    She looks like she has a significant amount of European ancestry. Probably English via Barbados and Spanish via her Mexican background.

    She has light eyes. Thats a feature exclusive to call her Black, Mexican or whatever, somewhere she got white in her

  3. Ethnicity37 says:

    Stacey Dash’s mom is Black. So her mom is obviously a Black-Mexican.

    She’s black, she’s mixed, or can’t you read?

      @multiethnicchick stop being ignorant all black Americans and Carribeans have been mixed. In the English speaking Carribean and in America black=African mixed.

      • Multiethnicchick says:

        No they aren’t. Half of my family is black Caribbean and if they were mixed, I’d be white. Being 1/8 of something does not make you mixed. You cant compare people with parents of a different race to people with two 90% black parents. It’s obviously not the same. The only ignorant person is you. Stop invalidating mixed race people.

          Your few family members don’t account for the millions of black Caribbean’s who have a significant amount of European DNA. You literally make no sense.
