Channing Tatum

by ethnic on October 19, 2014

Birth Name: Channing Matthew Tatum

Place of Birth: Cullman, Alabama, U.S.

Date of Birth: April 26, 1980

Ethnicity: English, some Scots-Irish/Northern Irish and Irish, distant Scottish, German, and Welsh, remote French

Channing Tatum is an American film actor, model, dancer, and producer. After early film roles, including Coach Carter, Supercross, and Havoc, he became famous for starring in the hit films Step Up, Dear John, The Vow, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike, among others. He is married to actress, producer, dancer, and model Jenna Dewan-Tatum, with whom he has a daughter. Channing was selected People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2012. He is the first person born in the 1980s to have been given this title by the magazine, and thus could be considered the first millennial to have been given it.

Channing’s patrilineal line traces back to Nathaniel Tatum, who was born, c. 1599, in London, England. Channing’s family has lived in the United States, and specifically in the American South, for many generations. His documented ancestry includes English, some Scots-Irish (Northern Irish) and Irish, distant Scottish, German, and Welsh, and remote French.

Channing has stated that he has Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this Native American ancestry has been verified/documented. Channing’s grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents are listed as “White” on United States Censuses. Various fan websites, citing no apparent sources, have also stated that Channing is of 1/16th African-American ancestry. No evidence has ever been produced to support this statement, either. Channing has also said that his father has Creole ancestry, possibly confusing “Creole” and “Cajun”, although no Creole nor Cajun ancestry is contained among any of his genealogy.

Channing’s paternal grandfather was Samuel Hudson Tatum (the son of Enoch Wilkerson/Wilkinson/Wilson Tatum, Sr. and Josephine/Jo Hunt). Samuel was born in Alabama. Enoch was the son of James Thomas Tatum and Martha Lisa Frances Anderson. Josephine was the daughter of James William Hunt and Alice Ferrell.

Channing’s paternal grandmother was Avis Jearlene/Jearleane/Jerlene Hunt (the daughter of Harvey Reed Hunt and Nellie Pearl Esco). Avis was born in Alabama. Harvey was the son of William Henry Hunt and Aurelia Corrine/Corine “Katie” G. Ross. Nellie was the daughter of Charles Fleming Esco and Georgia Lucinda Elizabeth Hopper.

Channing’s maternal grandfather was Bascom Floyd Faust (the son of Amariah/Amirah Biggs Faust and Rozella/Rosella/Rosellar Rhodes). Bascom was born in Alabama. Amariah was the son of William Lemuel/Leonard Faust and Missouri Ellen Stubbs. Rozella was the daughter of John Thomas Rhodes and Mary Elizabeth McCall.

Channing’s maternal grandmother was Mayzell/Mazell “Mozell”/”Mazzie” Allen (the daughter of William Alonzo “Lon” Allen and Ada Beatrice McGrady). Mayzell was born in Alabama. William was the son of Thomas Edman Allen and Sarah Ann Frances Elizabeth Thomas. Ada was the daughter of Robert Farmer McGrady and Catherine Watson.

He also has a but of French in him. His great grandmother Nellie Escos mother had French ancestry through her Leseur ancestry. It can be raced to a David Leseur born in Calais in the 1680s.

phaedra April 28, 2016 at 7:01 pm

People either find him crazily hot or butt ugly. Am I the only one who thinks that he’s alright? He was more attractive when he was young though. And I always preferred if he had dark eyes for some reason.

So that rumor wasn’t even true about him being a 1/4 black??

I honestly don’t see what all the fuss is about Channing, I look at him, especially in the pic above and just do not find him cute at all. His features are way to close together and get a gay vibe from him, I just don’t find him atrractive

too white for Step Up

follers June 16, 2014 at 1:56 pm

If you count the two lead actors of each film, the only non-white Step Up actors have been Ryan Guzman (half Mexican) and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (if you count her as non-white because she’s 1/4 Lebanese).

J.J. July 9, 2014 at 5:59 pm

being part labanese does not make one not white and being half maxican doesn’t either unless the mexican is native/mestizo

There was a fan website up of Channing Tatum and it claimed he had Native American and black ancestry, this postulation is not true.

roman2886 April 1, 2014 at 9:31 am

He has Native American ancestry it’s been proven.

follers April 1, 2014 at 11:35 am

How has it been proven? What was the name of Channing Tatum’s last Native American ancestor?

ashash April 1, 2014 at 1:26 am

Channing Tatum claimed his father, who is from Louisiana, is Creole, but I guess there is no record of this? Is that why it is not listed?

ashash April 1, 2014 at 1:27 am

He is similar to Fiona Apple who claimed that her father, who is from Tennessee, is a Melungeon. Is there any record of this for her?

follers April 1, 2014 at 3:30 am

I think Channing confused Creole with Cajun. But he is neither and his father doesn’t even have Louisiana ancestry. He just lived there.

rickyflo April 1, 2014 at 11:36 am

yet Cajun or Creole doesn’t mean exactly race either. A creole in definition is what guys?? not always negroid. Channing is not a melungeon because he is not tri-racial and he is dominantly European, therefore, is Caucasian. Now if he had more Native as 50 native/50 European, he would be bi-racial of both. Genetical history of genes in humans is what proves this also. That is why Jews are caucasian, Hispanics (not Latinos) are Caucasian, Some Latinos are but others are not, and gypsies are even. Even if people hate him for the native or even hate him being not pure, he is still naturally that. No one can change him and if you believe in God, God is the only that can change that. So follers has a strong case!

rickyflo April 1, 2014 at 11:45 am

Nevertheless, people keep mistaking people that are dominantly of one race with another racial trait and bi-racial for melungeon, and they are not at all.

ssempre April 1, 2014 at 1:17 pm

You should say roma/romani instead of gypsy because gypsy is a slur.

indo March 19, 2014 at 11:45 pm

On some websites it said that he was part black

Channing Tatum is not part black, some fansite of his said he was, but he’s not.

I say “typical white dude” I mean his hair color, eyes, skin tone, not exotic.

Caution January 18, 2014 at 12:22 am

Part black? Exotic? He looks no exotic or part black, he looks like typical white dude.

Humanid January 14, 2014 at 1:35 pm

He is a hot exotic full-White guy.

From another website:
“Tatum’s mother is half Native American and half Irish (which is a pretty commonly known fact), but they also confirmed that his father is French and 1/8 Black. It seems that Channing’s great-great-grandfather is Black. “

follers January 1, 2014 at 3:20 am

His mother isn’t “half Native American” nor “half Irish”. His father isn’t “French”, except maybe in the sense of having a small amount of French ancestry.

Channing Tatum has no documented African-American or Native American ancestry. What were the names of his last African-American and Native American ancestors, and if you don’t know their names, how do you know they existed?

This is not a reliable source.

Channing Tatum said he had Creole in his family. He didn’t mean Cajun. Why would he be confused? And the census…..puhleese. Channing’s family had african americans passing for white at some point. He’s just got that look.

Humanid January 14, 2014 at 1:30 pm

LMAO..he looks part-black to you?
you need glasses.

To some people, any robust White man must have some African ancestry. LOL

Bjorn January 15, 2014 at 10:37 am

Yes, I agree. He has many white features, but he has some kind of nonwhite features in his bone structure thats not as noticeable.

However its somewhat apparent in his large lower mandible, thick lips, and thick eyebrows are a few examples.

Caution January 18, 2014 at 12:24 am

Nothing non-white about his features.

He’s soooo fine, I thought he was black!

driko December 7, 2013 at 12:56 am

white people are so “obsessed” about having some mysterious indian blood in them,case and point (Brad pitt, johnny depp,kevin costner..etc…).i mean, it’s crazy how much they are intrigued by native americans..they think they are cool.their ancestors exterminated them “root and branch” as they say,now they want to claim them..ain’t that something!?

Rudedude October 14, 2013 at 5:50 am

It used to be all over the ‘net, including Channing’s website, that his father had some African ancestry. My guess is that as his star rose, they realized that it might be detrimental to his career, so they omitted it. Oh well, what can you do?

follers October 14, 2013 at 11:52 am

What is the proof that Channing has black (or Native American) ancestry? What did his website say?

I know there were rumors on the internet about Channing having black roots, but I’ve never seen any evidence to verify this, and his father’s family tree, as far as can be seen, is entirely caucasian.

Rudedude October 19, 2013 at 2:27 pm

I don’t know – that is what I’m telling you. I saw it, I’m not making it up. My guess is that his people had him change the information. The webpage said something about his dad being 1/16 black.

But if it’s true or not, it doesn’t matter, if he looks white, then he is free to identify as such. But I know what I saw on his webpage.

solace December 31, 2013 at 11:24 pm

great great grandpa black.

Adam November 24, 2013 at 3:04 pm

You realize that this is the 21st century right? Why would having African roots hurt his career?

theropod June 26, 2013 at 1:31 am

Never knew a man being exotic looking be all-northern European – without a dash of Italian, Spanish and such. Guessing his Native/Creole blood gives him the exotic look.

follers June 26, 2013 at 1:33 am

He doesn’t have any Native or Creole blood. The census calls all his grandparents white.

Having a “dash” of Italian makes you look like Taylor Swift or Chris Massoglia, not like Russell Brand.

theropod June 26, 2013 at 2:10 am

Not always. You can be dark featured. I’ve seen many people being half English and Italian look like say, Eric Bana or Hugh Jackman (he has Greek great parents).

But then again you can also be light and fair, like Channing and be of Italian descent.

I’m not sitting on one side.

follers June 26, 2013 at 2:14 am

Eric Bana is half Croatian and half German. Hugh Jackman is 1/8th Greek, but he gets his nose from his non-Greek mother, and possibly his dark features as well.

My point is simply that being 1/16th Italian or Greek is not going to effect someone’s look.

follers June 26, 2013 at 2:18 am

Or, what I meant to say, of course you can inherit this “presumed” Italian “darkness” if you are half Italian, or even one quarter. But if you’re 1/16th, it won’t change anything.

blah November 14, 2012 at 3:59 pm

It’s funny how when it comes to white celebrities that have AFRICAN ancestry it’s a hidden secret. Channing Tatum Great-Great Grandfather was black and I didn’t make that up, it’s a fact. Also, Johnny Depp looked back and did some research on his family tree and found out he descended from an African woman, NO LIE (I kid you not). But whenever it comes to an attractive black celebrity they have to throw in an old white ancestor from WAY BACK. If you’re going to throw in everything he’s mixed with I would suggest putting African American because it’s in him. -__-

I DID NOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP 100% TRUTH.

eddiesha1 March 28, 2013 at 5:49 pm

ikr that’s what i was saying about what you said(It’s funny how when it comes to white celebrities that have AFRICAN ancestry it’s a hidden secret.)

nessachick July 14, 2012 at 7:32 am

I am Creole, black, Spanish,French,& Native American. Channing looks a lot like relatives that I have, & his heritage doesn’t surprise me considering he is from Alabama as that is common. I have family from Louisana, Missippi, & Alabama. All gulf coast. Most Creoles from Lousiana have African, French, & Spanish mixture well Cajuns have French Canadian & Native American mixture.

fuzzybear44 November 21, 2012 at 2:29 am

To follers

Why would you think that?For the record,many creoles made habit of passing as white(George Herriman is a prime example).So he could be correct about what he said.Now it’s obvious old George was white,for the record(I didn’t make the rules that said he wasn’t)

fuzzybear44 November 21, 2012 at 3:44 am

To Follers

But you have to remember,that was the whole point of passing.I’m of Creoles heritage,so I know my culture made a habit of this.Changing names,locations the whole nine yards.But yet I don’t,however your making an assumption to that he would be Cajun,where’s the evidence for that?

fuzzybear44 November 21, 2012 at 4:15 am

To follers

I forgot,you do know that there are full white Creoles to right?Also in the past,people sometimes paid for the mixed child to be marked down as white(if it looked white).I used to hear stories like this all the time.My grandmothers cousins on my mother side are mixed bloods to,but they’re all white.I know it that had nothing to do with anything,just thought it was interesting.

tarahbelle2 March 8, 2013 at 7:43 pm

Actually, the word Creole originally was attributed to white people (in Louisiana, the word was used in other French colonies too). It was used to denote someone who was the the child or descendant of direct immigrants from France to Louisiana, as opposed to the Acadians/Cajuns who were the French Canadians exiled from Canada to Louisiana. Originally, Creole families were all white families. For a while, black Creoles were called “Creoles of Color” to distinguish them from the white Creoles. Over time, people started attributing the word Creole to black only, but it definitely does not mean black specifically. I have plenty of Creole families in my tree who were Creole without being black. One of my ancestors built the oldest example of a Creole cabin still standing today, and he and his family were white. That being said, many white Creole families, Cajun families, black Creole families, and Native Americans intermarried (yes, even married, not just illegitimate children; there were many respected creoles of color). So a great deal of people with of French Louisiana descent are all of the above (creole, creole of color, cajun, and native american). It is really hard nowadays to describe a family as one or the other. All of my direct ancestors were Creole, Cajun, Native American, and German intermarrying in South Louisiana (and one day I am sure I will find black Creoles in my line too). Usually if someone says they are Creole nowadays they either mean black Louisiana French descent or they may not mean black, but are referring to a certain surname in their line (i.e. the Lacours were originally Creole, but married plenty with Cajuns and Germans, but we still refer to the Lacour family as a Creole family).

I am not debating Channing being part black by any means (I have no idea about his family tree). I have plenty of cousins who are part black Creole and they look as white as can be. But I am just pointing out that Creole does not necessarily mean part black and most people of Creole descent say they are Creole without even thinking someone will mistake it for black. I say it all the time outside of Louisiana and get the response “you’re black?!?!?!” LSU has some interesting histories of the term online explaining the evolution of the term from its original meaning to its multiple meanings today.

fuzzybear44 March 9, 2013 at 1:26 am

@tarahbelle2

That’s incorrect,
Historically, the term Creole was documented by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. In the “The Inca”, writing in the early 1600s, he said: “The name was invented by the Negroes… They use it to mean a Negro born in the Indies, and they devised it to distinguish those who come from this side and were born in Guinea from those born in the New World….

Also :
Another version states that the term Creole (Spanish — Criollo) was introduced in 1590. It derived from the Latin word �crear�, which meant, �create.� In 1590, Father J. de Acosta decided that the mixed breeds born in the New World were neither Spanish, African, Indian, but various mixtures of all three, thus a created race. So he identified them as “Criollos”. The Spanish copied them by introducing this word to describe those born in the New World, and in this way both Spaniards and Guinea Negroes are called criollo if they were born in the New World.”

According to the experts,who are said to all agree,that the name was denoted to slave child born in the masters household.

Now as you can see word belonged to the blacks first,and the whites took it for themselves later.

cinnamongirlz June 28, 2012 at 6:16 am

From reading some of the comments, even though Channing does have African American ancestry, some folks want to doubt it because it is not apparently displayed. Many educated commenters have reminded those who don’t think its possible that Channing has Black ancestry, because of his looks, well looks don’t tell all – but the blend makes him look other than all white. His Native ancestry is not the cause of that “exotic” stare either. Also, on – line biographers seem to think its okay to exclude the Black ancestry because its only “1/16”. That is so laughable, it seems that the country’s one-drop rule has come back to bite itself in the butt.

nnnnn November 21, 2012 at 1:05 am

One can include 1/16, too. But I think, one should always
notice 1/16, 1/32 etc.and not just write “ethnicy: irsh,
african”

tarahbelle2 March 8, 2013 at 7:45 pm

Creole does not necessarily mean black (see my other post above). But I agree, being Louisiana French, I have a lot of cousins who know for certain they are part black (and one day I will likely find it in my own tree) and they do not look it at all. Likewise I have some that are very recently part white that do not look it. Looks don’t always tell.

I read on a website (the name eludes me now) that he had a back Great Great Grandfather. I mostly see NA and Irish in him though. His nose and eyes remind me of a young (but much better looking) Val Kilmer, who also has NA. There is something very unique about Channing’s look.

Keek March 28, 2012 at 12:37 pm

When Tatum mentioned “Creole” it doesn’t mean it’s African mixed. It’s perhaps just Native + European mix. I will agree with KimJ, in that his facial structure looks more Native than African-American.

GeorgeJeanPierre May 5, 2012 at 3:42 pm

Our son has European hair type but bouncy curly hair and his features are very European does that mean he isn’t mixed with black.

How racist do you have to be joe and logic to even think that way? Black people do not need to claim a mix race person.

his father is french and 1/8 black,so that makes him 1/16 black,so yes he does have some black in him

Say WHAT? February 18, 2011 at 7:22 pm

And if the rumors are true, he gets black in him often.

Mr. Anderson August 17, 2010 at 11:27 pm

He’s the male version of Megan Fox.

Yes August 18, 2010 at 7:10 am

Except he had no plastic surgery.

COMMONSENSE January 6, 2012 at 3:44 pm

he does not look like Megan Fox at all.

IamTheLight July 14, 2010 at 9:15 am

Dang…wish the native boys around here looked like that! Lol

Veronica June 17, 2010 at 5:38 am

ethnic June 17, 2010 at 7:41 am

He’s part african american too.

KimJ June 7, 2010 at 11:08 pm

Seriously doubt that

To KimJ

After seeing all the people on here,with all these mixtures,why would you doubt that?

KimJ June 7, 2010 at 11:40 pm

His skeletal structure is why I doubt it. Pay attention to conformation, not just skin color! I can see American Indian in his bone structure, not African. He also displays a strong European skull structure, muscle formation, as well as skin tone. I like to think of blacks as the Thoroughbred or Greyhound of the human world. Long skinny muscles that are easily displayed. A man from Caucasian descent is thick and not built for speed. This man does not display long and skinny muscles built for speed, he looks like a man built to take abuse. If you are thinking about black dudes that are thickly built, think about their heritage, not their skin color. That will give you a clue. The more pure African friends I have, are wirey, and speed built.

Not everything just relies on skin color.

I don’t rely on skin color,or bone structure.You’ve never seen any of the posts I’ve put on here have you?I ‘ve just put someone up recently that pretty much blows what you said out the water:
James Watson

no doubt a white man,yet 16% black
Now it’s been shown on here many times,that you can’t go by what a person looks like or what you think they are

moi August 11, 2010 at 6:51 am

i doubt he is african also

even though black genes are dominant mixed people dont necessarily dont inherit their skull shape

look at some ethopians

worldgirl October 10, 2011 at 9:02 pm

well why do people think that if you have some black in you that you have to look like you came straight from africa ( I have black in me and they still can’t figure out what i am…so I make a sumation for them and educate them) yah can have some tossed in or alot does’n’t mean a thing sometimes for the facial structure/bone structure cause one kid can have a “white” face shape and flat forehead etc., and the other sibling can have african shape and round forhead etc soooo.

wrldgrl January 6, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Duhh becasue he’s mixed with mostly white-ish parts he’s more likely to get that part of the DNA ,. I’m part asian but do not have their bonestructure .. at all ( I wish I had a more round hart shaped face and petit frame but hey)
people keep forgetting that you cAn have one or the other and he does have some black in the nose part or his muscular&thick frame which can also be Native shining through ..jussst both actually… and FYI even My nose shows off actually three cultures at the least (bridge sides AND tip ) while my face shape 1 and my body/ frame 3 or 4

Lorraine October 24, 2010 at 5:40 pm

his skin is not black, and sorry to burst your bubble guys, but his bone structure looks subtly african to me. would not be surprised if he was, say, 6th generation african. ps. his nose and lips kind of make this a bit obvious, dont you think?

Fuzzybear August 11, 2010 at 7:47 am

well I did say you can’t go by that.Non-mix blooded black don’t have what supposed to a black bone structure.Now each one of those groups he mixed with has had recent black DNA mixed into their groups,not that I’m saying he is,I’m just saying it is possible that he does have it.

Say WHAT? December 16, 2010 at 9:48 pm

I believe he has African ancestry. White people slay me; so fucking scared of African blood. Some of you sound like a bunch of pussies. coughKimJcoughmoicough.

Channing’s website at one time mentioned that he HAD African ancestry – about 1/16th. This tidbit has since been removed because unfortunately too many people think like some of you. Five to 10% of the US white population has varying degrees of black ancestry – get over it!!!
