    Her mother’s maiden name is James according to her British birth record, and there’s a marriage between Matthew J. Emmanuel and Deborah A. James in 1985.

    There’s no such thing as biracial black. Biracial already implies you may be part black. Whoever wrote the description is stupid and needs to go to the Dominican Republic

      No. Biracial implies that you are part one race and part another. Not part black. Be careful who you call stupid ;)

    • Jarap says:

      Biracial does not necessarily mean mixed with Black. You are the ignorant one. Biracial could be Asian and White or Native American and Asian or Native and White or Pacific Islander/Hawaiian. There are 5 races and any mixture of two of those can be considered Biracial. It can also mean Black with any of those races, but not always.

    She could pass as a Latina or something with straightened hair.

    On Mother’s Day 2018 in the UK, Nathalie Emmanuel posted a photo of her mother and grandmother on Instagram, taken in the mid-70’s. On the comments section in response to a follower on Instagram, Nathalie replied that her father and mother are BOTH mixed with British and Caribbean. Her maternal grandmother is/was white British, which would make her mother mixed race and only half Caribbean, not full Caribbean like you state Ethni. Personally, I think Nathalie looks completely mixed race, she does not look 75% Caribbean, more like 50% White and 50% Black. All of the above has come straight from Nathalie herself on social media, so make of it what you will…
