As far as I can see Rihannas skin is completely white. And I'm white myself, so I know what white looks like. Rihanna was even teased in school for being white! If I was standing next to her, I think our skin would look exactly the same! And If I stayed a week in the sun, I'm sure I would be more tanned than her, cause she's really white.Maybe she has a little yellow in it.
She was sittin on the back of her ex-boyfriend Negus Seals on a picture I saw, and they looked like a chessboard together. So come on? Where is her color?

You can see that she has african heritage by her nose and black hair, but not by her skin.
So why do you call her black?

Why don't you ask her why she calls herself a black latina?

Her dad is of Irish descent. So she is not a purebred black, but you people can have her.

What you've described is also accurate concerning the average black in America. So f*cking what does it matter? You people are sick.

Her dAds father was blAck and the same for her mother. Her grandparents were black people and her parents are black so that makes her black.

She is not especially light skinned, but even though she is quite light, she looks black from her facial features. You can get some Asians that have the same colour as white peeople, but they still look Asian.

None of your damn business why. We don't have to explain nothing to you all. You people are some nosey folks. What?! You saw
her picture and thought this will make a good thread. Write her a fan letter if you're really curious and maybe she will tell ya. Nosey!!

Skin color doesn't matter. There are many reasons why she isn't a WW. You can listen to her music & hear she isn't white, Just like Mariah Carey who I knew wasn't white when she 1st came out.

Obviously, Rhianna is not fully "black African", but she is genetically very mixed; probably more so than the average "black" American is mixed.

Rhianna's grandmother is Irish, so her dad is half irish and black. Her mother is black carribean. Rhianna has called herself black several times. Shes 1 quarter Irish.
