Geesh people ... what haters you all are!
I think you all just hate her because she is so light skinned but you try to pretend it's all about her politics. Hee hee! I'm not buying it.
Soledad clearly stated that her mother was Afro-Cuban. Have any of you folks ever BEEN to Cuba? Well, I have and a great deal of the population was Afro- Cuban (Black) .. a minority being (White) Spanish - Cuban.
And her father is Austrialian - so both of her parents are immigrants to America which is something she has spoken about in the past. So how does this combination translate to her being Black American? In fact, I have never once heard Soledad say ... she was Black American.
I have met soo many Black women like Soledad that have been so beaten over the head (verbally) by Black Americans because they look and act 'too White' and then those same people further talk about them because they married White people.
Well if Black people do not accept them (and I'll bet Soledad got it bad from Black folks at an early age) then they will surely end up with a White partner and producing children that look like ... whatever the genes happen upon. Duh! Nobody can control how kids turn out. Another point of ignorance. The kids look happy and healthy. That's good enough in my book.
So sad that Black Americans are so UGLY to everyone that doesn't fit into their mold .. of what it is to be Black. Ultimately, it just runs folks off .. which is for the best actually.
There's a BIG BEAUTIFUL world out there (of acceptance) .. away from all that hate in America.
Soledad is ... doing just fine.
