Keyshia Cole Responds to Bi-Racial Backlash


Last week Keyshia Cole went out of her way to identify bi-racial in an awkward exchange on 106 and Park about her recent appearance on Black Girls Rock [click here if you missed that].

Keyshia clears up the misconceptions, kinda...

Well people just took her words as she said them. She is the one who said she's biracial on 106th and Park. No one asked her if she was biracial she just offered that up. I wish she would just stop.

Being biracial is an issue that is rarely discussed - especially in the media. The only other person to even address it was Mariah but she did it in a whiny victimized way.

why is she saying she is biracial when her mother is a crack ho who has slept with half of oakland??

She knew damn well what she said was wrong.Bitch YOU said it on 106 & Park. Nobody twisted your words. and she knew damn well what BlackGirlsRock Organization is all about. I really wish black folks wake up and stop supporting these dumb ass celebrity. Most of these muthafuckas need to be knocked high off their throne.

Maybe she is biracial, my god. What is the problem. She marry a black man, he too hood, she raised in the hood, she too ghetto. She say she biracial, she just disowned her race. People please think before you speak.

When she goes to fill out that application at the McDonald's and they ask about race it won't say are you bi-racial, it will say Black, White, Indian, and other. Girl you and your Mama need to stop with that Keyisha daddy is italian...B-TCH Keyisha daddy buys crack whore's and he gave you 20 dollars for some special attention, so you and Keyisha need to chill with all that nonsense. You can't even remember all of your kids names and you gave birth to them, HOW IN THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO REMEMBER WHO OR WHAT RACE ONE OF YOUR TRICK'S WAS. Frankie name all of your kids in order from oldest to youngest...I thought not.

Being bi-racial isn't that huge a deal anymore. There are a lot of bi-racial entertainers now who everyone knows that they are and no one makes a big deal about it because no one cares. The shit storm flying at Keyshia has nothing to do with "bi-racial" itself. It's because she has no idea what her father is and then also that she'd wonder why she'd be asked to be involved with a black program.

Anonymous said...

You want to take part in "All Girls Rock" Keyshia? Why don't you have your manager ask MTV and the Grammy's if you can perform? Maybe VH1 would like to show your reality show? Maybe some of those local white R&B music promoters would like to set up a concert for you.

When will these light skinned black people learn? If you are not 100% white, you are not white! I guess Keyshia Cole and Alicia Keys have never heard of the one drop rule. Keyshia, baby, you are black PERIOD! I'm sick and tired of these light skinned black stars trying so hard to kiss the white man's ass. This goes double for Halle Berry!

Anonymous said...

As I've been at other blogs and read other takes on the issue there have been discussions about her being able to do a DNA test. She can't really do that because she would need a male member from her fathers line to get a conclusive test done. Even if they break her DNA down it still won't tell much of anything because most African-Americans are of mixed race from the past. So it's possible for a black person to take one of those tests and be found to be 10 to 50% white even though both of their parents were black. Condi Rice and Tom Joyner were both found to be 50% white even though both of their parents were black.

A part of being black is based on your reality and Keyshias only reality has been the black community. Why would she take issue with a black group wanting to uplift black women when she's lent her name to BET projects that have made black women look bad?

Anonymous said...

Keysha, please stop while you are behind. Everyone one heard what you said. Stop being defensive. For you to go from saying I'm bi-racial to I don't know who my daddy is. My Question to you is why say u r bi-racial in the first place???????

You going on twitter with those posts trying to insult everyone's intelligence just shows how truly ignorant u r, but something tells me u truly don't care...

Trick Tramp Slut said...

Pretty much everyone today is mixed, there is not that many 100% of any race so....moving on to a bigger question...WHY DO THE FUCK SOME OF US BLACK WOMEN THINK WHITE, BLONDE HAIR Looks good on us? It makes us look like trick, tramp, cheap....does not go with any skin color but white!

Anonymous said...

Her Twitter statements just make her look even more uneducated and delusional. Now granted, when I look at Keyshia, I identify her as socially and culturally black, however, she does have features that could support her being bi-racial. When I think of BLACK, I honestly see brown-skin and kinky hair; more African aesthetics. Granted, many Black people come in all shades and have different features, but it's obvious she is mixed with something, as that specific bloodline is more prominent in her skin type and grade of hair.

Your Ass is still black when it comes to record sells. The italians aren't buying your shit and neither are those bi-racial people. What you need to be worrying about is if your husband is going to stay with you acting all crazy and shit. Now I see why Jeez said what he said about you in that interview that he did a couple years back...he said that you were immature and had a F-CKED up attitude...well he didn't say those words I did, but you get the picture. You need to be happy that anybody even still knows what your name is. Now that Mannie has moved on to where the money is you just seem to be not so famous anymore. You better go overseas and make some of that foreign money, cause we aren't really that happy with you right now.

I honestly think that people need to stop saying that "All Black people are mixed". While I'm sure some Native Americans and Europeans mixed with African slaves, it still doesn't negate the fact that at the end of the day, your ass is BLACK; not "mixed". I also think that some Black people love telling others that they are mixed because for them, it makes them feel superior to those who identify as ONLY BLACK. It's almost like some Black people are trying their hardest to run away from anything aesthetically Black. I see it from the long, straight weaves, to the colored contacts, nose contouring and skin lightening creams.

Don't not know or do not know??? 2 different meanings keyshia..and if u do not know how can you claim biracial???? There's hundreds of thousands of black people with "good hair" and light skin that are not biracial. Genetics are a crazy yet intriguing thing. And how do we know keyshia even has "good hair" with all the new and improved hair products available anyone can have "good hair". The term "good hair" is ignorance in its truest form. I really wish we would stop using it. Hair is hair and if u take care of it, it will do what u want it to and will be "good" lol

GOOD HAIR for blacks is hair that is NOT NAPPED UP AND KINKY. Wavy, big curls and straight that is soft to the touch is considered "good". STOP ACTING LIKE YALL DONT KNOW OR ITS WRONG TO LIKE HAIR LIKE THAT.

MOST OF YOU BALD, WEAVE WEARING, NAPPY HEADED SLORES WOULD GIVE YOUR RIGHT OVARY FOR THAT TYPE OF TEXTURE OF HAIR.

I'm not sure if Keyshia knows what she is. I don't see her being biracial, I see her being a light-skinned black female. Keyshia has been in the industry for a long time and unless her possible biracial heritage is a new discovery, she hasn't said a word about it ever.

I honestly think she said that to have people get a bit more interest in her and nothing less.

First off,

90% of BLACK AMERICANS ARE ATROCIOUS (my opinion)

Secondly,

I am not a fan of this ghetto scoundrel, however, if she is indeed bi-racial then she has every right to claim non-black. Bi-racial/multi-racial people are NOT BLACK.

Someone said if you are filling out an application you have to select black? WRONG. I encourage ALL BI-RACIAL people (that is mother and father are 2 different races, whether it's Asian and black, white and Asian, black and white, Indian and white. (You are only bi-racial if YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER ARE 2 DIFFERENT RACES) I encourage all of you mixed people to select OTHER. Never check off black. You bi-racial people do not let these black people tell you you are black, because you ARE NOT and you know you are not.

The fact that Keyshia (again a person I do not like) felt the need to back track is appalling. Keyshia if you are reading this, Do not let these black American strangers dictate to you who you are. If your dna is that of 2 races then you are bi-racial PERIOD.

You can be mixed race and look 'white' example: Cash Warren (Jessica Alba's husband) and you can be mixed race and look 'black' Kenzo (Kimora Lee's son) but that doesn't make you black.

I really don't give a damn what people call themselves these days. The common thread has been claim all that may flow thru your veins to lesson the black in you to others. People simply want to be more and this is just one way a lot of black people try to show how different and special they are. In other words..." Fuck That!!! I ain't all nigga, I've got some good blood flowing thru me, like Asian, Latin, Indian, and especially that good white blood, so it's not all bad for me."

Besides, I'm not the one burning crosses in front of people's home. I'm not the one over looking my non white employees to benefit the "Superior" race. I'm not the one who raped black slaves and diluted their bloodline. I'm not the one advocating full blooded Aryan bloodline and absolutely no mix racing. I'm not the one walking around feeling, knowing, and flexing my privileged European "greatness". I'm not the one expecting all non-whites to bow down to me, fall back and wait until I throw their kind a bone.

I'M JUST NOT THE ONE!!! Peace out!

Claiming to be Bi-racial does not deny anything but acknowledges two or more races that you are or believe to be. What is the issue? And yes, her biological mother may be a crack ho, but if she conceived Keyshia with anyone other than a black man, Keyshia is in fact "Bi Racial" = more than one race.

Kesh, yeah every girl rocks, but it's just the black ones that get over sexualized, stepped over for other women by their own men, & considered angry just by their sheer existence.

If she has a white father then she does have the right to identify herself as bi racial. I hate when people want to make that decision for others.

SoHo, NY said...

What is she angry about?

Well let's dissect this question for a minute...

She may very well be angry at the fact that bi-racial are constantly pigeon holed into believing that they are black when they ARE NOT BLACK. Black Americans always use that slavery BS argument that has already been exposed and to put to rest. Not every black person is descendant from a slave. FACT. Not every mixed person is 'fair skin' FACT. There are full blown Africans who are fair skin FACT.

Although I am not 'mixed' I do understand the plight of the bi-racial individual. How is that you may ask? well it is no different then the plight of the dual nationality of a person. Well what is the dual nationality of a person? If I am an African born in France then I am French speaking national of African descent so I am BOTH African and French and can choose to identify with one or the other OR BOTH. But I cannot deny one and claim the other.

Bi-racial people should not deny one side and keep claim the other. They should embrace both sides but if they feel more comfortable with one side and choose to become that then so be it.

The beauty of it all is that you have the 'best of both worlds'. As the saying goes 2 is always better then 1. Keyshia may not be bi-racial because she does not have the 'aura' of someone who is bi-racial. And yes I have been meaning to chime in on this 'black girls rock' debacle. What pure and utter garbage this is. I can see why Keyshia did not know about this. Um how about black Americans (should be women by the way) stop detaching themselves in creating these 'black only' type of crap like Essence magazine, BET etc. I would choose to be on the cover of ELLE over Essence anyday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you serious?!!! o__O

With all that black women have been through and to end up STILL today in 2012 being put down, let down, dogged out, made to feel less beautiful and intelligent than women of other races. Sadly other women of color can surely understand, but "Black Girls Rock" gives black women a platform to be encouraged, appreciated, unified, glorified, and all else promoting self-esteem, pride, education, black beauty, and strength to move on and progress beyond the negative stereo-types, the barricades, and all the many difficult endeavors ahead.

Sadly So, I've often heard many say... Black women are at the bottom of the totem-pole. Below even our black men. And it's something you will see a lot on many urban black blogs...meaning this is the opinion of many black people. This makes me very upset and concerned about our future queens. Will they accept what the world is telling them or will a few good black women step up and guide them to a world of self-esteem, pride and success? This show is only one way of doing that. Don't get me wrong. I support all races that get together and learn who they are and why they should have pride to go on to become successful people, but it's definitely not something that is common within the black race. So I support this show. After all...We are the true Mothers of the Earth. Is it too much to ask for one measly hour of positive acknowledgement?

@7:04PM you are right about what you are saying, but this is also a fact!! Keyshia's biological father Tyrone Thompson Her biological dad is a mixture of African American,Anglo Saxon,French,Native American(Choctaw) and Vietnemse! He is NOT Italian!!
He is not deceased!Mr.Thompson can be googled regarding his search for his youngest daughter Keyshia!! (Keyshia Cole,father maybe DNA its also on youtube!!) @8:24PM Keyshia would be pleasnatly suprised about her biological father's side of the family and their accomplishments!! Keyshia has her biological's dad texture hair,his gap(she had her's closed) his complexion. He is also an artist!! it's sad that she dosent care to know the man that gave her life. She needs to know he did not turn his back on her! and for all of the people with that low,low mentality he doesnt want anything from Keyshia and Frankie, only a DNA!!

Nope. I'm not falling for it. She didn't expect people to react the way we did. Keyshia denounced her blackness as if being black isn't good enough.

@ 4:03pm the way you described "good hair" is like that of a bi-racial person, or some black people as well. Now you refer to black women as "nappy headed" and you say that it's not good hair- Wrong! it is if she knows how to take care of it. I could care less about the race of a person, even white girls who don't take care of their hair could have bad hair(example) overprocessed with dye, and they get perms too. Comments like some of what you said is the reason black girls/women want to claim being mixed with something because the words you choose to use make it seem like being just black is something vulger.

You remind me of the Jewish mayor of the Lodz Jewish ghetto who was appointed by the Nazis as an overseer. This idiot was at the Nazis hip and had his own people sent to gas chambers!!! You know what those Nazis did to him in the end? They put that trader and Nazi ass kisser on the next train to Auschwitz!! Him and his whole family was sent to the gas chamber!! He was never their equal in the Nazis eyes!! You are a person of color and your considered to be an animal to most whites in the US and Europe!! You are a nigger to them and they would be damn if they have to share anything with your nigger ass!!! Just ask Obama about that....you see how those white folks reacted when he was reelected again!!! You see all those people take to social blogs whining about having that "nigger" in the white house for 4 more years!! The same whites you idolize want to separate from the US because a man of color is still in the white house!!! You might also want to step your self hating ass over to Youtube and check out the videos of how the neo-nazis want to get rid of Jews, African niggers, American niggers, spics and chinks!!! Look how the people in Israel is attacking those Africans and blaming them for unemployment and rising crime rate. Look this shit up because this shit is a FACT!!

@4:03 PM I always cringe when I hear black folks say "good hair." I think it's a very lame expression to use when describing hair. It sounds very dumb.
The opposite of good is bad; therefore, a person that doesn't have "good hair" (straight, curly, soft) has "bad hair" (kinky, nappy)? Wrong. Nappy hair isn't bad hair. It's just a texture. Bad hair is ungroomed hair, dirty hair or dandruffy hair.
I'm a black woman with kinky hair. Never wore weave, never had a perm or a relaxer. During my teens and young woman years I've always had thick, course, long black hair. The brothas loved it and I loved it (and I still get compliments). All three of my sisters had thick long hair, too.
I wouldn't give up anything on my body for straight curly hair. My answer to that statement is a resounding NO. I'm confident and happy with the hair and ethnicity God gave me.

@1:03

'Kissing the white man's ass' you say! LOL Unbeknownst to you white people actually favor me more than the black Americans! I've had a few scoff but in hindsight that was more motivated by jealousy rather then hate. But this dialogue is NOT ABOUT appealing to white people. This dialogue is about coming to terms with ones identity.

Bi-racial/multi-racial individuals are not limited to just one sect, they do not, and should not have to reveal themselves as just being 'black'. I have bi-racial people in my family and they are NOT black. They can easily walk into a room and everyone would know they are ambiguous and they are beautiful!(off topic)

Getting back to your comment, why would you use the Holocaust as an example when

1) It has absolutely nothing to do with the issue at hand

2) 'Traitor' how can I be a traitor when I am not black I am African.

3) Self hating is more along the lines of I hate SoHo,NY (self) because I am hostile, difficult to get along with, not wealthy, single etc AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH racial makeup. (not any of these traits just hypothetically speaking of course)

The illustrious word 'nigger' agh that is a term that I personally am unfamiliar with as I have already explained. If I was indeed a 'nigger' then I wouldn't have attractive, well off white men attend to my needs as they would see me as 'nigger'. Obama who is bi-racial is not hated because of his skin color, he is hated because of the way black Americans choose to carry themselves and blemish the black race! I have seen plenty of 'racist' comments and I happen to agree with it! Does that make me racist? No I don't think so.

african and black folks are two completely different groups of people, don't let the features fool you.

se@2:26 Well said! Your comment was very well said especially the examples you gave. It's just like the situation with the Chinese and Filipinos. In this case the Africans are the Chinese and the filipinos are the black Americans NOT the same thing but like a 'variation'. Anyway I don't think SoHo means any harm she is just baffled by the ignorance many black Americans display!

If she has a white father then she does have the right to identify herself as bi racial. I hate when people want to make that decision for others.

I swear a lot of people don't have reading comprehension skills these days. Did you not read what she said on Twitter? She doesn't know who her father is at all, so therefore she doesn't know what race her father is either. This means she only believes she's bi racial because of her light skin and hair type. This is why people are so irritated by her remarks.

Just because you're a light skinned black woman doesn't make you mixed (sure we all have something in us other than black) but you're not considered Bi-Racial just because. I'm a brown sister with a nice grade of hair my sister is Hi Yellow (like Keyshia cole) with an even better grade of Hair and she doesn't go around telling folk she's Bi-Racial (in the bloodline sure like I said i'm sure there is something there but SO WHAT) you're black be proud of it. There are PLENTY BLACK WOMEN with a "white" features (whatever you consider those to be) Pointed nose, thin lips, soft(er) hair, Every black person in America (or anywhere) DON'T have KINKY NAPPY HAIR (GET REAL).. It to me would make since if she knew for SURE who her pappy was before claiming something or someone that didn't give 2 cents about her! an Italian man name Sal (how common is that) Really: think about it

What kind of idiot would say they're bi racial, then in the same breath say my mom is black and I don't kno who my father is???

Anonymous said...

First of all i'm biracial and what she said makes no sense how can you claim to be biracial but not no your father or try to find him.... and why would you question doing black girls rock? Your mama.... she black, Your foster mom..... she black, you were raised as .... a black individual, your husband... he black, Your siblings, if you look at there names... they are black too and even if you think your biracial you should ignore one said because thats what gives you the title biracial.. Some celebrities only play the black card when they need black supporters

The black gene is the most dominant. FACT!!!!! That's the way it is and it doesn't take a genius to figure that out.So stop with all the false doctrine and brainwash please stop it! The only purpose they serve is to devide. Even if you have 0.001% black,quess what? You're still Black. I believe the majority of people on this earth are black but its hidden that's whythey create these titles to separate because if we unite and stop falling for these sub groups guess what? Play time is over and it's a wrap . You're not 100% white? You're black- not biracial or any other there's no middle.

Why she ain't try to figure out her nationality last year when she attended the event? I'm lost...Keyshia shut up!! You BLACK!! Lol that statement was soooo irrelevant, and believe it or not somewhat offensive. The fact that you were being honered on being a black girl that rock, whether you were light skin or chocolate, should have been enough right there..a thank you to BET and the foundation should have been all that was said. Now u look dumb pointing out the obvious..YES we kno your mother's black and your father is absent..smh..u get a life boo!!

@2:43...that is false.

Everyone is not mixed. Firstly, it's impossible. Secondly, it's one of the biggest lies and misconceptions told. A.k.a, mental traps.

Anonymous said...

the everybody is mixed myth is there to desensitize you to race mixing. in other words: why not date a white woman/man, you're part white anyway.

for me, gimme a black woman or get the hell away from me.

It is virtually impossible for everyone to be mixed. One of the biggest lies told by your oppressor is that everyone has his blood. Most black people are not mixed with anything. I suggest you read the book titled, "They Were There Before Columbus". Stop falling for the mental traps.

@3:13PM "It's a lie that everyone is mixed", I don't know what you mean by everyone. It is true that most Black Americans have euro blood, that's just a fact. You negate all the black women who were raped during and after slavery when you say that...Now a days we speak upon biracial and mixed race as its new but the white men was mixing it up since the first boat left the coast of Africa. I read slave narratives and research slavery and its hard to find where there were no rapes and no mulattos.
In 1860 there were 600,000 half black and white babies estimated to have been born. That's probably more than the amount that our born now. The white men goal for impregnating black women was to see himself in the offspring, more so than increasing the amount of slaves or there desires, simply white supremacy and the blackest most African women were the ones most desired to bore their half white children, to take black to something other, they felt God like when those African women gave birth to lighter skinned children, their white mark on the Black race. I have always known that white men secretly desire dark black women, not all but a lot of them do...the darker the better. Oddly enough it seems like white society favors lighter skinned blacks. But Porn tells the truth, Look at any porn with a dark skin woman and its white men in the comment section who always talking about wanting to ejaculate inside of the girl, wanting to impregnate her..it never fails..they don't say that on any black porn only the ones with the darkest black women..things tend to never change. And sadly enough that is one of the main reasons most Black Americans have white in them.

The ONLY way Keyshia Cole could be called "Black" is
via the racist-'One-Drop Rule' -- which was created by
racial-supremacists in order to degrade BLACK lineage.
.
This means that any BLACK person who supports the
('black-lineage degrading' and) racist-'One-Drop Rule'
either has no self-esteem, is insane or is an idiot.
.
The racist-'One-Drop Rule' was banned in the
U.S. in 1967 -- SO there is NO SUCH THING AS
A so-called 'LIGHT-SKINNED BLACK' person.
