  • You posted 3 black women while the rest are mixed. get it together! If your parent is white, it shouldn’t count. where’s Teyonah Parris, Rochelle Aytes, Joy Bryant, Faune A. Chambers and Regina Hall?

      Of course mixed is black it certainly isn’t white. All of these black woman are beautiful except Rosario Dawson who looks like a drag queen.

      • thatguy

        Mixed is mixed!

    • nono

      Bi-racial counts as being an Afro person. However, they should not be used exclusively as the ‘Black quota’ by White people. Or the standard of Black beauty.

      More textured hair needs to be seen. So many African-American girls are natural today. African girls (though they tend to be really self-hating) need more representation to feel more welcomed in this country. Maybe then they will stop hating themselves so much (ie fake hair, blue contacts, skin bleaching, complaining, etc). Basically…Black men need to show they appreciate their dark, kinky counterparts much more. Why is it ok for ya’ll to be dark and kinky but not ok for us?

    • wait what?

      aytes is mixed too though…

    • Captain Obvious

    Paula has a flat az and a strong neck and us beige. These mixed chicks ain’t cutting it. This list is definately a list chosen by white ppl.

  • disdain

    Paula Patton is pathetic. She is a ditz brain twit. She is an insult to a Black woman in her actions and behavior….and she tolerates bullshit from her man like a White girl.My disdain for her aint got nothing to do with her light skin.

  • Truth_Quest30

    Meghan Markle from Suits should be on this list. Also Jessica Lucas.


    There mis no such race as MIXED. Only dogs can be mixed/mongrels.
