      He has been whitewashed by Netflix LOL

      • FreedomThinker88 says:

        He’s not whitewash. He’s a light-skinned Black person who’s skin color varies in the light and tends to tan in the summer time like Beyoncé, Stephen Curry, Aaliyah, Erykah Badu, Jada Pickett, Rihanna, and LisaRaye McCoy. These people weren’t dark-skinned to begin with (look at their baby pics).

  2. Multiethnicchick says:

    His mom has admixture and his father clearly isn’t black. Just stupid racist Americans refusing top acknowledge admixture as usual. He’s a mixed race kid and looks like what Americans incorrectly think of as the basic mestizo latino

    • andrew says:

      He is even passable for North African.

    • alicemedina says:

      Ok… But he’s still African-American. Almost all African-Americans have admixture he’s no diffrrent from Chris Brown or 2Pac. And Al B Sure is definitely a black man. In fact his parents (Quincy’s grandparents) are both darker than him. Albert Brown II would fit right into the Igbo tribe in Nigeria https://postimg.cc/JtD22KZK
      The mother is also a regular brown skinned black woman
      Quincy is black

      • MissMaria says:

        @Alicemedina, Quincy is Welsh-American and not African-American/Black. He identifies with his Welsh roots so he is just Welsh and his ethnicity should be listed as only Welsh.

        • Oaken05 says:

          You need to be banned for this foolishness. You are offering absolutely nothing of value to this site.

        • Mixed Kidd says:

          He said nothing about being Welsh, what are you on? I can see Spanish or Portuguese ancestry, but Welsh?! You must have lost your mind lol

          • FreedomThinker88 says:

            He neither of those things. Damn! All Black Americans have admixtures, but we’re mostly Black. It’s not far-fetch for him to look the way he does and still have 70% or more black dna. He could pass for Somalian or Ethiopians. And again, he is neither Latino or Hispanic or even White. Is there some admixture in his dna? Maybe, but knowing his mother’s family (personally), they don’t identify as Latino/Hispanics or mixed because they aren’t if you knew his family. None of their fam are no near related to Spanish. Damn, WTH y’all think South America and the Caribbean Islands are mixed with?! A lot more Slaves were drop off in those areas than America, so (duhhhh) quite naturally they’ll have similar to Black Americans. Damn, y’all act like Afro American, Afro Latin/Hispanics and Afro Caribbean who are less than 40% mixed-race look drastically different from each other ‍♀️ We may have different cultures/accents and speak different languages, but we’re not THAT much different looking. But those same features can be found in Africa too (Eritreans), so boom! At the end of the day, Quincy is black, his parents are black and his grandparents are black! It doesn’t matter how mixed-race they look. It all depends, but some of us can out looking mixed with 70% Black dna. Just like Stephen Curry and his parents’ parents are black, T.I. Harris and his kids are all Black, LisaRaye McCoy is black, Beyoncé’s and her kids are Black, Puma Badu is Black, Zoe Kravitz is black and so forth. They’re ALL BLACK people who came out light-skinned, and none of them have no full non-black parents. Skin tone can varies in shades and can skip a generation ‍♀️ Especially if two Black parents with light-skinned in their gene pool can produce a light-skinned kid such as Erykah Badu’s daughter (Puma) or LisaRaye McCoy. That’s why genetics are so complex and extraordinary things about humanity. You never know what you’re going to get.

          • Mixed Kidd says:

            @FreedomThinker88 I don’t know why you’re so offended & mad by me thinking he might have other ancestry, cuz that’s a you problem. You don’t have to try to lecture me things I already knew. Yes I know Africa is extremely diverse and that black Americans have admixture, you’re acting like I’m saying he’s 100% Spanish, tf? And as for the Caribbean/Latino part, I never said anything about them not being mixed. If Quincy took a DNA test, he definitely would have a lot of different ancestry, does that mean he has to stop identifying as African American? No, everyone has the right to learn about their cultures that they never knew the same way you do (or you don’t at least it seems). There’s plenty of Africans that speak French, Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, etc. but in their dialect because that’s part of their culture. AFrican Americans speak English but doesn’t mean they say they’re African & English?

          • Mixed Kidd says:

            & even the full language fluently so bonne journée ✌️

          • Katerina says:

            The Welsh can sometimes be as dark as Spaniards or Portuguese people because there’s DNA from Iberia in Wales, and Spaniards can be as light as the Welsh or other Britons since Germanic tribes were spread all over Europe. There really is no one standard look in any of these countries.

            I don’t know about Quincy Brown but Quincy Jones confirmed that he has some Welsh ancestry, so the person might have been confusing the two.

    • Ethnicity37 says:

      His father has two phenotypical Black parents. Most African-Americans are a multigenerational mix. He is no different.

  3. alexgxo says:

    I think he’s a throwback gene: his bio parents both look “black” as in 3/4 or more SSA 1/4 or less Euro. But he came out looking mixed. He straight up looks like a multiracial Caribbean.

    He probably got more of the euro genes in his appearance. If he wants to call himself black fine though because as far as we know both his parents were predominately black Americans.

  4. phaedra says:

    He looks South Asian and African.

  5. JaiJai says:

    He’s Black. Just like Nick Cannon, Chris Brown, Marlon Wayans etc. His minimal Caucasian ancestry just popped up due to genetic variation.

    This is a similar case with Nicole Ari Parker.
