What would Rihanna be to jamaicans or to people in the UK?

Jamaicans would most likely call her a "browning" which is basically a light to medium brown skinned black person. In the UK she would be seen as black.

<quoted text>Both of Rihanna's parents are of color with African ancestry so how is she biracial? I never said Jamaicans didn't call themselves black, which is a color but that they just don't drag the word African (which represents a whole race of people)into their self-description.
Rihanna's Mother is black!

Rihanna's dad is black and mixed something else at best

Exactly the only people who use the word African to describe Jamaicans and other Caribbeans are some whites in the UK who lump all black Caribbeans together under the term "Afro-Caribbean". But most of us don't describe ourselves that way.

Same here. We would probably call her a redbone or a light brown skin person, but still black, thats just a shade or color to us. Some also would probably not say she is light skin per say, because she is barely yellow, but definatley a ligh brown skin tone. People her color were called light brown or medium when I was younger, but now a lot of folks are calling them light skin. Ciara would not have been called light skin by the older folks, but a caramel brown color. Now, I am still young, and I had to tell some folks that they are not light skin, and one person was crushed lol.

Yep, I love American people of color also because we are a multiracial group of people that really can't be pinned being African, white, NA but a mixture of all.

True and I have heard white Brits on tv say things like our African population never distinguishing the cultures. I am glad when I hear other black people like Jamaicans, Afro Cubans and black Brazilian have their own individual cultures and embrace them.

I bet your bragging white friend is not on a forum discussing it like a group of nerds discussing nuclear physics.
Or are you trying to use this as a feel good sessions to compensated all of your failings,.ignorance,fatherless bastards and all?
typical honkey always stereotyping !! You made a statement that NO one obsesses about skin color but black Americans and SORRY but you are dead wrong about it! The forums don't prove anything and every ethnic group has their issues why are white women always discussing tanning ,anti aging creams and treatments???? And we have every right to obsess over wtf we want this is a forum for us right?? Don't worry about it!! Ghetto??? LMBAO what that suppose to hurt my feeling or something ???

With us, its about culture, not how mixed you are, because we know we have mixed raced people in our family somewhere, some more far back, some more to the front, but I guess you can say we are multigenerationally mixed, to different degrees. In america, I would not consider Rihanna multiracial, and thats becaue she is virtually average for us, in terms of genetics, but if we were more pure, then her light skin and green eyes would stand out, then I may would consider her mixed, but you can find AA women with her color all the time, because of different reasons. I will say this, if we keep mixing, we will fade out, because we do have some non african in us.

What are they implying when they say their African population never distinguish the cultures? That black see themselves as all the same?

I disagree. If you had a child by a black man than the child would be black with some white ancestry because of your mother. If you had a child by a white man, some would consider that child multiracial, a quadroon or other people (mainly some black people) him/her white with some black ancestry from you.
I would want my child whether they are from a black man or a white man to identify as biracial because they are mixed with two races. How people see them doesn't matter because at the end of the day biracials in general are seen as black that doesn't make it true. Just because people disagree with me and can't seem to grasp what I'm trying to say doesn't make it any less true. I can't argue with a word. Biracial doesn't mean 1/2 this or 1/4 that it means two races. Therefore my children will be biracial in my book. But thank for sharing your opinion. I respect everyones opinion on this thread even if i don't necessarily agree.

Do you have any idea how many people are not pure African but still called black? America is full of them remember BLACK doesn't just mean race because if it did almost nobody would be black in America !! Black is anyone that shows visable African features and Black is also a term used to define a culture in America!
She is definitely NOT black.
What matters is not what people think, but what you are. No matter how much you all want mixed people to be black they are not. They are multiracial or biracial. Black is not a culture, African American is.

You date the black men who are attracted to black women.
And the black men who prefer to date out. You leave them alone to do so.

Yes, who would stick with Black males based on the stats?

From child abandonment rates @ 78%, No education, Prey on women financially and emotionally, Seek out Young girls under 13 molest & rape them @ 65%, don't mentor, Don't Father, Don't Marry, Don't Lead, Don't Provide, You Don't protect, have high incarceration rates, Crime Rates, Destroy your own communities, don't give back to the next generation, Hate Women, Spread HIV/AIDS, Communities filled with Porn, Drugs, Hustlers, Thugs and Wanna Be Ganstas......run after WW/Non BW and do for them somethings..........you worship them like you did; but basically treat them like you treat Black women!

Your Right! Which is why I leave Black males alone!

I also signed the petition to "Not Defend Black Manhood nor Support" Black males as most of you WARP MINDED DEMENTED BLACK MEN LIKE YOURSELF WILL DO FOR WHITE WOMEN/NON BLACK WOMEN BUT NOT YOUR OWN!

So sad! You look very African and Maceo looks like he came from African too. I'm not sure why everybody wants tot be mixed or seen as mixed.

The push is to date/marry out for Black women even if it means other races!

Why?

Black men are Sorry, marginal and don't do the work to keep their families! Nor do you respect women!

I always run into immigrants who ask my race or racial breakdown. Most of them especially races of color say "Black Men are horrible and how they treat their women even younger Blacks /Africans say..........they don't understand it!

They always tell me Black men laugh and brag about how they destroy and run games on women all the time as if its a game! They don't do that in their Country
