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?
Whats all this black/white!!. what about brown?! My skin is a beautiful shade of brown, biege, no. dark biege, no. red brown. phew!! I don't go shouting about it, until now. BROWN POWER!!!

& here the fun continues. ;-) Ya do realize that BRA is the biggest mixed nation in the world, where majority of over 90 million peeps are in UK so-called 'mixed race'? ;-) 90 million is more than all of the Caribbean combined. ;-P In BRA we call 'black' only peeps who are almost literally black & look as if they came from Congo yesterday. We have Afro-BRA peeps lookin' like this even today in BRA. ;-) Compared to 'em Rihanna is a 'pale white' gyal. In the French Caribbean, if Rihanna's one parent was a 'pure' African & the other a 'mulatto', she'd be referred to & seen as a 'capress'. But if she were a 'mixed race' w/ light skin, light (hazel, green, grey, blue) eyes, nappy or curly hair of light brown to blond shades she'd be referred to & seen as a 'chabine'. Just so ya know hot the French CARIBBEAN looks @ the world. ;-P More Xamples to follow. ;-P

- this is that mixed, a dougla, Liberian babe from that link ya saw before --'dougla' basically means 'mixed'


- but guess what, this Ivorian babe is also mixed, only a 'mulatto', since her mother is a light-skinned French woman ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & also this Senegalese babe is mixed, as well a mulatto, since her father is a half Lebanese ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & here ya have another mixed Ivorian mulatto babe on her French mother side whose grandma was a Tuareg woman ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & this Congolese babe is another African dougla who lives in France ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- but this Congolese model babe, who on her mother side is Belgian, is another African mulatto ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & this Ugandan babe singin' is just mixed, w/ part of her parents bein' of Somali & Indian descent ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & now the most interestin' thing for Usonian to understand. ;-) In many African tribes, ethnicities & nations, there's a simple rule which says,'a child belongs to the father'. In other words,'white father, white child','black father, black child'. Just like the old Luo (Nilotic African peeps closely rel8d to Dinka, Shilluk & Nuer) man Xplains. BTW, babe is a mixed Kenyan (Luo), & a mulatto just like Obama ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

All in all, mixed peeps, even if yesterday mixed, come in various shapes & colors. From very (almost white) light, to very (almost black) dark. ;-P Rihanna? Mixed, & (very) light. ;-)

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & this is another multiracial Guyanese babe who's Indian, European & African ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & even this babe is a multiracial Guyanese w/ Indian admixture
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- here's a British singer dude who's mixed Indian, African & Chinese. ;-) & ya can see that 'chabin' type I mentioned before @1:46 (dude w/ glasses). In BRA we call 'em 'sararah' ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

& this would be all when it comes to Anglo Caribbean. ;-D & before I start w/ French Caribbean I'll stop in Spanish Caribbean.

[email protected]:32 a Cuban woman will tell ya how Cubans see peeps & mixtures of diff. colors ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- however in French Caribbean a mulatto babe looks like this
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & a Francophone Guyanese one of many mixed babes would look like this mixed Guyanese babe
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & in general French Caribbean peeps consider themselves 'creole'. Just like this babe here
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & this how my BRA creole peeps look like, dressed in traditional dresses & costumes ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & here are typical 'multiracial' babes w/ strong Bramerindian admixtures from my NE.BRA region ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- but here ya have a BRA mulatto (mixed) famous model babe from my NE.BRA st8 ;-P
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- then another NE.BRA mulatto babe who's of Italian descent on her mother's side
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & BRA also has a big population of Asian descent. Biggest Japanese diaspora in the world, for Xample
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & these two NE.BRA Indian lookin' men are typical dark 'multiracial' peeps in BRA. ;-) & they sing the oldest & original rap in the world, improvisin' instantly
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & here ya have a typical CV creole (mixed) babe ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & finally an Angolan mulatto (mixed) babe
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Rihanna?! Light, & mixed for sure.

- enjoy some typical music from my NE.BRA region. ;-P

Innocent? Where did you get that from? I'm basically telling you I don't care what you think, not surprising that you missed that.
Rihanna is my complexion, it's funny that some of you people see someone like her and think she is the only one. Light skinned people are very common in black America. I find it really funny that you think you have to show me the difference between someone like Rihanna and Alek Wek. Do you think the color differences between black people escapes us? Rihanna is still black, so am I even with my hazel eyes and wavy/curly hair.
Your arrogance is hilarious, you can't tell me anything about being black or having white ancestry and being black. But it's funny that you think you can. GTHOH
& these two links go to that dumb & delusional Usonian ghetto h8in' ho who falsely claimed to have moved her stinky fat azz to Europe & that there are no naturally darker 100% WHITE (SE.)Europeans. ;-D

- like this European politican woman here


- & she's nicely dark tanned for the summer & beaches ;-D

If you see rihanna in a library reading a book and you didn't know her as the singer that she is and she hasn't said one word to you. And all she does is looks at you and then looks back down at her book, what race would you say that she is?

Would you tell your friend that white girl is fine, or that black girl is fine ?

Be real people use your Logic! You can't use common sense because everybody doesn't have that either!! LOL

OK now i know you are crazy any idiot can look at rihanna and see she is black. The only ones who would deny this are those who are attracted to black women and need to psyche themselves out so they can feel bitter about the deep seeded love for black women a fascination that they cant bare to admit not even to themselves. Remind you of anyone well let me help you look in the mirror.
Obviously, ya must be more than an idiot, then. ;-D Nah, only dumbed down Usonian idiots will say Rihanna is 'black' & see her as such. ;-) Like I said previously, I'd like to take all of ya Usonian black wannabe mutts to Africa, when the right moment comes. So that y'all Usonian mutts can see if ya can pass so-called 'test of knife', & eventually not end up slaughtered for not bein''black'. Now that'd be somethin' interestin' indeed. ;-D Anyway, Rihanna is just an average Caribbean mixed light-skinned gyal. For the record, & d8d real charcoal dark, equals real black, Afro-descendant, African & nons babes in my life. ;-P & I really dun get the rest of yo' banana, baby. ;-)

Nah, I'll show ya somethin' real, kiddie. ;-) Ya wanna see blackness?!

- this Afro-BRA sis of mine is almost black, so I'll grant her to be 'black' gladly. But her 'blackness' is only skin deep, like the whiteness of Eurasians & many Asian. She's of another 'race', civilization & culture to yours, which all transl8s in 'Afro-BRA' adjective. ;-P Dun get it twisted. Compared to her Rihanna is white & fugly ;-)

& before ya open yo' dumb Usonian ghetto mouth next time make sure ya learn that there are other FOREIGN & ALIEN societies, cultures & civilizations to yo' Usonian one. Who had a diff. history to yours & who see the world from a diff. angle. ;-)

- pay attention how people are classified on Cuba (Spanish Caribbean), for Xample. The woman @0:32 teaches ya about thin' ya never knew Xist. To her Rihanna is also mixed, light, & not 'black'. ;-D Basically, not much diff. to what I keep typin' down here to y'all Usonian kids who never got outta yo' made in USA hoods & ghettoes ;-)


- & since ya seem a bit dense I'll link one more time this sexy, classy & hawt French Caribbean creole babe who's more African than Rihanna, yet doesn't refer to herself as 'black' in this song. She tells it Xactly like French Caribbean feels & sees things ;-)

Ok your saying that that blacks in america and everywhere else other than Africa are mutts...
Taaaaaam, tah-rah-kah-too, tah-too-tah-too, taaaaaam, tah-rah-kah-too, tah-too-tah-too. ;-) Aaaaww, sorry, got carried away. ;-D Where were we?! Ah, right,'mutts'. ;-) Well, sure most of y'all Usonian Blacks are one alright, but even other Afro-diasporans are as well. Even millions of dark-skinned sub-Saharan Africans today are as well,'mutts'. ;-P There's no unique term to define a 'mutt'. ;-) I'm a mutt too, but of a diff. kind altogether, since I combine '5 races' in me. ;-D However, every society has a comfort zone for various groups. ;-) In BRA comfort zone for darker 'mutts' is 'brown' & 'creole'. In UK the same group is assigned to 'mixed race'. In French Caribbean 'creole' is also group for darker 'mutts'. ;-) In Spanish Caribbean 'creole'(rarely in modern times) or 'mulatto'(unifies various other forgotten designations over the time) is often used for darker mutts. ;-) But let's get back to French Caribbean. In the French Caribbean, like in most of the Latin (Spanish & Portuguese) Caribbean even white mutts had their diff. groups. & so historically & even today they are grouped accordin' to their origin & class, since historically most of the Caribbean, like all of S.America, was a caste & class based civilization, rather than 'race' based one like in the USA. ;-) Thus in French Caribbean caste & class system rich whites descendants of the 1st rich colonizers were/are called 'bekes', white descendants from 1st poor white colonizers were/are called 'little whites', middle whites born in French Caribbean where/are called 'white creoles', & in class/caste they are all below & less worth than the whites from France called 'metros'. ;-) This why traditionally even Usonian Whites in Europe are seen like worthless POS mutts. ;-D Anyway, let's get on bizz here. ;-) Ya remembered the Xamples from Spanish Caribbean (Cuba) & what that woman told/Xplained ya? Now I'll teach ya about BRA one more time, & let's make it the last too. ;-P

- in BRA this sexy Afro-BRA sis of mine dancin' is what we refer to as 'black'. & she has the right to refer to herself as 'black' ;-)


- the same goes to this sweet Afro-BRA sis of mine. Since she represents that 'pure' black or almost black Africa ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- & here again, Afro-BRA sis w/ glitterin' silver top/bra dancin' near a BRA 'brown'(w/ red flower in her hair) babe. All the other BRA babes dancin' around are not considered 'black' in BRA, but today (in the past we had 140+ various terms to define every shade of BRA peeps) generalized in 'brown' ;-)
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

- however, this BRA couple dancin' one of our typical BRA club dances is not 'black', but what we in BRA consider 'light brown' peeps. See the diff.?! BTW, they are good, & this BRA groove ya hear in the background is relaxin' too ;-D
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Got the logics how it works for the most non-Anglo societies in the world?! ;-) Rihanna?! She's surely not Usonian Black/AA on any side of her family tree. She's a Bajan, an English Caribbean light-skinned mutt babe who in BRA would fall straight in 'light brown' group -- if she were a BRA babe, that is. ;-D & ya should also realize that in BRA 'black' only refer to a shade or a color, not peeps as an ethnic group. ;-)'Ni- insert gg -er' is a term which was officially used in BRA to define a dark-skinned BRA ethnic group @ a certain point in time. However today, it covers mostly poor peeps, & it's used as a class term. ;-) On the other hand today in BRA 'black' is also applied as an endearment term that is used regardless of one's real skin tone. & also to define a subculture comin' from the USA & referrin' to Usonian Blacks. It's all good. ;-D

In case everyone did not know- Rihanna is documented for bleaching her skin. If you look at her beginning photographs you can see, she was quite african-american at one point. Slowly she has turned white. It's her choice & I'm not judging but she has gone through bleaching. Maybe that's why our friend thinks she's white....Take a look for yourself.

She does look a shade or two darker in this picture of her when she was young, looks to be in her mid teens in this picture. But not drastically different, so you're probably right about the skin bleaching. It still doesn't change my mind on what I said last time! If I saw her walking down the street, I'd still think she's a light skinned mixed girl. Compare Rihanna to the average Haitian woman who is extremely LITTLE non-black mixture, and you see the stark difference between being MIXED and not.
