Blasians are ugly

Adamina September 10, 2016 at 10:41 am

Right… And you are cute

Why most of these most famous black stars in USA are mostly really mixed or African descent but from other countries like Jamaica an not African-American?

fuzzybear44 November 30, 2015 at 1:55 am

Well that’s not completely accurate, most of our celebs are home grown. However people from places like Jamaica for instances, have been coming into the African American community since like the 1800’s. I had no idea while growing up , that Sidney Poitier ancestry was from The Bahamas( but he was born here). Or that my maternal grandfather, came from Latin American. Does that make me less of an American because of where one of my grandparents came from?

Now as far as the mix thing goes, AA’s have go through the same thing every other black group has . There has been a lot of mixing going on, voluntary or involuntary. We’ve had thousands of half black child shipped here from Europe in the 50’s. Also from these DNA results people show, AA’s here are starting to get more and more diluted. Plus that’s what Hollywood is looking for

Eurasians look better than Blasians to me. No offense.

xoxo November 26, 2015 at 1:50 am

I bet you look like shit. Hating ass bitches like you make me sick.

LucarioCooper November 29, 2015 at 9:27 pm

You see this one “blasian” and automatically think they all look like this.

I hate the website, no more reading the comments. It’s too racist.

abbracci October 7, 2015 at 10:40 pm

Damn this dude is a ugly creep who dated a 17 year old. Black and Asian mixed people look like Asians with super dark skin. Asian genes are really strong.

He’s disgusting. I can’t believe he banged a tranny, I feel like throwing up.

mexicanpride July 19, 2015 at 6:53 pm

He’s ugly. Why are him, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne famous when they’re nothing special?

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 1:39 pm

Pedophile tranny loving trash who thinks he’s Egyptian

cwm85 July 19, 2015 at 2:44 pm

You are ignorant… he’s Vietnamese and Afro Jamaican.

California July 19, 2015 at 2:48 am

I knew he was mixed, he doesn’t look fully black. Blind bitches.

WTF October 11, 2014 at 3:53 am

He looks more black to me. Didn’t even know he was mixed. Some Blasians come out looking either more Asian (some look Filipino to me) or more black. Either way, he’s ugly af and his music is trash. His cousin is cute though.

Kerrywhite July 19, 2015 at 4:39 pm

He looks more Black, but he still looks mixed 0_o
Obviously he’s not fully Black.

abbracci September 15, 2014 at 10:01 pm

He’s ugly.

Iveee__ September 7, 2012 at 11:19 pm

Damn he fine so sexy BlacChyna lucky

biraciallexi July 1, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Just because his mom has a bit dark skin doesn’t mean she’s mix. If you know there is a lot of asians who have dark yellow skin. I’m half asian and when i visit thailand there is a lot of people with a bit of dark pint in there skin, and a lot of my family in cambodia is brown skin asians so asians can come in yellow and brown skin. Some americans don’t know because they either never been to asia or aren’t asian.

kennedy April 8, 2012 at 6:48 pm

well im going to be father soon so my child will be jamican and vietnamese

Shaddaii April 1, 2012 at 4:25 pm

His mother is not only Vietnamese. She looks like a blasian woman so is she Afro-Vietnamese or is she mixed? Please explain.

basedgoddesstina September 8, 2012 at 10:59 pm

You must a blind little cunt because judging someone based on their appearance is fucking ignorant. Hope you get hit by a car soon. Xoxo open your eyes and make your brain a bit more useful.

basedgoddesstina September 9, 2012 at 5:49 pm

He’s actually 1/2 vietnamese and 1/2 jamaican african american. He’s stated that in numerous interviews please fix your info.

ConfusedBreed February 9, 2013 at 11:41 pm


westovermarching October 10, 2014 at 1:00 pm

you’re from Jamaica an American citizen and you’re of African Descent. or your parents are from Jamaica you are and American and you’re of African Descent. Jamaican is not a race but a a Nationality

woow February 9, 2012 at 12:20 pm

woow i didnt know travie mccoy was his cousin :o

babyface February 8, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Well i disagree to a agree am JAMAICAN .. i was in st Catherine Jamaica an i hate d fact that the author use the term AFRO JAMAICAN nah i definitely disagree with that term we aint living in d 80 an am sure u dnt c none of us with noo damn afro so cum up with a better term r better yet just say JAMAICAN an leave it at that don’t add on are take off anything …

lalalala January 14, 2012 at 9:46 pm

his rap name means Thanking You God Always google it nothing to do with Lion Cheetah (cheater) Tiger Woods

Maria December 28, 2011 at 8:08 pm

Tyga has some asian looks.At first I thought he black and japanese.

iAMjaleese December 24, 2011 at 11:49 pm

he’s actually half vietnamese and african jamaican, he’s stated tht in like 10 interviews!!!

ooo February 27, 2012 at 2:26 am



just waste of time

WOW December 8, 2011 at 5:21 pm

Dude, I’ve always thought Tyga was just African American! This proves you CANNOT determine a person’s race by appearance. I’ve always thought Chris Brown was mixed. But, I recently discovered he’s just African American, (although, it’s kinda obviously he’s black. Just look at his hair, and facial structure). It’s funny how things are. But that’s life!

Kerrywhite July 19, 2015 at 4:41 pm

Chris Brown is part Native American…

Alicia December 6, 2011 at 8:02 am

Jamaican Black is very different since Jamaican blacks are mixed with everything under the sun like myself. Our features are slightly different because of this and because of where we are situated on the glove. So the author has alright to make the differentiation. Afro-Jamaicans are nothing like African-Americans. Both have their special and unique differences that I admire.

iAMjaleese December 24, 2011 at 11:52 pm

as half jamaican yur right, and wrong, there are chinese jamaicans, white jamaicans, yu name it its there. but black jamaican is black.

karmelleyez October 27, 2011 at 7:32 pm

Well, African American and Afro-Jamaican are just black people from two different countries, so that would mean he’s 3/4 black. Just one slave ship stopped in Ja., the other stopped in U.S….Different nationality and culture, same race of people

yupyup October 30, 2011 at 3:07 pm

you cant say that they are the same because they come from the same place. that would be like saying russian and mongolians are the same because they are from asia. unless you are referring to his skin color..

careaba February 8, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I’m Jamaica an I have to tell u we r not the same as African America becuz they a mostly juss black.the people in ja r mixed with every thing my granny is white German and my papa is Swedish Chinese and Jamaica we r a melting pot in the us they will call u black but in ja u r Jamaica (yadi)

Jamaican american seems wrong to me, If he is jamaican how can he be american??? Just like there are different races in America there are different races in Jamaica, plus its a nationality not an ethniciy.

Dummy May 20, 2011 at 9:44 pm

you are supposed to be whatever your parents are his father is jaimaican so he too is jaimaican, along with whatever the mother is.
