    She literally looks like a mixture of Rihanna, Faith Evans, and Tyra Banks. More Rihanna and Faith Evans.

    Okay maybe a tad lower than 45 at most.

    She looks like Rihanna. Probably anywhere between 20-45 percent European going solely by looks.

      You’ve be surprised just how much those features can trick you

      Seeing how the avg AA has Euro ancestry, that wouldn’t be a shock. Also again, African American is our cultural name, that’s all

      @Alexgro she looks more to me like Tyra Banks or model Eva Pigford or a heavier Vanessa Williams the former Miss America. She is an excellent singer and sang very well at the New Years Eve Celebration Tyra Banks who tested only 14 percent European admixed.

      Similiar looking other African Americans.
      Tyra Banks and model Eva Pigford (no white family members for over 100 years)

      I think alot of people who are not exposed to African Americans or African Carribeans and who only rely on television really do not know how diverse we can look, without recent admixtures.

      In the United States she is black
      It does have European blood, there are Afro descendants with European blood
      I think I saw a girl’s channel
      She had 100 African blood
      But she had white relatives
      Her skin was dark, like the skin of Africans
