A certain type of Latina.
In most of Latin America her mom is viewed either as a predominantly black borderline Mestiza or a full-fledged mulata.

I know people that thought Dina, Clint Eastwwod's wife was Mexican too. She is black, Japanese and Irish. Her father was a homeless teen, a Mexican family took him in and adopted him. No Latin blood at all.

Since Tina Knowles parents are not from latin america then it is fair to say that she wouldn't consider herself to be any of the two types of latinas you listed

You hispanic people are the first one's to deny the fact that you have black blood, but then when an African American person becomes successful you all itch around and say sh*t like this. Its the same sh*t white people pull.

Beyonce and her mother are not from latin america so therefore this whole thread is pointless.

I remember seeing a L'Oreal commercial, one had Beyonce in it, the other one had Jennifer Lopez in it. The one with Beyonce said that she was French, Native American, and African American. Yet, J.Lo's version of the commercial said that she was puerto rican. I never understood these commercial's. If Puerto Rico is a nationality, then why on earth did L'Oreal put all these other races on Beyonces commercial to describe her ethnic make-up. Instead of saying that Beyonce was America they put that she was all these different races. I know this has little to do with the thread at hand,but I just thought that it was odd and a little biased.

"Instead of saying that Beyonce was America they put that she was all these different races."

LOL THEY?! THEY?! Beyonce identified HERSELF on that commercial! Ain't NO ONE forced her to identify as french and native american LOL. She did that to reach more consumers because to whitewash yourself into being mixed=more money made. 100% American isn't as provocative or "exotical" sounding as "black native and french"...because guess what, everyone in america is American!!! And since it's a beauty commercial, beyonce obviously is buying into the stereotype that "just black" isn't beautiful or appealing as saying you're "mixed" with something other than black down the line. American wouldn't convey the message of physically "beautiful" because it's too vague and therefore common and unattractive BEAUTY-wise...STEREOTYPICALLY 100% American can mean a lot of things physically and won't reach anyone's desire to go out and buy the product...now to get a rally started...100% American...maybe.

Hmmm that is very interesting. Same way these people try to clam Halle Berry. Yes she is half white, half black but claims to be black. That is how she identifies and some whites get so mad when she says it. If she was a dental assistant or not pretty they wouldn't claim her. I wonder why they don't argue about Rain Pryor being called black, she's half and half too. Hmmmm.

Child, Why you mad? Beyonce has said on more than one occasion that she is black, and creole, but most of the time she says that she is black. The producers of the L'Oreal commercial did not want her to say that she was just American because they are racist. If she was white american, then they would not have allowed the white actress or model to claim all these other different races, especially black. STEREOTYPICALLY Puerto Rican can mean a lot of things as well. Everyone in America is NOT American. J. Lo should have claimed American too since she was born here, yet she claimed to be puerto rican. All puerto ricans don't look like J.Lo child. I can't believe you are trying to justify this and trying to pin it all on beyonce. LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!

Black American entertainers are pressured to claim being descended from other races by racist producers because those producers don't think black people will be able to sell their products by stating that they are only black. So therefore they claim being mixed. Unless they are from Africa.

Whites dont want to own up to the fact that black people just might be more intelligent than they think.

but she has enough power and clout in the industry to basically command what she wants...or are you admitting that she's a sell-out?

You got that right! But they have always been afraid of that, that's why to tried so hard to keep blacks from being educated. Because we know what dim bulbs they are, they didn't want to be shown up.

Her mother looks more White creole. Being that creoles come from a Spanish/French culture I guess you could say she was Latin.

But she would never be considered 'predominately' Black anywhere. What's the matter with you?

No you couldn't say she was Latin because she isn't.

Second thought a fool can say but the fool would be WRONG!

Jealous of what stupid muth#fu*ka? Halle Berry doesn't look white in any shape or forum and you trying to say she does is just plain desperate. Her mother is white, I never said she wasn't, but Halle has never said she was white or mixed race or anything like that. She says she is a black woman with a white mother. Now put that in your mouth and swallow hard with your jealous ass. You people come in here and talk trash, a lot of black people have a white parent or grandparent or great grandparent including me, dumbass.

Funny how you think you're telling me something and you don't know a damn thing. What am I jealous of?
