    His Mother is not pure Black. Despite this, I never considered Chris Brown Black, he looks mixed race.

      Well you might not consider him black, but he certainly does. Also pretty much the avg black person in this country is not pure. So if chris is mixed race to you, you might as well say the rest of the black population is to

    He looks mixed.

    Still waiting on that DNA Tests. Black Americans always like to claim he’s fully Black. The bones are already there. His mother has brown hair, green/gray eyes, and very fair-skinned. Those are not Black features.

    My predictions are 60% Black, 25% Caucasian/White, and 15% Native American.

      Everyone knows that the avg black person in the usa isn’t pure. However whether Chris is full black or not, he certainly sees himself that way. Here he is stating such in May 29,2015

      “I tend to accept the negative or the riff raff becuz I know what it’s like to be a young black ‘n—-‘ in America.”

      People on this site have a tendency to radically overestimate the likelihood of Native-American ancestry in Americans, black or white.

      Native-American ancestry is extremely uncommon in the US. The vast majority of those who claim it do so based on dubious family histories or because they think it makes them more interesting etc.; it’s rarely verified.

      Moreover, people on this site don’t seem to know what Native-American features look like. Native-Americans are genetically closely related to East Asians. People with significant NA ancestry therefore tend to have a vaguely Asiatic look to them (this is quite common amongst Latin-American mestizos).

      15 percent Native-American ancestry would be a substantial amount. Chris Brown doesn’t look at all NA. He looks like he’s got a huge amount of White ancestry (Barrack Obama is 50% white and looks blacker than Chris Brown).

      I’d guess he’s 60 to 70 percent black and 30 to 40 percent white; anything else a DNA test might pick up would be background noise.

    Chris Brown is scum of the Earth. Everybody hates him.
