In all honestly, black americans are the only blacks that white people see on a daily basis, so if they see one that is attractive, then they equate it to black beauty, dark, brown, or light skin, its mostly us that have the colorism, and not all of us have colorism syndrome. The only time a white person knows when a black person is mixed, is when they look drastically different from the norm, now if mostly pure africans stand next to Gabrielle Union, a white person will know something is different looking about her in some way, but its due to her admixture. Black Americans come in so many looks, and mixtures, and to me, our women should be the face of beauty for Black Americans, a.k.a African American, and not the world, because many dont even know that we have admixture in us. She has afriacan and some native american traits, I see it in her eyes, and her skin tone, and her hair type.

<quoted text> and watch some people trip about this..I'm not thats who she is as a black american woman that's her background which is different from others and she is a proud bw.. people argue about these things because they can't accept the truth....
but I'm done talking about this, I don't care as much as some make it out to be...but Many do need to care that bw not even from this country are on the ad campains and stuff..the same thing is actually being done to white women here as well
to them the women are just black..but therese something calle "protecting your brand" you tiink we can go do the same thing to other people? hell no..
In our country, the fault is america, and for black people embracing the 1 drop rule, but we did it, because it was forced on us. I dont consider myself African American, and Im a similar color the gabrielle union, a little bit lighter, and its so obvious that Im one of those blacks with native american ancestry, and Im a medium color. When I say Im black, I mean "black american", not black african, not black carribean, but in the American sense. Some of the stuff we call black here, will not fly in Africa, brazil, or any other country. Black American beauty should be "black american beauty". I do distinquish Africans form black americans as well. Black Americans know that they are not full african, and will tell you in a heart beat, and its not out of hate for many, its just that the 1-drop rule created this mess, and white oppression. We are a mixed race ethinic group, with at least 75% of us having some type of admixture, which includes first generational bi racial people, and they can look like regular light skin black americns, and the brown ones.

58 percent of African Americans have at least 12.5 percent European ancestry (equivalent of one great-grandparent)

19.6 percent of African Americans have at least 25 percent European ancestry (equivalent of one grandparent)

1 percent of African Americans have at least 50 percent European ancestry (equivalent of one parent)

5 percent of African Americans have at least 12.5 percent Native American ancestry (equivalent to one great-grandparent)

The latest estimate is 20% european, which is 1/3, and they did not test the whole population, so you really dont know how much of what you are. I know many will get mad, but I dont care.

She said in an interview that she has West African, Native American and Filipino ancestry, so essentially yes she is mixed. She's not pure black.

Mixed hair type I assume, meaning curly, and she has the same skin tone as my boss. I say mixed hair, because I have seen gabby in a pool with her hair wet, its curly. A lot of black native american mixed people have her color that I know of, and even some asias, when the parent was dark. You see, people think of mix as in mixing light and dark skin, well her races that mixed in her family were brown people, mixing in with black people. Let me show you a half philipino. Gabby has a reddish tint to her skin. this is a half philipo, looks hardly any different. http://184.173.199.238/~ampro/ html/wp-content/uploads/2010/1 1/sharon-leal-6.jpg
http://images.starpulse.com/pictures/2007/11/... No huge different between gabby and this wome at all.
