How old is a person that’s in college in 2003-04?

bablah January 25, 2017 at 11:40 am

Her parents are Ronald Patton and Patricia Jones.
That’s all I could find.

I don’t think that woman is white in That picture of her mother

you’re probably right.

bablah January 9, 2017 at 7:30 am

Maybe we should just put ”Not Asian” for her mother :D

I think she may very well be white. Her skin tone is quite pale for an African-American (although it can vary, which I know you’ll tell me).

you’re right , I will. I have plenty members of my family like that. I always say my aunts look like a bunch of old white women. I didn’t say Candice mother wasn’t mixed, just not full white

The mother looks Russian or from Kyrgzstan. Patton could be adopted though..

fuzzybear44 November 30, 2017 at 3:15 pm

Most likely not adopted. Her mother me.just looks a like skin black woman or mixed (not to offend others here). Candice just took more after her black heritage. I mean I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

Her mother is African-American. Maybe she has some other ancestry, but she’s definitely African-American.

Her mother is not European.

Kelsey Chow looks like her, but more lighter.

Kimmel June 9, 2016 at 7:44 pm

I was sure she was African, Native and Chinese. I still do. And if that is the case she has nothing to be ashamed of.

fuzzybear44 June 10, 2016 at 12:05 am

I doubt, she would be ashamed. She is from Mississippi, so the native is possible
