  1. Why are people surprised? If we went back 400 years ago, the mulattos you’d all see would more than likely have African usually slave mothers.

    Many of the multi generation mulattos you’d meet in the new world maybe outside of Canada/America probably can trace their first black grandparent as having a African great (insert number) grandmother. .

  2. from which year the photo was taken ?

    she was born in 76 ?

    somethimes i think that mother nature is unfair, Most blacks look much younger than they are

    1. She is Black and English. She is NOT just black. Do you not understand that her father is white? That means she is NOT just African. Skin complexion is the cause of aging, not race dumbass. The darker you are the less the sun ages you…. some people really need to read a book and get educated. She is biracial. Like me, I’m triraical. Not just black.

  3. I’m black, scottishc, English and native American and my complexion is hers or a little lighter doing the winter month’s. My dad is Scottish, English and native and my mom is like all African American like Oprah’s complexion. People should embrace we mix people more instead of trying to box us or say we are just black. If our parents are not 100 percent pure black African then its impossible to be just black. Skin complexion alone does not make you a certain race. There are some very tan Europeans too. I think instead of trying to box we multiracial people we should be able to acknowledge who we are without fear of being called names because we simply choose to acknowledge our whole ancestry.

      1. in France, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany most of biracial people are the product of a black father (usually from a former colony) and a white mom. This trend is nearly absent in South Europe (Italy, Spain, Greece)

          1. go to jamaica,brazil,and other latin countries is the same most of biracial people are product of white male and black female.

    1. Most half black biracials have white mothers, it goes for many Countries in Europe and especially the United States where a disproportionate amount of half blacks have white mothers.
      In Europe it’s slightly more even.

        1. Really? In my experience at least, and i know a lot of biracial people, only one of them i know has a white farther,black mother. I guess it depends where you from.

    2. Maurogomes3193~ That is such bullshit. Most of these biracials have a White mom and a Black dad. BOTH celebrities and “normal” people. If you were to take a survey, you would find out that most majority has a Black dad and a White mom. Black women aren’t open to dating White men and White men aren’t open to dating Black women. I’ve seen only a few BW/WM couples, but everywhere I go I see WW/BM couples. White men seem to love Asian women though, and Asian women seem to love White men. That’s the only interracial couple I’ve seen that involves a White man.

        Quote( Black women aren’t open to dating White men and White men aren’t open to dating Black women)

        I can’t agree with you on that, I have four female cousins that are married to white men. One of my cousins divorce her white husband, and turn around a few years later and married another white man , while her ex married another black woman. Also have you visited the ethnic couples part of the site? there are bw/wm couples there . Oh wait I see that part of the site has been removed, to bad.

    3. I have to agree with most of the people here. Never in my life have I met someone with a black mother and a white father, it’s always the typical white mother and black father. Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, Obama, Paula Patton, Shemar Moore, Boris Kodjoe, Persia White, Lisa Bonet, Sade, Victoria Rowell, Sophie Okonedo, Barbara Becker, Rick Fox, Jasmine Guy, Ben Harper, Mariah Carey (her father is mixed though), Mya, Jason Kidd, Rashida Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Derek Jeter, Leona Lewish, Corbin Bleu, Jordin Sparks, Lewis Hamilton, Samantha Mumba, Craig David, Sherri Saum, Alanna Davis, etc all have white mothers and black fathers.

        1. i see more black mother and white fathers.pat barry,Andre Ward,Bob Marley,Slash,Eusebio(best mulatto soccer player of all time),Karyn Parsons,Ronda Rousey(mother is part black),Trisha Goddard,Anais Mali,Amber Rose, Tamera Mowry,Antonia Thomas,Rachel True,Zadie Smith,Tammy Townsend,Brooklyn Sudano,Anais Granofsky,Jenny Lumet,Gloria Reuben,Giancarlo Esposito,Maya Rudolph,Michael Michelle,Salli Richardson,Soledad O’Brian,Susan Fales-Hill,Taimak Guari, Tamia,Thandie Newton,Tracee Ellis Ross,Troy Beyer and many others are white fathers and black mothers.

          1. Do you have something against black men and white women being together? Why do you keep trying to prove a point? (Even though you’re wrong, and the majority of the world would agree that black women and white men are a rare couple). Most mulattoes have a white mother and a black father.

          2. The majority of half black children have white mothers, it’s a statistical fact. In Europe it’s slightly more even but white mother/black father combo still outnumber them even in Europe. In The united States most biracial children who are half black have black fathers.
            Of course black female/white male couples are on a steady increase though, but it isn’t as common.
            The most common interracial couple is still white men/Asian women though.

      1. the statistical fact is The majority of half black children have black mothers and white fathers especially in africa and latin europe in half/half.

    1. Some actually do. I get some mulattoes confused with Indians (Jessica Lucas and Camila Alves look Indian but they’re really black and white). Marsha could pass as an Indian woman. She has that look.

  4. wow her FATHER is the white one? that’s so strange considering most biracials have a white mother. not strange in a bad way though. i’m not just used to seeing white men father biracial children with black women. i thought white men were racist and didn’t date black women unless she was mixed. both of my parents are biracial but their mothers are white and their fathers are black.

    1. It isn’t that uncommon. I went to a mostly black high school and three of my black female classmates are married to white men. Also quite a few black female actresses and entertainers have black mothers and white fathers. Jurnee Smollett, Amber Stevens, Thandie Newton, Lela Arcieri, Salli Richardson, Mayah Rudolph, Cree Summers, Tamia, Mowry Twins, Noemie Lenoir, Traci Ellis Ross, Faith Evans, Laura London, Jennifer Freeman, Farrah Franklin etc. Are you suggesting that white men never sleep with black women? Trust me, they do. Most of the mixed people you see today are descendants from white men who raped/coerced black women/native american women into sex. So whatever. People don’t have to marry each other to have children.

        1. Um it’s pretty much like that in America too. Most of the mulattoes I know and follow on Instagram have a white mother and a black father. Both of my parents are mixed and my maternal grandmothers are both white and my paternal grandfathers are black.

          1. white men and black women is much more common now.and the most famous people mixed people are white men dad and black women mother.go to portugal,france,italy,and latin countries and you see is more common black women with white men.

      1. J.J. : If you were smart enough to read, you would have read that I said BLACK WOMEN and WHITE MEN. Marsha is half black and half white, not half white and half asian. I don’t know what the fuck YOU are on about. I was clearly talking about how I never see black women with white men. I never said I don’t see Asian women with white men… Dumbass.

        BTW, I have seen Eurasian people with Asian fathers, lol you must be a closeted person. There are many famous people with Asian fathers and white mothers. Apolo Ohno, Russell Wong, Devon Aoki, Mike Shinoda, etc… My high school friend had a Japanese father and a white mother….

        1. im never said a black men with white women but i see many black women with white men in countries like brazil,spain,italy,france,jamaica and many others.

          most common

          1.asian women/white men
          2.white men/black women
 men/white women

  5. I`m doubtful she has any African ancestry .She has no lips and is to skinny no curves:P So that means she does not have any African only African women have big lips and are curvy not slim.She is just English to me.

  6. She was so cute as Naomi. I was just upset that they had her die! At first I thought she was Indian (from India), then I found out that she’s just a beautiful mulatta.
