(It’s funny how black people don’t want him to be part Mexican )

How do you get what all black people don’t want him to be,from one person commenting about both his parents being black?Also what so special about his nose?

Uh, but he is not half Mexican! I’ve seen his mother before. She is a light skin woman with past shoulder length hair. May she rest in peace. She may have a little Mexican blood in her ancestry. However, when I saw her she looked like a light skin black woman. Also, I believe Marques Houston has bleached himself throughout the years. He use to have a medium to dark brown complexion. Now he is very light.

I don’t know what the dude is

(when I saw her she looked like a light skin black woman.)

Looking at the picture of her,that’s what I would’ve said

(He use to have a medium to dark brown complexion. Now he is very light.)

Maybe he hasn’t been in the sun as much,who knows

A lot of people keep saying “His mom can’t be Mexican or fully Mexican, she looks Black!” You do know that there was and still is an african population in Mexico, so…

I remember seeing his mother before she died, she is at least half black, she was definitely mixed! But she isn’t 100% Mexican.

I remember a picture of him and his mother in a magazine before she passed away … and I know you can’t always tell by just looking… but she appeared to be black to me.
