Shocking: Biracial celebrities you didn’t know were mixed

When I was in high school, one of the favorite pastimes of fellow students was to declare how much Indian they had in their blood. That seemed like another age when blacks didn’t want to accept their full ethnicity and, like Tiger Woods, clang to any and other ethnicity while downplaying the blackness within them.

Turns out that some of the people and celebrities who made claims of having “Indian in their blood,” like megastar Prince, were indeed correct, but those folks who do have Indian ancestry aren’t who you think they are.

Below are some of the shocking ethnic origins of todays biggest celebrities with the help of blackflix.com and buzzfeed.com.

    The ONLY way these celebrities could be “Black”
    is via the racist-’One-Drop Rule’ (which was
    created by racial-supremacists in order to
    degrade BLACK lineage and which was
    also banned in the United States in 1967).

    [[[This means that any BLACK person who
    supports the black-lineage degrading' and
    racist-'One-Drop Rule' --- either has
    no self-esteem, is insane or is an idiot.]]]
    .
    THERE IS absolutely NO SUCH THING AS A
    so-called ‘LIGHT-SKINNED BLACK’ person.

    The LINKS in the SIDEBAR of my YouTube
    CHANNEL explain this in greater detail.

    More people need to realize and accept the FACT
    that THERE IS actually NO SUCH THING AS
    A so-called “LIGHT-SKINNED BLACK” person
    … but rather … such individuals and groups are
    actually people who are of a ‘Multi-Generational
    Multiracially-Mixed’ (MGM-Mixed) Lineage that
    some may have been pressured or encouraged
    to ignore or downplay — AND — even the very term
    of “Light-Skinned Black” is a racist-oxymoron that
    was created as part of the racist-’One-Drop Rule’
    in order to degrade racially-Black ancestral-lineage.

    People of Mixed-Race lineage should NOT
    feel pressured to ‘identify’ according to
    any standards other than one’s own.

    The legal -application of the racist-’One-Drop Rule’
    (ODR) was banned in the U.S. way back in 1967.

    .
    There is no proof that a ‘color-based slave hierarchy’
    (or that ‘color-based social-networks’) ever existed
    as common entities — within the continental U.S.

    It was the ‘Rule of Matriliny (ROM) —
    [a.k.a. 'The Rule of Partus' (ROP)] — and
    NOT the racist-’One-Drop Rule’ (ODR) —
    that was used to ‘create more enslaved
    people’ on the continental U.S.
    .
    This is because the chattel-slavery system that was
    once found on the antebellum-era, continental U.S.
    was NOT “color-based” (i.e. “racial”) — but rather
    – it was actually “mother-based” (i.e. ‘matrilineal’).

    There were many ways (and not solely the sexual assault
    and sexual exploitation of the women-of-color) in which
    ‘white’ lineage entered the familial bloodlines of
    enslaved-people found on the continental U.S.

      Are you serious? What are you trying to say that lightskinned black people are a race of their own? Let me give you the definition of Black – it defines any person with “African” heritage in their blood. So if a person has an african somewhere in their family lineage- they are black. You’re pretty stupid, and i’m upset that i wasted a minute of my life reading your uneducated post. You are the one with self hatred in your heart. I guarantee you go to any white person with your B,S and they’ll laugh you out of town. Black is Black -light skin, brown skinned, darkskined, etc. It’s BLACK. Deal with it!!!

      • Wizzo

        You are an idiot for this; if that’s the case, EVERYBODY’S BLACK, especially if you’re gonna say bi racials as black! SMH! Black is anybody European/Western Born Two Shades darker than a brown paper bag or darker; Coffee (Men)/Mocha (Women) are brown-skin people; Browns are people non-mixed PB complexioned or lighter; Mahogany is Mixed! THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT RACES OF WEST AFRICAN SUBSIDIARIES! Another thing; THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN; WE ARE WEST AFRICAN SUBSIDIARIES!

    • Wizzo

      I agree!

  • Treenie Weenie

    With every Black person, they must point out that it’s “easy to tell” that they are mixed w/ Chinese, or whatever ..but do they realize that the eyes on Naomi & Ne-Yo originate in South Africa, and within the San Bush (Khoisan) tribe of Africa? High cheekbones are, also, very African ..Shoot, Chinese can trace their roots to Africa (one Chinese biologist, recently, found this to be true in a DNA test) …Shoot, EVERYONE, I’m sure, can trace their roots back to Africa, considering the dominant genes, and the fact that Black people can produce every race on the continent (although y’all claim that Africans can ONLY be dark, despite Khoisan people, and not every Black is African, i.e., the people of Andaman Island & the indigenous Filipinos & Tasmanian-Aboriginal people) …So, WHY are WE (Blacks) always considered the “mixed” ones, if every feature derives from US? LOL
