That goes to show you that not all biracial people come out looking like models. People seem to believe that lie.

Could you take out the web.archive.org source since that one says her father is Italian-American and her mother is African American? And just keep the YouTube video and twitter status link but make the twitter status clickable?

I Can’t Take All The Credit. A User From The Tia Mowry Page Found It, So Thank He/She!

What exactly is your point? the Bahamanians are either black or white Bermuda has a similar make-up as does Haiti and then there are those who have parents of both races.

What to you is African American? Get a clue, ‘African Americans’ are typically black and at least one other race but may be two or three more races.
