    “Her biological grandfather, Marcus Grant, was a part African American and Hawaiian soldier stationed in Hawaii during World War II. He had a child with a woman named Lilian, who was part Japanese and Hawaiian. The infant boy–Dina Eastwood’s father Michael–was given up for adoption and taken in by a Latino couple named Ruiz.”

    Can’t believe she was with that oldass racist Clint Eastwood who is a KNOWN racist. Some black/mixed women are so desperate for some white d!ck that they throw away their morals and any self-respect that they have for a night with a white man.
