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.Clap
 
There's a BIG BEAUTIFUL world out there (of acceptance) .. away from all that hate in America.
Grow up.
 
Soledad is ... doing just fine.

please give an example of the bolded words in red please

Confusedhuh do you mean hispanic or spanish from spain?

because sammy davis jr. is black and his nationality his latin... so please splain yo self again


Nationality and race (or culture and ancestry) are two different things, you just proved my point. That man was a black man, because of primarily african ancestry. He may have been called Latin because of where he was born an raised, but there was no question as to what race he belonged to. I came at the wrong two members and my initial point got lost in the muck.

Soledad has been interviewed about her childhood and said she always considered herself black and so did her white neighbors on Long island. Being Black on Long Island isn't easy so I am sure she is a bit familiar with the struggle.
