    If somebody finds the obituaries for Samuel Levi Sawyer (1924-2005) and Melanee Sawyer nee Willis (1932-1999), let me know.

    3 years ago Kali posted that her grandmother’s sister Carlton (married to Ben) died in Connecticut at the age of 84.
    I found an obituary that’s potentially the same woman.

    What’s interesting is that Hawk last name appears as the last name of her mother.

    There’s a family on familysearch that matches Carlton’s family. I thought Kali’s mother was just white Jewish, but these people are Christian and black. Maybe she’s a quarter Jewish?

      Jews are Middle Easterners genetically close to Saudi Arabs, according to Internet scholars like the one with the ethnicelebs account “Lelo4″.

      She has stated:
      “It was a pleasant surprise. I got to bring out my Yiddish, go on radio stations and perform Yiddish rap. My grandmother always spoke Yiddish in the house, which had this great Jewish vibe omnipresent, but I didn’t even realize it. I didn’t know these words, like, ‘Move your tookis,’ weren’t spoken everywhere”.

    She’s a black female. End of story. Both her parents are black, that rules out her being biracial. Go to southern Africa, there are lots of light skinned people who aren’t mixed at all but are black. Black people come in different shades, I guess American think that Africans are dark, that’s mostly west Africans who are darker. It’s like how Italians are darker than Germans, but they’re both European

    This girl almost looks evenly triracial.

        what do you think about Lionel Richie’s wife?

        • fuzzybear44 says:

          I never looked at her before. However taking the time now, she looks latin or arab. However like I said before black here are all kinds of ways . So if she’s AA, she’s taken traits from all those MGM bloodlines.As I have stated before, My aunts on my father side all look like old white women, and they insist on being called black. My mother always jokes with them about that. They get my mother back by calling her a black jap(which people have tease her about since she was a kid
