I think he’s a throwback gene: his bio parents both look “black” as in 3/4 or more SSA 1/4 or less Euro. But he came out looking mixed. He straight up looks like a multiracial Caribbean.

He probably got more of the euro genes in his appearance. If he wants to call himself black fine though because as far as we know both his parents were predominately black Americans.

He looks South Asian and African.

JaiJai March 3, 2016 at 6:46 pm

He’s Black. Just like Nick Cannon, Chris Brown, Marlon Wayans etc. His minimal Caucasian ancestry just popped up due to genetic variation.

This is a similar case with Nicole Ari Parker.

Al B. Sure’s mother:


Poor woman… =( She has cancer. Bless her heart. This is strange Kim Porter’s mom just passed from the same illness. #notfair

nah be white

slowdive December 29, 2015 at 1:36 am

This guy looks quite mixed.

BigMama February 14, 2016 at 3:55 pm

Yes, agree with you.

midori29 April 6, 2017 at 11:43 am

He only appears that way due to past genes. But BOTH of his parents are Black Americans.

Do we only have to use only prphotos because they hardly have any photos for him and they are old and ugly.

Please change the profile picture to this -http://cache2.asset-cache.net/gc/474373128-actor-quincy-brown-attends-the-dope-gettyimages.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=GkZZ8bf5zL1ZiijUmxa7QZyfcu96Q8UJ3aqO8anDdeIRTRmpCFjMzfhI2kBOABNYQO%2FopdDTl15vkjKvwJawMA%3D%3D

oops missed your message. only Prphotos and Bigstock.com at the moment.

cwm85 November 11, 2015 at 11:40 am

Fuzzybear clearly you are very defensive or have been to the fact most people think this guy is mixed like black and white… I know a lot about AA culture and the many sshades of brown. I have met many people whether at work, school, strangers and friends who are very light but identify as African-American or black. It doesn’t changed the fact they will to most people be perceived as mixed. Quincy looks mixed and my opinion won’t change about how he looks. His complexion, hair type, phenotype is more typical for mixed race folks. In fact many Samoans have a certain look he has… look at Dwayne Johnson who is Part Samoan and afro Canadian and Irish… they have similar features. So quincy to me and others on this site believes he looks more than just African-American. That’s all I said.

cwm85 November 11, 2015 at 4:39 am

@fuzzybear 27 kids by 27 women? Seriously?

fuzzybear44 November 11, 2015 at 11:12 am

Yes Seriously

There is no way he’s just black. He looks mixed as hell!!!

ANYWAY, he is a handsome young man, unlike his man-whore of a father.

xoxo November 4, 2015 at 1:45 am

OOPS let me edit myself and take back what I wrote about his “father”. I thought he was Sean’s biological son!!!!!

JaiJai March 3, 2016 at 6:47 pm

Most AA’s and Black people in general are mixed to an extent. There’s no such thing as “just black”.

midori29 April 6, 2017 at 11:45 am

Why are people so stupid to the fact that BLACK being Black has a million different looks. Africans, black Carribeans and Black Americans have a million different skintones, hiar textures, and facial features. Most mixed with black people still look black thats why you are confusing things. Plus blacks during slavery 200 yrs ago were raped by whites.

Kerrywhite November 3, 2015 at 5:56 pm

King of African-Americans…

His father is a light-skinned Black man’
His mother is a dark/medium skinned Black woman.

andrew November 3, 2015 at 3:14 pm
Kerrywhite November 3, 2015 at 6:08 pm

Wait…what is he saying in this?

andrew November 3, 2015 at 3:13 pm

I know “African-American” is an umbrella term but…

fuzzybear44 November 3, 2015 at 10:24 pm

but what?

andrew November 4, 2015 at 5:15 am

he looks like a Mediterranean-Black mix, he can pass as Dominican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Cape Verdean, and North African.

fuzzybear44 November 9, 2015 at 9:07 pm


I understand that the Dominicans around you are fat, happy, and brown. However ever black person I know, could fit in every last one of those places you listed. Each group goes from white to black

andrew November 10, 2015 at 5:11 am

yes, most Dominicans I know are tri-racials mulattoes, brown-skinned and women use to be “curvy” (..). I dont know if they feel happy being far from home, though,

andrew November 10, 2015 at 5:14 am

however if you will shut down your silly Afrocentrism for a while you could admit this guy is not your average “African-American”.

fuzzybear44 November 10, 2015 at 11:47 am


Now if you would take off your silly Eurocentric goggles for a minute, and open up your (mister magoo) eyes and realize that you said it yourself. African American is a umbrella term and a cultural name for a group of people who come from a multigenerational mix. We are about 42 million something strong, with multiple ancestries running through our bloodlines. We have multiple shades of skin in our families. We have different percentages of varies ancestries, we are not all the same( cousin would be different from cousin, but still family). I have been around black people my entire life, and have yet to see all 42 million, and I know you haven’t. Black do gather, and in certain area some groups maybe dark. While in other areas like mine, it’s more like a rainbow of color with all of them saying that they are BLACK. Quincy looks and coloration are very common to me, in other words average

cwm85 November 10, 2015 at 1:30 pm

Quincy is definitely above average in African-American skin color and hair types. He looks like he has a white parent. Where say nick cannon, tyrese, Michael B Jordan look typically African-American and not one black parent and white. Quincy looks a lot like my dad side since they are all mulattoes and Caucasian and native or a mixer of them all. Most people looking at this young man would think he is not just African-American and that he has significant European mixture.

andrew November 10, 2015 at 1:42 pm

@ fuzzy

I agree with you that you have more experience than me about “African-Americans”, btw I dont believe this guy has 2 (biological) AA parents

follers November 10, 2015 at 2:53 pm

You’re saying that this man is not Quincy’s biological father?

andrew November 10, 2015 at 3:30 pm

He definitely looks like Al B. Sure! (and nothing like Porter) so he must be his biological father. However, did you just added his parents names or were they already in the description?

follers November 10, 2015 at 3:31 pm

They were in there since kerrywhite submitted the page.

andrew November 10, 2015 at 3:38 pm

I think Kimberly Porter would deserve a profile.

fuzzybear44 November 10, 2015 at 9:58 pm

Light skin people like Quincy( and brighter), have been part of the AA culture since the 1600’s. Why do you guys think they came up with all these names for light skin people. The women at the Cotton Club, and these colorscale names in 1942(“high yaller, yaller, high brown, vaseline brown, seal brown, low brown, dark brown), and this was in Harlem , I’ve never heard of vaseline brown. The Brown Paper bag test, which my group was so infamous for. All these names like Redbones. As I stated, black people do gather, and colorations like that of ( nick cannon, tyrese, Michael B Jordan), maybe what a typical African-American looks like to you. However people like Sinbad, Derek Jeter, and Quincy are normal to me. Plus now you know that Quincy father is not white Also we’ve already have established from previous comments, that your exposure to mixed blooded people other than your family has been kinda limited. As you said, most people wouldn’t think you were mixed

Quote: I’m light brown but am not Derek jeter complexion.

That comment right there say a lot about your exposure.

My niece just went to a casting call, the white people there, thought she was bi-racial(she’s not) Plus she’s brighter than Quincy

My cousin also brighter than Quincy, who has serious Mack skills (I am so envious of him). Has 27 kids(by 27 different women). Not one of his kids are darker than Quincy. 9 of them are by white women(all the kids look white). 3 by Mexican girls, one Filipina and rest Black girls

What you and others think are above average, is quickly what’s going to become the norm for you

cwm85 November 11, 2015 at 4:33 am

Deter Jeter is mixed… and I never said people wouldn’t think I am mixed. Stop being so defensive this kid looks mixed with white. Not saying he is but he looks it with his skin complexion, hair and phenotype. I have a lot of exposure with mixed race black and white because of my own family and people all over… this guy looks mixed! Not African-American but white and black. And most would think that. The fact you are so defensive about the way he looks is ridiculous. He looks black and white. Not typical African-American. I know African-Americans come in many shades. Duh. But he looks exceptionally beyond just black. I showed pictures of him to people I know and they all guessed he was mixed with white. They were shocked when I said both parents are African-American. And I look the mix I am. African American, Scottish, english, and native. I am light brown with wavy, curly hair. Have some mixed phenotype.

fuzzybear44 November 11, 2015 at 11:10 am

@ Cwm

I’m not attacking you, just showing what you said

(and I never said people wouldn’t think I am mixed)

Here’s what you said in shemar moore page
(cwm85 July 26, 2015 at 1:48 pm
My first cousin mom is white and he looks Italian. My mother is very dark like west African dark and my brother’s and I are a little darker than what people precieve what a mix person looks like.)

( Stop being so defensive this kid looks mixed with white. Not saying he is but he looks it with his skin complexion, hair and phenotype. )

I am not being defensive, nor at anywhere in my comment, did I say he was not mixed. I simply stated that while people like (nick cannon, tyrese, Michael B Jordan )are what you consider typical AA’s. People like(Deter Jeter who I know is mixed btw, Sinbad and Quincy) as well as(nick cannon, tyrese, Michael B Jordan ) are very common in my area.

(this guy looks mixed! Not African-American but white and black. And most would think that.)

You don’t seem to understand that African-American is simply a cultural name. It not a skin color, but a heritage. As I stated, mulattoes or mixed bloods have been part of it since the 1600’s. Also saying an AA is mixed blooded, is like saying the sun is hot, just a fact. Here’s something by a high yellow man


(The fact you are so defensive about the way he looks is ridiculous. He looks black and white.)

Again never stated he was not part white, nor am I being defensive about the way he looks. Simply saying I see his complexion all the time( in my house, school , the neighborhood etc). His look is very common around here

( They were shocked when I said both parents are African-American)

That only proves to me, that the people you talked to, have very limited exposure

cwm85 November 10, 2015 at 8:51 am

I see what you’re saying… he looks black mix with European. And perhaps he is.

midori29 April 6, 2017 at 11:46 am

@Andrew ALL of the ethnicities you mentioned are BLACKS too

“Dominican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Cape Verdean, and North African” ALL BLACKS EVEN IF THEY DONT KNOW IT.

midori29 April 6, 2017 at 11:50 am

West Africans pics Quincy fits right in Tauregs, subsaharan from Niger woman

phaedra April 14, 2016 at 5:48 pm

Andrew, you should win the most stupidest person award (as usual).

You can be 100% African and look like this. Haven’t you heard of North Africans? In fact, they’re usually much more lighter featured than him.

Eurocentric fool.

midori29 April 6, 2017 at 12:16 pm

@Phaedra you can be subsaharan black African and look exactly like Quincy too. In North African the lighter Arabs would call him a slave and alot of derogatory black African names.

Many East Africans have Arab blood in them. As for North Africans, there are North Africans who look mixed, some who look white and are just black. The average na is probably mostly Caucasian (with a slight touch of black) I don’t think he’d be out of place in the South of Northern Africa.

Point of the matter is, he looks mixed cause he’s from the new world. You can see Euro elements and ssa elements in him. He looks like several of my Caribbean friends who say they’re mulattoes.

The oddest thing is he does not like a British/black mixture. He looks more like a Latino mulatto and would fit in the Caribbean pretty well.
