There's a difference between real African Americans and others who simply have a detectable amount of African ancestry ... you keep on referencing people who are clearly multi or bi - racial ... Halley Berry is mixed ... in Africa she would be considered mixed ... African but mixed ... that's how people see Obama .
But I swear to god , give Halley Berry a decent tan , do something with her hair ... and you'll have a average Rwandese women =)

You Want Facts !!!

FYI ... Africans Americans are predominantly Tropical Africans ... not mixed !!!

According to genome researcher Rick Kittles approximately only 30% or so of blacks carry European Y chromosome signatures---regardless of phenotype. And even that percentage may be too high because Mark Shriver, molecular geneticist, claims that the European admixture--both mtDNA and Y chromosome--in the black U.S. population is just 17%. Kittles also showed that European MtDNA signatures for blacks in the U.S. are approx. 5%.

In places like Haiti and Jamaica--where most blacks in the Central American region reside--the Y signatures are much lower--less than 10%.

E3 is the single most common Y-chromosome haplogroup among people of Supra/Sub-Saharan African descent both inside and outside of Africa. It is observed at frequencies of 58%-60% in African Americans... A and B is also found in some African populations .

FYI ... only ... 19.6 percent of African Americans have at least 25- 20 % percent European ancestry (equivalent of one grandparent);

thank you man...i couldn't have said it better myself....very few of us are mixed...the overexggeration of AA mixture is a urban myth out of control fueled by both ignorance and self hatred...some AAs lie about mixture with whitey cause they feel inferior to whites or just want to feel specia/unique...but most of us know better.
LMAO! You can't stand the fact you're actually MIXED with white devil blood, huh? Oh, I know it! You can deny ALL you like, but we know the TRUTH! So just admit it, or all you look is like a desperate child living in total denial of what you TRULY are: part white devil cracka! LOL!

You're part devil, the devil you say is evil! You poor little thing!

Most "AA's" ARE MIXED! ACCEPT REALITY or SHUT THE MOUTH!

2008

"On average, American Blacks are genetically 80 percent of African ancestry and 20 percent of European ancestry. These findings were part of a recently released study on something known as "gene expression." The research was headed by Alkes L. Price of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts."

Some people here have already seen... but I don't know about putting my family's privacy on the line.

I need to think about it...

It may not be a good idea because we are known in the community :)

Here is one family member, though: http://www.36thdistrictcourt.org/judges-matki...

The point is there are no features found in African-Americans that are not native to Africa...

I really don't understand why Black people in America think so many of them are mixed. This is why MOST of us are not mixed:
1. Some Blacks were free. Many reproduced with other Blacks.
2. A small number of White men, usually rich, had Black slaves.
3. Black slaves DID have children together--lots of them.
4. The White "master" did not rape every woman on his plantation. And not every White "master" raped women.
5. WHo knows how many Black women were actually raped during and after slavery?
6. Who knows how many Black women actually had sex with White men?
7. WHo knows how many WHite women were raped by or had sex with Black men?
8. Today only 10% of Black men marry non-Black women and 5% Black women marry nonBlack men. I am sure no where near 30% of Black men are makng babies with White women and no where near 30% of Black women are making babies with White men. Considering that we are now "free" to reproduce with these people, I am sure we are reproducin with them more now than ever before. Thus, at least probably 70% of Black people are purely Black from this generation. It is probably an even larger number for years past.
WHy is it that Black people tend to hold on to the idea that most of Black Americans are mixed somewhere down the line? EVen if that were true, what is the relevance if that mixture happened more than four generations ago? I personally don't believe the hype: I hold that most African-Americans are NOT mixed.
Do you think its a good idea being mixed? or do you just hate that you might have high African ancestry
Who knows how many little children were raped during slavery.

It is an Afrikaner title that is only derogatory to us...

We may see it as 'bastard'(irrespective of race), but they actually have a division for Black people...

Clearly, we are not!!!
