Diana Ross's eldest son Ross Naess, 29, got married to his baby mama Kimberly Ryan in Santa Barbara, Calif. on Saturday. The beautiful wedding was attended by Diana, 73, who performed at the nuptials, and brother Evan Ross, 28, and his wife Ashlee Simpson Ross, 33.

Kimberly is the mother of Ross' son, Lief, and she's expecting their 2nd baby. Ross's father, billionaire shipping magnate Arne Naess, died in a mountain climbing accident in 2004.

Plus remember these swirling stats - BM swirl marry 25%. BW swirl marry 12% BW got some catching up to do to whiten out the race.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yup just like the 25% of black males who swirl marry vs. 12% of BW. LOL

  • Yall StayWoke

    Diana looks gorgeous.

    Her grandbaby looks full White! This is what Black men want though. They hate themselves so much and will not be happy until their child comes out looking absolutely nothing like them. Black men are a joke. Even when Black women swirl the kids typically still look somewhat mixed. Smh. Black men are mentally ill.

  • Yall StayWoke

  • NicoleZee

    I thought that if a person is biracial that it didn't matter as much who they date. Aren't all of her kids mixed except the oldest daughter with Barry Gordy???

  • Yall StayWoke

    Congrats to all the black men out there with yt kids. You made it! You finally produced something that you can be proud of.I'm sure your white kids have granted you a lifetime of immunity to any form of racism and discrimination. I'm sure whites go out of their way to make you feel welcome, especially while walking in white neighborhoods. I'm sure they could never possibly see you as suspicious in any way now that you are "one of them."

  • Smith Jane

    What about Serena and Halle? Are they self-h8 too?

    SO? Out comes FAKE CONCERN when it's BW swirling my eyes don't lie. Too many BW are pit bull race mammies unlike BM, at 25% swirl marrying are telling BW with action, they're down for the swirl.

  • Miami8981

    I've read the previous comments below and interestingly enough Diana Ross' nick name is "Black". Her close friends and family like Okra and Quincy J. and her baby daddy Berry Gordy all call her "Black". For some reason and it must have been the "look" but I thought both her sons were gay. Welp, I don't know what to say. I'm not often left speechless so I'm just gonna gone ahead and eat my dunnah (spaghetti, salad and garlic knot bread and some cherry pomegranate juice) and watch the news.

  • Bam Bam Li

    Lord ???????

  • Miami8981

    P.S. that baby is too big to be still sucking on a pacifier. My son had his daughter off the pacifier by the time she was 3 months old. We weren't having that pacifier thingy. And my granddaughter did not suck her thumb as a substitute when we got her off the pacifier. Also we cut our little angel off from her bottles of milk and juice earlier than most babies, as well as all the other things parents allow their children to indulge in way beyond the time they should be. My granddaughter is my heartbeat but I told her at 6 months old that it was time for her to get a job.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    On My 600-lb Life, I saw one brother who looked okay, literally playing nurse and maid to his grossly-obese white wife. He just stayed quiet, brought her food, and cleaned her as needed. When they talked about how they met, all he said was "I met her online and thought she was pretty cool".Hmmm

    Even when she got surgery, she needed a walker to take a few steps on the beach. I'm not dissing her but real curious as to how many mobile females he passed over to be with this helpless lady and her four kids.

  • Harley

    those boys surely do not care for melanin do they? so much for keeping wealth in the black community...

  • Harley

    I figured as well.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    I'm confused by the negative comments in regards to blacks marrying non blacks. I don't even care this much when someone of my ethnicity marries outside of it....?

  • AG

    Cute wedding.

  • Harley

    maybe because black wealth and empowerment mean nothing to you.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    What I find disrespectful however is the fact that Diana wore white also. That's a no no.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Diana started it!! ? Hey!

  • macko

    How about you live your life and let other people live theirs. Save that remark for your kids when you talk to them.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    And that has to do what with marrying outside ones race? Blacks can't be empowering and wealthy marrying outside their race? And because i don't get the negative comments about ppl you don't know marrying who they want means black wealth and empowerment mean nothing to me? Ok...

  • macko

    That's right. How's yours?

  • macko

    You're into that, aren't you?

  • Li

    His father was a White swede.

  • Li

    Correction. If you read Berry's autobio, "Black" is the name she GAVE Berry. And it's referenced in the Motown musical. HER nickname isn't black; Berry's nickname is Black.
    I don't get it.

  • macko

    A whole lot of people have Black and White issues....about other people's life. Why don't y'all start with your own families and stop telling other people how to love and marry.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Exactly! The hate is real here...

  • macko

    Did you marry who your mother wanted you to?

  • macko

    Congratulation to Ross and his new family.

  • Smith Jane

    How bout.. no

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Both her sons look like the don't bathe regularly. Dude needs to brush his teeth.

  • PlayerP

    Those cheeks!!!! Lief is too cute! Diane still lookin good.

  • Miami8981

    Google the interview again. Her nick name is also black. I knew about Berry also being called black but we're talking about Diana here in this post.

    I saw the live interview she did years ago and she stated in that interview that they each call each other black as well as certain friends and family,.

  • 88

    Miss Ross finally got what she wanted now all of her descendants except for Rhonda are caucasian.

  • TeeTee

    well supposedly not Tracy either but I am not sure I believe that either. She supposed to be Gordy kid too.

  • the conscious one

    Congrats, Diana. The black gene has been completely erased in two generations. Mission accomplished.

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    What does your baby have to do with theirs??

  • Itzgoingdown

    Only because you can't find a White Man willing to impregnate you.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Impossible. The only blacks in this country with no European ancestry are African immigrants. G00gle Black Americans DNA Professor Louis Gates.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Interesting. Seems like each generation of "black Americans" is just getting lighter and lighter.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Too bad you can't find a White Man who wants you. lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Wow. Sad on multiple levels.

  • Itzgoingdown

    I see 10 black men with obese black women for every one black man I see with an obese white woman. Shrugs

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It seems if they're biracial they end up marrying white like 80% of the time.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I think the wealth factor is what has more than a few Black folks side eyeing this man over his bridal choice. Were he a nikka that just jumped out of jail and married some fat, wobbly, hillbilly, cracker broad from the trailer park across town, I don't think anybody would care because that's become sort of the norm for a lot of Black men anyway.

    But Evan and Naess are filthy rich. Their dad owned the Scandinavian equivalent of UPS, and he died worth several billion dollars. Diana Ross is probably worth a good $175 million. Although Evan has made it a point to slum in places like Bankhead and Riverdale, neither he nor his brother I think ever gave marrying a Black woman any serious consideration. Is that really a surprise?

    They have their mother's DNA. Diana Ross is a beautiful, intelligent lady and a living legend as well. But she doesn't have any use for Black culture anymore. At all. And I think, even if her sons had ever sought a Black wife, that sister would have caught hell from Diana, who is known to be more than a little intrusive when it comes to her kids' relationships. Just ask Bu Thiam.

    I'm sort of surprised Naess didn't marry a man because he has lots of gay friends in NYC and San Francisco.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Do you ever leave the house or are you some halfcrazed black man hater that your relatives don't let out the house? lol

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Diana Ross gay looking sons are not black. Why the hell do ya'll keep grouping mutts as fully black people? Their father was a WHITE man and the last time I checked white men don't produce black children. Diana self hating ass has one black child, THATS IT!

  • Dahl

    Amazing....despite the baby being a "quadroon", the black genes pushed thru in that little one...

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Beautiful family.

  • ???TheRider???

    No no no, Tracee is definitely Robert Silverstein's bio daughter.

  • the guest

    Diana Ross' beautiful sons are not black but so what. President Barak Obama is not black either. But black people pick and choose which biracial and multiracial people they want to call black. Biracial and Multiracial people are not black even those who feel politically inclined to call themselves black.

    Black people who believe in the one drop rule are self hating because the one drop rule was created by white slavemasters. Why promote a theory created by slavemasters? Because black people want to minimize the privilege of biracial and multiracial people by identifying them as black which they are not.

    There is nothing about these photos that eminates hate. Diana Ross is blessed with good health and happiness in her elder years and two sons who are committed to their families and raise their beautiful children. She has beautiful grandchildren because they are happy and healthy grandchildren. Nothing hateful about that.

    Self hate is when black people shoot each other, tear each other down, and 70% black fathers abandon children, that is self hate.

  • QueenSuga

    ???

  • the guest

    They are not black Americans getting lighter. They are not black Americans. They are their own race, biracials and multiracial, not light skinned blacks.

  • the guest

    If black people cared about black wealth and empowerment then black people wouldn't sabotage and tear each other down. White supremacy in and since slavery could never have succeeded without the complicity and aggressive assistance of black people to destroy black people.

  • the guest

    Name and Wealth come from their white father.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I do not label half breeds as black! Having a black parent doesn't make you black. ONLY BLACK PEOPLE PRACTICE THIS BULLSHIT! I AM NOT DILUTING MYSELF SO IGNORANT PEOPLE AND CONFUSED HALF BREEDS CAN HAVE A GROUP TO BELONG TOO! I AM NOT CONTRIBUTING TO THE ERASER OF THE BLACK RACE. If we keep this crap up half breeds will become the NEW BLACK RACE! HELL NO! NOT ON MY WATCH!

  • the guest

    There's the issue of control here. This man chose a critically dependent woman regardless of her race because he likes control.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I'M TIRED OF SEEING HALF BREEDS REPLACING FULLY BLACK PEOPLE IN THE MEDIA! FOH! YOU THINK I CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE? The one drop rule is racist and was used by white so they wouldn't have to claim their bastard mutt children. The black race isn't a dumping ground for confused mutts with no where to go that no one else wants to claim!

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    And that's also a common reason why BM get with WW. They often feel BW are too aggressive but there are exceptions. There are controlling spouses on this show but on camera, this guy appeared timid.

  • Jamal Warner

    First, race is a social construct, which mean it is defined by society. Everyone in this country has a mix cultural DNA. When a child is born from parents of different racial makeup, the societal rule is that if you are a certain tone you are black. So Barack Obama had a white mother, but he is still regarded as a black president.

    Secondly, I see your post about black father abandoning their children, which is factually false. You sound like you are the one self-hating. You are pointing to a symptom of a problem and not the root. Black fathers are absent because of white supremacy, which greatly impacted black communities. There is no sense in even mentioning symptoms of a problem if you will not speak of the root cause of a problem, which is systemic racism. It is the reason for the absent father.

  • macko

    It was an all dress-white wedding. Everyone wore white, except the men and a few women like Jessica Simpson. Look at the wedding group pics.

  • macko

    Well Diana Ross' sons Black wealth and empowerment, comes from their Norwegian father.

  • macko

    Look in the mirror...got your hate right their. Run your own life, leave other peoples alone.

  • macko

    And they still found someone to love. And you???

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    STFU! Hate my ass! I love what I see in the mirror and my children and husband will reflect that. I will not be giving birth to genetically inferior mutts!

  • macko

    Too late. Your inferior intellect and heart is genetic.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I have melanin which is worth more than gosweet heart . So I could never ever be inferior. You neanderthal loving bastard.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    He's 29 with dirty teeth, gray hair and crows feet! WTF! He looks older than 29, like 30 something.

  • Disqus_year4016

    To tell u the truth u right. The question is why whites don't consider mulatto kids white? Not all mulatto kids take after they black parent. I guess white people ain't gonna consider mixed kids white because they not going to dilute they perfect whites genes so y dilute the black genes?

  • Disqus_year4016

    Oj Simpson have two black grown kids that they don't show. 50 cent have a couple of black kids and lil Wayne.chris brown? Not sure if he's black.

  • Disqus_year4016

    Diana Ross family is whitener and watered down like the jacksons.

  • the guest

    I stand by my comment.

    There is nothing reflecting self hate in acknowledging a beautiful family celebrating a marriage. There is nothing reflecting self hatred in a beautiful family at a family wedding celebrating a marriage.

    As far as President Barak Obama, he is not black. He is biracial. He is also biracial raised by his white family. He only identified as black and dated/married black after college to appease the black voter's romantic vision of a person with tan skin in the White House thereby to serve his political ambitions. President Barak Obama racial and cultural strategist but he not black. He unequivocally biracial. These are facts.

    70% black men abandoning children is the character, conscious choice, and accountability of 70% black men to wake up each and every day and choose to not acknowledge the very existence of their children. The pandemic of paternal black child abandonment reflects the character, conscious choice, and accountability of the very real statistic of 70% black absent fathers.

    Diana Ross is a successful and wealthy black woman who gave birth to two biracial sons in marriage and raised her two biracial sons into biracial men who CHOOSE to be committed to their families and raise their children. This reflects Ms. Ross' success as a mother and her sons' character, responsibility, and accountability.

    Race is indeed a social construct black people are obsessed with and are aggressively insistent on imposing black label and black identity on biracial and multiracial people whom regardless of their skin color are not black. The one drop rule is a complete falsehood created by desperate slavemasters territorial over white identity and privilege. Black people grip onto and impose the one drop rule because they resent and want to minimize social privilege and access of biracial and multiracial people. Biracial and multiracial people before, during, and after slavery regardless of their color were not/are not black and skin color does not negate white parentage.

    Black Americans with two black American parents--and without direct, traceable, or verifiable Caribbean, Native American, Asian, European, or white lineage--wear the label and carry the banner of African American alone and since black people profess African American to be a label and indenting of pride then there should be no issue with their exclusive ownership of the label, identity, and plight.

    Congratulations to Ms. Ross and her expanding beautiful family.

    Black Fathers Aren’t Involved In Their Children’s Lives
    Recent data published by the Center for Disease Control reveal that African-American fathers spend more time in their children’s day-to-day lives than dads from other racial groups, defying stereotypes about black fatherhood. The Pew Research Center has found similar evidence that black dads don’t differ from white dads in any significant way, and that there isn’t the expected disparity found in so many other reports. Although black fathers are more likely to live in separate households, Pew estimates that 67 percent of black dads who don’t live with their kids see them at least once a month, compared to 59 percent of white dads and just 32 percent of Hispanic dads.

  • Mark mcharm

    4. Black fathers are not fueling out of wedlock births on their own.

    There has long been the notion — made popular by the Moynihan Report — that black fathers are having children out of wedlock more than men of any other race. However while that may have been the case in 1965, today much of the 41% of mothers that are giving birth are white. In fact, a 2012 CDC report found that there are 4 million more white children living in single parent homes than there are black children in America.

    Indeed, the "crisis" of out-of-wedlock birth seems to only be a problem for black parents when the actual number of children, not percentage, are white. The unmarried black father has been blamed for the causes of poverty, youth crime and drug use, but the actual numbers tell a very different story.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Diana STILL has her shape. Even if she has has plastic surgery, you still have to do the maintenance.

    Aging gracefully.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I don't think Diana has self hate. I think because she came from the Projects she never wanted to go back, so she married well and decided to marry white well. Wealthy. Not rich.

    All this talk about race is funny. Yes, it's unfortunate that black folks be trying to white... But hey society will do that to some folks... If society doesn't weigh in on them then for sure having conversations with black folks will lol....

    Seriously though... I really be shaking my head at the comments black folks make in regards to more serious topics.

  • Itzgoingdown

    I was talking about her.

    Are you saying it's not hard to find one to marry or just phvck buddies. Big difference. It depends on the woman. If the black woman's average to above average looking, friendly, can speak without every word in ebonics, not obese and not a hoodrat she can. But then again that type of woman can also get a black man.

  • Miami8981

    The point is this is why you see 7 year olds still sucking pacifiers and still being pushed in a stroller. I've seen children big enough that they look like they could drive a damn car still being pushed in a stroller or sucking on a pacifier. Lazy complacent parents.

  • Mark mcharm

    you do not live in nyc she went on" live at five" in the 80s and stated "she does not see color" equating she is not black. you might find it on youtube and gene simmons the biggest racist on the planet who she dated said she said she was not black as well. if i can find it i will post it.

  • SuggaB

    True.

  • lovelygamour

    The trend for rich guys over the last few years is to demand the woman get pregnant before he will marry her. Now I see they wait to see how the child looks/acts in order to get married. I would feel bad about being auditioned. 
    exagare-also you can tell when a guy wants a woman because they are white. Both ross's daughter in law look ugly and especially ashley skanky but their faces are classical white. Just like those asian guys? they will date an ugly white woman for years because she is classical white.

    The one drop rule was created by white slavemasters NOT because they didn't want to acknowledge their mulatto children because they did acknowledge them but they created the one drop rule BECAUSE they wanted to minimize their privilege and further distribution of wealth.

    The same reason black people insist on promoting the slavemasters theory of one drop rule and insisting that biracials and multiracials identify as black when they are not. Because black people resent their privilege and think they are leveling the playing field by forcing a black identity on people with white parentage, not lineage or heritage, parentage.

    I would never promote a theory created by slavemasters.

    No one should define themselves according to a theory created by slavemasters. The one drop rule is a utter and complete fallacy.

    Barak Obama is not black. He is biracial of a white upbringing. He is a racial and social strategist and realized as an adult that identifying as and dating and marrying black served his political ambitions.

    Either Barry Gordy or being raised in the Projects of DETROIT have phucked Diana Ross idenity up. Her only child of African American decent from Barry Gordy; named Rhonda. All of her other children are by white men. No, it's not saying she should only be with Black men BUT in 30 years her LEGACY will be WHITE just like MICHAEL JACKSON. #WhiteSupremacy #WillieLynchLetter

  • the guest

    Totally.

    You've got me so pegged.

    Your suggested analogy reflects grave ignorance.

    Self hatred is reflected in your hateful dialogue, not in positive, articulate, and consciousness evoking dialogue which I have presented with the understanding that all on the forum are free to harmoniously agree to disagree without insult and denegration.

  • sunni_daze

    Well he won't have any blak in him, hell he don't have none now. Half black procreating with full white is 1/4 black now.

  • the guest

    The study you present is hopeful, yet it does not negate the reality of 70% black fathers abandon their children.

    Seeing a child once per month is abandonment.

    Paying child support and rarely seeing a child is abandonment.

    It is a disservice to black fathers to set the bar so low for what is not abandonment.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I am black so there for I AM SUPERIOR! Science and history proves that's you neanderthal! BYE ESAU! You think a monkey like yourself can put me down? LIES!

  • the guest

    The root of the problem is poor character, irresponsibility, sociopathic level of apathy, disinterest, and a conscious day to day CHOICE to abandon children. And the 70% black fathers who abandon children are solely accountable for their CHOICE.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Are you mad because your genetically recessive neanderthal ass ages like an avocado?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Him and his brother .

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I'm tired of these neanderthals trying to put us down. Black people are the salt of the earth. I've done enough research to know that I am not the inferior one here.

  • the guest

    I'm not in agreement with your vitriol. However, you are correct that biracial and multiracial people are not black.

  • the guest

    Biracials and Multiracials are new races, not new black races.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Tell that to the media that uses them to represent fully black people.

  • macko

    You should take a remedial course in genetics, sociology, geography and psychology(if you ever had any foundation to begin with). For the rest see a therapist.

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    Still it's none of your business what other parents do with their kids

  • Jamal Warner

    First, it is not 70% of black fathers abandon their children. The 70% is black children born without their parents being married. It does not represent fathers who walked away from their responsibilities. When you frame it in that manner it reinforces the myth of the "no good black man". The reality is that marriage as a total number is down across the board. The figure neglect so much when presented alone as you did. Most people who mention it only it does so to reflect poorly on the black race and black fathers.

    The black family has been under attack and still is to this day. Due to systemic racism, the black father was removed from the household. Let's focus on the root of the issue. Let's not demonize the black father, but neglect to address the issue of leaving. It is not poor character or any that you mentioned. It is because of a racist system that cannibalize the black family.

  • Liah

    I say congratulations....I dont care who you LOVE as long as your loved correctly....I have issues with folks that hurt my people....You can be purple and If you hurt "my people" we got an issue...You show me love...I show you love....Simple as that...If I discriminated against ANY race...That would make me no better than the people who discriminate against ME!

    So I say ...I wish them love and blessings:)!

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Some of what you said , has kernals of truth, I will say that.BUT these boys will be veiwed as black men, regardless of them being mixed, and treated as such. Those are society rules, they seem to be fighting that perception, in an obvious pattern.

    The whole family MOM on down are retreating from their African root. Lets face it, they come from Black roots. I agree that this family will no longer look like their ROOTS in the future and will be quite elated about it.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    In this society you have choices.As a mixed man, he chose BLACK.

    Lol, good description

  • Harley

    too bad he did not pass it down to a black child and black family. our community needs it

  • Harley

    all races sabotage and tear one another down. Have you read a history book? Do you have latin and asian friends who tear down their race and complain? I do. It is NOT just the black community hun.

    We arent in slave days we are in an age where we can buy black and empower one another

  • Harley

    understood, yet it could have still been passed down to a black child and black wife :)

  • Harley

    nope they cannot. because they are white washed and their wealth goes to the white wife and child

  • Harley

    unfortunately SHE did! Same with Eartha kitt. Her daughter of mixed race married a white man and ALL the grandkids identify as white!

  • Mark mcharm

    Nice try but white males are more than likely to abort or kill the child that is because whites are morally bankrupt . the study negates nothing except you have no clue what you speak of that 70 percent is bs and you know it . white males are not doing the job of taking care of children at a lower rate than every race.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    This thread has erupted into full chaos. I do see a trend tho, in recent years propped up and put on a pedestal and poplularized by celebritydom in Music and Sports that white washing your family is the NEW BLACK, and just maybe answer to being finally being accepted and treated as equal.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    So its a money thing? Got it. Regardless, the kids are half black and why do you care where someone else's money goes? Just curious...

  • Harley

    because I am all about building the black community and keeping the wealth in OUR community. That is where the POWER is.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    And how are YOU helping build the black community?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Everyone of us is free to live the life we want for ourselves. Not what others want for us. Not even our parents, or community.

  • macko

    See my comments before. They still stand.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy
  • Harley

    that's nice and your opinion. I will keep mine. I would like to see some of the BLACK people with wealth keep it in the community.

  • Harley

    I BUY black, my money is in a BLACK bank. I counsel BLACK kids who are victims of molestation and rape. I volunteer at an orphanage with predominately black kids. Shall I go on?

  • Harley

    What is your "curious" self doing?

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    I do a lot. I can type a bunch of stuff but that's not proof right? So you only care about blacks and the black community? Not just people in general?

  • The Love Below

    And when black women open up their legs to thugs, to get these 70% out of wedlock babys. Don't blame it all on black men.

  • The Love Below

    Stop picking thugs and bums, and then blaming black men.

  • The Love Below

    Black women like thugs and bums. They are the ones they let impregnate them. They do not like the decent good men of their race in America.

  • the guest

    I think Kanye made Kim prove her love through pregnancy before marrying her. She had to earn his trust through weight gain and birth.

  • the guest

    Thugs and Bums do not have a trademark on child abandonment. Educated, professional, employed, middle class, upper class, working class, poor brothers comprise that 70%.

    Irresponsibility, selfishness, apathy, sociopathy in disregarding children is not limited to the black men from the hood.

  • the guest

    Go to any inner city all black school with student enrollment over 500 and survey the students about family and household composition. In fact survey 25 schools.

    Then talk about 70% child abandonment being an illusion.

  • the guest

    I agree that is misleading.

  • Jamal Warner

    I do not agree with your comment.

    I take from your post that you did not read or you did not comprehend my post. As for Barack Obama, he is in fact considered black by our society. Race is a social construct that is simply a label society places on skin tone. Every person in this country has mixed DNA from various cultures. Barack Obama is no exception. It is not what he is genetically, but what the dominant society accept him, which is a black person. All of us are Homo Sapien, which is just human.

    You are not using the “70%” figure correctly. The correct figure is that 70% of black children are born to parents that are not married. It does not mean that black fathers walk away from their responsibilities as fathers. It means that their parents were not married when they were born. It neglects so many other things, but you use it to demonize black people collectively. People are not getting married as their once were in the last few decades. Marriage has been declining significantly due to many factors. It does not mean that black fathers are bad or any father is bad because they do not marry the person they choose to procreate a child. It just mean they are not married. It does not mean black men are bad, but you use this figure to present such a false narrative.

    You are praising Diana Ross, yet neglecting to mention how the white fathers of her children are not married to her. How is that any better than the false notion you are presenting about black fathers. It speaks volumes to what culture is the one being demonize on this post. She has never been married too long, but you will overlook that to present a narrative of how the black father is the issue. Go figure!!!

    No, black people are not the one who label individuals as certain race. That falls squarely on people from the dominant society. Once again you are presenting a false narrative. In this society, race is based on how the dominant society, which is white, decides ones race. The issue of race falls solely on the dominant society. The 1% rule was not created by black people nor enforced by black people. In fact, it is the result of social construct based on a white hierarchy in which white society valued light tone Africans than dark Africans. The result was a mindset that lighter skin is valuable, which black people, being subjects of white supremacy, had to accept in order to survive. I am starting to think that you are not black by your suspected white supremacy talking points. Especially, since you are blaming black people for the ills of this society.

    African people have been label a new name nearly every decades. Most of it is not even on their own behalf. It is from the dominant society. The way you present it makes it seem it is less than how any other group is labeled. The issue is that a system of white supremacy is practice in this country and ensures that anyone that is not label white is mistreated. Diana Ross is probably encouraging her children to date and marry white because she views it as better. Nothing against dating outside of ones own race, but it is not a coincidence that all people in this family marry white people. You sound like you are either white or encourage this based on race. Your post sounds as if you want to present whiteness as superior to other races, which is not true at all.

    I don't understand why blacks think that a BIRACIAL person is betraying "their" race if that person has a white partner. If a BIRACIAL person chooses to be with a black or white partner, that BIRACIAL person chooses their own people - black AND white.

    I am biracial. My Mom is black. If I choose to be with a guy who looks like my Pops - guess what? It is what I KNOW... what I am used to.. there is no betrayal to my black side of the family because I am an amalgam of both races.

  • Harley

    JUST because someone cares about the advancement of their people does not mean I am heartless. No one questions Chinatown or koreatown or little Italy. So why is it different when black people unite and create wealth in their community?

    Which is why the black community is lacking and Chinatown and little Italy and the likes are thriving!

    Cuz even when an asian or hindi marries a white which sometimes they do, they're not criticized for it like blacks are...

  • Detroit Lives

    She did this to herself willingly. None of the other Supremes from Detroit and from the projects set out to marry white men. From the pictures I've seen of this wedding Diana, her daughter Rhonda and Rhonda's son were the only Black people there. Everyone was white!

  • Detroit Lives

    He was not a billionaire. I don't understand why people continue to spread that lie. Arne Naess had a net worth of $ 120 million which is a nice sum of money but far, far from being a billionaire.

  • Detroit Lives

    It is really sad when you think about her growing up in Detroit's "Black Bottom" poor and living in the projects. White people didn't do a damned thing to help her or her family back then. It was a black man with a black record company, along with her two black girlfriends (Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard) from the housing projects that made her famous. She let one of those black girlfriends die on welfare. Now all these years later she will be willing her money right back into the hands of white people. Michael Jackson did something similiar for a poor little black boy that grew up hard in Gary, Indiana. Sad.......

  • Detroit Lives

    I don't even understand what you just posted.

  • Detroit Lives

    So selling out to white people is worth it in your opinion? I'm just asking. Neither Diana or Tina needed to do that. They had their own money that they worked hard to earn.

  • Detroit Lives

    Yes she did say that and I was floored! Her sisters and brothers are black. I met the younger sister in Detroit and the older one, the surgeon lived just down the road from me in New York.

  • Detroit Lives

    Read the book "Call Her Miss Ross" she flat out says that she is not a black woman when she was approached by a cosmetics firm to have her do an ad campaign for them.

  • Detroit Lives

    Exactly and I saw that show! She also said the same thing during an ABC 20/20 interview in 1980 and it is up on Youtube.

  • Detroit Lives

    In 1980 on ABC's 20/20 show and again later on on Live at 5 a local New York City show.

  • Detroit Lives

    Read above where I give you the show she said it on. ABC's 20/20 in 1980 it is on Youtube.

  • Detroit Lives

    Why is what I want to know. She was once considered a black icon along with Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard the Supremes in the 60s. Now it seems she's turned her back on her African American Heritage. She's never done anything for her hometown Detroit.

  • Detroit Lives

    When he sees a picture of his black grandma, Diana Ross before she started bleaching her skin he is going to be shocked!

  • Detroit Lives

    That is bulls**t! I am from Detroit and I know that is not the reason why she only dated and married white men once she became famous. She knows that it was a black man and a black company that made her famous. No white man ever helped her or her family in Detroit. She is full of self -hate and low self esteem when it comes to white people. Strange for a person that has an ego the size of a football field! She will have nothing to do with Mary Wilson the other "black Supreme" because Mary reminds her too much of where she came from.

  • Detroit Lives

    You are speaking the truth!

  • Detroit Lives

    President Barack Obama is black! His father was African, from Kenya. Diane's son's father was from Norway. You are what your father is or was! Oh and that comment about blacks who believe in the one drop rule? You better do your research and learn your history. It was not blacks who made up that "rule"...... check it out!

  • Detroit Lives

    Did you know that Diana Ross' daughter also married a white man just a year or two ago? It seems like all of her kids except one prefers having a white partner.

  • Detroit Lives

    That's not true. If I shot you, is not because I hate myself. It would most likely be because you did something to me or something I did not like. Trying to bleach your skin to whiten it and only marrying and associating with white people as a black person is self hate. It is like you are ashamed of being black.

  • Detroit Lives

    I am black and Barak Obama looks just like one of my uncles and very much like my nephew and we all had two black parents!

  • Detroit Lives

    I saw a picture of the entire wedding party and there were no black people in the picture other than Rhonda Ross and her son. There had to be close to 60 people in the picture.

  • Harley

    That is because most DO marry within their race. And "some" Asians are white washed which is sad and encourage it.

    And blacks are different than "other" minorities. Systematic racism hits us harder. Other races can white pass. They did not endure the slavery and Jim Crow laws we did here which separated and destroyed the black nucleus. That's why!

    Asians and Indians HAVE their own communities, schools, banks and grocery stores so there is nothing to "complain" about

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    This was about you that's why, the whole comment section was about WHY you care about ppl YOU don't know marrying who THEY WANT.

  • Guess Who

    HELL NO. But if you are gonna be a confused bed wench....get all you can.

  • Guess Who

    Not at all...but what makes you think they had their own money prior to white men? Diana was Barry's concubine...but it's a known fact he didn't pay ANY of his artist, with the exception of Smoky R and Stevie Wonder (and he had to sue to get his money). Yeah, she had top billing and all that but I doubt he was breaking her off the way the white have.

    Tina was Ike's punching bag and he left her with SQUAT and she didn't want ANY money from him. BOTH of those broads became bed wenches in order to come up. NEITHER was rich prior to it.

  • Harley

    Naw hunny the comment section was full of other dialogue. YOU are the one questioning why I feel the way I feel. Again I am for the progression of my people at this point in time. If you feel another way that's your business. I feel the way I feel . Asians, Latins, Indians HAVE their own. We are still trying to not get killed by police and fight for basic rights as blacks.

    Diana Ross's kids are biracial withe the exception of Rhonda. They have chosen to marry white because that is the world they have grown up in and it's been encouraged. Sidney Poitier's biracial daughters gave done the same thing. Accept it or not, it does involve some self hate. We were raised to believe that it is an honor to have progeny that looks like us and to be extremely proud of our African American ancestry. Her children's phenotype is African American and that is how the world views them. Everyone is entitled to marrry whoever they like. Their spouses and their children are just average looking, not really attractive at all. But it's their lives. Just hope they didn't marry them for their money.
