Naomi Campbell and Tyson Beckford have Chinese ancestry.

Wrong! November 26, 2011 at 11:12 pm

Who actaully though this girl was mixed? There are many AFRICAN’s who have slanted eyes and they are black as tar and pure African! Brandy is not mixed, her mom is not light skinned but brown ( unless u r comparing it to tar) and she has str8 blk features like her brother Ray j!

The Truth September 28, 2011 at 2:31 pm

Yeah Brandy is mix with more than just black look at her I bet if you go down her family tree there is a white person in there I’m black and maybe the same skin tone as Brandy I have a mix grandfather

Leesha October 6, 2011 at 9:49 pm

Re: Brandy. I’ve personally met Black South Africans who have NEVER cross bred with the Caucasoid race….& many r Brandy’s EXACT complexion & some even lighter. (NELSON MANDELLA is one…& there r plenty of others UNMIXED …LIKE “bushmen”) …so this myth that u MUST be mixed if U R light brown. This IS A RACIST LIE passed on from Supremacist groups THAT wanna mix “HIS STORY” 2 say everyBODY came from them…but never want 2 admit ….THEY CAME FROM THE BLK MAN….who was 1st 2 be on this planet. Pass it on….a different truth u were never told.

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 10:43 pm

I am a Ugandan and light-skinned. my twin sister is darker than me. Be open-minded, please

BLACK_NDN September 20, 2011 at 2:57 pm

BLACK_NDN September 20, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Get A Grip June 1, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Everyone in the world is multi
cultural wether by choice or due to periods in history not so glamorous. Humans have always roamed the earth so the mixture of culture, race, etc is inevitable. One thing is certain we are humankind we livebreathe & die.

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 10:44 pm

For Sure

liyah May 18, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Brandy is no way mixed there are many black people that have her features and are only black. People base being mixed on the most stupid things seriously. If a black person has brown skin they have to be mixed, if they have some what of a high nose bridge they have to be mixed, if there eyes looks similar to an asian person’s eyes they have to be mixed with asian. It’s like saying if a white girl has a round blumped ass they have to be mixed with black, doesn’t that sound stupid? Just like there are many white girls out there with an ass there are many black people out there with a high nose bridge and light skin and just so happen to have eyes like brandy. It’s such a stereotype that all black people have flat noses and skin as dark as tar and big ass pink lips with eyes the size of pool balls we all look different.

WTF May 19, 2011 at 4:39 am


Actually I have to disagree with you on the white girls.According to experts,since 1/3 the white population(74 million people) is supposed to have fairly recent black blood.The odds of those white girls with the junk in their trunk,actually having black blood is pretty good.Now as far as the facial stuff,your right unmixed Africans have that naturally.

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 10:47 pm

Thumbs up. You are one of the few people i have met here that has actually travelled and seen the world

Ciku November 17, 2010 at 12:41 pm

Just coz her mum is light with oriental features does not mean Brandy is mixed with anything. I’m African, and it’s amazing to see how diverse our people look. My grandfather is very lightskinned with slanted eyes, he passed it on to my mum and mum passed it on to me. I have a golden shade of brown skin, brown hair and slanted eyes, bearing in mind we’re pure Africans, with no foreign blood from anywhere. It’s therefore a facally to think that Africans or black people who don’t look like the way you expect them to look are mixed with anything else.

christine March 11, 2011 at 12:02 pm

my younger sister’s got asian eyes too.. we’re pure africans but her facial features look asian but she’s darker than my older sister and i. im guessing you’re kenyan kikuyu..judging by the name?

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 10:50 pm

Exactly. Just like me, I’m a male Munyoro from Hoima, Uganda and i’m light-skinned yet my twin sister is much darker.

Ahhh(: July 10, 2010 at 10:08 pm

She Looks Kind Of Asian, and her mom is light skinned and looks kind of asian as well.

ihatemostpeople May 5, 2014 at 1:01 am

Um Chinese people are usually light… so IDK why you would even mention her mother is “light skinned”. You must be thinking of Filipinos and any other Southeast Asian. Filipinos are usually darker than East Asians.

ihatemostpeople May 5, 2014 at 1:03 am

Oops I wrote this thinking I was on Kristin Kreuk’s page. LMFAO!!!!!!!!! Disregard my previous comment. I forgot I was on Brandy’s page. I have two tabs open….

Alexismartin from eastlouis May 16, 2010 at 6:02 pm

Ilove brandy she so beautiful

Black MON April 22, 2010 at 4:44 am

She is mixed with something maybe native american or asian and a touch of white ,she is not totally black her mom is light skinned as hell

Bombpants May 16, 2010 at 7:46 pm

Cicely May 18, 2011 at 9:29 am
