I just wanted you all to know that. I see so many people giving credit to only his black side which is so discriminatory to all the people that cherish and adore him, not to mention to Jimi himself.

So many people think he is a black man when he was actually Caucasian, Cherokee, and Black.

Its important to keep your facts straight. ;)

Hendrix loved the Miss ( white women) of the world big time.

So if he was biracial, he was just doing his thing then.

When the world sees Jimi Hendrix, they see a Black man. When you see him, you see a Black man. That's why you're trying to attatch his talent, & gifting to something other than what he essentially was. Stop trying to sift, and disassociate this man from his Blackness!! After all, he can be great, and Black at the same time; contrary to what you think!!!!

Yahkhov, Hendrix wasn't pro-black with preferring white women over black women.

If he was biracial, then it is what it is.

Well supposedly all Blacks have different races within' their family tree, so I don't understand why you feel we should acknowledge his full ancestry while others are simply labeled black. As far as I'm concerned, the man black like all blacks in America.

You racist will find anything to argue about. No one is about to sit here and argue if Jimi was a BM. You people are nuts.

I already know that Hendrix was black.

He just like other black men preferred white women over their black women.

The fact still remains that he is NOT black. That one drop rule was written a long time ago by people long dead in a long gone racist era.

You all do know it is not a real rule!

Jimi was multiracial. he was comprised of three spepeartye and distinct races. Why should multiracial people have to feel that it is somehow bad to claim what they really are? There is no need for Jimi to be ashamed that he was part Caucasian and part Cherokee Indian.

So this means you are not white then? In fact there is no such thing as race. Everyone is multiracial according to you.

First - there is no IF about it.
Second - bi-racial means a person is comprised of two races.
Third - He was multiracial.
Last - People should celebrate their diversity not feel they have to hide who they really are. It was racist of white people to do it in the past and it is racist of black people to do it in the present.

Jimi was a historical MULTIRACIAL guitarist.

End of Story.

Why is it that when ever a black individual is gifted his other racial extractions are suddenly brought to the forefront. Theres nothing wrong with being multiracial but he wasnt treated as such. His native american heritage was subject matter for alot of his songs and he was inducted into the natuve american hall of fame
