I am a black man, and I love me some white women, no chocolate women; caramel is sexy but WHITE is superior.

... December 22, 2013 at 11:51 am

So, by default, your mom is inferior, your grandma is inferior, your great-grandma is inferior, and you are inferior because you are the product of them.

Why do you hate yourself so much, David?

theropod July 17, 2013 at 7:54 am

If I were to see him as a non-famous guy walking in the street I’d immediately would think that he’s Maltese or Greek.

nnnnn May 10, 2013 at 12:17 am

ItalianoHaitian April 1, 2013 at 8:42 pm

His mother’s surname is Lemke, perhaps he has German in him as well.

Anonymous April 5, 2012 at 7:11 pm

his dad isnt even full black, making kris not even a ‘half’ . March 22, 2012 at 5:42 pm

bcuz i was saying kim like black men how she switch to white only to see hes half blck/nig. i was like orrrrrrrrr thats why. so he has a long black dingdong “cocky”


trini whore March 22, 2012 at 5:39 pm

hmmm wudda never thought he was half “Nig”

George March 20, 2012 at 12:24 am

Ok, people. Let me educate you. People are saying he is half black half white, What people dont realize is yes his father is black but he also has irish ancestry which is why is fair skined. Meaning when you mix that with more European blood, the person will mostly turn out looking more white than anything. I myself look more white even though im mixed. My mother is english and german and my father is Afro-Trinidadian Native American and French Cajun. Meaning he isnt full black either. Most bi racials have one straight black parent and one white. Which is why they turn out looking more black. Just somthing i wanted to let you all know

Kyle March 20, 2012 at 8:04 pm

George: You are completely wrong, and yes he is half white and half black.

Anya March 21, 2012 at 3:08 pm

He isn’t wrong, his Dad is of mixed heritage.

Shanika March 26, 2012 at 11:50 am

His dad is mixed Kris said himself on his dad side of fam have irish.why deny it we are here to find out all of people ethnicity..

jttaino January 11, 2013 at 5:34 pm

i agree 100%.

ignorant killer 2 March 16, 2012 at 5:44 pm

that’s the black taylor lautner ha ha ha.

M March 19, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Taylor Lautner is black as well, he just doesn’t claim it.

Da X mann April 1, 2012 at 12:52 am

Taylor lautner is not black Ignorant! he is of native and European decent. I know all you blacks want everybody to be black. because ya’ll suffer from inferiority complex.

exotiq April 6, 2013 at 8:30 am

Why do people like to argue about someone’s ancestry? I always say “DNA don’t lie!” To say that Kris is the “black Taylor Lautner” sounds ridiculous at best since Kris doesn’t even look black to begin with! In fact, if you didn’t know his ancestry, you would never suspect.

It’s true that the more non-black ancestry a person has, the more non-black they will look—Common sense. People need to accept that when a person is made up of a certain racial mixture, that is who they are, and how they identify, is just that, how they Identify and you just need to respect it and ACCEPT IT.

If someone has issue with how another identifies, the problem is not with the person who chooses to identify themselves as how they truly feel, …the problem lies with the accuser—maybe you need to look within yourself and question why you have a problem with how another identifies….

AnonymousPerson January 4, 2014 at 8:17 am

B1tch please, it obvious that Taylor has black in him. He doesn’t look white whatsoever. He looks multiracial. Black, Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, Native American, and White.

marjanel April 17, 2014 at 9:52 pm

Hispanic is not a race

Anya March 16, 2012 at 5:42 pm

This may seem weird…but sometimes he reminds me of Ryan Philippe

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Isn’t he suing Kim?

tae March 15, 2012 at 3:50 pm

He looks mostly white unlike most biracials

Anon March 10, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Kris’ dad is FINE! A true DILF! Look at those beautiful eyes and incredible bone structure! I always knew Kris must come from good genes..but damn..I didn’t know they were THAT good!

Anyone who ends up with Kris is going to have a fine looking older man when he ages! =)

kaYla March 9, 2012 at 5:48 am

he is kinda cute,was not fond of him at first,but i think he ok now,maybe because he left her,

Duh, It's Nai! March 1, 2012 at 3:36 pm

i’m not surprised … i already knew this. always mistake him for that other black/canandian b-ball player lol

Lovely February 24, 2012 at 4:12 am

AnonymousPerson January 4, 2014 at 8:18 am

He dont look black at all, i don’t see’s a but he has black in him, so he black then

juice January 15, 2012 at 12:10 am

One is led to believe that america is a progressive country but I beg to differ! I’m a south africa, black lady. In south africa, we recognise a person’s full genetic make-up; I truly believe that this 1 drop rule or whatever its called is unfair. We have coloureds (mixed race people- people who have been mixed for centuries), then we have our biracial people (I.e. Famous comedian trevor noah), then blacks of various tribes (my dad is Sotho and my mum is xhosa- I identify with my mum’s tribe).

adiba M January 14, 2012 at 11:22 am

look Kris’s father in America is African American and should be proud of his roots I found Kris no where in the Kardashian show saying his father is African American even though I don’t care but it’s OK

Tom January 12, 2012 at 8:16 am

Hi – It is easy to see that Kris’ father is of mixed race (I read half-black and half-white), so that does not make him “black” and therefore Kris would be no more than 1/4th AF-AM, if I read the facts correctly.

Chris February 15, 2012 at 5:41 pm

What does that matter? Almost all so-called African-Americans have some European in them. If you want to know why a person like Kris Humphries is “black”, you need to look to European-Americans that set up the system. My grandmother on my father side is of some white ethnicity and my greatfather on my mother side is Irish, but I’m sure if you saw me you would say that I am “black”. This is how it works in the US especially.

George February 18, 2012 at 3:01 pm

seriously stop with that shit. If its from 200 years ago how can you count that as mixed? People are talking about the NOW and if you have two parents of DIFFERENT races then you are mixed. Why do people bring in the whole “all african americans are mixed with somthing” …its from 200 years ago wtf. do you honeslty count that? no.

britt February 26, 2012 at 4:59 pm

@George You just proved Chris’s point.

What? February 17, 2012 at 8:31 pm

His dad looks like he is somewhat mixed. Maybe with some Indian.

Liam O'Connel February 29, 2012 at 8:38 pm

no not indian, it clearly states that his father has an irish grandmother. Chris’ mother is also irish hence meaning chris is more than 50% Irish

Samira January 3, 2012 at 9:41 am

Kris is quadroon not biracial.

Linda K Drummond January 20, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Samira is correct; Kris Humphries is 1/4 black and 3/4 white, not half and half. Kris Humphries father is half and half. Kris’s grandfather was mostly (or all) of black ancestry and his mother was white. In the 1800’s, Kris would have been referred to as a quadroon.

Liam O'Connel December 27, 2011 at 6:27 am

why does it say he has a black father?…his father is biracial, not black. I think whoever made this is just trying to sweep his fathers heritage under the carpet (which is ironic since the whole purpose of this site is to reveal the persons actual etnicity

jane December 18, 2011 at 9:25 pm

no offense, but what kind of breakdown is this?
caucasian american? come on now… i guess thats all you can tell.. hes black and white, right? need more info on this one

NANAN December 17, 2011 at 8:02 am

LOL” HUMP”hries XD Am i the only immature one :S

Maria December 15, 2011 at 3:18 pm

His voice is so annoying!

Mike December 13, 2011 at 4:26 pm

He is not black! He is more white.He look like he is from a latin country.Just like hally berry little girl she wil be white not negro

Roger December 9, 2011 at 6:06 pm

In some Latin Ameican countries like Brazil and Cuba he is considered “White”. They have a distorted view of race and class it by “skin color”. There are a lot of pale Mullatos like Kris who classify themselves as “White” because their African father breeder with a light-skin mother to avoid the stigma of being “black”. Now that “caste” system is sad.

me December 11, 2011 at 7:37 am

you are mistaken in saying that Brazilian people are ignorant

Roger December 11, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Where does it say that I called them “ignorant”? I only said try have a misconception, not ignorance.

me December 12, 2011 at 5:50 pm

you’re right, in Brazil, people think that everyone who has fair skin are white, but not all Brazilians who are “ignorant” in this point

Papa Legba December 13, 2011 at 1:48 am

Sorry brother, but I’m Brazilian and he’s a mulato to me! It’s quite obvious, his features are Mulato. And Brazilians have distorted fews? Are you serious? Look at the people Americans call ‘Black’ at least when someone who is not completely white is called white in some Latin American countries they’re at least predominately white, while in America you can be predominately white and still be considered black. So someone needs to judge his own countries misconceptions. These are social standards, they differ from country to country so your view of certain races may not be the view of those races in other countries. Your American view is no more right than a Brazilians view or a Russians view or an Arabs view!

Its me! December 17, 2011 at 1:25 am

Papa Legba Damn I agree I dont get how someone like Mariah Carey would b considered Black when she look more White. America force mixed people to choose Black even if they look white. The greatest country huh? Race should never b forced but I see it all the time in this country.
Mexican ritte here :)

ladyofstandards December 21, 2011 at 1:52 am

I agree though looks can be decieving. I know an aquaintance who looked mostly black but when the ancestry results came out, the tst said other wise. Bothe if her parents are black as well. Everyone is not pure anything technically, so it was not suprising. Im a darkin black American woman and people can be so ignorant. We were whatchin a reality show about snoop dog and someone thought that there daughter was adopted because she was the darkest one in the family. They think two light skin people cant have a dark baby. That is so not true. Both if my grand parents are very very ligthskin and my mother , some of her sisters and brothers, either came out dark, light skin, or inbetween. People should have a right to call themselves what ever they want to.

ladyofstandards December 21, 2011 at 2:12 am

You can have european looking features and be black, but Africans come in all kinds of facial features, colors etc, even black Africans……True but what you have in your dna does not always show on the outside. Sometimes family members can skip generations and take on genes from many years ago. I am a dark black American woman( chocolate complected) but both of my grandparent are very light skin. My grandmother on my moms side is tri racial and my grandmother on my dad side is black and naitive American( Ute tribe) and is brown complected. So I have aunts and uncles that very from fair to dark. I think this color variation is common in most black American families. /but who is really a pure race anyway? I think its silly for people to think that darkskin and light skin blacks are two different races. I dont agree with the one dropp rule. I thinks its hurtful to claim only black or only white if your both. For example if I had a daughter who was half white and only called herself white because thats how societety sees her, I would be hurt. To me that is denying that your parents are of two different races or the other half of yourself.

Cherno February 10, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Well said. This is what I would have said. In Europe (Sweden) they don`t have a stupid retarded, irrational, ridiculous rule like this one drop rule…and I am half Swedish and half Nigerian.

hotspice58 December 7, 2011 at 1:36 pm

Taylor Lautner is all native. Kris has a biracial father and a white mother.

me December 9, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Yes,Kris is quadroon

Dang Dang December 13, 2011 at 8:02 pm

Kris stated on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that his father’s grandmother was white Irish, making him 1/4 white. I think that Kris has a little bit more black dna percentage than a quadroon but he would be closer to a quadroon dna wise than an octoroon than I previously suspected.

me December 19, 2011 at 5:51 am

Yes,like Rashida Jones,Wentworth Miller and others

lala January 29, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Taylor lautner is part native american on his moms side of the family what are you talking about

cindy December 1, 2011 at 3:44 am

i new he had blk in him thts y kim k went for him

ricoh November 30, 2011 at 5:54 pm

This man looks like T.Laugtner the kid on the Vampire were wolves movies,the only differences is the kid Taylor has smaller eyes. Taylor has the same dna as Kris,they both are mulatoes ,or Qaudroons. Taylor might have a little native blood in him.
