This is so stupid!!! Do those silly ass people NOT know what Creole is?!!! Beyonce is African American AND Creole!For you dummies...Creole is a mixture of Native American, African American, French, and Spanish! When will people leave this damn girl alone? As a Creole woman, I know how annoying it is to never be black enough! Just because we are lighter, does not mean we are trying to be white!
Not a stan or a hater.But her French sounded awful.And I like the black shoes.
@ 10:17 Agreed I am not sure why they didn't just say she was Creole.
@10:17 but Haitians are Creole and many of them are very dark.So why are you trying to make it that Light skinned Creoles represent ALL creoles.Oh yeah and I cannot forget about the VERY WHITE and ONLY WHITE Creoles either.I am glad that Beyonce recognizes her non black heritage.I just wish her mother would stop calling herself black too.
Trying More and more to appeal to whites. Shes so fucking pathetic.
10:17 AM. You are white. Damn the white mans "one drop rule" you can pass for white and receive white privilege white that mixture.
She ani't creole she's a cheerios.round on the outside NOTHING in the middle ASHY LARRY
Mrs. Cosby thanks for clearing that up for everyone...goodness. I know that cause I have creole family members on my mom and dad side. If I did this commercial about my background/heritage I would have said native american and african american...would it have been bad? No, cause Im not famous...lol. I love you Beyonce! Keep your head up..HTOWN!!!
Honestly, I really don't care. I'm black and proud and neither L'Oreal or Beyonce can tell me what looks best on my skin! But I have looked into a lot of info on creole to get a better understanding of the origins, and it seems that NOBODY has one succint definition of it....so go figure. This debate will go on all day. Have at it people.........
For all you fools and blind sheeple. L'Oreal is famously known for being a racist company. Secondly, Beyawncee could care less about any of you. Keep buying all this crap and putting up roc signs.
Ruh Roh! **sips green tea**
Hatians are not creole- they SPEAK creole
Haitians speak Creole, but they are not Creole.Creole, is a heritage mixed with Native American, White, African, French and Spanish. If you have ever visited New Orleans, you would understand the history and the culture better.But don't get it twisted, Creoles are Black people and part of the African Diaspora.I myself have Native American, African, and Irish blood; I consider myself an African American or Black American.
Haitians ARE creole. They soeak KREYOL, a language based on french; kreyol and french share many words and phrases. Educate yourself dumbass.
This is silly. What exactly is the problem? If the girl has a mixed heritage than she has a mixed heritage. Sometimes that causes unique coloring such as very light or very dark with usual undertones that most makeup companies dont have makeup that matches.I actually like true match foundation because it is one of the only foundations that I could find that wasn't too yellow or orange.
That second video is a true definition of Nigga in Paris for real! LMAO!
Lets see, every black can claim indian, and caribbean blacks are indian and french also. But we are BLACK. shes just doing that to seem exotic. youre BLACK.and yes, Haitians are Creole.
Does she not understand that to the white powers that be that it doesnt matter? And she'll be a nigga bitch when she comes home to roost. And we will take her back with open arms...why do AA try so hard to embrace every ethnicity but their own?
DEAD AT 10:28
Black enough black enough who the fuck cares? If youre mixed race and blacks don't think you're black enough then fuck them why does this always have to be an issue? You don't have shit to prove to them. And this bitch? Beyonce honey your hair is fake you were not born in France, hell your freakin grand parents weren't even born in France: You are BLACK bitch. Your hair is nappy your father is black as tar and your mommas hair isnt even straight so please give it a frikkin rest. stop!
Not really understanding what the problem is here..The commercial is about "True Match" and for most African American Women it IS hard to find a true match since ALL of us are of mixed race anyway but claim Black on everything. Her last name is KNOWLES. It is French...so what...Can't be mad cause she knows her lineage and most of us don't.
Ummm but Haitians are Creole too....
Dont forget this bitch already said she wishes she was born Latina. She wants to be everything but black. She dont give a fuck about the dark skinned AA with black features, yet they are her biggest financial supporters.
If you can't see that Beyonce's skin in her photos is lighter than she actually is then you have a vision problem. Loreal (and other makeup companies) do this all too often.The funny thing is that Beyonce is not a dark-skinned woman. Ask yourself why they would feel the need to make her lighter than she already is.Teach your children to love themselves no matter what their complexon is.
Haitians ARE creole. But you know how some dumbass black people are, if youre not light skinned with "good" hair, then you cant possibly be mixed, or anything but black.
Why the fuck does she even need to mention race? I agree w/ 10:40---she just wants to seem more exotic. She's black as far as most people are concerned, no matter how light she photoshops or bleaches her skin further. I'm so tired of her antics. Can anybody truly be this self absorbed and involved with themselves? I mean really. Can't she just take a damn break and take care of her lil surrogate baby.
OK...and? She is CLEARLY mixed, what is the big deal? Why should she deny all of who she is so you loathesome darkies* can feel better about yourselves? *I am a brown-skinned African-American woman but I do not need a celebrity to only say he/she is "black" for me to support them.
@ 10:51And let the church say Amen. To them, how dare someone with chocolate skin and afro hair be mixed? You are ruining their dreams and fantasy about what multicultural people look like. They would rather deny that haitians are creole, just like egyptians deny theyre african, just so they can keep their fantasy alive that all mixed people are light skinned with wavy hair.
Okay, for those of you trying to go in on me, I am NOT white!!! I am a Creole woman, and I never said that Creole people are just light. My family has ALL shades in it. Yes, there are Hatian Creoles also. I think the hate in this country is sad! Black, white or green,we are ALL American, so who cares what shade?!!! Some of you ignorant ass people need to learn about other races before opening your ignorant ass mouths!!
Uh Beyonce Michael Jackson jacked up his face in order to appeal more to whites but here's the thing: he had is talent to back it all of that up; YOU on the other hand DON'T have that luxury. That said, this will not do anything for your career hun white people still hate you for Lenox hill and people in general just want you GONE. YOU ARE DONE!
@10:47How do you know dark-skinned AA with black features are her biggest supporters? Show me the receipts! Beyonce has a large fan base with all types of people. Most of them are black but they all don't look like Whoopi Goldberg so sit the fuck down.Stop trying to make it seem like she is harming people just by being light-skinned.You people have some serious issues.
@ 10:58 Look who makes the stan videos for her on youtube. THATS MY PROOF. Look at her audience in the crowd when she reduced the price to $20. THATS MY PROOF. Look at who wears dereon. THATS MY PROOF. Look at where they sell dereon clothing, in urban stores and in department stores located in majority black neighborhoods. she knows her audience and who will and wont buy her crap. THATS MY PROOF.
Beyonce is payi g people out the asshole to defend her on this spread. Whatever.
@ 10:58 So you think all black people look like Whoopi Goldberg? Child shut the fuck up you imbecile. You sound ignorant as hell. Dumbass.
@11amAnd let the church say a resounding a fucking men!
@ Mrc crosbyALL haitians are creole.@ 10:51 & 10:55I couldnt agree more! Most African americans have a mental illness. Its almost self hate. They associate anything light as being good and put other races on pedestals.
Is this bitch serious!!! I guess she's setting this up for when the baby emerges, looking like Indian or French, the media will say she got the Native American genes from Beyonce's side of the family. This bitch is calculating and I can't believe Jay Z puts up with all this bullshit! They deserve each other because Jay Z cannot recover from this...he has lost his credibility...he's a punk and needs to stop rapping. Shit like this made me missed Tupac.
@11:01I don't stalk her or her fans but just because you are an asshole, I will post videos of white girls with blonde hair singing Beyonce songs. Reducing tickets? Duh, black people are overwhelmingly poor and broke so of course if she reduces ticket prices more black people will be able to attend her shows. How is that proof that she doesn't care about dark-skinned African Americans with black features? You said she doesn't care about her fans who are overwhelmingly dark skinned with black features. There is no proof of that AT ALL. Because ghetto people wear Dereon that means she doesn't care about them? She is providing a product and they are purchasing it. She knows her core fanbase are black women and she doesn't exploit that in any way. You people project that onto her. She cannot help the fact that she is light-skinned - get over it! Just like people can't help being dark-skinned with black features (which I guess you consider to be a negative). You're an anti-black black racist trying to hide behind Beyonce. It is you who has the issues with complexion, not her.
@ 11:01 IVE NOTICED THE SAME THING!! Drive to any majority white neighborhood and look in the big shopping malls at the department stores. Ambercrombie & F, aeropostale, hollister,etc. they def do NOT sell dereon. Drive to any majority black city or area and what fills the racks? dereon! beyonce know what she doing.
Beyonce and her stupid ass family mama always throw around the tem creole. Beyonce and Tina does not know the true meaning of creole. They just throw his term around every 5 mins as if they were trying to be exotic. Solange came from the same hosehold as Beyonce I have never heard her saying she is Creole. I do not see real biracial women such as Alicia Keys, Mya, Mariah Carey, Aaliyah, Faith Evans, Kim Porter and more shoving down their ethincity down people throats. Just because Beyonce wears tacky European Weave, lightening her skin for millions, and shave her nose. Does not mean she is Creole. The knowles has a history of lying I am not falling for the bullshit.
i'm not a big fan of sandra rose, but she's talking about this same Beyonce shit on her blog and said..."If Beyonce had any French or Indian in her why would she need a walk-in closet full of custom made lacefronts?"Bwahahahahahahahaha
@ 11:11 THANK YOU! Barack Obama, halle berry, tatyana ali etc, all who are REALLY multiracial and multicultural, NEVER thrown around that theyre only partial black, to seem exotic like beyonce does,who really is 100% black. that girl has identity issues.and yes girl you cant thrown on a wig, black your skin, and reduce your nose, then claim to be exotic. bish youre still black.
Yeah the baby is light skinned which explains her earlier fake claims of mathew not actually being her father and that some other damn near white dude was. This bitch is so insufferable and self hating its disgusting: And I agree with what was said earlier in reference to mj he pretty much got a pass because he had more talent then god. This bitch is not on his level and therefore does not have that luxury; she needs to have several seats.
**throw on a wig and lighten ur skin
If you are a product of slavery you are considered a mutt which means that you are mixed with a combination of two or more breeds no matter what your complexion and hair texture. Listed below are other famous people that would be considered mutts.Obama and Tiger and Jeter and Mariah and Alicia Keyes and Selma Hayek and Halle and the late great Bob Marley.
@11:15 Well said.... Tina and Beyonce has been making this bullshit up since Beyonce first hit the scene. Beyonce really had a hard time going to school because Beyonce was light skinned with long hair. Bullshit. Beyonce had a hard time in school a dummy. Tina had to save face and came up with this fake ass story.
You people are sooo fucking funny!!! These comments just make me laugh! Cuz at the end of the day, her life is going to be judge in the eyes of God!!I understand we as black folks come from a mixture of our races, and backgrounds! But it seem to me black people hate just being black! Always the extra, I'm this and that, but we all know most races will not claim us as their own! But other races of people sure quick to jump on black dicks, and have our seed!!! Yeah black dick stay winning!! SO FUCKED UP TO SAY , BUT KEEPING THAT SHIT REAL!
@ 11:10 Interesting observation. Now that I think about it, Ive noticed the same thing- black celebrities who market their cheap fabric, cheaply made, overpriced clothing to urban black people, who they know will let their lights cut off and cash in their food stamps just to buy some dereon or apple bottoms. When the celebs are around white people, you think theyre wearing dereon, baby phat and apple bottom jeans? LOL NOPE. Versaci, CL, Hermes, all sht you cant afford and that they bought with the money you spent on their cheap product. They dont give a fck about you.
Typo... Tina and Beyonce has been making this bullshit up since Beyonce first hit the scene. Beyonce really had a hard time going to school because Beyonce was light skinned with long hair. Bullshit. Beyonce had a hard time in school because she is a dummy. Tina had to save face and came up with this fake ass story. Lies after Lies.
@ 11:19 Your comment describes Beyonce perfectly. She always says she wants to be latina and claims part of their hertiage, but do you know what Dominicans do to their neighbors, the haitians, and to black dominicans, their own blood? they KILL them. Google it. While beyonce busy claiming all these races to seem exotical, note that they dont give a FUCK about you and will NEVER claim black, and will kill you if they get the chance.
^and the funny thing is, Beyonces hair wasn't all that long and she is really more a honey brown complexion and not light skinned. When I think of light skinned I think of tisha Campbell or will smith. Beyonce is not that light sorry.
@ Mrs Cosby, Get your bitchass off of snitch! I am very light too, my mom said it's from my great grandfather's side of the family who were Irish. I don't go around calling myself Carib American or Irish American...I'm fucking black and I refer to myself as such. How come this is the first we're hearing about this mixed shit from Beyonce in commercials? Bitch, please!!

Creole- what ever! she looks like me a light skin african american woman one of which you see all day every day. Beyonce has no distinctive features that would make you think she anything other than black, point blank period. trying to rep something like it makes you diffrent.
Alex Trebek: "African-American, Native American, French"Contestant: "What is CREOLE?"Alex: "That's right, a ghetto-exotic people commonly found in Louisiana and neighboring southern states. Which category is next.."Contestant: "Let's go with BAD COMMERCIALS for five hundred, Alex"Alex: "And wouldn't you know it, that's our DAILY DOUBLE" (applause)
@11:24 Beyonce has the same hair texture as Solange. They were both the same complextion. They were brown skinned. http://jjb.yuku.com/topic/700024/Baby-pic-of-Beyonce-and-SolangeI agree Beyonce never has been light as Tisha. You notice Beyonce was brown skinned back in 2003 and 2004. Hmmm... The liars claim Beyonce gets tanned lies I tell you.
She looks like your average everyday light skin run of the mill hoodrat to me.........
ook??let's look @ the bigger picture here...mathew is NOT the father! LOL
Is this bitch serious!!! I guess she's setting this up for when the baby emerges, looking like Indian or French, the media will say she got the Native American genes from Beyonce's side of the family.

Shit like this made me missed Tupac. @ 11:06amIf everyone can see how we SEE, JUST ANOTHER COVERUP PEOPLE.
Lol @10:25, I though in America we are entitled to our opinions. So calling me a bitch does exactly what for you? Being light has nothing to do with what I was talking about. I was simply stating my opinion based on my experiences as a light skinned woman. I have always identified as black, and anyone who knows me, knows I am PROUD of everything I am mixed with! Let's be adults and not call people out of their names simply because we don't agree with what they are saying. I would call you a bitch or even a hater, but I'm a lot more classy than you :) Everyone have a blessed day <3
Shes not light, at least before the bleaching she wasnt. She was a brown skinned woman. Look at the early DC days when she was about 18.I know some dumbass stans are going to pull up her baby pics and say she was always light skinned. Dumbass, all babies are born much lighter than what their life long complexion will be. Hell my nephew looked chinese when he was born, skin,eyes and hair. He clearly looks like an AA now. Next excuse?
Black ppl always trying to hold on to some shit that their grandmother was, girl let it go, your mom is from galveston,texas just like me and your dad is black, #stopit
@ 11:35 GOOD POINT!! This will be her excuse when she goes public with the indian/white surrogate baby as to why it looks the way it does. Yall know she didnt use Jayz sperm, she didnt want the baby to look like an ethnic Black, something shes been fighting herself for many years.
11:08, the viewpoint that you have about your own people is slightly distorted. You need to read a WHOLE LOT of books about black pride and loving yourself.
SN: if that baby has ANY kind of wavy hair hair, its not theirs!! !So don't even think we are going to fall for this creole bullshit, when Jay hair and yours nappy as f&#K
11:34Mathew Knowles IS her father give that shit a rest.
EVERYONE DONT BE FOOLED!SHE IS CLAIMING INDIAN AND FRENCH ON THE AD SO WHEN THE BABY IS PUBLICIZED FOR MONEY, THAT WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE AS TO WHY THE BABY ISNT BLACK.
Mrs. Crosby - FYI Creole is NOT a race. It is a culture and type of food. African American is. MOST black people in this country are mixed with something (ex.French, British, German, American Indian, Irish, etc.) Unless you are 100% African, there is a mixture. Creole is also not a sanctioned race like Cape Verdean. One more time - Creole is NOT a race. Thank you.
EVERYONE DONT BE FOOLED!SHE IS CLAIMING INDIAN AND FRENCH ON THE AD SO WHEN THE TEST TUBE SURROGATE BABY IS PUBLICIZED FOR MONEY, THAT WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE AS TO WHY THE BABY ISNT BLACK.
...Question? why do Black people get offended when one acknowledges a part of thie EAL heritage? Is it hate, jealousy..betrayal???? Don't get me wong, I firmly understand the notion of 'eveything BUT black', we have only to look at much of Latin america for that sure idiocy, but simply stated a real KNOWN, and LEGITIMATE part of your culture is not necessarily 'denying your blackness', as Beyonce cannot deny hers!! Beyonce REALLY is fom French heritage...like OMG, REALLY!! Wasn't Tina's father white, I mean, her last name is Beyince fo goodness sake. Also Whee they hell do you guys think she got Agnez Dereon from? U think they're jsut making up ficticious white, and octoroon person with French names up? JEALOUSY it appears!!
^IGNORE RACE BAITING TROLLS!EVERYONE DONT BE FOOLED!SHE IS CLAIMING INDIAN AND FRENCH ON THE AD SO WHEN THE TEST TUBE SURROGATE BABY IS PUBLICIZED FOR MONEY, THAT WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE AS TO WHY THE BABY ISNT BLACK.
@ Bee Gee I am surprised at you. Regardless of how you feel about Beyonce; there are tons of Creole people who aren't ghetto that's like saying all black men are thugs.Only1Nikki
That is who/what she is. Problem?
@ 11:48 "Also Whee they hell do you guys think she got Agnez Dereon from? U think they're jsut making up ficticious white, and octoroon person with French names up?"****************************************Anyone who thinks that a person is mixed, JUST because of their name, is STUPID. My name is Valerie Isabella, and my family has names such as James, Diane, etc does that mean im creole too or multiracial too? DUMBASS.Not all black people have names like Jayqwontriesha and Travonte. Venture out of the hood.
I think skin complexions are something everyone disagrees on. I've always thought of light skinned, brown-skinned and dark-skinned when speaking of blacks. I'm light-skinned (i.e. Tisha Campbell), my son is brown-skinned (i.e. will smith), my husband is dark skinned (i.e. eddie murphy), but I consider us all black. Why do people have to muddy the waters is all I'm saying. Knowing your heritage is fine and well, but at the end of the day no one can dispute the way you feel about yourself.
This is so crazy... My last name is from Spain and I have Jamaican, Syrian, Irish and Cuban ancestry with chocolate skin but at the end of the day I am a black female and extremely proud of it and if I was famous I will rep as a proud black woman as well.. but to each it own..
@ second 11:54 stfu u hypocritical bitch. you just said you thought of yourself as the light skinned one in the house and ur husband as dark skinned, you even gave us celebs for comparison, and then u ask why are people muddying the waters? bitch arent u doing the same thing? Go tend to your imaginary husband and your pillow son.
Didn't Keri Hilson Tweet something about Beyonce's STANS throwing Bey's CD's at her? LOL
THEY FORGOT TO ADD "HOODRAT" TO HER HERITAGE MIXTURE!
12:06Yeah I heard Something like that. Bunch of I'll bred ghetto bitches just like their idol.
This is a stupid conversation. If you have seen the True Match commercials all of the women have their ethnic backgrounds highlighted. I'm sure if Viola Davis was under contract with them her ethnicity would be displayed in the same fashion. And, yes it may be as diverse as Beyonce's. Almost every black person that trace their family back to slavery can make the same claims on their ancestry. Get over this foolishness. It ain't that serious.
I just have one question: who wears L'Oreal??
Well, Clint Eastwood said that Beyawnce was the equivalent of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn.These whites have special sight: They see sht that nobody else does, and hear things only recognized by themselves.
@12:11Uh beyonce bleaching her skin, wearing a blonde piss lacefront and looking like a damn white girl and then having the Gaul to do this commercial says there is a real problem here. To bad you are not smart enough to see it.
12:23Oh my god I laughed so hard I literally pisses my pants YOU SOUND SO STIPID. Beyonce is that you illiterate hooray ass? Hahahaha!
Why do you sheeple care about her skin?. When your rights are being striped from you? There is protest everywhere trying to male all of us aware of the facts . You cattle will be nothing more than a prisoner or slave if you don't wake up a realize the what the current and near future has in store. 100's of you will comment on these post -yet not of you will sign a petition to stop the SOPA ACT that is in congress now. Not enough of you spoke up to prevent the MARTIAL LAW BILL. That passed which essentially takes away your many freedoms that had been fought so hard for. Do any of you know what's in the NDAA BILL OR SOPA BILL? I'm sure you don't. Worry not your King Bey will save you right ? She will give up her spot with safety for you and so will all the other wealthy ppl right?....stop focusing on gossip. Turn off your tvs and start getting informed
12:23Oh my god I laughed so hard I literally pissed my pants YOU SOUND SO STIPID. Beyonce is that your illiterate hoodrat ass? Hahahaha!
12:06Yeah I heard Something like that. Bunch of Ill bred ghetto bitches just like their idol.
Only our people fixate on this shit. We want to be everything but black and less than 15% of American blacks have native ancestry.
@ 12:43 bitch only BEYONCE fixates on it, not the entire black race. shes the 1 going around claiming to be anything but black and then saying she wishes she was latina, not us.
@11:54...do any of those name sound particulary 'ethnic' to u? Aside from your round about regular ol' Anglo-Saxon names ala 'Jefferson, Williams, and 'Jones', are slave master gave us!! Hmmm....With Beyince, and Dereon, excercising rational thinking would lead one to presuppose a particlar heritage!! Smh
@10:51 AM - Whites are just as dumb they think every light skin person is mixed.
LOL She says " today is about being honest, pure and deep....it was ACTING!" OH MAN! Bish you make this TOO EASY!Her and Jay give some of the worst interviews in the biz for real!she is like a retarded child! I just cant any more.And why the fuck she's been on celery ,watercress and spinach juice for a week? Is that one of Mama Tina's diets to keep the cash cow trim ? Oh lord!
LOL AT "ghetto-exotic"!
now we all know she was not BORN with skin that light! she has my skin tone in that pic and commercial and I am just a white girl who tans easily.
She need to explain why she named IT after the love of his life. Don't take the bait they tryning to explain now why IT does not look like them.
I used to live in London for years. I was just talking to a friend of mines recently who lives in London. Her daughter is white/Haitian decent. He could pass for white, but acknowledges her black heritage. My friends daughter is a French/Business. Her daughter quit working for Addeco Employment services because of her L'Oreal account back in 2000 because of their racist practices. What I am disgusted with Beyonce about is the fact that her ignorance is sickening. Historically L'Oreal has been racist. The one of the original founders/owner is a Nazi sympathizer. Racism continues in the corporate world. L'Oreal was found guilty of racism. In France they purposely set out to hire all white salespeople to sell Garnier Fructis shampoo in French supermarkets. If you don't know L'Oreal is based in France, and has a whole world domination on the cosmetic industry from Mabeline to high makeup lines. I had totally forgot about this-as I hadn't talked to my friend for years. My friend had reminded me about L'Oreal in regards a fax was sent (to her daughter) out to all the recruitment reps at Addeco in France and the fax went on to state that in order to sell supermarket brand shampoo, you should be under 22, because anything older is gross and geriatric, you should be 4 to 8 in US sizes, because if you are too fat the effects of the shampoo are limited, and you need to be white. For those who don't know "BBR" "stands for "bleu, blanc, rouge" (blue, white, red) — the colors of the French flag — and is a well-known code for white people racist people in France. It took almost 10 years to sew L'Oreal. Needless to say this was as recent as 2009, the Highest French Court (like the Supreme Court) found L'Oreal indeed racist practices and was only fined 30E (Euro's which is about 45,000 u.s. dollars). The court went further to say that the decision "is not reversible or appealable". Yet, Beyonce aligns herself with the likes of these people, allowing them to bleach her skin and this new madness...Yet again, she continues to sell her race and herself out for the sake of being their spokes person?....I just can't today. Wake up people and stop using L'Oreal products all together and Beyonce should honestly be boycotted as well....SMDH!“In overthrowing me, you have done no more than cut down the trunk of the tree of the black liberty in St-Domingue-it will spring back form the roots, for they are numerous and deep.”General Toussaint Louverture- The leader of the first black free nation who threw Napoleon Bonaparte's asses out of Hait!Learn your history!At Peace People!
@12:53I've got your bitch. You sound so pissed you must be one of the ignorant negros I was talking about.
Funny as I'm reading this I'm sitting in a restaurant where two black waitresses have gotten into an argument about whether one of their children is brown or light skinned. One waitress said the others daughter had beautiful brown skin causing the other to go into a tirade about how her daughter was light and not dark. One of the white patrons asked what it was about. After the explanation was given all ahe could say was "oh thats funny". Our people really need to do better and stop focusing on this nonsense.
Heading back to work people. Sorry about the typo's this morning. I had to get this off of my chest completely. It's a wrap for Beyonce and JayZ my family. JayZ is no different aligning himself with Barclays bank.It is laughable about suing Jigga over slavery reparations...but BarClays is historically known throughout history of the economic rape of Africa!Rapper Jay-Z is being sued for $5bn by a man seeking slavery reparations.The music mogul and developer Bruce Ratner have been accused of "working in concert" with Barclays Bank and "profit[ing] from the African slave trade" by activist Clive Campbell, The Guardian has reported.Ratner is in charge of Brooklyn's $4bn Atlantic Yards project which will see the construction of 6,000 new apartments along with a basketball arena for the New Jersey Nets.As part-owner of the Nets and a staunch suporter of the Atlantis project, Jay-Z has found himself drawn into an argument over slavery after Barclays brought the naming rights to the basketball arena for $400m.The bank faces long-standing accusations that it had links to the 18th century slave trade with some suggesting that it co-operated with South African apartheid, although Barclays deny the claims.Campbell accuses them of being involved in “a conspiracy dating back hundreds of years and [continuing] to oppress black people, enslave them, [and] unlawfully deport them to all corners of the Earth.”Read more: http://www.metro.co.uk/metrolife/105991-jay-z-in-5bn-slave-trade-lawsuit#ixzz1jptg53bM
ThatBKChick said... What I am disgusted with Beyonce about is the fact that her ignorance is sickening. BUT BEYOUNCE IS A COMPLETE ILLITERATE SO I'M CONFUSED BY YOUR DISDAIN! PLUS SHE'S MARRIED TO A COMPLETE ILLITERATE ALSO! THIS WOULD BE EXPECTED AND I WOULD BE MORE SHOCKED IF SHE DIDN'T DO SUCH THINGS!
so when was this filmed? before the pregnancy? why everything she been coming out with is alwyas "pre-bump"..who she tryna fool?
11: 46 Cape Verdean isn't a race it's a nationalityknowles is an Anglo surname not French 12:09 LOLcosign Only1Nikki@11: 05 what do you know about most African Americans? Are you a statistician?Also not all slave women wee raped and not all American blacks are multiracial. Cosign beyonce wanting to be anything but black
@11:48. I would like to respectfully disagree; I don’t think that black people are jealous of mixed race person. Some mixed race black people including celebrities like to make claims to the mixed heritage to feel superior. They sometimes don’t feel like they are not good enough, being just black so will brag about their mixed heritage. Beyonce has been called out by the white media regarding skin lightening/bleaching. They basically called her self-hating. She never spoke out or gave an interview to defend her blackness she just accepted the accusations. Most black people famous or not would flip out if another (white) person accused them of hating their black heritage. She only claims black when she is trying to sell her music or clothing line. I am personally embarrassed by her.
second 1:24Dont you have to cook your imaginary husband dinner? Nurse your pillow baby?
We all are mixed with "something" ... I guess L'Oreal & Beyonce want people to know that this overly successful BLACK woman has other heritages she needs to embrace/thank for her success (how dare BLACK people take all the credit for her success) ... but the BIGGER issue with this commercial is her speaking voice ... why is her voice sounding sooooo deep, husky & manly??? They're really trying to tone down that southern accent.
Another tidbit. The reason why some black folks with French surnames are so proud of that part of their heritage is because the French slave owners usually took better care of their offspring than the white slave owners. So if you were of any color, white, black etc with a French last name you were given certain privileged that other people did not have. But here’s where things get complicated. Some poor and average white women and some racially mixed black people would change their name to a French surname and then reinvented themselves to pass for French. I’m not saying this is the case with Beyonce people but some did do that back then. So not everyone from the south with a French surname is a true natural descendant of the French. And if you are a true descent of the French then good for you, but guess what most people in America or France or the rest of the world could care lest. Unless your lineage has the cure to cancer, AIDS or a solution to end world poverty you are just like everyone else, sorry to break it you.
This light skin vs dark skin is so sad. You don't see any other race of people talking about light vs dark other than BLACK people & when BLACK people get through with this debate, we all are in the same damn BLACK boat. We, black people, are holding each other back, we can no longer blame it on other races. Yes, it's ok to embrace your other heritages, but to embrace them just so you can appear/seem less black & gain the acceptance of more people is sad also & calling people "mutts" is sooooo disrespectful!!!
I agree that the surrogated baby (innocent and precious) is of South American heritage (with very little if any Black blood) and is to be claimed that her very light skin is because of Bey's Native American and French (meaning white) bloodline.I bet the Knowles Carter's wanted a little girl who looks likes Halle Berry's daughter Nahla with very light skin and eyes and light brown/blond curly/wavy hair and is considered one of if not the most beautiful celebrity child. Nahla is a beautiful child but world is full of beautiful dark to light skin children so the most beautiful is arguable.We all know how Beyonce wants to out do everybody and wants "The Most Beautiful Child" title for her own child, we know to her beautiful equals light skinned not dark so there for her bought surrogate baby will be Nahlaesque. Beyonce (and Jay) are SICKENING!
@12:11 I agree with U 100%.
@11:02 I love Bey, nobody paying me. Why should i hate on a person i don't know. U haters got to much time on ur hand. Do or say something nice, just maybe ur make it to Heaven.
Yes in this day and age the old light skin vs dark skin debates are kind of sad and we as a people must do everything we can to beat back and fight aagainst it. But let's not kid ourselves. During slavery one of if not the most heinous and cruelest crimes the white masters inflicted upon our ancesters was to teach them to hate themselves. Their black and dark skin, nappy hair, wide noses, thick lips etc. This shameful crime was to be inherited and passed down through the generations and is still being perpetuated today by US!Those of us who see it for what it is and try to teach our children that black and yes dark black is very beautiful have an uphill battle because the media, popular culture and even our own families STILL perpetuate the sick Willie Lynch doctrine and we have some of the Beyonce's of the world trying to make a buck off this shameful thing we do.Beyonce is a victim of it too because she IS ignorant.
How come every time something is printed, or said about Bey or any other person in the spot light u people run with. U would't know the truth if it hit u up side ur silly heads. Some opinions need to be kept to themself ,like a ass hole.
3:27shut the fuck up beyonce you illiterate she dog!
3:13...You love Bey? How can you "love" someone you don't know? That's the REAL question! It makes more sense to hate ppl like her---her lousy image is FORCED on the public, her entire vibe is that of a harlot----poisonous, materialistic and slutty!
@12:28Smart enough to see what, sweetheart? It seems that you are the dumb one. I see the lacefronts and the possible bleached skin. Big deal. All I am saying is her commercial is no different than the white or asian chicks that have the same True Match ad running on television right now. Maybe if you valued reading comprehension over trying to "talk" slick at a stranger you could see that. One more thing, it is not spelled Gaul. It's gall... stupid!
3:13...So in other words saying something nice about BeyDummy will get one to heaven? It's official, you stans are absolutely retarded! Complimenting vanity, sin and sluttiness doesn't get ANYONE to heaven...it just means you are a brainwashed DRONE in need of deliverance! This broad has you idiots under a spell and you are too stupid to realize it!
I can't believe Ateya is on here commenting, SMDH. Ateya aren't you the same chick who made a video with Remy Indian hair and you was happy because some people ask you were you Indian. Come off the B.S. You and Beyonce are full off shyt! **Oh and Ateya then next time you put on a WIG over a WEAVE I'm going to Fed-Ex you an A$$ whooping! You stupid Bytch!**I am all for people embracing their heritage but when you don't know shyt about it, it's makes people question you and your intentions of using it. Beyonce uses her mother's heritage to set herself apart from the rest. Beyonce was ask by a Haitian Creole do she speak Creole and she was dumb founded. She couldn't even talk to the man who seem to have had something in common with her. Think about that.Why don't she talk about her father's heritage? Is it because he side is frown upon? Beyonce completely ignores her black side but yet will embrace the side that she thinks stand out. Everyone knows that Loreal doesn't embrace black women as they are and for Beyonce to be in on this culture charade is baffling. It's a damn shame!
I'm Native American ,Black and white...and....
Beyoncce sound so dumb in the commercial...Looks so classy but sounds like ghetto,trailor park trash ,4th grader....lol
Creole is a language not a race...
A portion of 6:11pm's post: "I am all for people embracing their heritage but when you don't know shyt about it, it's makes people question you and your intentions of using it. Beyonce uses her mother's heritage to set herself apart from the rest" ~ perfectly stated!!! :)
BEYONCE-YOUR CHICKENS IS COMING HOME TO ROOST.
Nobody buying this shit.
Another thing....Beyonce has traveled all over the world, met many different nationalities, races, etc, seen things many have and will never see or experience in their entire lives...So why does she speak and behave as if she never left her Houston front porch? With all this "mixture" that she is now claiming or so proud to be a part of why hasn't she learned other languages like "FRENCH?" How can you openly claim French when you can't even speak or imitate a French accent? She knows nothing about Native American or French culture--she is completely removed from it--the bitch is 75% black with kinky hair! The 25% Caucasian only shows in her tone which really doesn't count in the whole scheme of things! That commercial about race & ethnicity was pointless and unnecessary, FUCK L'oreal! They make it a point to lighten this bitch on every Ad and commercial to look white so what's the point of that French, Native African American crap?
What I can't understand is why people are falling for the playing of the race card that L'Oreal and Beyonce are doing. I rarely ever wear ANY foundation-type cosmetics on my face because plain old Ambi soap for colored women and water keep my skin tone perfectly evened-out to where I don't have to wear that mess. But on the rare occasion that I do wear any foundation, I choose the foundation that closely matches the level of melanin in my skin. I don't go and look for the make-up that specifically says on the label: "This is for the woman who's part Cherokee Indian/part Negro/part European Caucasian". By pointing out peoples' ethnic heritages, this ad campaign with L'Oreal and Beyonce seems to suggest that this how we should choose our make-up: based on whatever different ethnic races make up our genetics, when really, a woman chooses her makeup by how closely it matches the melanin (in the case of Negro and other non-white women) or non-melanin in her skin (in the case of European white and Oriental/Asian women). It has nothing to do with specific races or ethnicityBeyonce can give it up; she is Negro simply because her father is Negro. All that French and Creole shit she's telling herself is nonsense. Her mother might have some kind of questionable ethnic/mixed background, but it is obvious that more than a few people in Tina's familial history were Negro because when I look at her, aside from her light skin tone, all I see is Negroid facial features. Same with Beyonce. If she wanted to get real with herself about who or what she is, she need only take those white women lacefronts off her head and expose the true nappy afro or nappy braids under there. If you're a Negro woman and you can't embrace and appreciate the afro your Negro father passed on to you, then you aint shit and you might as well go bury your wanna-be white head deep in the sand.
^^*skin tone* Oh yeah and fuck racist L'Oreal and fuck BeyDummy!
All I have to say the ignorance in this thread is astronomical. beyonce is 'black', she looks 'black' in fact she looks like a 'black' woman who is trying to appear 'white'.There is POSITIVELY NOTHING EXOTIC about beyonce, people seldom even understand the definition of exotic nor what it represents.Her beauty is in illusion as far as i'm concerned because with the procedures she has and the other additions (hair, makeup) this clearly is a campaign to promote illusory 'beauty'I stopped buying Loreal products when she became a spokesperson. Loreal will not be getting a dime from me and there products as far as drugstore labels go are not even as good as it claims, Revlon and Almay are much better.Creole is not a race it is a dialect, a language and you can be of any race and speak creole, it is contingent upon where you are from in relations to that language and has nothing to do with physical appearance.
Igmar's Prophetess I agree with your comment 100%! I have Spanish and White ancestry but guess what? I am darkskinned with kinky hair! Black is the dominant trait, that is what I am and that is what I claim...Period!Let that bitch take off that blonde weave/lacefront and see how stupid she looks claiming Caucasian French and Indian. Better yet, post pics of her old wide nose!
OMG I am negroid=cameroon, caucasoid=france, mongoloid=china, mexico, north america (laurentian=iroquoian=cherokee). My nose, lips, cheekbones and eyes are a combination of all ethnicities but overall NEGRROID. My complexion is golden. Since birth my hair has gone from from black to red to brown to black and is now a dark brown and is a combination of coarse, silky, curly and straight but is pretty much afro. My eyes are dark brown-black. My body type is NEGROID. White people seeme as BLACK but surprisingly, and I know because of my melanin, some blacks see me as "mixed". I am BLACK. I couldn't tell you one thing about those other ethnicities but black culture, just like creole culture for some, I can identfy with. Black is a CULTURE...not a race. CREOLE is a culture. FRENCH is a nationality birds! NATIVE AMERICAN? Tell us which band while you're going deep? I know where I come from, so i can claim it, but I don't identify because I didn't adapt the culture. AFRICAN AMERICAN??? What the heck is that? AMERICA is a nation. Again, what part of AFRICA since we are going layers???? This is a weak attempt to be a separatist on her part. So sad. Beyonce is an african, european, north/central/south american NEGRO...The nonsense, is that we all have LAYERS...when it comes to RACE...it's simply HUMAN...the root race is AFRICAN if that's what you want to call it, but it is easier to just say HUMAN. If they want to be distinct...keep it yellow, black and white.Calling out nations ain't got nothing to do with nothing. You either brown, pale or yellow which is the mix of black and white, the "in-between"...good Lord. What a way to keep peoples' mind occupied while ya stealing and killing. WAKE UP EVERBODY!
All of these nationalities & titles are just another man made distraction to keep our black asses bickering & separate from eachother! Simple divide & conquer! Most of us never questioned where the names Africa or America came from, we just accepted it like we did religion. Let us bicker & fight for something greater like becoming sovereign, gaining & celebrating our own independence, & being completely tax exempt from this nation like the natives.
She is ridiculous and so pathetic. She might be 1/3 this and 1/3 that, but the real truth about her is that she's 100% FAKE and that's the part we really see. I notice she keep going outta her way to avoid claiming THAT!
@9:12BLACK IS A RACE. AFRICAN AMERICAN IS NOT. THAT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF LATINO. A MIXED RACE PEOPLE. THAT IS WHAT AA AND LATINO MEAN.BLACK IS A RACE FOR A 100% AFRICAN BLACK.
"There is POSITIVELY NOTHING EXOTIC about beyonce."AMEN AMEN!
Beyonce admitted that she was jealous that she wasn't born latino! give her another 15minutes and she going to sneak in latino, People should be proud to be black the earth was black before it was light read the book of Genesis, everything came from black and when it dies it goes back to black. She gonna ride this race thing into the ground! When I look at her I see a black woman that wishes she was white, thats all!
Smh. I agree with the majority here. Beyonce has displayed over the years her lack of understanding and her blatant silence on this issue. The lack of speaking up when this situation occurs is what is killing her! It is NOT the first time L'Oreal has white wash her! A past few days ago Beyonce updated 4 promo cover she was pale as a white woman with barly any clothes on. Where was any comments on this? She look like a white woman!Beyonce is not being unfairly pick on on this. Beyonce has a history of continuing to deny is is black. She is only black when it is convient for her i.e: selling to urban communities or appealing to the hip hop crowd with her husband. This is the only time she wants to mention she is black as an afterthought. She continues to stated she is everything but a light skin black girl from Houston Texas!As much as I can't stand her sister Solange, she doesn't run around and say something stupid regarding her race or pretends as if she is everything but black.The girl went natural with her hair that her sister would be so ashamed to even do! If she is so mixed, then Beyonce why all the wigs? Why you hiding?Beyonce has self hate RWS. Point blank....why any black woman would allow a company like L'Oreal to degrade her image into a white woman? Fuck this appealing to white folks shit. There are plenty of other companies Beyonce can go to to appeal to her RACE AS WELL! But I forgot Beyonce doesn't give a shit about that, she only cares for money and fame.Beyonce indian!?! Lmao....the only thing Indian on that girl is that blond lacewig she cemented on her head for life. The only thing French that girl knows is eating French fries at McDonald ( what she would comsider french) and french kiss her camel at night.Who are you fooling Beyonce? Your a light skin black girl from Houston Texas!Is she preparing us, when Blue Ivy comes out like one of MJ kids--- "non black" features to use that as an excuse? Smh--- how stupid do she think people are?What next Beyonce--- your the cousin of Queen Elizabeth too? Stop with the lies Beyonce!
Ironically, MJ never denied being black and even after his skin complexion changed (due to the autoimmune disease vitiligo - which was detected in is autopsy!) he still did sly things to piss white people off (buying the ATV music catalog containing Elvis & The Beatles music,taking Madonna to the Oscars, marrying Elvis's daughter, giving Little Richards his music catalog back for FREE, etc. etc.)MJ did not want to be white. Rodney Jerkins, Will.I.Am, Teddy Riley & many others have attested to that. Quincy Jones said that bullshit because he was mad that MJ outgrew him and worked with other producers. Quincy also has no room to talk since he hates black women. MJ had nothing but BLACK women as his love interests in videos.MJ worked with mostly black musicians and producers. He always stated his love for African and African American culture. He contributed more money than ANY OTHER celebrity to black charities. In closing, MJ never tried to convince other people he wasn't black and no matter what color he was, he was always black (especially to those who hated him). Beyonce is trying to get everyone to forget she is black and has never showed any real support for the AA community.

It does not surprise me at all that Beyonce is mix with another race other than black from her mother, Regardless of Beyonces real hair texture, her natural medium golden yellow complexion does not come from being all black, Thats just a fact.
Yall need to lay off beyonce and get over it, Beyonce is not denying her father race because she said she is part african american, I do not see nothing wrong with her embracing her other french and native american race through her mother, and regardless of her real hair texture, beyonce is still of mix race so get over it.
12:47you need to respect how some mixed race people choose to identify and stop one dropping people. mariah carey has said MANY TIMES that she does not consider self black and so has jennifer beals. and nichole stupid richie is not black but lionel is AND HE IS NOT HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER. and wentworth miller as far as i know, has always racially identified as mixed race and nothing else. that said, if mixed with black people want to identify as black that's fine and their choice should be respected but the same repsect out to be given to those who choose to identify differently. its only fair.
People, People, how ignorant art thou, news flash, a mix race black person's hair does not have to be straight, wavy and have Caucasian features to be mixed. Regardless of how wide beyonce nose is and how nappy her real hair is, I still knew she was mix with something other than black because of her natural medium golden yellow complexion. I come from a family full of mix breeds with black in them and I know this for a fact.
1:05am:the same respect and acknowledgement she shows to her mothers side ought to be shown to the fathers side as well. its only right.
@12:42Exactly, and don't forget is epic releases "Black or White", "They Don't Care About Us", "Liberian Girl" which all alude to the fact that he was proud of who he was and the media lied about him all the time. In my Bret the Hitman Hart voice as far as music goes Michael was the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.
^ his epic releases.Afterall he was originally signed to Epic records still have the vinyl. How dare anyone compare beyonce to him? Lunacy at its best.
@12:42exactly thank you.
I'm just wondering when will the wig ever come off if "it's about being honest". That isn't her hair, she's been bleaching, plastic surgery to change that platapus nose she used to have. I mean come on son with the illusion. #fakebitch
Beyonces shows respect to her fathers side too by ackniowledging being mix with african american.
1:39amits not enough some of us would like to meet at least one member from daddy's side of the family. you know, like how we know of ugly angela and a couple other Tina's byiaences? its only right.
Wth was that at the second clip? SMH @ this crap
dang 1:39 aka-Beydumsay learn how to spell.
black is beautiful but i am glad that she is acknowledging her native american heritage. Both of my maternal grandparents are half native american and neither one acknowledges it.Its sad because my aunts including my mother used to get bullied and harrassed because they were light skinned with long hair. As a result, they barely acknowlege it even when people ask if they are native american or hispanic, or ask how do they get their hair so long, they never acknowlege their native american ancestry. And native americans just like african americans have made big contributions to our society today. Wish my people would embrace that side too.
Beyonce and Jay Z wanted and got a Halle Berry'sdaughter looking baby. They want Blivy, I mean Blue Ivy to be "The Most Beautiful Celebrity Baby" considered more pretty than Nahla because it is not enough that They think Blivy is the prettiest, they want everybody else to think it too. Watch and see!
So this baby should have beautiful hair.. Beyonce does not
Umm, WTF beyonce stans are so RIDICULOUS and OVER-THE-TOP AT ALL TIMES, why stans fight so hard to make beyonce so unique and superhuman is insane, stans really need to be locked away and studied. and what do stans mean she's clearly mixed and they're glad she's acknowledging her heritage? The F*ck? beyonce stay doing everything she can to not appear BLACK, and as CRAZY and DELUSIONAL as she is she probably thinks she's in an interracial relationship with Camel, she probably paid to have Latina or Creole or Other listed on her fake ass marriage certificate What the hell stans mean She's clearly mixed??? How the f*ck is that clear, especially when we know who her parents are-a black man and a half black witch, which makes beyonce a black ass girl with a dry ass weave? Since when did it become okay to claim you are mixed because of your grandparents, when did it become okay for a black person to not check the "african american" box because of their grandparents race? If that's the damn case I guess the census need to go back door to door and redo their numbers because some people messed up and checked black not taking into consideration what their grandparents are. SMH Once again beyonce trying to start some psycho trend for her stans to follow, they going to be like "oh sh*t my grandmother is french and her grandfather was Mexican so I'm Black,French, Mexican I need to check the mixed race box. SMHsince when did light-skin and blonde weave equal "clearly mixed" and since when did light-skin and BAD HAIR equal clearly mixed. If it was anybody else they would have to have curly or indian straight hair to be called "clearly mixed" but stans stay making exceptions for beyonce, they stay trying to make her more special then she is.Being mixed is so irrelevant and NOT A BIG DEAL when it comes to Mya, Halle Berry, Mariah, Tia&Tamara, Traci Bingham, etc. They just get called black girls, given roles for black girls and are underrated as American beauty symbols like black girls and they are CLEARLY MIXED, but when it comes to beyonce being mixed is such a marvelous concept, a money-maker, a ticket seller, a big ass deal. GTFOH with this overrated skin bleaching hooker.
@1:15 AMI wasn't trying to 'one drop' anyone. I believe people have the right to identify themselves as they want but just because a person looks white (MJ's kids, etc.) doesn't mean they are white.Looking and being of a certain race are not the same thing. This is why 'passing' is a sad phenomenon.
you cannot throw on a dry ass blonde wig, bleach your skin, get surgery on your nose and then claim to be mixed. self hate at its finest!
Word to Beyonce: Nigger. Please.
^ get help and quit fucking little boys.
Anonymous said...@ Bee Gee I am surprised at you. Regardless of how you feel about Beyonce; there are tons of Creole people who aren't ghetto that's like saying all black men are thugs.Only1Nikki11:51 AM ==================================Nikki I was just jokin, baby. Ma bad.
I'll bet French-speaking people laughed like a mofo when that hoe said she's French! Her father is clearly a negro man and that is what Beyonce is: A NEGRO. What we know as "French" people are simply European caucasians (whites); they are only called French because they come from France and speak the French LANGUAGE of that country. To identify yourself simply as "French" means nothing because French is not a "race"; if you can SPEAK the language of France (whether you were born and raised in France and it is your first language, or you were taught it at some point), then you are simply a French-speaking person no matter what your ethnic identity is (whether you are caucasian, negro, or Mexican or whatever). I have never heard Beyonce or her mother speak a lick of French and for them to identify as "French" is ludicrous! Somebody has lied to Tina and had her believing she is part French, as if to say that French is some kind of race. European caucasian is real the ethnic identity (race) and maybe somebody in Tina's family is or was caucasian. Perhaps a great, great, great grandmother, twice removed, and by now, it doesn't even count anymore when it comes to Tina. Tina is clearly a negro woman; you can see it in her facial features. A person is whatever their father is since the father is the one who contributes the most to the genetic make up of a person.
BEYONCE hates her black roots, you can tell because she wishes she was latina, i hope she does not teach her baby to hate her race!
i've actually seen a picture of the baby its brown skin with curly straight hair. CLEARLY NOT BEYONCE OR JZ'S CHILD.
@418 You said it best!
Pay attention people. First of all most African Americans are mixed race however we don't all claim it unless its a straight Bi-racial situation because even though we may have a mix of different races, we grow up Black and are treated Black. If Beyonce was not famous they would call her a Black girl period. Beyonce does not seem comfortable with being Black- the blonde weaves should have told us that a looong time ago. She also said a few years ago that she wished that she was born Latin. This is probably the set up for that Brazilian Baby that she had. This is a straight MJ move. The baby will looked mixed and she will say it is because of her native american french heritage. People thinks she had a surrogate because of not wanting to loose her shape. she works hard she can easily get back in shape. I always thought if she had a surrogate it was because she did not want a straight Black baby. Her and JayZ's can only produce a Black Baby. Not enough creole in her to change that.
I appreciate that she is a hard worker and willing to do anything to get what she wants. I just wish she had more going on inside of brain.
Oh, please Beyonce says she's black American all the time. I noticed African-Amercian was the first on the list. It's fine for her to acknowledge her other ancestry. We don't get bent out of shape when Angelina Jolie says she's part Native American. Beyonce hasn't had any skin bleaching or plastic surgery. The girl looks like she did when she first came out. Some of you're exaggerating as usual. Obviously, hair texture doesn't matter because Halle Berry and Alicia Keys, who mothers are both white, have the same texture of hair as Beyonce. They all have rocked their real hair, weaves and wigs. For the illiterate, I'm a Latina. But I'm black. Latino isn't a race, but an ethnic group. Have you ever heard of Celia Cruz or Gina Torres? Black women that are Latinas. Also, for the record, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, etc wear the same kind of weaves and wigs that Beyonce wears.
Kim Kardashian wears lacefronts and weaves too. Sophia Loren wore wigs all the time. I guess when you're Armenian and Italian. You get a pass. GTFOH.
So the fact that Beyonce has pics of herself as a baby and a little girl that clearly show that she was light-skinned. Now, some of you've deluded yourselves into saying she was brown-skinned. You're talking about how her baby is going to look. I know that you've seen Solange's son Juelz, who is curly-hair, light-skinned and light-eyed. I bet Tina Knowles' genes had something to do that since she is light-eyed and light-skinned. Just because somebody recognizes other part of their heritage, it doesn't mean that they're trying to not identify as mostly as what they are. Yeah, I did notice African-American was the first on the list.
Even if you can't tell, a lot of people have different racial admixture. But yes, I can look at Beyonce and tell she has some mixture. Beyonce's mother looks biracial. Beyonce and Juelz look like they took after her a great deal in their looks. Beyonce has looked the same all her life to me. She hasn't changed her skin color, anything about her face or body. I could care about blond hair when everybody from Etta James, Tina Turner, Mary J. Blige, T-Boz, etc..have had blond hair. Speaking of Mary, even she has said that she had a Native American grandmother. Beyonce has shown her real hair in a lot of the behind scenes footage. She even showed her real hair on the cover of Vogue and one of the Cadillac Records premieres. She has beautiful hair. But all of the women, regardless of race, are wearing extensions and wigs. I've seen Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry and many more doing the extensions and wigs thing. It's what most all celebrities do. Beyonce does recognize being black, first and foremost, and she has acted very proud of her culture. If you're other things it's not problem with recognizing them to some extent. Nobody gets mad at Angelina Jolie or Jessica Biel for saying they're part Native American.
I was going to say the same thing, but Alicia Keys and Halle Berry have the same texture of hair as Beyonce. Beyonce is lighter-skinned and than Halle Berry. Look at Michael Ealy with blue eyes and light-skinned, and both his parents are black. So you can't tell by looking at somebody what their racial background is all the time. I did see pics of Beyonce's grandfather and some of her other relatives. They clearly have other races mixed in. Beyonce even said that Mathew had Native American ancestry. Darker people have mixed ancestry as well. As long as she claims being black, I don't care her recognizing other parts of her makeup.
I guess some of you must've been mad when Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gate Jr said that he discovered that he was about 50% African and 50% European after doing genetic testing. Both of his parents are black. It was a commercial where a white model gave different ethnicities, too. I do think it's obvious that Beyonce has some mixed racial ancestry. You can look at her mother and tell that. Plus, she said a long time ago that her dad did have some Native American ancestry. Most black people have some different ancestries in their background. I don't see any problem in mentioning it. 99% of the time she has always said that she was African-American.
Beyonce looks exactly how she did in Destiny's Child. I get tired of people lying on this girl like she's bleaching her skin or had a nose job. http://photo.sing365.com/music/Image.nsf/PicUnid/22AF019CFC79478F48256B4C002217A5/$file/Destinys_Child_Sing365_124.jpgShe has always recognized and been proud of her blackness. To recognize, the other ethnicities that make up who she is, it's nothing wrong with that. The white model Aimee Mullens did the same thing in the ad. As somebody said, nobody gets upset when Angelina Jolie says that she's part Native American or Richard Gere says he's part Asian. Some of you need to grow up.Yes, all those celebrities wear makeup, weave, wigs, fake buns, etc.. that does include Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, etc. I read that Jennifer Lopez has a million dollar worth of wigs that she keeps in a separate apartment. Yes, I can even go back to Sophia Loren, Greta Garbo, Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe and all those stars in the past doing the same thing. I've probably actually seen Beyonce's real hair more than any other star that wears the fake hair at times. Her wearing weaves and wigs is to change and protect her hair like those other ones.Beyonce is a beautiful and the majority of the people that have ever met her say she's real nice. Some of y'all just got too much bitterness in your heart and it ain't got nothing to do with her for real.
Beyonce has always looked like she definitely was a mixture of races to me. A lot of black people for that matter have that same look because they're a mix of races. You can tell by looking at her mother and other people on that side of her family. Plus, she mentioned her dad had some Native American heritage. I see that in him if you look at some Indians they've features similar to his. It's nothing wrong with saying everything that makes up your family. She still considers herself, first and foremost, black. Btw, my grandmother is Afro-Cuban, so Latino can be a black person. It's not a race but an ethnicity/culture. I still think Beyonce was just being nice and trying to pay a compliment because she said it was because of the culture. The Latino culture has a lot of African influence.
so sick of black people and especially dark skin black people being mad when mixed or anyone identify their cultures/race other then black but then when you identify with black they consider you not be a "real" black person because you don't look like them. stop with your low self esteem and move on, maybe you should take a ancestry test then you can have something to identify with too
Creole is a language that is spoken by the slaves of French people......Creole is broken French.......also, French is not a race, white, black, asian, latino are show to be ethnicity. France or England, or Germany are places where Europeans are or White people with other minor ethnicities live. French doesn't make sense here.
Yall are giving me life...I thought I was the only one side-eyeing the hell out of this commercial.I guess having one light skinned parent and one dark skinned parent makes you mixed now. I must be mixed and so is everyone else I used to think was just plain old black. We exotic now..FOH
Beyonce is African American with Creole roots. By the way Africans did not come in many colors the only color was a defect called Albino. Once the Africans were taking from there land and brought to the Americas they became mix (raped or not)Blacks come in many colors because they are mix in there background. Beyonce CREOLE history (she is related to me according to Ancestry.com) Tina Knowles mother is Agnez Dereon (DeRouen), later Agnez Beyince (1924-1984) was a French Creole Louisiana. Agnez Dereon (actually born Agnes DeRouen), (pronounced dare-ay-on or duh-RAHN) was born 1 Jul 1909 in Delcambre/New Iberia, Louisiana, the daughter of Eugene DeRouen and Odilia Broussard. Self-taught, she became a well known professional seamstress catering to private clients in Louisiana. She was accustomed to tailoring pieces that stood out by decorating the fabrics she used with such embellishments as embroidery. Incorporating materials such as lace, beads and jeweled buttons, were just some of the ingredients that Dereon used to make her style unique and her own. Agnez Dereon later married Lumas Beyince of Abbeville, Louisiana, the son of Alexandre Beyince and Marie Olivier. The couple relocated to Galveston, Texas where they raised their family (some of the Beyonce relatives still live in Galveston). Both Agnez and her husband were of French-speaking Creole (or French Creole) descent; having, French, Indian, African Spanish, and Amerindian blooline. Among the couple's posterity are a daughter, Tina Knowles, and a son (name unknown; he is Angela Beyince's father). Their grandchildren are Beyonce Knowles and Solange Knowles, Angela Beyince and great-grandson Daniel Juelz Smith Jr. Beyonce's first name is a tribute to the Beyince family name. The rare surname, Boyance, is of French origin and faces extinction since there are no male descendants in Tina Knowles' immediate family to pass on. The Boyance family is still prominent in New Iberia, Vermillion and Lafayette Parishes today.History on Tina Knowles French Creole heritage: Name: Derouen, Odlia Broussard Date Of Death: March 31, 1929 Time: 4:00 P.M.

I am a Mexican Creole and one thing I do know that in our family its like a Gumbo. We have family from Black to White. A real Creole looks mix. French Creole looks more white a Black Creole is Black but mix in there background. We have Philopino Creoles, Mexican Creoles, Puerto Rican Creoles we all mixed up. Beyonce mother is Creole and she did not marry another Creole so that is why Beyonce and Solange looks more black but they are mix in there background Creole. Solange looks black but she married a mulatto and her child pulled alot of French/White genes only mix people know about mixture. Beyonce baby looks Latino but in a few years the baby will look mix black b/c thats just apart of the mixture b/c of her father. Creoles tend to mix in now but back in the days Creoles married Creoles to keep to mixture going. True Creoles carry French surnames not slave names like Jackson, Thomas, Johnson, and Jerfferson etc..People in Los Angeles ask me what are you? I say I am Mexican mix with French Creole. Most blacks say Creole thats not a race you black. I know where my roots came from Creole can be a race and culture just like the Jews/Jewish people if Creole was black we would look like Oprah but we dont we look different and people cant pin point what we are. I am proud to be Mexican but I am proud to be French Creole (My black blood gave me curves and curly hair, my Indian blood gave me a red btful tone, my Chinesse blood gave me my btful eye shape, my Spanish blood gave me a fighting spirit and dance, and my French and German blood well the color shows under my feet LOL....my boobs lol..I look like Beyonce and Jlo put together and because I am mix I am BTFUL! So if you dont know about Creoles learn about them goto www.frenchcreole.com READ a book called Creole by Sybil Kein on the cover of that book are true Creole people. Want to hear the French Creole language goto www.youtube.com and type in "Time to Learn French Creole" PLEASE people dont hate educate your minds FYI Haitian Creoles are different from Lousiana Creoles the language is different.I love Mariah Carey but she was mix and then she dated Luis Miguel and she searched for her fathers Latin family and she meet her Latino side. Now she married to a black man and she wants to call herself Black regardless she can be white Monday, Black Tuesday, and Latina on Wednesday who cares b/c she is all of those races she looks what she is a white woman that is mix latina/black look at her twins mix blood is strong sometimes ;)

My name is Donald m Guillory i am a film maker who is about to launch the final stages of planning to shoot the movie in Houston, Texas and Louisiana "The house of Derion" aka Agnèz BeyincéAKAAgnès DeRouen (1909 – 1984)I am looking to interview anyone who knew my subject when she lived! If you do please email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.orgThank You!
Does she have a Certificate of Indian Blood from the Bureau of Indian Afairs? I am European and Native American and adopted and I have one.
As a creole girl myself, why do we have to let her lie? Didn't she ALSO want to be latina at some point? Now she wants to be creole as well. Look at her family. No Spanish nor creole in either one. Her baby is Spanish because she got her from a Spanish woman (Her dad was caught looking for a spanish baby). Not only that but she also went through a bit where she was into the Spanish sound. Un chico, that song with Shakira, etc. And the ONLY thing native about her is her weave. I am offended as a Mexican, creole, and cherokee woman. Be yourself. We have NEVER seen Beyonce without weave. Lies lies LIES!!!
Beyoncé is creole. She is mixed, L'Oreal Paris wanted to highlight the diversity of her ethnicity as a way to emphasize the diversity of their makeup shades. Just leave Beyoncé alone, I'm not a Beyoncé fan, I'm Jamaaican and mostly only listen to dancehall music, so you cannot say I'm biased. You people need to but out of her business. It's always something, get out of the peoples' lives and focus on your own !!
She is still talented and beautiful. However, she is NOT French and needs to stop. -__- She said numerous times on Oprah etc. that she makes Creole food, her family is Creole and her cousins speak it, and she wishes she had learned; and even did a song for Haiti after the earthquake. In the end you'll NEVER see her vacationing or buying a house near Haiti OR Louisiana to learn Creole meanwhile her nephew is learning French in France, she lives there and tries to speak French. Hispanics have this problem too. They rather tell someone their ancestors are from SPAIN instead of saying what they really are. Hispanics too are a mixed race. None of us should have to say we're from Europe to feel high class or beautiful. IT'S A SHAME we've succumbed to this.
Shout out to J.Lo's commercial that said 100% Puerto Rican NOT African, Taíno, White. Werd up
