    What a bunch of sheltered morons. This girl looks very biracial, her European genes are clearly and obviously present. I hate how biracial actresses are used as standard examples of “black beauty” when they’re obviously mixed with white. It’s kind of sad how these dark skinned black females with African features look up to these light skinned biracial celebrities and wonder why they don’t look like them. There are actually a lot of decent looking black actresses, I’m not sure why the black community doesn’t use them as examples. The black community can be just as ignorant as the white community. They put light skinned women with “good hair” on a pedestal. It’s not just white people who think biracial people look better.

    • You’re acing like every black person is dark-skinned. There are black people “carribean” which I am, who are light-skinned with some curly hair texture.

      Yes, we are mixed with some other stuff, but that is clearly fainted, and as in fainted, I mean history.

      Of course she is mixed. You can tell from a mile away. And her features aren’t quite the same with mines, but I can assure you not every black person is dark-skinned with tiny curls. When will people see that?

        Ligth skin and loose curly hair comes from admixutre. Only people indenial want to act like black Africans look Halle Berry. Get out of here with that.

      light skin is more attractive, it’s science

    She looks 20% black. Her father must be mixed.

      She looks like an aunt of mine on the Nigerian side of my family. Just because a person is light skin and has a small pointier nose (my description and I am Nigerian, East African, NA, and Asian) doesn’t automatically mean they are mixed, sorry. There are some people that look like her in my family that are NOT mixed.

  3. WTF says:
