Kelly Rowland is praising September's U.S. Vogue cover featuring fellow Destiny's Child member Beyonce for helping to show young girls of color they are beautiful too.

Beyonce, 36, is the first woman of color to grace the cover of the fashion magazine's iconic September issue.

The "Lemonade" hitmaker was born Beyoncé Giselle Knowles in Houston, Texas, to Mathew Knowles, who is Black, and Celestine "Tina" Knowles, who is mixed race (Black, Native American Indian, and French).

Kelly, left, is pictured in concert with fellow D.C. members Michelle Williams, center, and Beyonce, right, in Las Vegas in 2015.

Kelly Rowland, who is Black, carefully avoided describing Beyonce as Black in an interview with ET! She praised the significance of Beyonce's appearance as the first "woman of color" to be featured on the cover of U.S. Vogue.

"I remember looking at a Vogue magazine cover and I saw three beautiful white women on the cover and it said, 'This is what beauty looks like.' If I'm not that color how am I supposed to know what beauty looks like?" Kelly told ET. "So when we see women of color on magazine covers, (it shows) this is what beauty is like. We are what beauty is."

Kelly added: "I'm extremely excited for young girls of color to see that and understand and know that (they) are beautiful.”

Beyonce's cover was a collaboration between the star and Vogue boss Anna Wintour, with the mother-of-three reportedly given the final word on everything from her stylists to her makeup, which consisted of only 3 products.

    Duh. So is every black woman I've ever met. ("I got Indian in my family") Many of em can even tell you the tribe name(s), lmao.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She used the phrase, "women of color" because it's more inclusive. Instead of just saying, "black women". Although, I am technically a woman of color, I prefer to be referred to as a black woman. Less ambiguity.

  • Ni Ni

    I wish they stop with this woman of color crap.

  • Dasright

    Lol! My grandma insisted we were Cherokee because of her grandmothers "long jet black hair, redskin, and high cheek bones (her exact words). Ancestry test showed NO Native American but she was 20% Scandinavian and 60% Nigerian ??

  • Shawty

    We all are a color. Even white is a crayon. We all fit somewhere in the color spectrum. All different color crayons are in the box together. With that being said, let's be like crayons and become united. (Don't tell me, I know I'm looking thru my rose colored glasses right now...lol)

    i see what you did there. LOL.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    "Women of color" is more sensible to all women of any shade instead of mainstreaming and saying black women...honestly I dont see too many black women reading Vogue I see more black men reading it but they wear heels to work so...

  • iWasteTime

    When she claimed her Creole ancestry on that commercial folk had a fit. 10 years or so later and she embraces her blackness and now folks want to remind us that she is Creole. Can't win for losing

  • iWasteTime

    Did I call it a race?
    I specifically used the word ancestry, defined as one's family or ethnic descent.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ?? beauty is found within ...I don't need a photo or magazine to tell me that. .. Come on now.. . Evolve folks.... Fugg around trying to be like the chick on the magazine and that same chick doing lines before that same shoot ... Miss me Kelly

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Beyonce is black stop trying to be everything but your true self

  • MissHarlem

    Idc I am still laughing at white tears from LeBron post on praising women of color ? when I tell you they was saltyyyyyy....understatement.

    On topic it is VERY IMPORTANT to see us represented regardless if it's a magazine cover we don't read down to us in Congress. Let's not act stupid and play like representation doesn't matter. Especially with our impressionable youth.

  • xenaD

    She’s black! Did I miss something?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Why? How you can look at Beyonce or Tameka "Tiny" Harris and see Black women? Tameka's DNA says she's is biracial. DNA doesn't lie. Should we dismiss Dianne's contribution to Tameka's DNA? Or is Dianne Black too?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Ion know SMH

  • Joy King

    Sandra love throwing out that mixed race term to get the people riled up. But umm Kelly and any other black woman who does it, please stop looking for white folks to define your beauty. Yes, beauty comes in all shades and races but I've always been immediately drawn to black beauty.

  • Music

    Lord...Lately, these Beyonce articles have been unnecessary. It’s crazy how much effort goes into trying to bash someone. Especially, when that person minds their own business.

  • Bella Boss

    Howling........

    “Less ambiguity.”

    That part! I want folks to know how I’m rocking straight up LOL. I’m BLACK YALL!

  • Coy little wink

    Kelly sounds super dumb...I never looked at magazines to tell me what beauty looks like...beauty to me was always my mother and other women in real life...certainly never a white woman on a magazine. Education starts in the home...

    and nobody I know (of color) even reads vogue ? we see that crap at checkout and keep right on moving

  • hi-liter

    People only think those with light skin complexions are mixed race. Truth is, were ALL mixed with something.

  • hi-liter

    Well, it was the "founding fathers"....men who look much like the POTUS you praise at every turn....wasn't it those men who decided 1 drop of nigga makes you a WHOLE nigga?

  • Coy little wink

    Its stupid dumb ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    So, to dispute the ancestry tests...
    Many BLACK and DARK skinned aboriginals were already here pre Columbus. Many “explorers” made note of this fact.

    IMO the ancestry tests are still off because, what group are they testing to prove this? Many native Americans have lots of admixture as well, so if they’re dna is being used, the test can be misleading.

    So Grams could be right. Listen to the old people, they know a lot of things LOL. My grandfather always told us we were Chahta (Louisiana/Mississippi Delta Choctaw). We are now finding out this is true.

    HOWEVER, I realize some want to be anything other than black, but for those who are truly interested in their ancestry I encourage them to look this up.

    White folks subjugated us, removed our ancestry, then sell it back to us. That’s quite cruel.

    Also, it is worth noting that census takers would routinely make chit up. For instance, one census a relative of mine was considered Indian. The next census, the same relative is Negro.

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Sandra loves dishing Beyonce .....

  • Stationarity

    I was thinking the exact same thing as you. Mine didn’t show ANY NATIVE AMERICAN either.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Just pointless and never ending.

  • Coy little wink

    They both look black to me. Are we talking skin tone or origin? Therein lies the ambiguity. You are referring to their looks...not a DNA result. Won't most people's DNA reveal they are multiracial?

  • Renee26

    Women of color girls of color... Hmmmm as if it's intentional not to specifically speak on Black girls...the ones who are viewed in the most negative light... I see you Kelly...with your neutral ass

  • Renee26

    Lol

  • Renee26

    And very proud of it

  • the guest

    Women of Color is inclusive. I like it.

    Yes, Beyonce is mixed race, she is Creole. She is not biracial. She is multiracial. Not all Creoles are fair skinned like Tina Knowles or light skinned like Beyonce. Mixed race Creoles can be brown or dark skinned as well. However, I do believe Beyonce identifies herself as black.

  • free

    kelly is f*cking dumb and beyonce is f*cking dumb. the magazine photo shoot is f*cking dumb and the writeup that i've seen so far is dumb. beyonce's maw tina is f*cking dumb too. all this creole sh*t and marster wifed up his slave who is my great grandma sh*t is offensive when you are pushing it for likes. b*tch go do some real research.

    All people may be mixed with something but not through direct parentage. All people are not Creole, Biracial, or Multiracial.

    This is too funny because, I've been getting different mags in the mail. I think somebody signed me up for them. I know I didn't. They just started magically appearing in my mailbox. And all my Vogue ones, I've thrown directly into the recycle bin, with the plastic cover STILL on them......and IDC WHO is on the cover. Now the Ebony ones that come are a different story. LOL

    No it isn’t

  • the guest

    No one should identify themselves by any term or racial policy created by a slavemaster. The one drop rule was not created to group all people with black blood together in the sense of black unity.

    The one drop rule was economical.

    The one drop rule was created by slavemasters to dis-entitle their biracial children from their legal white blood birthright to inheritance.

    By classifying their biracial children as solely black made it illegal for their biracial children to claim their white blood birthright to inherit property.

    Slavemasters were not at all thinking of black unity and they also did not believe that one drop of black blood made someone black. It was actually the opposite.

    They knew their biracial children were not black and that they were entitled to inheritance. So they created a rule to dis-inherit them NOT because of their black blood, but because of the economic greed of slavemasters.

    Less men considered white men meant less economic competition and that's why they created the one drop rule.

    Just because you light skinned don't make you mixed. Beyonce is straight up Black! Stop trying to make her something she is not. When she gets pulled over by the police they see black just like the rest of us...PERIOD!

    I like Beyonce,however I ain stud'n her ret ni.My arguemnt is with Ms.Rowland. Same shidt just a different day. I honestly believe kelly would have been furtha along in her career if she had just focused on herself and herself alone. Kelly has always praised Bey...correct me if I'm wrong,Ive never heard Bey praise Kelly about shidt. It's always Kelly suck'n up to Bey agreeing with Bey. You dont bleeve it. This thread states the obvious. She don't care shidt bout Kellz and less about Michelle

    If you hate Beyonce so much....quit reading the articles and making comments. These articles are a click and bait. If you don't comment, you will see less articles or no articles. Almost, everyone on this blog dislike this chick so why waste your time repeating the same dislike.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Sandra what’s the purpose of this article?

  • Guest©

    I don't thinks it a good idea to start judging ppls race based on appearances. I took after my dad's side (white) but I will never deny my black mom. I told my coworker I was biracial (we were discussing a shooting of an unarmed black man by a cop) and she started a rumor that I was trying to claim black as some political statement. Fast forward to the company picnic where I invited my black and white side of my family. The coworker had egg on her face but I did not try to prove my blackness at any time because I know who I am.

    I wanted to until I realized they keep your dna, and can do what they want with it. Why they need it though?! LOL that’s what’s bugging me.

    If I do, I may try African Ancestry. I believe they narrow it down better than Ancestry. They’ll pinpoint ethnic groups, not just countries and regions.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    ALWAYS! We sometimes forget that current America was founded on just that: economic racism!

  • Miss Thang

    Now we cannot say "black woman" because it excludes the Latinos and Asians. Instead, we have to say "women of color" in order to stay politically correct.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Why all the hype over getting a cover for a "white" publication? There are bigger goals to aim for these days for a "person of color".

  • stav

    French is not a race! Many Native American's were black, and of course there are black French people(by way of their nationality). People kill me that want to make money off of black people, but want to deny who and what they are. At the drop of a dime they're quick to say I'm mixed with this or that...Newsflash there is no one that is pure anything! Beyonce' is nothing more than a lighter skinned black person. If Kelly's interview is accurate, she's pitiful! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/97406e851c27e544db98d3003ed9c29163b252aadefaf11d513385d2e2117dea.jpg

    The genocide of native American people is administrative. "Mark black on the form instead of native& natives no longer exist". The white washing of native Americans is so heavy that ppl literally believe no dark skinned natives exist & every dark skin is African. Until you present tribal receipts, then ur a UFO to blk & white ppl who only expect melanin in America to equal black. But black is a culture different from Native & both should be respected as separate. When white ppl were arresting blacks & asking for tribal identification to prevent arrest/harassment of the Natives it wasn't a color thing. But that loss of history has ppl thinking black & native should be lumped together. People&cultures are not lumps of skin color. Or what was the jews&Germans if not white ppl?

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I've never understood why media makes it like black women are struggling to identify as beautiful? While white women inject, cut, sew & dye their skin to imitate black beauty& imitate black culture. All the black women who formed my ideas of black women never seemed to be struggling with beauty or sexuality. & this was before slutwalking was a way to prove u owned ur sexuality&beauty.

  • Scorpio

    I agree, I've always hated that Kelly didn't value herself as much as she's put Bey on a pedistool. I think her career would have been further as well, but I also think the industry has kept Kelly shut down as well, not wanting to have two highly successful members from Destiny's Child they have backdoor sabotaged her. But yeah her with the Beyonce this and the Beyonce that makes her look empty and not knowing her own self-worth, and she's so beautiful. At one point I wanted her to do well, back when she had Told yall I was gonna bump like this.

  • Toni Toni Toni

  • noireyblanca

    Well when I read articles on white websites in the comments they refer to her as a n* gger soooo Kelly can miss me with that POC bs!
    We are BLACK 1st around here! That vogue article was disturbing. Making it seem as if her kidnapped African ancestor was in a romantic relationship with her slave master. It was rape due to the circumstances alone. The self hate is so real among a lot of these celebrities. You will never see an artist of any other race make statements like this because their racial group will ?? them for it.

I met Niki dolezal when she was unknown & trying to get her hair braided. -_- lol, I asked her if she was at least mixed when I told her I don't braid white hair bc it's too fine. -_- she told me no&I had to look at her, that fine/thin hair &the dark as chocolate ninja that brought her by like idk if she on the run, playing or wut, but I don't have time to play one drop games. lol.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    & when it's a failing white publication with notoriously racist/non-inclusive work for longer than a century I figure it must be a last ditch effort to get that black dollar they missed out on for a century.

    Also, a high yellow mixed race woman is probably considered best for such bs bc it perpetuates the lie that black is a skin color any shade close to brown & not a culture of unique people & lifestyles. & a "tinge of brown" is more palatable vs melanated & urban for anna's kind of prejudice.

    Africans were the 1st brown skinned ppl to explain to me that while they are African, they are not black bc black refers to African American & those ppl (aa) represent a unique culture & history based on their unique journey to this country (usa)& how they have survived here.#respect

    Mixed with something is not mixed race.

  • JustB

    It known fact that most Blacks in America are of mixed races...doesn't change the fact that we are black or perceived to be black soon as the brown tone shows up

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • Yes, I Said That

    I understand where Sandra Rose is coming from with this post. Beyonce current blackness is a new phenomenal. Even Saturday Night Live did an entire skit on white people finally realizing Beyonce was black. I was floored when SNL did that skit, did white people know something we didn't about her parentage or did Bey's intentional actions with her hair, makeup, lighting and her insistence on racial ambiguity in her interviews and commercials throughout her early solo career (pre second Super Bowl era) confuse them. Her image angered many black people that know if your dad is black and your mom is Creole (but that contains black), black people will classify you as black but she insisted she was everything else for years.

    Here's some receipts, In 2008 for Latina magazine Bey stated, "I'm just jealous that I wasn't born Latina. I wish I had been because the culture is so beautiful. I'm very grateful Latinos are embracing me." She was being dragged for looking like a white woman in Indian religious attire in Coldplay's video. She intentionally lightens her photos just see the images for her self titled CD Beyonce it's very prevalent there. For the Loreal commercial, she listed ever other race and had black as last. J Lo could have done the same but she said 100% Puerto Rican. She won a record number of NAACP awards the same week of the infamous Lemonade Grammy's but she didn't attend the NAACP awards although it was in the same town & week just different day as the Grammy's, which told us where Bey's priorities really lay.

    Magazine covers are wholly irrelevant and really only exist to sell ads. No matter what they tell you.

    Sandra posted something about narcissistic supply recently. It was detailed about how ppl feed off mistreating ppl who almost worship them. Kelly seems to fit the supply role. Very intriguing piece

    &Kelly was lacking confidence & marketability from a neutral business point of view . Yet, beyawnc? 'nem was known to rewrite the group's contracts, redefine the position & earnings after the deals were made so Kelly also may have been simply sidelined by beyawnc?

  • HalleMerry

    What?

  • Yes, I Said That

    I think Beyonce's shift from racial ambiguity to black activist developed just like all the other black artists who got major crossover success. Eventually they got royally screwed over by record label executives and they found out that the white audience is highly fickle and will drop you like a hot potato. Beyonce has said herself that her record label has refused to pay for music videos.

    Plus, Bey like so many singers think their past success guarantees them favor with their record labels only to find out that they are only as good as their last astronomically high selling CD plus record labels aren't funding projects like they use to. Everything is Love has tanked, Lemonade is embroiled in a falsifying streaming scandal and lawsuits, OTRII tour not selling out like it should considering the hype, lately black people are demanding more political activism from our entertainers and shockingly Bey is listed at #41 on Billboards All Time Hot 100 Artists List that focused on sales, weeks at number one and amount of hit songs (Destiny Child #85, Jay Z listed at #88 but her peers like Rihanna listed at #10, Drake #21, & Taylor Swift #24). Bey and Jay gotta come back to black but some of us can't forget their intentional disrespect, promoting colorism, all the lies, lawsuits, bullying, and terrible stereotypical lyrics.

    All Black people in America should get their DNA analyzed. It gave me a missing piece of myself, a truth that in some way completes me.

    What I read into the SNL skit, is that White people were shocked that they had actually became caught up in licking an artist that they had made other than black in their heads, that if they were following it, it couldn't be black because many times they see no value in black culture and certainly nothing worth engrossing a part of their life into learning and following. Then suddenly, its like wait she's black, now how did I allow myself to be influenced? How did I let this one get past me? SNL just turned it into a comedy skit on how White culture makes worthwhile what it deems significant.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Exactly! She does wish she was anything but black, but still a woman of color, in my opinion!

    Alicia Keys is biracial, Nicki is Caribbean, as is Rihanna (viewed black, but still differently), and Jennifer Lopez who hasn't had a top ten single or selling one in ages, nor a top film is going strong and is embraced around the world as a Latina Superstar!

    I believe Rachel Roy was one of the Beckys [with the good hair]!

    White people knew she was black, but as someone else said that they don't really consider black movie stars as black people, the same for black music superstars who appeal to white audiences, it's not always skin color, but their perceptions of who are the n---gers!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Right, who they give a pass to or deemed worthwhile, so on the money!

    It's like in the real world, on the job, and you don't have to be light skin, mixed race or a superstar, but their perception of you, how comfortable they feel around you or about you, bottom line!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Beyoncé forget that white people knew she was black or was in denial, but viewed her like they did Whitney Houston (CROSSOVER black female superstar), and others, and gradually, she unraveled her façade to stay relevant, hence, the black militant image, it was trending!

    All while married to an iconic and legendary rapper and business mogul, and former drug dealer!

    Who cheated on her, and tainted their power couple image (Jay-z lost many cool points), so they retreated back to the hood flavor with their latest tour and album, while remaining mainstream!

    So this article is to reinforce to whites that she's NOT really, really black! When she drops her next album, they will take note!

  • ALLMINE?

    Oh god.. here we go.

  • Overpower Radio

    I took ancestry.com. I wouldn't call it bogus, because my grandmother was Irish and Black and it put me down as 10% Irish. It also connected me with a close relative the family didn't know about, which is why I took the test. My eldest cousin on my father's side took the test and it presented a DNA match with a man it said was his first cousin, that the family didn't know about. He was either the child of one of my uncles or my own father (who's deceased), so I took the test.

    Now, like you, I went off of family history on my dad's side, regarding Native American roots. I can recall my Aunt telling the story at family reunions in great detail about what tribe we came from. In our case, science did not agree, and as shocking as it was to everyone, all my Aunt could say is that it was what she was told.....either way, it wasn't true. It also tells a DNA story that traces our DNA coming from West Africa ...and traced it through The Carolinas to New York, which is an absolute fact. All that to say, as a family, especially with it introducing us to a first cousin we didn't know about, none of us would call it bogus.

  • Anunnaki

She didn't confuse her fans, fellow Puerto Ricans and white people of who and what she is unlike Beyonce.

    Beyonce is a black woman period. Why are we still bickering over media portrayal of white beauty vs. black beauty. If you don't see beautiful black woman everywhere then you are legally blind.

  • Cricket404

    Just because she likes a certain hue of her skin tone doesn't mean she doesn't like her blackness. I like my golden/yellow undertone, I will rock a blonde, auburn and red wig, mix 30/4 yaki and lighten and brighten my photos (my current fav is Bazaar filter). All of this is celebrating the variety that my blackness offers. No one mentions that MJB has a beautiful skin tone and rocks blonde hair and it looks great on her.

  • AndSo

    That is actually not true. Most black folks are part WHITE before they are native american.

  • Cowan Cowan

    Both of Beyoncé's parents are black, thus she is black. I'm aware that her mother Tina has multiple races and ethnicities in her family but Beyoncé is black. I too am biracial but I identify as black. Being biracial isn't some kind of "special" status.

  • AndSo

    Beyonce wore WHITE-hair hair pieces and fully accentuated her light skin with blonde fake non-african hair. She has WHITE features now that she has had a nose job to slim her nose. Don't be kidding yourself that she, Whitney Houston, Rhianna, Halle Berry, Mariah Carey, Lena Horne and Jada Pinkett Smith are not viewed as "fully black" because they don't have "black features". They closer to caucasian features in the face. Some by genetics (white ancestors) and some by surgery coupled with fake hair pieces.

  • AndSo

    They looks close to Australian Aborigines. This has nothing to do with being African American.

  • AndSo

    Most light skinned black people are mixed. They have white ancestors. Dark is dominant over light in genetics, so they likely have lots of white ancestors.

  • AndSo

    Tina Knowles and Beyonce do not LOOK 100% black though. It is obvious that they have some strong non-black genetic heritage. Why is that a problem?

  • AndSo

    They do not look 100% black to most people. That is because they are not genetically 100% black and, in fact, likely have a good deal of non-black genetic heritage. They both have a lot of non-black features in the face that they enhance with decidedly non-black hair pieces and that is the truth. No problem with it on my end.

  • AndSo

    Beyonce looks mixed race in the face. She has a lighter skin tone which she has accentuated with decidedly NON-Black hair pieces in decidedly non-black shades (blonde). She has had her nose slimmed as well. She has built an image on looking very, very mixed-race. That's her business, but it doesn't change the fact that she definitely does not look 100% black. At all.

  • Anunnaki

  • AndSo

    Do ya'? 'Cause Beyonce look very mixed. To 95% of folks of every race, nationality and class.

    That's because she is.

  • AndSo

    Maybe you don't have her facial features? Not only does she look mixed in the face, she also had a nose job to slim down her nose into one that is much less "african" in origin. That is a fact and it obviously was her aim.

    Right. Was that Trump Univeristy or something? You do know that Mathew Knowles admitted to Ebony Magazine that he specifically dated Tina because he actually thought that she was white at first? Look it up. You should be good at research by now. He promoted Beyonce because she looked so incredibly mixed-race. Solange look more like Mathew. Beyonce looked mixed-race and they accentuated and promoted that fact from the get-go with her. Blonde wigs, nose slimming surgery and all.

  • AndSo

    LOL. Oh yeah? Illuminate me, then. The NATIVE people of Central and South America (this is BEFORE African Slavery) had dark skin, but they were not Africans. Not by thousands and thousands of years. What YOU talking about, I dunno.

    Oh, I guess that you mistook that person as Beyonce, dear? Yeah, no wonder you think she look different than she does.

  • AndSo

    That because you WANT to see a black woman. And that is fine. But that is not what most people see. Likely because she don't look black to them - she look very, very mixed. Black and white and whatever else. That's what they see. And she herself has promoted that since the beginning of her career.

  • Coy little wink

    You can't speak to what most people see, or what I see. That is perception.

    I too am mixed race. However, I don't use that as some type of status. Anyhow, Beyonce clearly had African American features before she had two to three rhinoplasty surgeries, etc. Google her before and after photos.

    You're not very bright, illuminate yourself !

  • AndSo

    I am also mixed race, and I am going to say upfront that some of us look more african than others because we have african features while others lean more towards looking less african because we have more caucasian or non-african features. Just because you mixed race don't mean that you do or do not look african. Beyonce knew that she could look more mixed (read: LESS african) and she played that up with light hair weaves and including getting nose surgery to move away from african features.

    So blacks only migrated by slavery? You're stupid, too uneducated for this to continue. Your local community college does have history classes...obviously you need to study black history. I'm not getting paid to teach you anything, take my advice!

  • Cricket404

    I don't know her intentions, either way it's not just Africans with wide set noses. Indians and Europeans have nostrils too, many she cut off the Frenchman's nose. Beauty is complicated.

  • AndSo

    What are you saying? That Africans were abundant in Central and South America before the slave trade? LOL. Your "education" is made up. I don't want any of it. Sad for you if you actually paid anyone to teach it to YOU!

  • stav

    So how by your ignorance did it go from being none, to you worrying about how many (very contradictory ), it there were none, why worry about the amount?I never said anything about the abundance,just the fact that they were there!The fact of the matter is you're uneducated as I have initially stated. It's never too late to learn! GN dummy!

  • AndSo

    Oh, so it's "too late" for me to learn, which explains why you refuse to just EXPLAIN your nonsensical stance. You a FOOL and you know it. I certainly know it, too.

    I'm sure Kelly has something in her tree line also!...Dont get it twisted!

  • Ni Ni

    Like i said, they black?.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    That's the non-racist perspective. America was one of those places that became divided by race& the confusion spilled over into color. I've seen some ppl use "afro-latina" to describe themselves when they are dark skinned Cubanos & wondered if the stupidity of racism/colorism had become prevalent in cultures that did not have the same issues of chattel slavery & slave management

  • Goodii2Shoes

    1. Why would someone who knows their culture & ancestry listen to other ppl who always cry about how their cultural heritage & ancestral history was stolen from them & forever lost?

    My family is able to discuss our ancestry & heritage bc it wasn't stolen from us when we were ripped from our homeland. See the difference?

  • Goodii2Shoes

    2. I'll give you a lesson on how to unconfuse urself:

    Black ppl came from Africa On a Boat. See, "Black" it starts with a "B" like Boat. Easy riddle to help u.

    Meanwhile, god spread melanin around the world. European & African slavers sold melanated Africans into chattel slavery where they wound up in this country. A country that bred dark skinned native ppl who are not african, slaves from Africa or required to take on black ppl issues with whites, slavery & racism.

    Black: came over on a boat, mostly as kidnapped enslaved Africans

    Native American : was here b4 white ppl & african slaves, not some white man's property.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Hun, african american & native American is two different people. Cherokee & Choctaw are two different tribes. I can only imagine black ppl felt some kind of hurt seeing dark natives living freely while black ppl were forced into slavery & their cries of "we're all the same color" was the best & only argument they could make to try to reason with Caucasians. It didn't work, stav & it won't work. My nephew knows his true native american history & never has to play race & color games in this society. I equipped him with that intelligence & power as I was designed to by generations of native ancestors who helped clear up the bs centuries ago.

    Put it in ur heart. Seek your own ancestry. Reclaim /learn/understand your own black history.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Ppl only like to mention Pangaea & the notion of melanin being imparted on ppl not from Africa when it is convenient .thankfully, everyone with melanin is not african & knows their ancestral/cultural histories well enough to stop the flood of racist foolishness some black/white ppl would rather society subscribed to.

  • AndSo

    Pangaea was 175 million years ago. Humans were not around then, so I'm not sure why you or anybody would be bringing that up.

    "Thankfully everyone with melanin is not African..." Melanin is in humans to varying degrees around the world, with the highest concentrations being in Africa, India and Australia (aborigines). Yes, there are people with darker skin in South America, and they ain't African in origin, so what?

  • AndSo

    Kind of. But not really. And, honestly, I don't know many black girls who look like either Miss Tina or Beyonce.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    The point was that ppl like to say "we all originated from Africa" rather than stating Pangaea as the landmass that the continents originated from
    & that melanin is not only an African trait.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Hmm... I just heard about 50 million $ lawsuit won by a woman who entered a class action lawsuit against the publishers of some mags. Apparently she received a ton of junk mail & sued the publisher for selling her personal info. Maybe you are one of the unnamed claimants she used to file the class action suit?

    Thank you! Everybody always trying to find an excuse to not be Black. SMH.

  • Dora LaBelle

    Hahaha...I'm hollering! I thought my mother was the only one who said blyke. But yes, Bey is blyke.

  • Ni Ni

    It doesn't matter about looks. Them women are NEGRO.

  • Yoni7

    Word?????!!!!! I need parts!

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Lol. I'm checking too. Junk mail is a social blight

  • Yoni7

    Petty me use to take the time to cut my name and address from all the merged letters. I would then stuff all the cut up papers, shavings and mailings into THEIR "BUSINESS REPLY - postage paid" envelope and mail it RIGHT BACK to them.

  • AndSo

    Oh, is that what I am? Amazing how an "ignorant" person can really get your blood boiling, Trump University Online "lawyer". And I ain't trolling, but I sure am amazed at how some y'all can't deal with the fact that Beyonce purposefully, costumed, poised and marketed herself as mixed race and was therefore seen as such by most people around the world. The only stupid person round here is those who refuse to acknowledge that.

  • AndSo

    Kind of, but not really. And they had the right surgeries and hair pieces to present themselves as being less negro. The majority of black women do not look anything like Beyonce or her mother.

  • Coy little wink
  • AndSo

    Funny that you would pic Rhianna out of all the black female celebrities...lol. Ain't that irony juicy!

  • Coy little wink

    Funnier... you have no clue... the meme joke is on you, you are still in here AND don't know what irony means...

  • AndSo

    I don't? OOOH, you just SO riled up!

    I think I know what irony means here, and she a high yella lady! Very high yella.

  • Battyfish

    Amen you are absolutely right about that---and DNA never lies.

  • Battyfish

    Black American people do have a fascination/romance with being Native American...I don't get it..btw I am Afro-Caribbean and proud of my African roots.

  • http://suzar.com/BOTW/BOTW-ch1d-pages7-8.html Staci Elle

    I get it. Would you rather be light skinned because white people raped your ancestors or because of a loving relationship between a black person and a Native American?

  • Depths Of My Soul!

    Why do y’all do this, who said it they were special? Projecting much?

    She is mixed but identifies as Black and that is ok.

  • Depths Of My Soul!

    Nope, Her White great grand married her Biracial great grand.

    Both of her lineages are online.

  • Liah

    U sound stupid as shit!??

  • Depths Of My Soul!

    Says the dumb bitch who can’t formulate a coherent sentence.?

    Tina Knowles is a Quadroon. Translation for the slow ones in the back .. She is like a quarter Black.
