He looks like a pit bull in this photo. Can the admin please change it and replace it with a better picture of him?

he has definitely IRISH DESCENT

look at his green eyes

typical case of black with irish roots
plus i have read years ago when he was a rap star that he wrote that his grand grandmother was raped by a white

I knew he was mixed, he didn’t look fully black. His wife is a whore btw.

Creole does not mean mixed all the time. There are BLACK creoles. Creole is just an ethnicity. I know a few light skin black guys who look like Ice T with his high yellow skin tone and all and they are not mixed anytime recently. And Ive met 100 percent Africans black with his skin tone.

Well you’re right,first and foremost it’s a cultural identity or ethnicity. Also yes there are Black Creoles, Yellow Creoles ,White Creoles and so on. However the Black skin ones can be just as mixed as the Yellow ones. Most Creoles are multi- generational types, and therefore you will get all kinds of skin tones , Hair type etc in the families.( I know you know this, that was for the people who didn’t)

You’ll get a lot of them. AA’s are just as much multi- generational types as Creoles are. My sister-in-laws family are all yellow skin, and they’ve never seen a white person in the family(and I know all the way up to the great grandmother)

I always thought he was Blaxican tbh.

SNOWDEN July 13, 2014 at 11:28 pm

ice t is half white thats why he loves white women

fuzzybear44 July 15, 2014 at 5:34 pm

That’s as silly as saying robert de niro is half black, because he married a black woman.

perez-richart September 25, 2015 at 11:17 am

YOU AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE REALLY SOMETHING. ALWAYS CLAIMING TO BE SOMEONE YOU ARE NOT. OK SOME OF YOU ARE MXED BUT SOME ARE DEINATELY NOT. REMEMBER THERE ARE SOME VERY LIGHT BLCK PEOPLE. LETS TAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THE AFRICANS, MOST OF THEM ARE NOT MIXED AT ALL BUT THEY COME IN DIFFERENT SHADES. EXAMPLE THE SOUTH SAHARAN ARE NOT MIXED AND LIVE IN THE OLD FASHIONED AFRICAN WAYS. HAVE YOU GUYS WATCHED “THE GOD’S MUST BE CRAZY”? MOST OF THEM HAVE PROBABLY NOT SEEN A WHITE PERSON BEFORE AND NOW BECAUSE THEY ARE LIGHT SKINNED BLACK PEOPLE, THERE’S A THEORY THAT COMES UP SAYING THAT THEY ARE PART CHINESE OR JAPANESE. AFRICANS ARE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE AND COME IN DIFFERENT SHADES. IF SOME ONE LOOKS GORGEOUS,YOU PEOPLE ALWAYS CLAIM THAT THEY CANT BE PURE BLACK.SHOWS HOW AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE NOT PROUD TO BE BLACK. THEY ALWAYS CLAIM TO BE 5% OR 10% BLACK AND WHITE 80%, THIS IS JUST CRAZY. ATLEAST SAY YOU ARE 80% BLACK AND 20% SOMETHING ELSE. IN THE LAST 20 YEARS THERES HAS BEEN ALOT OF INTERMARRIAGE AND MIXING OF RACES WHICH IS GOOD.BUT PLEASE, MOST OF YOU PEOPLE ARE NOT PROUD TO BE WHO YOU ARE. I PITTY YOU. LOOK AT OBAMA 50% BLACK KENYAN AND 50% WHITE AMERICAN. HE IS PROUD TO BE BLACK.YOU SHOULD TO.

@betty boo

(YOU AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE REALLY SOMETHING. ALWAYS CLAIMING TO BE SOMEONE YOU ARE NOT. OK SOME OF YOU ARE Mixed BUT SOME ARE Definitely NOT)

How do you know which are mixed with something,and which ones are not?Also what are they claiming to be?

(REMEMBER THERE ARE SOME VERY LIGHT BLaCK PEOPLE. LETS TAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THE AFRICANS, MOST OF THEM ARE NOT MIXED AT ALL BUT THEY COME IN DIFFERENT SHADES)

This is true,Africa is a big place.It has different environmental conditions,which causes different skin tone variation.

(EXAMPLE THE SOUTH SAHARAN ARE NOT MIXED AND LIVE IN THE OLD FASHIONED AFRICAN WAYS. HAVE YOU GUYS WATCHED “THE GOD’S MUST BE CRAZY”? MOST OF THEM HAVE PROBABLY NOT SEEN A WHITE PERSON BEFORE AND NOW BECAUSE THEY ARE LIGHT SKINNED BLACK PEOPLE, THERE’S A THEORY THAT COMES UP SAYING THAT THEY ARE PART CHINESE OR JAPANESE.)

Yes I know all about the Khoisan or bushmen.However your a bit mistaken,they’re very familiar with white people.White people are forever trying to live with the bushmen.Especially since the government is trying to stop their hunter-gatherer life style.Bushmen have been all over the different continents,leaving their mark:

Now as to them being Chinese,I don’t think so.Many Africans share that phenotypical trait.Before Africans were given the name Negroid, they were called mongoloid(if I’m not mistaken).Anyhow as quiet as it is kept,Asian was full of little black people at one time.Incoming waves of humans just push them out,intermarried,or killed them.You see them on those little Islands(Andamanese peoples).I still think there are small numbers on the main land.

(YOU PEOPLE ALWAYS CLAIM THAT THEY CANT BE PURE BLACK.SHOWS HOW AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE NOT PROUD TO BE BLACK.)

Now which AA’s are talking about?You obviously haven’t read the AA’s comments on here,that’s the last thing they would say.

(THEY ALWAYS CLAIM TO BE 5% OR 10% BLACK AND WHITE 80%)

Who has stated this?I think you have it backwards.

(IN THE LAST 20 YEARS THERE’S HAS BEEN A LOT OF INTERMARRIAGE AND MIXING OF RACES)

Baby that’s been happening since the start,not just 20yrs

fuzzybear44 May 3, 2013 at 5:30 am

*(Now which AA’s are talking about),meant to put (you) in there

fuzzybear44 May 3, 2013 at 9:03 am

(However your a bit mistaken)

neiltennant January 2, 2016 at 1:57 pm

why YOU AFRICAN AMERICANS what?

I know you’re not AA, and I never said you were. I also understand that you like to discuss ethnicity, so do I. However when it comes to AA a lot of us don’t know our full bloodlines, so we can’t talk about what we don’t know

Mixed breed August 13, 2013 at 11:34 am

what do you mean “you african americans” just because our skin color is dark we cannot be of mixed descent such as hispanic or native american, you have got some nerve whoever you think you are to judge others by their race.

christian March 24, 2012 at 3:31 pm

he is african american true, but he has typical shaped irish eyes

sometimes they look greenish, he must have some british or irish blood

Ashley January 24, 2012 at 5:55 pm

My father is Louisiana Creole. We are NOT “white”. We are of African, French, and Native American descent. Everything or just about that makes up my homestate of Louisiana, particularly the southeast. There are also Haitian Creoles, very similar to Louisiana Creoles. Cajuns (Acadians) are “white”. Get it right.

bre December 2, 2011 at 7:23 pm

i thought he was black and white but no he is like beyonce and solahnge and he same age as michael jackson and prince and madonna cool

ena March 24, 2012 at 12:47 pm

The original creoles were white from france and Spain they were children of Europeans who were born in America

iii April 2, 2012 at 4:00 am

CREOLES ARE BLACK PEOPLE FROM Louisiana

andrew March 11, 2013 at 10:34 am

fuzzybear44 May 3, 2013 at 4:21 am

@ena

That is not true,creole/criollos or criollas was written about 500yrs ago by(Garcilaso de la Vega,and Father J. de Acosta in 1590 ) .Whites adopted the term from the blacks .
