yes, for the majority of them, since the majority of them do look white but not all of them.

DO YOU SEE THE PATERN, THEY LOOK WHITE AND MOST CONSITER THEMSELVES WHITE IN THE END OF THE DAY

so those are examples, that doesn't mean all are considered white but majority are, I base on looks. So once you are 1/4 black, as far as I'm concerned majority of the time you are white.

P.S. why people say quadroon when that word isn't used any more baffles me

Funny how they come out looking unattractive. I guess mixed is only really good when it's 50/50.

I knew his wife was white, but thats ridiculous. I'm going to have Google his family. His son looks more white than his mother.

do you even have to ask, majority of quadroons look white, so what do you expect a octoroon be consitered, which has less black percentage then quadroons themselves.

Famous french novelist Alexandre Dumas was a quadroon but considered himself " a negro with kinky hair and a slight creole accent" in most pictures he actually looked white maybe on this one:

At the time he experienced prejudice maybe today he would be considred white, it depends on each person's perception I guess.

Very interesting topic? I often wonder what Barak Obama's grandkids would look like after his daughters go to Havard and marry a guy who looks like Ben Affleck in a turtleneck?

I've been told the issue of being "black" is political/lineage/kinship related and not racial. It's accepting a shared heritage in your ancestors overcoming slavery and oppression.

This is very true. If you looked like you had any black in you you were black. This standard lasted for 500 years and for the most part is still how the AA is defined. But I know there are some biracials and others who are trying to change that in our new "color blind" society.

well im 50/50 i personally dont want quadroon kids so hopefully i wouldnt find out what they will look like. i prefer to have my child with a 50/50 mixed person or maybe a black light skinned. im not attracted to monoracial white or black people very much just preference.

yes I consider them white, I feel what you look like outside is how you are treated and act socially. I remember I knew one quadroon female from high school, this girl never hanged out with black or hispanic kids or knew about her black american culture, she only hanged out with white females, but any time she wanted to be cool with the black or hispanic kids she would mention that her father is biracial and mother is white, saying she had black in her. You know what happen, none of the black kids cared that she had 1/4 black in her because the girl looked like Demi Moore, she never cared to be part of the black culture, and etc. She cared and looked like a typical white girl. her appearance contributed to how she acted and how she was perceived. To me I saw a white girl, she never bothered me or anything, but I felt she was a white girl and should accept that and not claim something that she is not a part of or look like. So I feel once you are 1/4 black and the rest is white in you, your white, and most quadroons look white any way, only a few be looking unique.

Not really. It's the same question if Keanu Reeves is white, or Nicole Scherzinger, etc. lol They are mixed!! Or we can say even like this in America. Anyone looking Caucasian is considered 'white', even if Mulatto & vice versa.
