    i think these two are gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.however, here is my problem. i hate when a man like tyson beckford who is black – jet black – comes up with this bullshit about being half panamanian/half chinese/half whatever. give me a break. he is black.what chinese person would come on and claim they are part black and still be considered chinese? who cares that he has all these mixes genetically? he is black and looks black so why mention the other races?it makes me feel it is a way to try to be more acceptable to the public by claiming all of this heritage that in the end a cab driver who doesn’t stop for him on the street won’t care about. he will always be treated like a black man so why not just claim that? who cares about the part chinese or part whatever? he is black. and gorgeous.he should be thankful that his black blood has given him such dashing good looks. naomi does the same thing, she always says how she is part chinese and part jamaican. doesn’t the girl look black to you?come on now!

    Maybe, hes proud of his heritage? Maybe it has nothing to do with trying to be more acceptable and that he is just stating what he is? I’m Indian but I often get mistaken for other ethnicities, why do I correct people when it most likely doesn’t matter? Because thats who I am, my roots. I find it ridiculous that someone should forget part of their background and who they are just to please people like you who think being identified as a certain race more important than accepting your background, roots and history.

    I agree with both sides of the race debate. While I think it is valid for a person to be proud of their mixed ancestry, I also believe that there is a disproportionate number of successful Black people who constantly have to proudly claim thier non-black parts. We live in a society where being black isn’t the best thing out there (unless you want to be commodified, enslaved, relegated to subservient television roles, or appealing to Kevin Federline — and ain’t nobody proud of that but Brittnay [and she's having some afterthoughts now...].The issue is that we live in a multiracial and cultural society, but "majority" (white) people rarely claim to be associated to marginalized groups that they are likely attached to. Hey, Slavery took over this country for a bit. We all know that a bunch of black people have some white in them (and a bunch of those mixed babies had babies with white people — when they were "passing" (Wentworth Miller is one of the only White looking mixed people who proclaims his Black heritage [I guess it's cus daddy is black and all up in his face].I’m ready to hear a straight up White person (not Mariah — cus she looked straight up mixed when she was a kid, so she can’t deny it) say that he/she has some Black, Asian, Indian, or Middle Eastern blood up in them.It simply ain’t gonna happen. It’s easier to be proud of who you are when nobody is suggesting you shouldn’t be (i.e. a white person doesn’t have to claim any other racial affiliation in their heritage, cus being White is good enough in today’s f#cked up world).

    Anonymous 11:04, I couldn’t put it better myself! That is exactly what I was trying to say. Thank you for being so eloquent and maybe even clearer than I was.How many White people we know who say they are a quarter Native American? Actually, most White people claim some Native American Heritage. Now the Native Americans were wiped out to near extinction yet still so many White people can claim them as part of their lineage.How many White people do you know claim that they have Black blood or lineage? Not many. If they were able to be exposed to Native American blood this much, then certianly they were exposed to the blood of their Black slaves who lived in their homes and were sexual slaves to their forefathers? Yet White people never claim this blood. To their defense, this society is setup that the minute you have Black blood, you are automatically considered Black. Yet if you have Native American, Hispanic or any other blood, as a White person, you are still considered White. It is a way to keep Black a minority and a group with less numbers to be accounted for.It is this very problem that makes me resent the "I’m quarter Asian, half Chinese, half this and half that" Blacks. Blacks are so eager to do it, unlike other ethnic groups.This is why I love Halle Berry. Her mother is White but she said her mother was very clear with her and told her that she was a Black woman and to be proud of that because that is the way the world will see her. I think it is this pride that has made Halle so succcesful – she is grounded in who she is and understands the world for what it is. I really respect her.Tyson and Naomi – I don’t get. Their parents are straight up Black! Until I hear Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Christie Brinkley, Cindy Crawford talk about their great great Black grandmother, I really don’t need to hear Tyson and Naomi (with her straight Asian girl weave) talk about their Chinese blood or whatever other blood.I am sure the many companies that passed Naomi up for a cosmetics contract only to give it to a blue eyed White girl could not care less how much non-Black blood she has.

    Again, I agree. And when White people identify with Native Americans, they rarely connect to the cultural issues. It’s all about the mysticism of being a part of a near "extinct" group of people. That makes them feel special. Not the actual culture that is inherent to the Native American experience. The sad thing in this country is that White people think that race is a moot point. But that’s only true for them. They don’t have to deal with it in as salient and consistent a way as other people. I’m a guy. But even guys think that sexism is not a real issue. It always seems that the people with majority control or power aren’t willing to understand the problems of the disenfranchised.In all honesty, I have mixed racial heritage in my family. But, hey, at the end of the day I walk down the street as a Black Man. When I’m in New York with my White friends, my eigth of whiteness doesn’t change the fact that I should stand on the curb while my lighter friends walk out into the street to hail a cab.I’m glad I could add to the discussion My Two Cents. You started a fire in me, and now you have me writing these "Anonymous" comments when I got serious work to do.Anyway, I hope that some people out there can take this dialogue as a moment to question issues of race that still exist.

    I AM NOT A CHINNIFER FAN Says:

    Hey Anon 2:24, again quite eloquent. Thanks. Hey I have cab stories too, believe me! Weird when the cabbie is Black though, no? Some black cabbies don’t stop for us!!! Picture that!I am a girl and I apprecaciate that you understand sexism. I too have a great grandfather I think, who was white. My family ranges from very light to very dark. But yes my experience, being followed in the grocery store, etc is that of a black woman. (people being surprised I am black after they spoke to me on the phone cause you know – I spoke so well :).Funny, not too many people posting here. I think these photos are fabulous, I would think more people would come here. Maybe if it was about Britney!Yes, hope that people continue these debates for they are important for getting rid of the problem. Maybe one day in our lifetime, we will all just be labeled "HUMAN". Nice chatting with you. You sound like a cool person. Thanks!

    JENNIFER A GREAT ACTRESS Says:

    I don’t think Naomi is trying to deny her black heritage, but she was one a few black models, so she is probably trying increase her fan base and say she’s BLACK AND …not that she BLAH BLAH AND NOT BLACK.

    shouldn’t it work the other way though:i.e. when you’re one of the only Black models, shouldn’t everybody be up on your sh*t. And when you’re one of 8 billion white models, shoudl you be saying, "hey, I got some Black or Latina or Blacktina in me"(so you can widen your fan base). I’m not sure that excuse works…

    Get Over Your Self Says:

    Anonny. person that posted at 5:16am what the hell is your prob? The person that posted before you was involved in the conversation. Get the stick out of your ass and talk to people like an adult. If that’s possible.And I have to say I hate it when black people try to ***** about people that are black claiming they are trying to avoid their "black side" Hey smart ass BLACK IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT.! You DO know that BLACK is not a term that was orig. do you? You must be aware that black is a relativily new term and was used to sep. the various races. By doing so keep people in line and keep certain groups down. But of course you knew that. Get over yourselves. There are billions of people all across the world that although have a particular shade to their skin have many different ancestries going on. I understand that their is a benifit to saying your part this or that but that does not trump the real meaning and intention of people such as Tyson B. I have German, English, African, Native American, Asian and American ancestry. I am prode of ALL of that. If someone asks me what I am I say Black because I feel comfortable with it. But I would gladly claim the other parts of my family background. They are the reason I am here today. All of that made me the person today. I would not be here. None of us would be here if cultures and races intertwined and came together. So perhaps those that want to bash Tyson B. should unerstand it comes from love and respect not a need to pass or claim something else other than Black.

    when Tyson first came out on the scene, ppl knew that he wasn’t ALL "black" because of his eyes just like Rachel said. And if the man wants to claim all of his heritage, then let him. He knows he’s seen as a black man in America, but there is much more to him that, and if he wants to let ppl know about his other ancestry, then let him.

    This is why defining a person by color divides us all. In reality, we all are a mixture of many different cultures. Hopefully, one day, all of us will evolve and progress enough to see pass the color and see each person as human being with a common goal, for love, peace, happiness, equality, justice for all. I appreciate the thoughtful and respectful discussions here on the topic.

    11:24 I agree but until then Whites need to start acknowledging their Black lineage as much as Blacks are willing to also. Without fear that this will take "white benefits" away. Come to think of it, none of my fellow Whites ever admit to Black lineage. Why is that? There must be ONE of them that has Black lineage, right? Interesting.

    True Dat "Anonymous Too". Again, I’m not bashing Tyson, I’m just frustrated by the trends that allow and inspire minorities to identify with all of hteir rich heritage while White people don’t have to (or feel the need to). That’s my problem.Also, there’s no stick up my ass. When Rachel mentions that his eyes look "Asian" that’s like me saying "the sky is blue". That’s all good, but connect the comment to some meaningful dialogue.Now why hasn’t there been a White person championing the rights we’ve been talking about. It seems that everyone who has identitified their race/ethnicity on this stream, has been a person of color.Now ain’t that a shame.

    I hear you. I want to hear a White person say "I have the right to claim my black heritage"! Or a White person say: "I am part Irish, part german, a quarter Ukranian, and a quarter Black". I want to hear that.But then if they do are they automatically considered Black? If a White person said the above, would you not automatically say "oh so and soo is Black". This is an incredibly interesting question.

    Also, lots of Africans, Native Americans, Latinos have Almond shaped eyes. So Rachel’s "he has Asian eyes" comment is a comment out of left field. I agree.

    Why is it that Black people perpepuate the black pin drop rule that if you are a pindrop black you are black rule from the slavery days. People should embrace their ethnicities and be proud of it. Why the hell not? black does erase other ethnicities…it is not about being more accepted by society. sadly mulitculturalism is not accepted by society yet.
