Can’t believe she was with that oldass racist Clint Eastwood who is a KNOWN racist. Some black/mixed women are so desperate for some white d!ck that they throw away their morals and any self-respect that they have for a night with a white man.

I’m just surprised she mess with that old of a guy. Wait Clint Eastwood is racist? I didn’t know that, what did he do or say?

She stated that she was the target of racial slurs in elementary school, I guess little Asian and white kids can be mean (assuming she when to school in Fremont )

I thought she was Irish,African and Middle Eastern.

I can’t wait to see her new reality show. I like DRE because she was always honest about her ethnic origins. Back in the day, people hid their racial mixtures. In California, it is so easy to blend-in. Love her!

You mean all AA music, or just music after the year 2000? because if it’s after the year 2000, I can understand

Good to see that we have another fine example of multiracial acceptance & beauty in the public eye! I Love It! May we continue to grow as we are and continue to thrive forever! :)
