You cant be black through your father, you are black through your your parents. She is biracial.

Quick question, no shade, but have you done a DNA test to trace you roots to see what percentage of black you are?

For all we know you could be 45% Scottish.

I’m just confused by your need to “correct” me.

Is Zoe Kravitz black “black”? I mean both of her parents are half jewish.

Yes Ive done several DNA tests. And I am black. But Nice try.

Have you people deluded yourselves into thinking youre of Biracial.

Of course Zoe kravitz is not black, her parents arent black.

Lol, I’m done.

All of these people are black. African DNA is just too strong to be white washed.

People get mad when mixed blacks say that they’re not just black, and now people get up in arms when they claim their heritage. Ridiculous.

Well she has stated before that she is of African American heritage through her father, but due to her complexion she is often mistaken for being non-black.

For the sake of this article, you’re just supposed to play along. Though Halsey is by all accounts, white passing … technically, Halsey is bi-racial and she acknowledges her black father.

Her father actually is black. She acknowledges that she’s white-passing but identifies as a POC.

…and Bruce Jenner identifies as a woman, Rachel Dolezal as black (much to the grief of her poor white parents that raised her).

This is really cool! I’m glad this will be an ongoing thing! It would be cool to see a collaboration with SZA (http://www.elle.com/beauty/makeup-skin-care/tips/g8613/sza-easy-eye-lip-look/?slide=7), Shingai Shoniwa of the Noisettes (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/27/arts/music/27goldman.html?_r=0)

Halsey’s dad is black, just because she is fairer skinned which she didn’t choose doesn’t make her any less black

Yeah her mother is white so that means she is not black. She is biracial. Black babies do not come out of white women.

So , if you’re mixed, you’re not black? So I guess, I am not black :l cause I’m mixed. My mother is mixed, my father is mixed. what you are trying to say is if the mother is white or any other race, the child is not black? To understand more: I am from the Caribbean.

I think what Brianna is trying to say: If a white woman has a baby with a black man, her child will not be black nor white but both. That’s like saying a black woman who births a white man’s baby pops out a white child. Not possible. The child is mixed. Two white parents= a white baby. Two black parents= a black baby. 1 white and 1 black parent = a mixed baby. 1 Asian and 1 black parent = mixed baby 1 Arab and 1 black parent = mixed baby. ONLY a BLACK MAN and a BLACK woman can produce a BLACK child.… Read more »

Halsey is indeed black: black dad, white mom. And she’s very vocal about black issues and what it means being a white-passing black girl. Google it and stop with the ignorance!

Lol this should have titled 4 women of African descent (or woc) b/c of including Halsey. I have no clue why black Americans cling so badly to the one drop rule which was put in place by racist evil white Americans. Halsey is part black but not black. She could walk in a store and not get followed, she can find makeup her shade anywhere she probably doesn’t get pulled over like Sandra bland. I’m not bashing her or people like her at all lol so don’t come for me but she’s mixed race. Maybe because I’m Panamanian I see… Read more »

Great another biracial vs black debate and a story about jealous black girls beating up mixed girl over her hair. Smh Speaking of hair. Remember when when Black Girl Long HAIR has putting out articles to give tips and guidance on natural hair care. You know way back in the good ole days. Now barely any new posts are hair care content. I like other discussions being includedbut I thought that was the main point of the site. I think this has gone a new direction. Maybe need new name.

Well I guess black women who are really into makeup can get something useful from this article. Of all of them my complexion is most like Lion Babe and both my parents are black.

They are all black, considering they have black in them but hardly any concentration of melanin. In my opinion, this is MAC trying to get their black customers back after the big scene, with the girl’s beautiful lips. MAC is very shallow.
