Any who assumes someone is pure black are crazy. Almost everyone is of specific ethnic backgrounds. Flo Rida’s father is of Middle Eastern descent. You can see a picture of him here:

ultimateflofan September 9, 2009 at 6:09 am

It says on Wikipedia right now that Flo Rida is of Haitian and Persian descent.

boss February 18, 2012 at 2:28 am

no you lie

it doesnt say anything about persian

stop lying

ultimateflofan August 22, 2009 at 9:38 am

@ethnic Flo Rida’s mixed. His father is part middle eastern whether or not you see it.

ethnic August 22, 2009 at 2:02 pm

He might have middle eastern heritage but I have yet to see any good sources that say he is part middle Eastern. If you find a good article on the net that says that then Ill believe it.

sweetiepie August 20, 2009 at 12:17 pm

Flo Rida’s father is Persian.

ethnic August 20, 2009 at 6:13 pm

Thanks for the link. I think he looks Black rather than Persian.

Ja Inc. August 22, 2009 at 9:34 am

Flo Rida doesn’t look pure black, you idiot.

ethnic August 22, 2009 at 1:59 pm

Ja Inc, I didn’t say he was purely black. Most African Americans are mixed but i goes back generations so it is hard to say what exactly theyre mixed with. having said that, I have yet to see any good sources that say he is part middle Eastern.

ultimateflofan August 18, 2009 at 3:07 pm

Here is also a photo with him and rick ross for his 29th Birthday Bash celebrated in September:

He doesn’t look pure African American anymore. Doesn’t he?

ethnic August 18, 2009 at 5:54 pm

Thanks for the links. The party was held on the 5th of October so we can assume September 17th is more accurate than Dec 16th.

I couldn’t find anything about him being Middle Eastern though. Do you have a link for that?

ultimateflofan August 20, 2009 at 4:42 am

you can tell by his father at 1:05 when he performed on the today show:

AnothaSpicFromLA April 16, 2009 at 3:21 am

He was born on September 17 and of mixed race.

détester March 17, 2009 at 5:26 am

Flo Rida is severly half white.

souljaboy2471 March 17, 2009 at 5:24 am

Flo Rida’s probably White French because a lot of mulatto Haitians are of that descent.
