Meagan Good

by ethnic on January 27, 2008

"Think Like A Man Too" Hollywood Premiere - Arrivals

Birth Name: Meagan Monique Good

Place of Birth: Panorama City, Los Angeles, California, United States

Date of Birth: August 8, 1981

Ethnicity: African-Barbadian, African-American, Puerto Rican, Louisiana Creole, possibly Cherokee Native American and Jewish

Meagan Good is an American actress. She has starred in the films You Got Served, Stomp the Yard, and Saw V, among many others.

Meagan is the daughter of Tyra Wardlow-Doyle, who managed her career, and Leondis “Leon” Good, an LAPD officer. She has stated:

My mother’s mother is Jewish and African, so I guess that would be considered Creole. My mother’s father was Cherokee Indian and something else. My dad’s mother’s Puerto Rican and black, and his father was from Barbados.

It is not clear if Meagan’s Cherokee Native American or Jewish lineages have been verified/documented.

Meagan is a Christian.

Meagan is married to Hollywood producer and Seventh Day-Adventist minister DeVon Franklin.

Meagan’s maternal grandfather was Emmett Arnett Wardlow II (the son of Emmett Arnett Wardlow and Nellie Burnett/Bernett). Meagan’s grandfather Emmett was born in Mississippi, and is listed as “Negro” (black) on the 1930 U.S. census. His parents are also listed as “Negro” on the 1930 U.S. Census, and were born in Arkansas. Meagan’s great-grandfather Emmett was the son of Dan Wardlow and Marsull Brown.

Meagan’s maternal grandmother was Dolores Delrio Armstrong (the daughter of David L. “Dave” Armstrong and Vivian M. Haynes). Dolores was born in Arkansas, as was her father, whose own parents were from Alabama. Vivian’s mother’s maiden name was Duncan.

From where does this Vivian M. Haynes come? On all censuses from the sources, David Armstrongs wife is Josephine Ross.

I also don’t see the evidence for Louisiana Creole (all black people from Louisiana aren’t Creoles). That’s also likely not what she was referring to when saying she was Creole.

follers July 1, 2018 at 10:58 pm

Dolores’ death record lists her mother’s name as Vivian Haynes. Perhaps Dave Armstrong and his wife were still legally married when he conceived Dolores with Vivian.

bablah March 17, 2017 at 2:36 pm

”My dad’s mother’s Puerto Rican and black” can also be understood as her grandmother being Afro-Puertorican.
Also having a mixed race ancestor doen’t make you Louisiana Creole by default.

She looks like a black Megan Fox.

No, she looks like a mixed race meagan fox

We need to stop mixing all these basic BLack celebrities unecessarily. Use google and look at thier childhood pics when they were alot darker and more afro haired. They are just Blacks people.

cwm85 August 5, 2015 at 2:47 pm

It doesn’t matter what complexion they are. If they are mixed with other ethnic groups then they are mixed… You seem to have a hard time accepting that! Why are you so racist and offended by people who are mixed and try to make everyone just African?

JessicaDawn October 15, 2015 at 10:21 am

Oh, I guess if you’re name is Midori, you’re Japanese.
Then let’s just call you all Chinese, or just Asian. Not specify where you’re from, just a Chinese Asian girl.

Mdelacruz16 January 7, 2016 at 11:37 pm

are you Chinese? maybe, or maybe not I dont care, your name is a fuckin drink let me guess your last name is two, or hung or nugyen , i still dont care.

Megan goode is mixed because if she does a dna test it will not come back saying 100% black you fucking dumbass,

I am almost sure it will come back with several different things

midori29 August 4, 2015 at 11:23 am

MEAGAN GOODE is NOT mixed. She uses chemical peels, hair extensions and skin bleach.

midori29 August 4, 2015 at 11:22 am

Check put this little dark skinned pic of her before the skin bleach and hair extensions.

She is beautiful not taking that from her but she is not “mixed” .This post just proved that her grandparents were black. Every black american has some sort of mixture but Meagan would not be considered mixed.And the Cherokee gosh if i had a dime for every black person that claimed to be indian i would be rich. Do a damn DNA test.I did one and I am 15 per Native American.The slaves barely had any contact with Native Americans.So those family rumors were lies .That high cheekbone lightskinned great grandmother is probably of European decent due to slave rape..Wake up people..Black and white also

midori29 August 4, 2015 at 11:14 am

@Surreal thats insane, the average African American is nOT 29% white. Thats BS. Tyra Banks the green eyed light skinned supermodel did a dna test and she is only 14% white. And she is light with green eyes.

Surreal August 10, 2015 at 2:32 pm

You don’t know what the word average means, do you? It doesn’t mean EVERY African American person, but it does mean MOST or THE MAJORITY of African American people are close to 75% SSA, 24% European, and 1% Native American (with 30% of all African American males having a European paternal haplogroup). I can show you the DNA tests. Here: http://i.imgur.com/9PdM0Hv.png
You want more, I have tons of them!

And when I say African Americans I mean people descended from American slaves, not any Nigerians or Kenyans or Ghanaians who recently immigrated to the US, I’m talking about people whose ancestors have been here since the Transatlantic Slave trade. Those African Americans. None of the DNA companies have yet to get one that is 100% SSA. The closest people that come to it are people from the Gullah region of South Carolina (they are 90-98% SSA on average), mostly because they lived in relative isolation from European American people for centuries (they didn’t even get bridges until the 1950s). The African Americans (who aren’t recently mixed) with usually the highest European DNA, would be Louisiana Creoles (they did a lot of mixing with European Americans through Plaçages (where European men would seek out mulatto and quadroon women for common-law marriages) and plus you had the social class of the Free People of Color there).

And it’s not insane if you think about. The thing with African Americans is the admixture builds or lessens overtime because all African Americans are mixed in various degrees. Most African American people have enough European DNA to have an equivalent of a white grandfather or white great-grandfather, but African Americans are multi-generational mixed people. The admixture usually isn’t recent but is just something passed down throughout the generations (from slavery times) because African Americans that were mixed, mated with other African Americans that were mixed. There weren’t as many of them as there were European Americans in this country, especially since the United States got an influx of new European DNA straight from Europe during the late 1800s-early 1900s. European Americans had an opportunity to breed out any admixture they acquired from colonial times (especially given the one drop rule, to keep their bloodlines pure). But that wasn’t the case for African Americans. There wasn’t as many of them nor a huge influx of recent African immigrants in the late 1800s and it was seen as acceptable to marry someone who was mixed, even something people pushed for (some light skinned people wanted to only marry other light-skinned people, so not to have any children that were dark), and since all of them were mixed, any European DNA they had stayed with them. They didn’t have an opportunity to “breed it out” if you will like some European Americans (and I’ve seen some of their DNA tests. For a lot of the European Americans that are mixed from generations ago, they’re like 2-1% and under in non-white ancestry. For example of some European Americans: http://i.imgur.com/ecbvyXx.png

In genetics, you get about half of whatever your parents have (not always a perfect half, though, but close to it). So, for example, a man is between 62-63% SSA, he daughter would get 30.5% of their African DNA from him. If their mom didn’t have any African DNA, then that’s all the African DNA they would have had (like Rashida Jones. Her father, Quincy Jones has DNA results similar to this dad’s, but he married a Eastern European woman, and that’s how his daughter Rashida Jones only has 31% Sub-Saharan African DNA, despite having one white parent and one black parent). But let’s say their mom is also African American and is about 85% African, they got another 42.5% African DNA from her. Now that person is 72-73% Sub-Saharan African. And the same works for the European. Dad is 35-36% European. They get 18% of their European DNA from him. Mom is about 12-13% European, they get 6% of their European from her. They’re 24% European now. That’s how it works, basically. I don’t think some people understand that some people can have a lot of European DNA, without being recently mixed.

Some ethnic groups are just mixed, and African Americans are no different. They are still black, as I feel you can be both black and biracial, at least, in the United States.

Surreal August 10, 2015 at 2:42 pm

*”Average” is also used to mean the “median” or the “standard.” So in this context, it means the typical African American.

midori29 August 4, 2015 at 11:17 am

@Mprwnita 2g, I totally agree with you Meghan Goode is not mixed.

LMFAO it’s pathetic when people are jealous of pretty mixed chicks, they want to say they’re just black to make themselves feel better. Well guess what BITCH, she is MIXED & there’s NOTHING you can do about it! Get a f*cking life, loser!

cwm85 July 16, 2015 at 3:02 pm

People who only identify as black always have a problem when someone is mixed with other ethnic groups. That’s races. American is a multicultural society and many of us are mix with other races. Get over it. She looks mix with other than African. Duh

@cmwm85, you need to go back and read the other posts. This woman is NOT mixed. She uses skin bleach, hair extensions, and chemical peels to get lighter. Are people ignoring the fact that most black celebrities use fake hair and skin bleach.???????

midori29 August 4, 2015 at 11:18 am

No she does not. Again look at younger pics of her. Its lighting and skin bleach, plus hair extensions.

California July 11, 2015 at 10:19 pm

Not trying to sound rude or throw shade, but why do Black people always hate on mixed people? They try say that they’re just Black even though they’re mixed with something else. Just because someone looks black doesn’t mean they are. Hell I know several mixed people who look mostly black but I don’t consider them black. I have a friend whose mom is Korean and her dad is Black, at a first glance you’d think she was just some pretty Black chick but she’s half Asian. Anyway just please shut the hell up and stop trying to erase someone’s mixed heritage.

When did she become a Creole? Have ancestors born in Louisiana, doesn’t make you a Creole

She is a beautiful multiracial woman. I see all of her ethnicities in her.

Zatm81 July 16, 2015 at 12:32 pm

She’s a beautiful multiracial woman, a beautiful Black woman, and a beautiful woman period…don’t forget that.

midori29 August 4, 2015 at 11:19 am

She looks just black to me. Im unsure what people are seeing. Google childhood pics of her.

jokin March 2, 2015 at 12:24 pm

Puerto rican?? what race is that?? she could be of black, White, mulatto or mixed puertorican ancestry…You should state real background, Puerto rico is just like the US, a melting pot…..

midori29 December 16, 2014 at 2:23 pm

I am 109 percent sure, she had her skin bleached or brightened like most all of the black actresses in Hollyweird. The only black one who does not bleach her skin and actually tans is Vanessa Williams. I have seen her in person and she is super light skinned near pink, so she really gets tans.

angrygirl19 December 6, 2014 at 4:38 am

Lol, she tried to say Jewish and black were considered creole.

midori29 November 26, 2014 at 4:29 pm

Honestly im not sure I believe all of this. Its popular these days to be less than black so im wondering if some of her non black ethnicities are made up or 300 years ago. She looks about 85 percent black if I didnt know.

WTF November 28, 2014 at 3:20 pm

Why tf is it so hard to believe she’s mixed? Because she has darker skin? Ignorant bitch. I can tell she’s mixed, ofc she looks predominately black but you can tell she has other things in her. I noticed that you have posted other stupid shit on other mixed black actresses. You said Kat Graham looks “fully black” which is a lie. You’re just jealous of mixed girls, and you’re probably an ugly jealous black girl. The reason I say this is because I was bullied by jealous, salty black girls when I was in middle school/high school. Most black women are jealous of mixed women.

midori29 December 4, 2014 at 10:07 am

@WTF I think your comments are misdirected. I am a black South American mixed with two types of Indian, native and east plus potuguese. Yes there are plenty of dark skinned mixed peoples. Ive sern every combination of admixture there is and this woman just does not look it. Its popular to be mixed these days and people are capitalizing on that. I dont know if she is lying for sure but until I see a dna test I dont believe it, sorry.

midori29 December 4, 2014 at 10:09 am

@WTF she also can be 85 percent black and 15 percent every other race, its possible. But to me see looks at least 85 percent black.

midori29 December 4, 2014 at 10:13 am

@WTF my mothers friend has a daughter about 4 shades darker than Meagan Goode and very kinky hair. Her grandfather is white but you can see it in her face, even though she is the color of Wesley Snipes. Her face still shows her mixture. I dont see a heavy admixture in Meagan Goodes face, sorry.

Dogg December 5, 2014 at 9:33 am

She does NOT look 85% black, more like 50%.

angrygirl19 December 6, 2014 at 4:35 am

No. She doesn’t.

J.J. December 6, 2014 at 4:48 am

i’d say she looks predominately black, a little bit more than 50% but still mixed race none the less

midori29 December 6, 2014 at 1:49 pm

@Dogg, I am wondering where you live?? Where I live most of the regular black women look like Meagan Goode, features and all. Im wondering where you all live? Even Vanessa Williams, who has pale skin, grey blue eyes and real blonde hair is at least 60% black. his woman looks like the average black woman.

midori29 December 10, 2014 at 1:34 pm

@JJ in Hollywood anyone can look less ethnic and mixed. The media has made many believe falsely that all the pretty black girls are “super mixed”.When you consider most of the black female stars use skin bleach and fake European hair weaves and dye. Anyhow when Meagan Goode was younger she looked different.

I see Meagan said her mother’s mother is Jewish. Well, her mother’s mother is Dolores Armstrong, who is a black woman from Arkansas. Does she mean Dolores converted to Judaism? Or what? I know there are black Jews, but Dolores doesn’t seem to have been born one.

follers June 3, 2014 at 8:38 am

Meagan seemed to say that her maternal grandmother had both Jewish and Black ancestry, and that that makes her Creole.

But I don’t think Meagan has Jewish or Cherokee ancestry.

ashash June 3, 2014 at 2:21 am

I don’t think she has any Cherokee or Jewish ancestry judging from what I am reading above. If she does, it would have to be extremely distant.

Amby January 21, 2014 at 10:36 pm

Mixed race people were not documented correctly at all. You had white people documented as Mullatto if a census taker didn’t feel they were white enough. It is impossible to try to count the number of multiracial people in the 1790 U.S. Census because of the racial categories used: white, slave, and “other.” The latter was used for “Free Coloreds,” or persons who were free but did not look white. Furthermore, Native Americans were intentionally excluded from the U.S. Census until 1890 (Jobe, 2004). Other types of government surveys were used to count them since tribes were usually accorded the status of quasi-sovereign nations. Census takers used their discretion to determine who fit in the category of “Free Colored,” so it is hard to identify the dividing lines between black, white, and “other.” A “Free Colored” could be a black person who was not a slave, a free person of mixed black and white ancestry, or a free person of another ethnic or racial origin whom the census taker did not feel was white. Sometimes these “others” included individuals of Portuguese, Turkish, or “Black Dutch” heritage. (Both Portuguese and Turkish people are considered “white” by modern U.S. Census standards.)

Laura January 16, 2014 at 12:05 am

I’m so sick of the constant Ignorance in African Americans, and the JEALOUSY they have for other African Americans who are of a mixed race. Just suck it up, shut the F ck up and deal with it. Just because someone doesn’t have your opinion of what a racially mixed person should look like, doesnt mean they should DENY what they are, just for you. Stop being so hateful. my goodness lmao

fuzzybear44 January 16, 2014 at 5:20 am

Brought up to see things a certain way ok guilty ,however (JEALOUSY)?I never heard an African American around me express that.Maybe in other places around you,but never heard the women around me do it.

Laura January 16, 2014 at 8:21 pm

Dissagree all you want, but you know damn well that if there was someone who was…I don’t know lets say Japanese, but they just so happen to have a black grandmother, you know the world would consider them to be mixed, no one would allow them to completely negate that factor of someone being black in his/her family. So why should it be any different with someone who is black?

fuzzybear44 January 17, 2014 at 5:01 am

I can’t say what the world would call that person.However they probably would call them Japanese,if they don’t see the black contribution.Also that person might also call them self Japanese if they can get away with it,since from my understanding they have a hard time of it.Also your doing it ,since you keep referring to them as mixed black or a black person that’ mixed.Which means you’re seeing the black part first

Now my problem with your earlier comment,was the word (JEALOUSY).What make you think AA’s are full of (JEALOUSY)? Of what would they be full of (JEALOUSY) about?

ashash January 17, 2014 at 5:22 am

I would call her black. There is no proof her mother is Jewish or Native American, which is quite strange if it is supposed to be her grandmother and grandfather. Jewish ancestry would particularly be easy to recognize, especially if it as recent as she claims it is.

Kell Bell January 21, 2014 at 8:36 pm

Everybody is jealous at some point in their lives. Jealous over what they feel a biracial woman has over them. Skin tone, hair texture, facial features ect. Its harsh to say but it is what it is. White women are jealous of Latin women, or any exotic woman for that matter, and for the same exact reasons. Every woman wants what they don’t and cant have.Skinny women with no booty hate shapely women, they love to call them fat.

Laura January 21, 2014 at 9:06 pm

First of all I never said ALL of u are full of jealously but ur obviously in denial. The fact that my comment bothered you so much says alot about you. Some ppl are biracial and some are not, some people have an exotic mix which makes them beautiful. Now does that mean someone that looks like your typical Baqweeesha from the projects isnt beautiful? Hell no. But they are filled with hate and they know they are. Just bring up mixed chicks and u will see. Lol

Now on the real…sistas yall know exactly whats up when a pretty little brown skin chic with natural long hair walks into a room filled of us who look more like we could star in roots. Which is why we rush our asses to the nearest Beauty supply store to by three quarters of a lb of Indian Remy hair.

Mixed people are different its true regardless of who dont like it. And fuzzy u know u not being real about the topic. Why do u think almost every black woman is walking down the street with 26″ of wet n wavy weaves?? Why do we kill our natural growth with hair relaxers? Most mixed chicks dont have to do none of that and thats the real reason why there is some haterizm goin on.

Laura January 15, 2014 at 11:57 pm

Cynical mulatto, you contradict yourself so much in that long ass statement. You’re calling someone else ignorant for saying she doesn’t have his opinion of what “black features” are when you CLEARLY stated that you HIGHLY doubt the Native American in her. Geeeee I wonder why you would make that statement….Could it be because she doesn’t have what YOUR opinion of typical “Cherokee” facial features are??

Cynical Mulatto December 20, 2013 at 6:01 am

Poor girl wanting so desperately to appear mixed and exotic.
Someone please informer the preacher’s wife that creole is NOT Jewish and African American. And I highly doubt the Cherokee part.

Clarisse Foxx December 20, 2013 at 4:54 pm

Omg same thing i said

bryan December 20, 2013 at 9:19 pm

well she may not understand what creole is but that doesn’t mean she isn’t jewish and the other things she said, if you’ve seen her parents they actually look like what is listed, and she’s not desperate to appear exotic and mixed…she IS exotic and mixed, never thought for one sec that she was 100 African, doesn’t look it at all, Viola davis, danai gurira, those are some women who are not mixed

Cynical Mulatto January 8, 2014 at 6:37 am

Bryan, you are so ignorant. No one, not even africans, are 100% african. Everyone is mixed with something, including Viola Davis. So just because she has strong “black features” doesn’t mean she doesn’t have some “other” thrown in there. Second, just because she has very few “stereotypical mixed features” doesn’t mean she is mixed. My sister and I are mixed directly, but she looks blacker than me since her eyes are brown and skin tanner. Doesn’t mean she’s not mixed! You cannot prove an ancestry based on looks. So your just because she doesn’t look like your close-minded view of black people doesn’t mean she’s black. Third, I didn’t say she wasn’t Jewish. I just said I highly doubt she’s creole since she doesn’t even know what it is. And looking at her ancestry, it says “NEGRO” basically all over the place except for Josephine, which is from the 1920s, which means that ‘otherness’ hasn’t been around for 6+ decades, meaning that it has faded into the 10-20%, rather than the overload of ‘other exoticness’ she’s claiming. So basically, she’s mixed with n*gga, n*gga, and a dash of n*gga. Not a thing “exotic” about that. Just pitiful….trying to claim 2% ancestry as 30%. And there is no such thing as a Jewish + African = Creole. I’m just like, get outta here with that. Creole is Europe + Black, honey!

All this to say, there is factual evidence and pure logic to rule that her “exotic” and “mixed” claims are hardly applicable, going by past and modern definitions of the two. So let’s stick with “African American and perhaps even the very distant other”, and don’t deny your race. There’s nothing wrong with being plain black. Quit tryna be special!

Cynical Mulatto January 8, 2014 at 6:42 am

“So your just because she doesn’t look like your close-minded view of black people doesn’t mean she’s black”

I meant just because she doesn’t look like your so-called average Black person doesn’t mean she is mixed.

And I say the above in the nicest way possible. Just had to drop some education :)

sashafierce564 July 13, 2012 at 11:58 pm

It doesnt matter what race she is she a beautiful African American women in thee end. A black beauty queen. :)))).

julieanna July 2, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Why do people make it such a point to say “oh she is mainly this or that”. She is all of those races she named. It doesn’t matter that she looks like a black woman at first glance. Yes she is black but she is also white and Latin. SMH…people get so crazy about the shit.

Zatm81 July 16, 2015 at 12:40 pm

My only question is why people like you only emphasize mixture in the African American’s who look more exotic yet you could care less about an African American like Chris Rock, who’s 10% White, just because he looks typically Black.

Multiethnicchick April 28, 2012 at 6:43 am

You guys are ridiculous. Do you even know what someone of full on black west african decent looks like(whick is what black is)? She’s obviously mixed. Her father DOES look mixed. He looks like he could pass for a brown latino man. She probably 50% of African descent and is mixed with white, native american on the other half. Why is that so hard to believe.

GeorgeJeanPierre May 15, 2012 at 2:20 pm

people who are 50/50 generally dont need weaves like this chick. She clearly more black than anything.

Zatm81 July 16, 2015 at 12:42 pm

Why is it so hard to believe that she is an African Amerrican with admixture. She’s not biracial, stop claiming my people you self hating mutt.

George March 28, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Jewish and black isn’t creole. At the end the day she’s mainly African with distant European and Amerindian ethnicity like most blacksThere u go.

ha March 29, 2012 at 8:40 pm

George, if schools actually required African Americans studies rather than years of white history with no diversity, maybe people (mostly white) would know this. lmfao

GeorgeJeanPierre May 15, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Agreed but she isnt creole.

What? February 17, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Please google pictures of her dad. That man is 100% African American. Nothing mixed about him. Puerto Rican is not a race.

Her mom looks mixed, her dad is str8 black. Megan is BLACK!

That Black Guy January 4, 2012 at 1:01 am

God, she’s so fine!

Renee January 3, 2012 at 7:55 pm

The reporter asked her why does she look so exotic. She explained why. She is what she is.

justop January 10, 2012 at 4:53 pm

White people always ask that of attractive black people. most blacks in America are mixed. none of us are full black African

after all that is said and done she is a black woman

tinka123 December 20, 2011 at 6:31 pm

MIXED LOL THIS CHIC NEED TO QUIT AT THE END OF THE DAY SHE IS BLACK

lilly January 14, 2012 at 4:21 pm

She never sd she wasn’t black..inform urself black is a race not ethnic group…Pick up a book and read..

Wrong! November 26, 2011 at 11:08 pm

She is a pretty BLACK woman. Her dad is black people. Yes, google pics of him and her mom is actaully mixed. BUT she doesn’t look mixed at all. Very pretty black girl and she should be proud!

G. Robins December 8, 2011 at 11:34 pm

Here we go again! It amazes me when some folks try to determine when a quote un quote black is mixed! You want to know how when you see a black person is mixed???? The diversity in looks actually determines her background. Yes, she looks as different as African-Americans living in America would look! Mixed!!!!!!! If you noticed no one African-American looks the same that’s because they are mixed!!!!

LamarteStaton October 24, 2011 at 7:09 pm

How is she mixed with all this stuff but yet your still calling her black,no one skin is black its all shades of brown, or taned,or a peachey color. At the end of the day Megan Good is a beatiful mixed woman.

nafula December 12, 2011 at 5:26 pm

there is no race called mixed..either ur black or white.which doesn’t matter-

Zatm81 July 16, 2015 at 12:44 pm

She’s an African American with admixture, you’re definition of mixed makes pretty much all Back Americans mixed.

Lesciba October 22, 2011 at 4:18 pm

Yes we understand the cocktail of races involved Megan… but the question is simple… WHAT R U as a race… if some one was to walk into a room to identify and classify races (in a research maybe) – and white people stood up, chinese people stood up, etc – which race would u stand up with??? What is ur race???

eh October 23, 2011 at 12:12 am

why can’t she say more than one? a lot of people are more than one race. and what the hell is it to you?

G. Robins December 8, 2011 at 11:49 pm

I am so glad you said in a research because an educated person just like myself would classify African-Americans as bi-racial! Now I want to make sure you are able to identify a truth and a lie! A truth would be that African-Americans are not 100 percent African. A lie would be yes well An African-Americans great grandmother is British and great grandfather is from Ghana but oh well what the hell they are still one hundred percent African! So my point is that based on American History truth has never been option! Tell a lie even though the truth is evident! If you noticed no one African-American person looks the same (light, dark, red, brown, brown,hazel, green eyes, blue eyes) See many have been trained to think according to American history standards that they set the tone as to what determines ones race! Very dangerous to do!

liyah July 14, 2011 at 12:55 pm

when i look at her all i see is black, she might have those other mix of races but they probably are very far ancestry.

Amber Berg July 14, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Delnegro August 4, 2011 at 3:00 am

@amber berg stfu all u do talk shyt u asshole

betsy August 3, 2011 at 11:27 pm

well, i don’t see her as an african black woman, i see her as a beautiful mixed woman.

Zatm81 July 16, 2015 at 12:48 pm

Of course you can’t see her as an African because she’s not. She’s an African American with admixture but, it’s funny that if a woman with the same admixture as Meagan looked like Viola Davis, you’d probably not be saying this.

Worldgrl November 11, 2011 at 1:09 pm

she looks like one of those BRATZ dollz :D and ofcourse she is not only black cause or her complexian she has a certain undertone to it and her nose is def. not black nor is her face shape (or eye shape) ,..it looks to me like you should know more about people and culture … as wel as “amber””

Jae February 14, 2012 at 8:41 am

Black ppl are not all one fucking color. Melanin determines skin complexion.

nafula December 12, 2011 at 5:28 pm

she looks black to me too.

What? February 17, 2012 at 8:24 pm

I agree. So many black people are in denial. It is pathetic.

WandaMonroe June 19, 2011 at 3:25 am

@proveit your are funny and correct. People are ignorant. I really don’t give a damn about what race so and so is. It don’t matter we are all people. Now who ever is getting upset with Megan cuz she shared her ethnicity with us is even more ignorant. How is it important? U can make her, or be mad. That’s her… if she hurt your feeling because she’s not claiming she’s straight from the motherland, that sounds like a personal problem. Most of the african americans that live in America or Puerto Rico are mixed. All of the blacks in puerto rico are of a hispanic decent lol I should know, my family is from there. I mean how can’t we be? Huh? Our ansestors been in america, mexico, europe, puerto rico and where ever else in the world…. since God knows how long. If someone choses not to claim their black ancestory that’s on them… really I dun give a damn and if I did and argued about it, that would me more ignorant than them. I hope this teaches y’all somethin.

Kahrai May 21, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Here’s the thing….NO one is saying she should not be proud of their ancestry….in fact NO ONE IS PURE RACE…we ALL have mixed ancestry…but as of today…she’s black…NOW blacks like to say ‘i’m mixed w/ this & that”…..as if their beauty is b/c of a “non-black” ancestor……While Whites NEVER “brag” about their mixed ancestry……..News flash…Back is Exotic without mixture…Visit Somalia, Jamaica, TRINIDAD etc…u’ll see black beauty…and if u want to see Unmixed diversity…visit Ethiopia!…my Grandmother is White, My grandfather?–Carib Indian….but I look the way i do…B/c the majority of me is AFRICAN……watch out! lol

Amia T. August 20, 2011 at 5:57 pm

@Kahrai, Somalis are PURE race. They are a homogenous people meaning the majority marry ONLY Somalis. Ethopians are not, it is a country consisting of over 100 tribes which are mixed and marry outside of that country. Just thought to clear that up, lol. And Trinidad women are sooooooooooooo pretty (:

Wrong! November 26, 2011 at 11:09 pm

@Jahrai, I agree. BUT Megan’s mom doesn’t look black though. Her dad looks African and Afican blood is very strong! Yes, she looks blk but she is actually somewhat “mixed!”

Zatm81 July 16, 2015 at 12:51 pm

Her mom looks African American with admixture. You’re either mixed or not. Mixed would be Black father and White mother not, Black father and Black mother with admixture.

liyah May 8, 2011 at 9:29 am

People don’t understand that being Puerto Rican or from any hispanic places is a nationality not a race there are white,black,asian and brown Puerto Ricans. I have this one women in my class and she’s from Brazil, her skin is the same skin tone as mine, her hair is as coarse as mine but she has a relaxer and her features are like mine but when she’s described as black people say she’s not black she’s Brazilian. She’s Brazilian but she’s black, she’s a black Brazilian.What i don’t understand is when people describe a black person and there is a person with all that discription who is clearly black but born in a hispanic area and that all changes. Why are they no longer black anymore? they just are born in another area it doesn’t change anything. It’s like a white or black person born and raised in china, they are chinese because they are from china but they are still a white person and a black person. It’s like me saying i’m not black i’m Canadian like Canadian is a race.

411 May 8, 2011 at 4:31 pm

@liyah

What you said was 100% correct,but don’t drive yourself crazy trying to understand it.From what I can tell,black is a bad thing to be in those places,you even have people from here doing the same thing,they hate being called black

Gemini May 25, 2011 at 10:02 pm

To liyah

The reason why most people, even American blacks, reject black is because the term black is associated with so much negativity, even by black people. Black, in the USA, is nothing more than an Americanized form of identification involving connotations with the skin color of people of African descent. To some other nations it is not as offensive. People in that region reject the term because in most situations their race isn’t very important and they identify with nationality. They’re not rejecting their African ancestry, they’re rejecting being called a term that uses their skin color as a means of identification. I do not see why it makes people so uncomfortable to the point where they must reject that person’s Caribbean/foreign identity and force them to succumb to the racist ways of this nation.
I hate it most when ignorant people cite racism as the reason why that person is black. How is that going to help the cause? That’s the reason why they reject the term in the first place.

WTF May 26, 2011 at 4:58 am

@Gemini

Gotta disagree with some of this.People reject being called black,because they’ve been taught to do so.Your sugar coating what’s going on,for generations now people have been taught to see black as ugly plain and simple.The lighter or whiter you are the better,that’s the truth.That’s why they have come up with some many different names to keep from being called black(dirty Indian,wheat,etc).Why a certain kind of hair is preferred,or the shape of the nose.I saw a story the other day,about a club in the D.R.The story stated that the owner would not allow any black person in the club:
http://www.dominicantoday.com/dr/local/2010/7/8/36255/No-blacks-no-gays-Dominican-Republic-bar-sticks-by-its-ways
Now I’m confused here,I saw some of the pictures of the people who were allowed into the club.Now I have 20/20 vision,and to me they looked like black people(excuse me,black Latinos).Now they say we want to be seen by their culture first,but that’s only because so many of them would be seen as black anywhere else.Now since the 1400’s to now black has been seen as bad,that’s honest truth

Gemini May 26, 2011 at 12:16 pm

To WTF

No there’s no sugar coating it but that is the reason some actually do. They just don’t identify as that or it was non existent. Ive met people like that personally. I was never taught to reject the term black yet I personally reject it in most situations because my skin is not black it’s brown and my ancestors don’t come from Blackland they are from Africa. Just as I don’t believe white people to be white, they are more pinkish. Their ancestors don’t come from Whiteland they are from Europe.
Black has become synonymous with negativity as I said but not all people reject it for the same reason. As I’ve learned some people are actually taught that they are a completely different ethnicity.

WTF May 27, 2011 at 4:26 am

@Gem

Well I do understand what your saying,but the funny thing is no ones skin is actually black or white;were all brown.Now you reject the name black,but you accept the name Africa,which was not the original name of the place;The name Africa also came from the Euro’s.Also while it was never called Blackland,it was funny enough called Negroland:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/82/Negroland_and_Guinea_with_the_European_Settlements%2C_1736.jpg/800px-Negroland_and_Guinea_with_the_European_Settlements%2C_1736.jpg
This is of course after they stop calling black people Moors,and change to Negro.However most of the name Euro’s and others gave for Africans,like (Bilad Al Sudan,Sudan,Aethiopia,Ethiopia etc)meant land of the black,or burnt face.Sorry got off on something else.Anyhow I’m all for them saying they are a different group,because they have gone through different things.They have different traditions,language etc,that’s all well and good.But they as others have stated,will look you in the face,and say you are a black person.However when they are as dark as the Ace of spades,will tell you that they’re not;because they are Latino.Now in what cosmic universe does that make any sense?I mean you can put a suit on a duck,but it will still be a duck

neiltennant July 16, 2015 at 1:57 pm

ridiculous ridicoulous

reminds me of the same ignorant people here who claim that it is normal that most italians are blonde and blue eyed and that most armenians do look like DITA VON TEESE and that is normal, that some can find tons of light eyed africans in africa without any euro blood

why do you want to fight normality and the most common things ?

99 percent of puerto ricans are dark and they have dark eyes, dark skin and dark hair

there are of course also few puerto ricans like pit bull with blue eyes but they are not the average puerto ricans

Melanie Lombardi February 8, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Drew Sidora & Meagan Good are two completely different women. Drew was on The Game before BET took over the show, Meagan was in the first episode of the show this season as you might know her character had an affair with Malik.

It is I January 21, 2011 at 6:55 pm

I dont see why people feel as though she has to prove herself. If she is more than black what the hell is she supposed to do? Disrespect her ancestors who aren’t by saying “I’m just black cuz that’s what the world wants me to be and that’s what they think I look like.”

And a question why the hell is it that when a black person or a person who looks black claims they are anything other than black, they have to prove themselves? Why the hell can’t we just be mixed? Why do people focus so much on our skin color?

I am a proud mixed race person regardless of my skin color

please, i think she’s full of shit. notice how she babbled on about all her other mixes, and barely said black. typical BLACK american. they just want to be and feel exotic. XDD

and since when did jewish and african = creole and puerto rican a race?

fuzzybear January 19, 2011 at 5:14 am

Your words(typical BLACK American. they just want to be and feel exotic)Now really,how many have you met?Pretty much every black person I’ve met,no matter their skin or hair ,just says they’re black,they don’t try to be anything else.Now Meagan might be a little different

brianna April 24, 2011 at 5:55 pm

I meant typical black american from MY experiences. I cannot tell you how many times black americans I know try to cling on to every race & ethnicity (which 90% of the time they don’t even have), except their own. It’s typical where I’m from. You can’t discredit what I said if I’m speaking from MY experience, which differs from yours. Same w/ you Rebellious.

First off I would have respected your comment if you didn’t go on your little rant about typical black american, who the heck cares about being exotic no one especiall not me,most people in fucking america are mixed with someting no one is a 100% percent anything not even you believe it or not my family is mixed with different things and guess what I still consider my self black because because I’m am, I don’t go on a rant telling people what other ethnicities my family is because no one cares unless they are ignorant.

“They have different traditions,language etc,that’s all well and good.But they as others have stated,will look you in the face,and say you are a black person.However when they are as dark as the Ace of spades,will tell you that they’re not;because they are Latino.”
“I mean you can put a suit on a duck,but it will still be a duck”
“Now in what cosmic universe does that make any sense?”

You answered your own question: “They have different traditions,language etc,” In this culture black means one thing but in theirs it means another. What makes sense to you may not make sense to them and vice versa.
Actually to be honest its quite puzzling to me as well. For some its actually that they simply don’t want to be associated with American Black people…. There are numerous reasons. I do call myself black, don’t get me wrong, but I do not call myself black all the time because it simplifies my complex heritage and ancestry. It is not at all offensive to me. If someone asks my ethnic background I do not say “I’m black” I tell them “I’m and American of African and European descent” or “African American”, what they choose to call me(as long as its not offensive) is not my problem. Identification is up to the individual and no one else.

The name Africa came from an ancient Egyptian king named Kh-afre, it was simply reversed. The Negroland, Ethiopia etc were all given by Europeans. I am not exactly a worldly person myself but I have yet to hear Africans refer to themselves as black nor Europeans refer to themselves as white yet I’ve heard them refer to each other in those ways. It’s quite ironic.

BTW I guarantee if you walk up to a native African and call them black they will correct you as well, I’ve tried it myself. Black has been given its negative connotations by the English language and not just that, the view of the concept of black. Anything evil is associated with black in almost any culture. To be called that in some cultures is an insult to that culture or an insult itself. It’s very deep and complex. It’s not always as simple as “they think its ugly.”

WTF May 28, 2011 at 4:54 am

@Gem

Well in the first part of your comment,I wasn’t really asking a question.I fully understood about the difference in cultural heritage.What I was asking ,was how they can look at us and say we are black,but they can be the same color and say they’re not;that’s the only question I had.Now it’s fine not wanting to be associated with American Black people,I’m not trying to force that.Now for the record,I do go around just calling myself black all the time either.However I don’t see how one word (simplifies your complex heritage and ancestry).Black means alot of things,(culture)being one of them.I also call myself AA,because like most Black people I’m also of mixed heritage;however I just don’t feel the word(black) confines me.
Now I don’t know about it being named after Kh-afre,but hey who knows.I heard A number of names for the place.However,I heard plenty of Africans refer to themselves as black.Back during the early 1900’s,black was used very often.Back then They took pride in it:black was for “the color of the noble and distinguished race to which we belong,but I understand people now go by their tribal groups or nation.I have plenty of friends from West and East Africa,who have no problem being called black.They are forever saying to me,(We as black men),And I’m nowhere near their color;lol.Oh the ugly thing,I got that from my African friends.Also from reading and talking to people who come from the Islands
