Compared to how we originally looked I highly doubt it but it is not surprising how many of us try to claim this.

Erykah Badu's mother is not Nigerian, just another internet rumour, she's completely ethnic ''African American''.

Highly doubt what? Halle Berry looks no different to the numerous 50% African + 50% European women I've come across in life, in fact she looks more African than many I know. Her mum was white yet she could still pass for black, she most likely is over 40% African.

You do know 35% of black descendants in the UK are mixed race including most of my family, believe me I know how many of them look and Halle Berry look more African for one. You have to be ignorant to think she looks 10% African.

Halle Berry? Most likely ''>40% African''. 10% African; I extremely doubt it.

Halle Berry? Most likely ''>40% African''. 10% African; I extremely doubt it.
I would like to prove you are incorrect but I do like proving just like stating my opinion.

Well I am out.

P.S Panma19 out- like always.

As expected. LOL, because you can't. Halle Berry clearly looks more African than anything else. You probably haven't seen much mixed race/biracial people to understand. Heck I even said ''40% African'' which doesn't even mean mostly African yet you find that hard to believe.

Who do you mean?

If it's less than 20% from a continent it shouldn't matter and Halle Berry is clearly over 10% African, don't know how anyone could even try to claim otherwise.

Many mixed people married whites back in the day and disowned their blackness.

i know we're suppose to claim everything black is beautiful, but in most cases i'm not a big fan of the strong tribal or 'african ethnic' look. i think a generic look, like what you see in many aa, is more appealing, imo.

What does this have to do with the fact that Halle Berry still happens to look more Arfican than anything else, surely over 10% African?

Halle does look African when you have Hispanics who resemble Europeans. Some biracials look more or less African such as Mariah Carey but Halle look more African than her. Same as Tia & Tamera. I did NOT know they were mixed. They look like straight up BW with two Black parents.

this girl is a 1st generation american with two west african parents. but unlike other africans and diaspora who might have strong tribal features, her look is very generic. i'm sure most ppl would just assume she was aa.

It has a lot to do with why some of you think she looks more black. If her mother has like a quarter of black blood then Halle is more than 50% black.
