Me asking your gender, is no different than when you asked me if I was African American. It wasn’t something you really needed to know. but it didn’t stop you from asking the question

cwm85 September 14, 2015 at 9:04 pm

I asked you for your race because of your bias and afrocentric views. Everyone with any trace of african ancestry you claim makes them “black” A lot of African-Americans share those views. I disagree with those views tho.

@cwm85

Well first let’s get this out the way. Calling me afrocentric doesn’t do a thing. I see that word as a scapegoat for a person who doesn’t have the brain power to out talk me. However if loving my black ancestry is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

I never once made a comment like that. That’s your little brain working overtime

cwm85 September 15, 2015 at 7:59 am

I’ve read your comments. I can come to my own conclusions, you try to make everyone with any hint of African ancestry no matter how small black. Its clear what your agenda is on here. Your a “black” trool, liken M, Midori29. You all hate and dispute anyone who claim to be mixed. Don’t reply to me anymore. I see your agenda.

I’ve also looked at your comments, and my conclusion is, that you’re a hypocrite. When it come to the black looking mixed celebs, you’re all about embracing all your heritage. Here you are on Alicia Keys page

That’s your opinion. Some of the mixtures come from grandparents or great grand parents and of course if your grandparents are other race you are part of it too. Are you really that ignorant?

Yet when it comes to a white looking mixed celeb who’s Black ancestry is proven like Shailene Woodley, you completely switch up.

I bet she doesn’t even acknowledge her black ancestry, and I highly doubt she considers herself a woman of color.

Your response

Ummm.. why should she?

Even when it comes to Latin people, you try to minimize the African contribution. Like with the Puerto Rican DNA chart you put up. It clearly was proven that on the Avg, the African contribution was higher than the native, but you still tried to switch it up

Quote-you try to make everyone with any hint of African ancestry no matter how small black.

I want you to show me one of my comments where I said that. I use the words (Ancestry or Heritage). I don’t call anyone black, who doesn’t call themselves that. I know your game, it’s obviously you’re some first generation mixed up troll, who’s mad he’s not fully white. So no need to reply to me anymore. I see your agenda.

cwm85 September 16, 2015 at 12:14 am

I’m not angry that I’m white. In fact I’m glad I’m not fully white. I’m glad I am of multiple ethnic backgrounds. You are mad because you are African-American and know nothing of your own heritage, ethnic groups so you try to minimize us who know and are proud. You are a black, jealous troll.

cwm85 September 16, 2015 at 12:24 am

You’re a loser dude. Who is jealous of me and upset that people who are multiracial like me, Tiger woods, Obama, alicia keys etc any other celebs who acknowledge their other ethnic groups other than African side. You are like M, midiori 29 and her many other trool aliases to attack those who are biracial. I have never attacked African-Americans or anyone. I have simply estimate people’s admixtures. The dna of people from Puerto Rico that I got oneline from a test had HIGHER native American percentages . Just a fact not because I have something against African descent. Again, I’m very proud of African heritage. My mother is full African-American. It is in my dna and I love my mother and love my African-American family members and am proud and thankful for people like Dr.King who fought for our rights. Now quote that when you try to copy and paste my comments. I’m proud to have african ancestry as am I of my european and native ancestry. Now fuck off fuzzybear44!

Actually I’m from Louisiana Creole stock. That culture kept better records of it’s people, so I know quite a bit about my heritage( so no not Jealous). However, aren’t you half African American yourself. So even if you knew a little about your white ancestry, your black ancestry is still missing(hence no different than the avg AA you’re trying to put down.)

Again with the word jealous. As I said before please find one comment from me, where I say you shouldn’t embrace your heritage. That I called someone black, that doesn’t already call them self that(go ahead I’ll wait). By the way, Obama and Alicia keys both call themselves black people for the record.

This actually has nothing to do with jealousy, but has everything to do with you contradicting comments to the African contribution to peoples ethnic makeup. How you try to minimize it as much as possible

like this here:

cwm85 August 22, 2015 at 6:16 am -Troian Bellisario page

She’s basically Caucasian. She has more European ancestry than african. Her mom is mixed, her dad is white. She’s like less than a quarter black…

yet with Rob Schneider you say this

cwm85 August 2, 2015 at 3:39 pm – Rob Schneider

I always thought he looked different from the other portrayed Caucasians in films. Now, we know why. He’s a quartet Filipino. He’s not exactly white.

that’s a double standard

or this right here with Yanet Garcia when we were talking about the avg African Contribution to the Avg Mexican mestizo

cwm85 September 2, 2015 at 5:08 pm – yanet Garcia page

3 to 8 percent is not much and not noticeable in phenotype. Its insignificant admixture.

Yet right here on Anderson cooper page

cwm85 August 7, 2015 at 8:26 am -anderson cooper

Only 1/16th that’s like 6 precent. I’m 1/16th native american with a Last name McDonald. Mixing is the name. Generations of mixing in my case since I’m African, English, Scottish too.

Now you’re only 6% native. The way you’ve been going on about you ancestry, I thought you were Geronimo himself. I guess 6% to you is only an insignificant admixture when it’s an African contribution

Now As I said before, this has nothing to do with being jealous. I’m probably just as mixed if not more mixed than you are. This is about your contradicting comments

LucarioCooper September 12, 2015 at 6:49 pm

Nice looking guy.

cwm85 July 29, 2015 at 7:41 pm

He favors me A lot… we could pass for brothers…

cwm85 July 21, 2015 at 3:58 pm

I favor him and I’m black, European and native mix too. Interesting… We have same eyes and complexion…

@cwm

Are you a he or she?

cwm85 September 13, 2015 at 12:02 pm

No comment

cwm85 September 13, 2015 at 12:06 pm

Just know me and him could pass as brothers. No jewish ancestry that I know of. But my researcher discovered yet another ethnic group is part of my paternal grandfather side. Cherokee. So African-American, english, Scottish, Navajo and Cherokee are part of my mixtures. Wow.

fuzzybear44 September 13, 2015 at 12:29 pm

@cwm
