Okay I’m hondurian and so are both my parents, I’ve been there and I have family there. Being hondurian is not a race, BUT they are Latinos!!!!! In other words the native language is Spanish. So every one who is from Honduras is a Latino no matter if they’re black, white, or brown. That’s what Latinos are made up from -_________-

Hondurans are a mixture of Indian black and Spaniard Honduras is full of color…JUST SO PPL NO HONDURAN ISNT A RACE IT’S A NATIONALITY!! …oh my lord so…there for rocsi can be considered black!!!!! ….or just called rocsi mixed…she is of mixed race with african descent so she black n therefore is liable(likely to do so or be something) to work at B.E.T bLACK entertainment

terrence once said on 106 that she’s spanish honduran

Wtf March 24, 2011 at 2:48 pm

It obvious she’s not just Spanish,that’s most likely her culture heritage

boobboo April 25, 2011 at 4:09 pm

IKR rite i think shes black and honduran because she even said it

boobboo June 12, 2011 at 4:41 pm

OH also look on wikipedia it says she is of Honduran and Belize, and Belize isn’t Hispanic it is actually multiracial it is Asian, mostly black, and some European descent.

ava June 12, 2011 at 7:05 pm

no shes just honduran

Lempira November 6, 2010 at 12:59 pm

These are black people in Honduras. This is what rocsi is. She is a black Honduran. I’m trying to figure out how she straightened her hair like that.

People of african desent are all over the islands, central and south america. Why do american blacks think they are the only black people?

black wallstreet November 7, 2010 at 1:29 am

To afro

That’s not really fair or accurate.While it’s true that a lot of black people don’t know about you,many do.The problem is the ones of us that do know,when we call someone down there black they get insulted and say I’m not black.They say I’m Mestizo,or I’m mixed or whatever anything but black.I mean when you have 125 shades before you get to black,you got issues

boobboo April 25, 2011 at 4:09 pm

its tracks

kkathy tolivour February 11, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Her nationailty really depends on her FATHERS BLOODLINE

bzbunni October 22, 2010 at 12:08 am

Techinically, it is SCIENTIFIC fact that all races ORIGINATED from AFRICANS, so is it far to say that everyone has some AFRICAN in them

I was born in Honduras to a black family.My grandmother was as black as anyone from the south. So is my father. My grandfather was not black but of indian ( from india) desent, his grandfather was actually a white english man. He was condidered a coolie. In my family some of us are very light skinned, some very black. Some look hispanic because of intermarriage, but….we all consider ourselves the same. We all consider ourselves black. There is a dark-skinned black population in Hounduras who speak mostly english not spanish and whose roots are in the british colonial Islands of the carribean. Many attended english schools in Honduras not spanish schools. Those who stayed in Honduras until a later age learned to speak spanish.

How can BET have Honduran person host a Black Entertainment Network. Black folk are having a hard time with getting job as it is

Fuzzybear August 27, 2010 at 6:43 pm

maybe she part Afro-Honduran,because she doesn’t really say.Also since we come in so many colors,maybe they thought the fans of the show wouldn’t notice.Because I just thought she was another light skin sista to,I didn’t know where she was from

Anonymous August 28, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Fuzzybear, Not everybody is of African descent. A lot Hispanics are dark. The only way to tell if someone is of African descent is by a DNA test.

Fuzzybear August 28, 2010 at 8:11 pm

don’t take this the wrong way,but your just fooling yourself,their dark for a reason.Now it true not everyone is of recent lineage.It could be 1 to 200yrs old,but traits could pop up anytime.DNA is funny,you could have the same DNA traits for a certain area,yet look totally different(in color and facial features);don’t believe me check it out yourself.Now I did say maybe she had the recent lineage,but the odds are pretty good.There have been lots of stuff written about this topic.No one down there wants to say their part black,because they get treated so bably,so they say their mestizo.I know your not going to like what I’m saying and that cool with me

Lena March 23, 2011 at 7:29 pm

Who cares all races are having just as much trouble finding jobs right now. What happen to equality , I’m sure she auditioned or interviewed for the job along with a lot of other people who wanted that spot, stop hating just do u, get over it!

Wtf March 24, 2011 at 2:50 pm
