Correction african And spanish, instead of “likely some”

I don’t know…

andrew January 6, 2018 at 5:03 pm

She is a mulatta. Genetically I think she’s triracial.

I don’t think her father is white.

gmillaz January 9, 2018 at 2:32 pm

He may be not white, but he’s not black either. Does she and her father look just african?

fuzzybear44 January 7, 2018 at 4:35 pm

@gmillaz

IDk, half those celebs I wouldn’t call bi-racial. Christina is a multi-generational mix, like everyone on that list

fuzzybear44 January 9, 2018 at 5:35 pm

@gmillaz

she doesn’t need any help from me, but in her defense, follers didn’t say what she thought he was, only what she thought he didn’t look like. He doesn’t look like a full white person. Odds are pretty good, that he’s a mixed blood cuban like the rest of his family.

andrew January 9, 2018 at 6:24 pm

@fuzzybear

He’s obviously not a full white person. I would not call him “black” though.

fuzzybear44 January 9, 2018 at 11:30 pm

@andrew

Funny, I don’t remember calling him black,Wait let me check. Nope, I said he most likely was a mixed blood Cuban like the rest of his family

Did it appear different on your screen?

gmillaz January 10, 2018 at 7:16 am

So, she is obviously mixed like you say yourself. She is Cuban, so she is probably mixed with both African and Spanish. Clearly not just African and “maybe” some little Spanish.

fuzzybear44 January 10, 2018 at 11:01 pm

@gmillaz

I never denied she was of mixed ethnicity. I’ve stated before that on this side of the hemisphere pure blood black people are rare or should I say in a small percentage

gmillaz July 31, 2017 at 12:21 pm

Correction; including Spanish, not possibly Spanish

Samiiraa February 7, 2017 at 3:20 am

Her father isn’t black, he has definitely African dna like most Latinos but what do you call Afro-Cuban ?

Quote(what do you call Afro-Cuban ?)

I guess you call them a Cuban. The thing is, my sister -in-law is half Cuban/ Half Salvadoran . She says her Cuban father is dame near as black as the ace of spades(so she says he’s black). Her Salvadoran side also has African blood from a great grandfather who was mulatto

AW January 15, 2016 at 10:53 pm

She’s pretty, she definitely has that Afro-Latina look and identified herself as Latina on her show Turned Up when she went to a Latina awards show.

Possibly spanish ? not POSSIBLY but certainly ! She is obviously mixed and her father is white !

California July 24, 2015 at 10:37 pm

I know she’s mixed, but where’s the proof that he’s White? I thought both of her parents were mixed.

SpaniardIam May 9, 2015 at 1:51 am

“Millan” is a Spanish name. Interestingly it is also my own name. Cuba is not an ethnicity. Cuba is a country composed of three main ethnic groups (Spanish, African and indigenous). His father is Spanish surname and have appearance of being Spanish. Therefore it is also part of Spanish heritage. Please correct that. http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lpxgslYE171qky9weo1_1280.jpg

SpaniardIam May 9, 2015 at 2:05 am

Sorry, I correct. I meant “Flores” is a Spanish name. And his father also appears. So it is part of their Spanish ancestors.

alberto.r7 March 17, 2015 at 7:38 am

Her father isnt black, so she is not only black.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:08 pm

I do not think she looks mullato as in black and white . If anything she looks more Black /Asian Indian.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:11 pm
WTF January 20, 2015 at 7:27 pm

lol dumb bitch, you know what an Indian looks like right? I guess not since you’re over here saying she looks Indian. You’re so annoying, gtfo. Mixed people are not black, so fuck off asshole.

WTF January 20, 2015 at 7:29 pm

p.s. forgot to say that people always say Halle Berry looks black and Indian but she’s not. Just bc someone doesn’t look the way you want them to doesn’t mean they aren’t that ethnicity.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:30 pm

@WTF I am part native American Indian born in South America. Trust me you dumb bitch, I know what black and native Asian Indian mixtures look like, its my family.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:31 pm

@WTF, you loser and self hater ALL black are mixed. Too bad if you have to be black.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:33 pm

@WTF Yes Halle Berry does not look half white and black to me, she looks typically how people look when they are part Indian (from India) and Black African. Or Halle looks East African/South African to me.

WTF January 20, 2015 at 7:36 pm

You’re obviously a troll so I’m not going to waste any more of my precious time. Idk what generation you grew up in, but more mixed people are identifying as mixed instead of black. Fuck the one drop rule, I don’t go by it. I don’t look black either, I look mixed and so do many other mixed people. Stop claiming mixed people as black. Why do black people love to claim mixed people as black? All the mixed celebrities represent the black community, but most blacks don’t look like Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, Thandie Newton, Paula Patton, Christina Millian, etc…. You can tell they’re mixed. I’m not a self-hater, I just like acknowledging my other side. I’m not just black and I don’t look just black.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:41 pm

@WTF, I assure you I AM NOT A TROLL. That’s what you have to say when its obvious that you’ve lost the argument. Sorry lol. Get some black history and hang out with some black people, its obvious that you are waaaay out of touch.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:43 pm

@WTF, where I come from, there is 100 times more race admixtures than in America. So I have seen racial combinations of every kind. At the end of the day , if you look any trace of black that’s how you will be treated all over the world, so its not point wasting time arguing about percentages. There is a lot of hate and racism in the world to think about.

WTF January 20, 2015 at 7:48 pm

@midori29- Actually I said that because I don’t give a shit about what you have to say. You are so blind to your ignorance and stupidity. Other people have called you out on this as well, but you can’t get it through your skull. Just stop while you’re ahead. At the end of the day, I will do whatever I want. I will call myself mixed if I want, and quite frankly I could care less what anyone else says. I know who I am. You can claim mixed people as black, but I won’t.

midori29 January 23, 2015 at 7:56 am

@WTF, I am African (majority), Native Indian Arawak, East Indian (india), and Portuguese mixed

LucarioCooper January 26, 2015 at 3:09 pm

@WTF It’s obvious that you’d encountered a problem with ‘black’ people. I have a mix friend, he’s black and German. And I’m of Afro-Carribean. To society, I would be black, but I’m not. I have plenty of other races in my veins with a dark-brown complexion while he is a light tan.

I remember when he thought I liked listening to rap and wearing Jordans and Nike’s. Lol. But I am the complete opposite. We eventually became friends and that day he discovered that ‘appearance isn’t everything’. You can look like something but really isn’t.

My mix friend looks like the typical mix boy. xD Light tan skin with curly hair and will go on the white side because they ‘appear’ to be superior. Knowing well white people aren’t.

The only thing that looks mix about me are my eyes. And that’s about it. Someone even said I look like a darker Asian. And people ask me if I was mix or not. Are you getting it?

Just because Halle Berry want to be in the black community, doesn’t mean she hates her other side. Being proud and being insecure are two different things. I advise to look at this video and even download it. You will learn a lot.

Thank you. :) Oh, and I’ve been reading your comments on other people ethnic pages for years now and you should be happy I took the time to reply, right? Like, I finally have time.

roman2886 January 28, 2015 at 3:00 pm

@WTF Right you go why don’t you stop bullying people why can’t leave people alone if you can’t say anything nice don’t say nothing at all i want you this leave website please and never comeback your not welcome here.

Dogg March 16, 2015 at 11:37 pm

Black/Asian? bahahaha, no. She’s a mulatto through and through. Most Cubans are mixed with European and African. All Latin-Americans are mixed to some degree, there are no pure white or black Latin-Americans. She is mixed, period. And that’s why she’s hot.

Daron January 19, 2015 at 2:27 pm

She isn’t Afro Cuban she’s African American.

follers January 19, 2015 at 3:11 pm

She’s not of African-American descent.

Samiiraa July 5, 2015 at 5:45 am

She is 100% Cuban

she definitely does not look pure african, she looks quite significantly white, i suggest her ethnicity be changed to just cuban (even though cuban isn’t an actual ethnicity) or the entry should just be deleted from the site

andrew January 19, 2015 at 1:57 am

yeah it’s a joke

follers January 19, 2015 at 7:05 am

You’ve not gone nearly far enough, J.J. I think ethnicelebs should also issue a public press release to apologize, and perhaps offer rebates to those members of the public who were particularly upset.

ethnic January 19, 2015 at 7:22 am

I think the make-up she wears changes everything.

midori29 January 19, 2015 at 7:43 am

@Follers, I think pretty black African descent women, who acknowledge that they are, seems to make people upsett. TOO FREAKIN BAD, lol. And she only dates Black rappers. The blackest mwwwaaaahhhh lol.

midori29 January 19, 2015 at 7:23 am

@JJ there are many many East Africans that look like Christina. People box black Africans into one look and its untrue. SHE LOOKS BLACK to me. Black is very very diverse. The most diverse race on earth.

andrew January 19, 2015 at 10:26 am

looks mulatta, not east african

Check7t January 19, 2015 at 11:25 am

Lol, when she says “East African” she just means Horn Africans (Ethiopians and Somalians) who are generally Caucasoid in morphology themselves due to significant Semitic admixture.

They have Caucasoid physiognomy traits for a valid reason. Why is that? Cause they’re mixed with Semitic Caucasoids, as corroborated by genetic studies.

Purebred Negroids don’t have Caucasoid traits, obviously this girl (whom I have no idea is by the way) shows discernible Caucasoid admixture and looks more admixed than the average African-American, who is usually 20-25% European.

Check7t January 19, 2015 at 11:30 am

Either way she doesn’t even look Horn African too.

memphis January 20, 2015 at 6:11 pm

First off what’s an example of a “Pure Bred Negroid”. Are Woddabe/Fulani/Fulbe? Are Dinka in the Sudan…who are pitch black but can have dark blue eyes and striking features. Ethiopians and Somali people are different from each other. Ethiopia was an empire that lasted from the B.C. to 1974 and never was colonized by Euros. Yemen was once a part of the empire Abyssinia but there have always been very diverse tribes in Ethiopia. Somalis are generally much darker than Ethiopians with close genetic ties with Tuareg,Amazigh and Beja. Are San Bushman with their reddish skin “Negroid”. Sometimes Anthropologists or students of the subject come across as scientific racists. Always getting social terms confused with supposedly stereotypical phenotypes.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:07 pm

@Check 7t, again you need to do your research Horn Africans are NOT Caucasoid in morphology, HORN Africans are the oldest people on earth and they looked like they do way before “caucasoids were inhabiting he earth. Horn Africans are black Africans just like the rest of the black Africans, And they are the oldest Africans on earth. Older scientists incorrectly labeled horn Africans as caucasoids in the past just to alleniate Africans and promote racism. But Horn Africans are black Africans and not Caucasoid anything.

Dogg March 16, 2015 at 11:40 pm

I don’t think Horn of Africans look predominantly Caucasoid at all, they’re mixed. I’ve known plenty of them and they all look somewhere between African and Semitic.

WTF January 20, 2015 at 7:25 pm

LOL all y’all niggas who giving this “midori” bitch are dumb af. Just ignore the trick, she’s always saying mixed people look just black when obviously they ain’t just black. Heffa sit down, you’re making yourself sound like complete moron. I would never mistake Christina for black, so stfu bitch. Stop claiming mixed people as black, it’s fucking annoying and rude. I would never say I’m black, I’m mixed so fuck you and all the other Afrocentric asshats.

midori29 January 23, 2015 at 7:41 am

@WTF you have real issues that need psychiatric assistance, seriously, its not that serious for you to curse and act crazy. its just a basic discussion. WOW

wamzy January 27, 2015 at 1:17 pm

@midori29 I was thinking the same thing..it’s not that serious. Actually it’s not serious at all..calm down!!

Ok she’s not mixed, she’s not Black..She’s Chinese!

@WTF Who gives a shit..lol

WTF January 29, 2015 at 4:46 am

@wamzy: Nigga have a fucking seat. NO ONE tells me wtf to do. I do whatever the fuck I want on my own watch so hop off bitch. I fucking HATE keyboard warriors. Y’all thinking you’re tough and shit, but in reality you’re fucking cowards. Fuck off asswipe!

ethnic January 29, 2015 at 5:24 pm

You are getting banned for your trolling And constant hate.

midori29 January 19, 2015 at 7:27 am

@jj I think you are only thinking about West Africa. And I can show you Africans that look like her. Even in West Africa. There are only 3 races. Caucasoid, Africoid ( includes Australoid, Capoid, negritos) and Mongoloid. So yes out of all three she would most resemble BLACK Africans.

Check7t January 19, 2015 at 11:40 am

Australoids are not Negroids nor do they have anything in common genotypically with Negroids, as of matter fact they’re the least genetically related to Negroids, they cluster in the closest to Polynesian and Asian populations.

Australoid is a different morphology from Negroid.

memphis January 20, 2015 at 6:20 pm

“Australoids” cluster genetically with Oceania and with some Andaman Islanders the Ainu indigenous to Japan. Physically they look stereotypical African. Australoids were considered “Negroids” up until the late 19th/early 20th century. They are just as “black” as afro americans…ask an Australian Aboriginal. They identity themselves socially “black”. There also many in parts of Yemen and Saudi.

Check7t January 20, 2015 at 9:00 pm

“physically they look stereotypical African”

How can you say Australian Aboriginals look African? They don’t look like any African ethnic groups, maybe some Papuans do, but there is diversity amongst Australoids.

No, genetically they are not as “black” as African-Americans, even if some do look black, structurally they are different as well as in terms of genome.

Some Middle Eastern/North Africans can ‘look white’ all while being genotypically different than Europeans.

Aboriginals (generally) do not identify as “black”, as it would not make sense phenotypically or genetically. Some Papuans can look “black” but structurally and genetically, there’s a still difference.

Check7t January 20, 2015 at 9:43 pm

@memphis, obviously when I say “purebred Negroid” I’m referring to 100% SSA Negroids, completely not admixed with any other groups. Nowhere in Sub-Saharan Africa do people exhibit Caucasoid traits (so it’s not a case of an odd convergent evolutionary trait) without Caucasoid admixture. Horn Africans (lots of them) are morphologically Caucasoid due to Semitic Caucasoid admixture. All peer-reviewed scientific journal studies on these confirm this Semitic gene flow. They exhibit Caucasoid traits due to Caucasoid admixture and become lots are Caucasoid structurally, it’s not a cause of “scientific racism” but a structural fact in terms of biology. Forensics identifies race skulls (Caucasoid, Negroid, etc) in deceased remains, terms like “white” are socially constructed with conventional standards and some biological reality, but the fact is purebred Negroids do not exhibit Caucasoid traits without Caucasoid admixture. You see Russians and Finns with Mongoloid traits (some) due to Mongoloid admixture. Either way, back to the initial topic, this girl Christina Milan obviously exhibits Caucasoid traits due to Caucasoid ancestry, which would be overwhelmingly European since she’s from the New World.

Dogg March 16, 2015 at 11:42 pm

Aboriginals DO NOT look African, like at all. Dark skin doesn’t = African looking.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:04 pm

@Check 7t, you need to do your research, recent scientists have determined that Australoids ARE related to African negroids. Google it

memphis January 21, 2015 at 3:58 pm

Check7t, that’s the reason you sound like a “scientific racist” because you want to put African natives in a box. You obviously know nothing of indigenous Australians fight for civil rights. Like African Americans , indigenous Australians are very mixed when they used to be pitch black with wavy hair. However many identify socially “black”. You also know nothing about Sub Saharan African, who have almost every Y dna Haplogroup (A,B,DE, variants of E,J etc) genetic group and can have a variety of looks. Russians would have some Asian admixture since much of Russia is in Asia. If by Negroid, you mean big nose and big lips, you would find that Fulani,many Kenyans,Wooddabe and many others don’t look that way. Btw, yes Christina Milan has some Spanish ancestry (as do I) but identify as AA and Afro Cuban. To be “BLACK” isn’t about color of skin but culture, language and shared stories of perseverance. I’m “BLACK” but have Cuban, Middle Eastern, and Finnish ancestry. Brazilian Samba singer, Nenguin Beja day Flor, is dark as hell (meaning black skin) but his genetic results had him 61%Euro and 31% African.

memphis January 21, 2015 at 4:08 pm

I meant Neguinho da Beija Flor. Looks “BLACK” but genetically 67.1% Euro, 31.5% African and 1.4% Native. Christina is featured on a YouTube doc “Black and Latino”.

Dogg March 16, 2015 at 11:43 pm

You’re just another Afrocentrist nut.

midori29 January 19, 2015 at 7:40 am

@jj most bla ks in the Carribean and America are not pure black. Even white Americans are not pure white. Compare white Americans to white Europeans. They dont look the same , 7 times out of ten.

midori29 January 20, 2015 at 7:03 pm

@JJ, I do not see anything significantly white about her. If there is another race to argue mix, it would be Asian Indian NOT white.

Dogg March 16, 2015 at 11:44 pm

Of course she has white in her, she’s Cuban. All Cuban blacks have white in them and a large percentage of Cuba is mulatto. She looks totally mulatto. I would know because I have mulatto people in my family and they look like Christina.

Dogg March 16, 2015 at 11:44 pm

Of course she has white in her, she’s Cuban. All Cuban blacks have white in them and a large percentage of Cuba is mulatto.

Dogg January 2, 2015 at 7:26 am

Also she is one of the most beautiful biracial girls I’ve seen.

Dogg January 2, 2015 at 7:25 am

She’s a mulatto.

mr_classe November 13, 2014 at 12:03 pm

Jessica Alba has no black blood. Her ancestry DNA test performed on Finding Your Roots with Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr., showed she is a mix of indigenous Mexican and European, with a trace of Sephardic Jewish

Dogg January 2, 2015 at 7:26 am

Didn’t that test also show she had African ancestry?

memphis January 20, 2015 at 6:25 pm

2% sub Saharan/0.7 North African/middle east. Y dna E1b1a and e1b1b possibly the more Jewish E1a. All originating and migrated out of Africa. Y DNA E being the parent haplogroup originating in East Africa.

I’m not a fan but the grl is beautiful!!!and its rare that I say a female is pretty, let alone beautiful! Yes she’s cuban from Jerzzzy, my home state too! But as for “afro cuban” um..she sure doesnt look it.that’s the first I’ve heard. I’m latina too- dark hair, dark skin ( I’m colombiana) but I am neither “afro” latina or like jho-the white latina, yes jho is what we say white latina. So it just shows, WE COME IN ALL SHAPES SIZES AND COLORSSSS!! White ppl, pls understand that.y’all known for being ignorant to that! Christina is cuban-american and spanish is HER SECOND LANGUAGE! Idk why on a show she said english is her second language, ITS NOT. Its her FIRST, she was born on Ameican soil so therefore it is her first. Nice try christina..get it right, mami!

Jello July 20, 2014 at 3:03 pm

It is possible that her parents spoke English to her at home, which is what a lot of Hispanics not born in the US do. Even if they speak English, to maintain the language the kids are spoken to in Spanish.

fuzzybear44 July 21, 2014 at 5:35 am

How could you possibly know what was taught in her household?If she was raised like any of these latinos around here, then Spanish probably was her first language.That all you hear,is these girls screaming at their babies in Spanish. My brothers girlfriend is Afro-Cuban/ Salvadoran,and her first language was Spanish.She’s first gen, born here.

memphis January 20, 2015 at 6:28 pm

She is featured in a YouTube doc called Afro Latinos where she says that she came from Cuban parents and English was her second language.

Marseille June 18, 2014 at 5:24 pm

Afro-Cuban my ass — she would stand out like a sore thumb in Sub-Saharan Africa.

She looks like a typical tri-racial Latina to me, looks mixed and nothing more.

30% Negroid at the most, no more; she is not black.

Michella Murphy June 24, 2014 at 8:53 am

Apparently only certain people in America are allowed to tell black people how and when they are black, they did it in the Jim Crow era and they are doing it now! also, most of these people don’t understand the difference between ethnicity and race and are not aware that people of African descent are the most diverse people in the world, one drop rule has not changed!

Afro-Latino June 1, 2014 at 6:56 am

For those of you who doesn’t know what an Afro-Latino is let me explain since I am of afro-Latino descent. I am Afro-Honduran the difference between an Afro-Latino and a regular Latino is that Afro-Latino have predominantly strong African roots with little to no admixture. Regular Latinos like JLO have many admixture running through their DNA and their for cannot identify as one predominant race bc they share alil of all the indeginous people of Latin American. Ex. Native American, Spaniard, African etc.

WTF June 1, 2014 at 9:36 am

let me ask you a question AFRO-LATINO! can you please tell WHY some AFRO-LATINOS like to deny their african ancestry. SPECIFICALLY DOMINICANS! some of them be looking darker than an african american but yet their black ass will be saying “oh no i’m black! eww don’t call me black! i’m latino!!!!” tf is up with that shit? dominicanos and other afro-latinos need to own up to their african ancestry. it can be obvious af but yet they still claim they aren’t black. why are they self-haters? dominican sammy sosa bleached his skin bc he wanted to white. how sad!!!!!!!!

WTF June 1, 2014 at 9:37 am

i meant they say “i’m not black”

sararuiz April 23, 2014 at 5:43 pm

She’s kind of stupid.in an interview she once said she was a “Boricua”, little did she know that means she is Puerto Rican, which she isn’t. doubt she’s in touch with her culture

Why Afro Cuban? She’s just cuban and only her mother is dark, her father is white

Christina has European facial features and mixed European and African hair. Other than her dark skin, I doubt she has Predominantly African roots.
In the US culture she is considered black, but in the Caribbean culture she is plain and simple Cuban, not Afro-Cuban. She doesn’t have afro hair.

IDK,I’m looking at old pics of her:

The nose looks different.However it could just be traits.You can have those traits,and still be of (Predominantly African roots).I have cousins,who are more black than I am,and many of them have the Caucasoid phenotype.Which is why I always state,that Caucasian doesn’t mean your white.

My God. Judging from these comments, I can see just how far the education system has fallen. Flores is not a Greek last name. It’s Spanish. The Spanish (people from Spain) settled Cuba. Most Cubans are ethnically Spanish….from Spain. There is, however, an African element that was mixed into the island due to slavery. A decent amount of Africans settled in Cuba. She is probably 50/50…Cuban (Spanish) and African. All of her features look Spanish (white).

fuzzybear44 June 16, 2013 at 3:53 am

The pretty part,I without a doubt agree with

follers June 16, 2013 at 4:00 am

She’s mixed? So you don’t think she’s 100% Spanish Cuban?

andrew June 16, 2013 at 4:50 pm

100% spanish? what?!

follers June 16, 2013 at 10:18 pm

She could be 99% Spanish and 1% Greek or something, I guess.

andrew June 17, 2013 at 2:14 pm

greeks in cuba..a bit hard.

rajaredhilu November 29, 2013 at 3:10 pm

Dude it says shes “afro” cuban up there why the hell does that mean 99 percent spanish (from spain) 1 percent greek,
She isnt white
Shes Afro cuban which means she has indigenous cuban or taino blood, some white spainiard blood and then African blood.

me June 20, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Christina is gorgeous

sadie April 2, 2012 at 10:38 pm

me November 7, 2012 at 11:53 am

of course, she is very black,but she looks have some distant European and Native American in her.

PINK March 27, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Okay Lopac. So you mad because Yolo asked a simple question. You did not have to be direspectful about it. Yolo is not the only one who wanted to know the difference between a Afro Cuban & Cuban I wanted to know too & i`m sure more people wanted to know. If you was going to respond something mean you should of answer the question like a human would. & besides it was better to ask because theres nothing but people arguing back & forth to eachother, so you would`nt know who`s right or wrong. So before you try & call somebody a stupid cat get your Comprehension right because you sound stupid.

lopac April 2, 2012 at 10:44 pm

who the fuck are you

PINK April 7, 2012 at 12:59 pm

& who the fuck are you?

Yolo March 15, 2012 at 10:47 am

To lopac. I`m never a dummy so you better watch what you say you stupid dog!. I`m pretty sure that i`m not the only one who did`nt know the difference between a afro cuban and a cuban.

lopac March 15, 2012 at 6:05 pm

well next time learn. before you write non sense. stupid cat. je je je.

Yolo March 25, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Your the stupid cat. & the reason why I said that is because i`m not Cuban so ofcourse I would`nt know & that is why I was askig.

Color me purple March 27, 2012 at 5:31 pm

I agree with you Yolo & Pink..Lopac your a disrespectful dog!

I love you, Roger Scientist March 8, 2012 at 10:48 pm

She is seriously beautiful.

YOLO March 5, 2012 at 10:26 am

What is the difference between Afro cubans & cubans?

lopac March 5, 2012 at 2:41 pm

the difference is there are white cubans you dummy.

malik March 27, 2012 at 2:19 pm

NO THERE ARE NO WHITE CUBANS

=

THEY ARE MIXED

I love you, Roger Scientist March 8, 2012 at 10:47 pm
Lia February 18, 2012 at 3:38 pm

What Do You Mean “You Can Tell She Is Not Just Black. Look At Her Hair?” What Are You Talking About? Black Girls Can Have Good Her Hair Too. Look At Ethiopians And Eritreans Their Hair Is Better Then Hers.

What? February 17, 2012 at 8:08 pm

It is obviously she isn’t just black! Look at her hair! She looks black and a lil Spanish! Her daughter is black but she is mixed.

Lea February 15, 2012 at 6:58 pm

I have been reading a lot of these comments and I find them Hilarious… I am the same exact color as Christina Milian I was born in the U.S. and my parents are from Cuba. If someone asks me what I am I say I am of Cuban decent PERIOD…. and I am sure Christian Milian would say the same thing. Do I consider myself a latina YES because I am!!! So all this talk about trying to make her one or the other is just dumb!!!

janet February 5, 2012 at 12:09 am

with so gene pooling, and gene drifting, no one knows what they are mixed with anymore.

Dora February 4, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Well it says she is AFRO Cuban and the Afro! is there for a reason and so what she is what she is! Also its funny that the Latino’s here are proud that Milan is Latino why don’t they claim the blacks in Latin america. Christina is beautiful women if she was darker with curlier hair big lips I wonder how many Latinos would be proud to call her Latin then

Jose Lomba March 9, 2012 at 7:18 am

@Dora- true, but how many blacks then even be talking about her if she were dark with big lips and nappy hair.

Dora March 12, 2012 at 4:36 am

I didn’t really understand your question but yes the black audience would acknowledge if she was even darker and not such a pretty sight e.g. Maya Angelou is not the hottest black chick is she but she has my respect Michelle Obama est. And to be honest she is a artist in the media so she has to be attractive with her job reality

Jose Lomba March 12, 2012 at 8:25 am

@Dora, the difference is Maya Angelou is recognized as a writer, not an artist. An example of what I mean is this: Leila lopes is a mulatta from Angola who won Miss Universe. Even before she won, black people were saying that she’s 100% African. The problem is, that no black person gave a hoot about the prior 100% black Miss Angolas as evidenced by the facy that there were very few discussions about them, if any.

Cubana November 20, 2011 at 3:09 pm

I went to Cuba in 1996 with a group from my University. When I shared my itenerary with my grandfather (born in Santa Clara 1927 and raised in Havana) there was a notation that we were visiting Atarés “an Afro Cuban neighborhood” and my grandfather laughed and said that all of Cuba is an AfroCuban neighborhood- the music, religion, food, and just over all way of behaving, in particular in Havana is “afro”, regardless of skin color.

White skinned Cubans wear “collares” reflecting their participation in santería, they dance “son”, and play the “tambores”, and walk with “tumbao” (swagger & rhythm- u know, like our president!).

U get the point!

Lea February 15, 2012 at 7:02 pm

THANK YOU this is soooooo true!!!!!!!!!

liyah July 20, 2011 at 5:11 pm

She’s afro cuban i think we can all see a difference between her and Jennifer lopez seriously. I know J-lo is Puerto Rican but it’s the fact that they are both latinas.

elohor November 19, 2011 at 11:18 pm

christina millian is a beautiful black cuban and the fact that she speaks spanish dosen’t make her a latina

fiel November 20, 2011 at 2:19 pm

She is from Cuba and she speaks spanish that makes her latina. Her blackness doesn’t cancel it out. Just like how Blacks’ African heritage doesn’t make them not American and whites’ euro heritage doesn’t make them not American. Ethnicity is not a single category almost all of us are a mix.

Samira January 1, 2012 at 5:41 am

LATINO isn’t a race, it’ s a culture, an ethnicity. She is BLACK (well she looks more mulatta to me) and LATINA. PERIOD.

Amber.Berg July 20, 2011 at 9:10 am

Well there are black people in America that dont like being called African American does that mean that none of them like the term no. Alot of just want to be called American! However, we still African descendents stop trying to white wash people, there are also white cubans and Im sure they are proud because a lot of them are racist as hell!

Papa Legba July 20, 2011 at 1:28 am

By the way, for anyone who cares. Recently there was an article in the Havana Times interview “Afro Cubans” who many said that they didn’t like the term, they knew very well who they were and that they descended either partially or fully from African Slaves brought to Cuba, but that the term itself made them feel like they were less Cuban than white Cubans, since white Cubans would just be called “Cubans” while they had the hyphen added to them as if they were not as Cuban.

blanca March 15, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Well they arent, are they? They are descendants of slaves… they should feel lucky to be able to add the hyphen of Cuban. No one would care if they just called themselves African, its always you blacks complaining about race, complaining about this complaining about that, shut up and do something and stop blaming everyone for everything

I love you, Roger Scientist March 16, 2012 at 12:36 am

Deuces.
