    She’s probably mixed with white and Native American, maybe Asian.

  2. WTF says:

    OMG y’all dumbasses got her ethnicity WRONG. I typed in “Traci Bingham ethnicity” and got this shit: Bingham was born in North Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1968, to a librarian mother and an aircraft technician father. Her mother is African American and her father is of Wampanoag Native American and Italian descent.

    • WTF says:

      She isn’t just black. Dumbasses. Why is it listed only as “African American”. She’s mixed not black. Stop claiming mixed people as black, dumb niggas!!!

        Thanks to Writer_278’s help, the text clearly and blatantly states, “Her parents, Hazel E. “Betty” (Owens) and Lafayette L. Bingham, Sr., are both black. Traci has stated that her father also has Italian and Cherokee Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this ancestry has been verified/documented.”

        Then the text names Bingham’s paternal grandparents and includes a link to her father’s entry on the census, which lists him and his parents as black.

        If I can write this in a way that would be any more clear and explicit, please tell me what that is.

        For the record, it’s probably the first time I’ve been called a “dumb n–ga”.

    She looks like she belongs on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

    “Correction”- Bingham is of African American descent. I have found an obituary record of her brother LaFayette, as well as census records which document both of her parents as African Americans.
