If you're supporting an event called Black Girls Rock you shouldn't say sh*t about your non-blackness.

I don't know what it is about Keisha, but she just looks like a light-skinned chick to me, but if she says she is mixed though, I believe her.

Is she to take everybody else over her mum?...although Frankie is suspect.
So I think she was trying to be upfront for those in the know, as not to offend or have
people calling her out because they remember Frankie's claims.
Sounds like that backfired for some though.

I spose Sasha & Malia would catch the same flack, however they'll likely be as  savvy as their dad regarding if you look black you're black rule. Who wants to walk thru life focusing/defending something of which they had no control.
 
No one has a problem with her being mixed. The issue was when she brought it up. Black Girls Rock is about uplifting Black girls. Keisha's tone threw some people off.
 
 
It is possible. Mya is Black and Italian. I know that every mixed person doesn't look alike, but points of reference are sometimes helpful.
 
Mya:
 

Alicia Keys is Black and Italian:


Corbin Bleu is Black and Italian:
 

The Mowry kids are Black and Italian:
 
 
And Keisha Cole...well, I'd believe it. Plus, she can be what she wants to be.

She really doesn't know what her ethnic background is. I mean Frankie could have did calculations and pinned it on the Italian guy, but who knows who she was messing with. Keyshia doesn't look Italian and Black and the picture of the man they showed on The Way It Is reality show didn't look like her. She looks like she has a father who is mixed though. I'm sure she is of mixed race, but she is black point blank until she finds out who her father is/was. Her momma is  black and she was raised in a black household. I'm surprised everyone just took Frankie's word for it..has Maury not taught us anything? LOL

A lot of people had a problem with it, but to be honest I didn't watch, so didn't catch her tone, I do agree it depends on how it's put out there. However personally speaking genetics do not adhere to preconceived ideals.
I have this combo in my family and they've been called everything accept what they are, some even go so far as to tell them they aren't related to one another...from sibling to sibling.

It's more an issue that some people think they are better off w/Euro blood and that's sad, but I'm  not mad at her because she embraces all her ethnicities...it's not like she ain't channeling black female.

As much as BHM has a history of side-eyeing  folks who claim their swirlness I do believe the issue in this case has nothing to do with her being she's bi racial.
And more so with her
saying it when she doesnt even know it to be a fact since her mom was a crackhead and no one knows who her daddy is.  She is assuming this based off her exotical characteristics and most likely the blue magic and water wave/curl test.
Im not sure what her purpose was to insert that "im mixed" comment it seemed out of place. Regardless of if she is or isnt mixed the question was how it felt to be apart of it. ..She addressed it as if she was a special black helping the regular blk girls.

[QUOTE=FarraFace]Sasha & Malia? Really?

Sasha & Malia know who both their parents are.

Sasha & Malia know that 3 of their 4 grandparents were black.

Sasha & Malia know that they are black.

I'm taking Frankie at her word as she was there and I wasn't...LOL

Sasha & Malia cannot know who their  fathers parents are and believe they are just African /Kenyan, unless they are blind and or crazy. Culturally they are African American.
