Charlie Baltimore (African-American / White)
The Philadelphia rapper has always stood out due her exotic look (her mother is Black, her father is German) and now you know why.
Jewish isn't an ethnicity. Anyone from any race can be Jewish, it's a religion. Please change this. Drake would be African-American and White Canadian
Right. Mostly they listed nationalities and not ethnicities. You can be of any race and be German, Mexican, Jamaican, etc.
Dominicans are black so Fabolous is not biracial. He's simply a black man. Dominicans are delusional when someone with dark skin insists they are not black.
Dominican is not a race, and either is GERMAN, Albanian, Trinidadian, Jamaican, Irish, or any other COUNTRY you mentioned. Whoever wrote this article should seriously have SEVERAL SEATS. It's bad enough people try all reasons not to recognize themselves as BLACK, and now you have this garbage to make the dumb even dumber.....good job IDIOTS.
OutHer*****e you're absolutely right they listed nationalities instead of their ethnic backgrounds. Trinidadian's, Puerto Rican's, Dominican's etc all have mixed heritages; they can have Native, African, Spanish, East Indian and other Asian backgrounds and most do. I do not agree with you when you say people are trying to find reasons not to recognize themselves as black. Why is it that someone from a mixed background should only claim their black background? If they have a white mother and a black father then they are...black AND white. I don't see why the black community doesn't recognize that. Any other non-black community does. Asians let you know that they are Korean, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Malaysian etc. and not just "Asian" and the same with Latinos. Why is it acceptable for every other race to recognize their heritage except blacks? And specifically multiracial or biracial and most importantly dark Latinos? Why does everyone give Dominicans such a hard time? They are NOT African Americans or just black. They are black, white, Native, and any mixture between of the three (or more). They do NOT share the same culture or language as African Americans. I can see why they just don't want to be labeled as black. Anyway just my thoughts--I find it strange that blacks can't have any other heritage other than BLACK.
One of the best comments ive read in a long time.....TRUTH
So being Trinidadian is biracial now? Wow
Dominican is an ethnicity its a nationality, fyi majority of Dominicans are black!
Sorry to disappoint MOST african-americans but Dominicans are not mostly black regardless of what u see in NYC which is about 15% lol......they're 73% mestizo 16% white 11% black....only FACTS
Don't tell a New York Dominican their roots came from Africa, they'll try and fight you. lol You're still black Esther!!!
Coming from a Rican/Portuguese sorry to disappoint MOST african-americans but Dominicans are not mostly black regardless of what u see in NYC which is about 15% lol......they're 73% mestizo 16% white 11% black....only FACTS
