    Her father isn’t freaking African. He’s an aboriginal American. https://www.abebooks.com/ADVERTISING-Am%C3%A9rique-Lef%C3%A8vre-Utile/22844318356/bd

    Trinidadian is not African, but mixed.

      This is so ignorant. Trinidadian is aboriginal American and real aboriginal Americans are “black” people. Her father is an indigenous Trinidadian that’s why he doesn’t look like an African. We don’t look like Africans because we’re NOT Africans. Whoever runs this website is ignorant AF. That African-Trinidadian label is BOGUS.

        Most people don’t believe and are not aware of that, and the evidence is sparse, it exists but is limited. Even though Africans, Australoid, and even Austronesians made it to the Americas, which they most likely did, their numbers were few and far between over several thousand years, and they never established sustained populations. People in the Caribbean, by the time of the Columbian exchange, were all descendants of the Siberian nomads that crossed over the Bering Strait.

    She’s more white than she is black. But never enough to be ‘the white girl’.
