Hmm some of you talk a lot of things that you do not know.
Ok I am Trini so I can tell you, when the term Afro-Trinidadian is used it means, a black trini. Yes because of our culture most trinis are mixed, some more than others. It is common to see a dougla trini look mostly negro and not indian yet oe of their parents are indian. It is also common to see an indian woman have a baby with a white man and the child either come out looking pure white or pure east indian. We are used to this and it is not a problem, I think for a country that has so many immigrants you guys would get over the whole idea of what a mixed race person SHOULD look like. Who cares it is 2012, move on with your lives

YES YOUR SO RIGHT.

I couldn’t have said it better sista.

I’m Half Trini and half my Great grant uncles and aunts range in looks between Vanessa Williams and Gabrielle Reece.

Oddly Enough my grandmother looks like a Arawak Indian lol.

I think unless your from Brazil or a country with alot of Creole people its hard to understand the amount of diversity you can have with mixed people.

Ive see two dark people make a light baby and to light people make a dark baby.

Most Americans first reaction is that the mother must be cheating.

I think that is awesome she has african ancestry. I love the fact that she is mixed with black and doesn’t look nothing at all because you do not have to look black to be mixed with black. So to those racist people you must be sad because she is a beautiful women and you racist whites cannot claim her lol suck it. I have a son with a white men he looks very southern european looking doesn’t look black.

Being a volleyball enthusiast, Reece gained numerous awards and earned a scholarship and majored in Communications. That must have been her stepping stone. Now, she is a popular model and has been awarded as one of the five most beautiful women in the world. She is featured in the new issue of OCEAN Style with a link back to the digital version of the magazine for them to read/view: http://issuu.com/oceanstylemag/docs/v6002

Kurt January 26, 2011 at 6:32 pm

You know i think her dad was born in Trinidad in an Anglo-saxon family, and just because he was born in Trinidad they say he is black, it must be that because you can see she is not black AT ALL!!!

Mark Reece Healey April 29, 2011 at 8:00 am

Kurt,

You are correct. I am of mixed race – both my parents were born in Trinidad. In fact, my mother was a Reece and was Gabrielle Reece’s late father’s cousin ( which ultimately makes Gabrielle and myself, third cousins!) My mother is mainly white although she disputes that the Reece’s were of mixed race……

James Reece April 29, 2011 at 8:58 am

I’m here to say Mark is full of Sh$t.You and Kurt have got to be the two dumbest racist people I’ve ever seen.Comments like she doesn’t look black,shows the total lack of knowledge you have.It’s proven a number of times on this site,that many times bi-racial kids can come out white.if you had paid attention you would have seen this,and you wouldn’t say such stupid things.Idk,maybe I should cut you some slack,maybe you truly don’t know any better.Anyhow bi-racial kids have a 50/50 chance of being white.Also if the black parent is not pure,the chances go up even more,example Victoria Roswell daughter

clearly people don’t know what happens when a half black half person has offspring with a white person! halle berry is the famous example along with Paula Patterson!

to mixed race woman from white woman who clearly have to feel extra black..but have children with white men?

whats wrong with Black men?? ok whats right with some of them??

I’m form a black Jamaican woman and a white father! my hubby is Russian! and omg..no matter what shade light or dark there is no saying its black or white! its Mixed-race! all hell would brake lose if little Nahla or “Victoria Roswell Daughter” were to have relations with a black man! god for bid they have children with that race!!

mixed-race people can claim to be black or white! you just cant your part of both! you can say you were raised (insert the ethnic of your choice) but you say your 100% black because even black people from the west are not 100% black until black people stop having the white man last name! then i can say your black till then! nada

@mark

You say your her family,then tell her to make a youtube video or something stating that she not part black or take dna test,that way we will know.Until then you could be some crackhead from down the street for all we know

My mother is African-Caribbean (black), my father was white. I married a white man and my son is blond and blue eyed with white skin, although he tans beautifully. Reece talked about her dad being half-black in Shape magazine many years ago. She said something about her butt being high and round and that’s how you could tell she was mixed with black (sorry, for that very poor paraphrase).

Md April 7, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Kurt you must be a white person. Because non people of color have a hard time with the hole skin color automatically equals your race thing. I have plenty Plenty of family members that look like her and are “black” that is the legacy of our heritage.any old school people in my family chose to “pass” others didn’t. This same thing happened throughout the America’s. When you are racially mixed you can come out looking like anything. From Halle berry to Barack Obama to jennifer beak to Adriana Lima etc… You can pull from all of your ancetors genetics and look like a new race entirely. In America she would be considered black based on her ancestry and that’s Europeans who create that system. If you have any black ancestor people automatically ignore the rest and classify you as black for historic reasons. So yellow skinned people am with african ancestors are considered black even though they are yellow, brown skinned, green eyes, caramel, gold, chocolate, white etc… Are considered black. We are very diverse.

Kurt January 26, 2011 at 6:24 pm

Black??? what kind of bullS… is that?, she doesn’t have neither a 0,0000000001 of black.

fuzzybear January 26, 2011 at 11:31 pm

To Kurt

The only bullS here is your silly theory.What’s the matter,she doesn’t fit your silly stereotype.Because if that’s the case your in for a rude awaking.There are millions and millions of mulattoes who have white phenotypes.Then it does say Afro-Trinidadian,which could mean the father had a mixture to him(and I say could mean),which is why she came out white looking
