Sofia Richie Says People Don't Know She's Black


R&B icon Lionel Richie's daughter Sofia talks about how she deals with racists after revealing most people don't realize she's Black...

Sofia tells Complex Magazine
“I’m very light, so some people don’t really know that I’m black. I’ve been in situations where people will say something kind of racist, and I’ll step in and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, well, you’re light.’”
“That still doesn’t cut it, buddy. It’s 2016 — you better get your s— together before you get slapped out here.”

So I guess we are supposed to feel assured now that she has publicly claimed Black AFTER that racist Beiber boy dumped her. Yah okay!

She is not "black"; she is biracial and color-struck negroes AND negrettes all cape for these mutts which is why people like her can get away with this fuckery!

hey....at least she admitted it...unlike Nicole Richie who acts like she aint got one drop of negro blood in her system.

She's already worked out that by announcing she's 'black' she shoots to the top of the casting list for black female acting roles. People like her are only black where it benefits them. Mixed is not black.

WTF she doesn't even face the problems of normal society let alone a real black person go away!

I'm confused at "mixed is not black" because (as celebrities go) Halle Berry, Vanessa Williams and even Mariah are all biracial but I really don't see too many people denying them and their claim of being black. Honestly to a greater or lesser extent we're all mixed, nowadays.

Biracial is not a race.
Mixed is not a race.
Her father is Black.
She's Black.
Point blank. Period.

There use to be a time Black were proud to say they are Black no matter how light it dark they were. Now everybody wanna be everything but black.

If the race war breaks out tomorrow, they will be throwing your "mixed" ass in the same pen as the rest of us.

@10:37 it's pro-blacks like YOU is the reason why negroes will accept anything and anyone in their causes (which goes nowhere)

This lil heffa is NOT black. She is BIRACIAL (meaning she makes up more than one race).

And if a race war broke out tomorrow, blacks will be killing OTHER blacks because theyre dysfunctional as fuck (like adopting this mutt into the negrosphere).

Comments are crazy.

If this young lady identifies as Black, despite having a non Black parent, then who is anyone to judge?

The overwhelming majority of Black people in the Americas have so called white DNA. So we are all mutts. And?

Who is so called "pure" today?

people think that skin color means a person feels a kinship to you. Right!!!I've met countless identifiable Black people who don't give two shits about Black anything. And I also know very light skin Black people, with two Black parents, who are ambiguous looking, who are Black militants.

By the ways, Vanessa Williams' parents are both Black. DNA will do what it does..........

The new agenda, by the powers that be, is to maintain the buffer between them, mainly white, and people of a darker hue. So THEY are sparking this not Black thing.

As someone already pointed out, perhaps under another entry, is that the Black community, in the Americas, always accepted all shades of the community once that is what they wanted. So, why is this new twist coming about, if historically it was not an issue? Who gains from stirring the pot?

People in the US kill me with this shit... if her ass or Zendaya left North America and went ANYWHERE else, they would not be Black, point blank. The one-drop rule only exists in the US and that wasn't made by Black people, it was made by slaveholders to justify owning their octoroon offspring instead of letting them pass into white society.

Nobody's denying her dad is Black but she isn't. This is not hard. Y'all know damn well that if an Asian/white mixed person looked really white and was talking about their Asianness, Asians wouldn't be like "OMG you're one of us!!"

It's possible to identify as both biracial and Black like Obama does, but this chick wears the same foundation as Eva Longoria and folks itching to claim her. At least Mariah got a voice LMAO. The fuck does this chick even do? She's a rich child best known for fucking Justin Bieber... hard pass.
