So her WHITE dad left her? I just want to let y’all racist saltines know that it’s not only black men that leave their kids, white men do that shit too. All races of men abandon their kids. My black grandfathers didn’t abandon their children, it’s basically a stereotype. Her father ain’t shit.

Yep, there’s “ain’t shit” men in every race.. but why tf do you care so much about what racists think anyway? Every race has had something bad said to them. People have been racist towards me and people I know, but do I give a fuck? Hell no, I keep going on with my life. Fuck what they think. Only close-minded, stupid, sheltered believe negative stereotypes.

I’m so happy that y’all listed her father’s ethnicity as “European” rather than “Caucasian”…I rip my eyes out every time I see “Caucasian” listed as an ethnicity on this website! Hahahaha I mean, the term “European,” although not too specific, is much more accurate than the term “Caucasian” when describing a “white” person. :) Thank you for that!

Evans is a Welsh surname you can find eveywhere in British Isles. And in NJ there are a lot of ppl of Italian descent. So her dad she could easily be of British/Italian/Irish extraction

Since when is Caucasian an ethnicity?

Anyway I’m sure the ‘Caucasian’ part is Italian? She has almond Italian eyes.

almond Italian eyes? what?

Caucasian is an ethnicity in Russia and its mostly referred to people who lives in caucus region of Caucasian mountain.
just saying.

Not beautiful, but gorgeous!

Amber Berg, all the woman you named are mixed.

Jay Dub January 8, 2012 at 2:18 am

Where did you get the idea that all of the women Amber named were mixed? None of those women(except for maybe Meghan) are mixed…at least, no more mixed than most African Americans. None of them define themselves as anything but “black”. It seems as if your point was that they are “mixed” and therefore, “not ugly” suggesting that only black, non-mixed women are to be considered “ugly” or “unattractive”.

miss truth August 13, 2011 at 12:04 pm

hahahah more ugly white people i think u got your cane rolls too tight! african americans have always and will always be inferior and uglier then whites! the koolaide and hotdogs for breakfast must have affected your mind hunny.

AMBER BERG August 13, 2011 at 8:01 pm

That’s Your Opinion!

black wallstreet November 24, 2010 at 5:55 am

Mainly because of her black side, the black side tends to uglify genetics.

black wallstreet November 24, 2010 at 6:53 am

look here faker,Your to stupid,anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t write anything that dumb

folusha November 26, 2010 at 12:56 pm

stfu, there are way more ugly whites than the whole entire population of black people in america

Margaret May 20, 2011 at 6:18 am

Why does everybody have to have such a thick racial layer in their eyes? This hate is ridiculous and has to end already which I thought it had decades ago. We are ALL people and human beings regardless of our diverse race and culture.

SaySay208 December 19, 2010 at 11:18 pm

That was very ignorant of you, there’s pretty and ugly in all races. I hope whenever you have kids I hope your genetics don’t uglify them, while you are busy calling other people ugly.

Nope January 8, 2012 at 2:16 am

Well, what’s your ethnicity? Whatever it is, that’s the side that tends to stuplify genetics! F-in moron!!!

Bri January 27, 2009 at 1:24 pm
