I hate when have black ppl only consider them selves just black no…your one or more that other race helped make you so be proud of it!

And I hate when “white” people deny that they have African ancestry….no. It seems like Johnny Depp is the only one who’s proud of ALL of his heritage.

I know right? It’s especially stupid when they look predominately white and they STILL label themselves as black. Mariah Carey for example…………….

i hate it when white people think they have all the authority to tell others what they are, in the Jim Crow days, you just had to have “one drop” of black blood to be black, now, its a different story. If Mariah feels black, she is effin’ black, leave her alone!

Black men get around & sleep with ALL kinds of women , white,black,Asian,Hispanic. That’s why to this day especially now in the 21st century there all so many people that are of mixed race. A Majority are half black !

Actually the Eurasian population is growing now. There’s so many half Asians where I live. Only a few mulattoes.

luckily she’s black.. All thnks to her pappi.. Beautiful!

She’s also Puerto Rican and Chinese. I hate Afrocentrics who deny any other ethnicity a mixed person has in their blood.

HeckNo August 31, 2011 at 2:11 pm

I actually went to H.S. with her and I don’t care what the hell you are mixed with, a bad attitude makes you UGLY. Period. She was snooty then and I can see she is still snooty now. I find that African blood is more dominant than Asian blood and Asian blood more so than Caucasian blood. Non are superior or inferior then the next but you can see it in celebs like Amerie (Asian and Black) and Kate Gosselin’s kids.

Mari July 7, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Kelis is pretty. Now don’t you think it would be quite silly of her to insist that she isn’t black?
