The Rock Equally Proud of Black and Samoan Heritage


Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson sets the record straight after a fan says he doesn't identify as Black...

It all started during a discussion about wrestling.


After another person chimed in asking, "Ever heard of The Rock?", The Rock jumped in to correct another fan who said he didn't count because he doesn't identify as Black.


The Rock's mother is Samoan and his father is Black and was also a professional wrestler.

Dear Black Folks: Not all Bi-Racial people want to be identified as Black and that's cool too. The one drop rule was NEVER invented by us. Let these people live how they want and stop trying to force the Tiger Woods and Cardi Bs down our throats as being Black. We are the only race of people so willing to embrace anyone with a bit of our phenotype. STOP inviting people to the cookout who don't want to come. Let's celebrate those of us who are Black and proud!

I am full blooded Black woman. Nevertheless, if my parents happened to be both Black and White, why would I deny one group and not the other? That's some crazy shit and folks really need to get off the gas with that one.

"I'm not black, I'm O.J." This man is not black and proud. He doesn't even have black love interests in his projects. Well, he did in Ballers, but the physical aspect of their relationship was implied and it only lasted 3 episodes.

He's not black. He's bi-racial or Samoan as he says. This 1 drop rule is stupid. I respect all individuals but we ain't gonna act like we fighting the evil together. When there's black issues, these "I'm black too" peoples are nowhere to be found. But us blacks stay fighting for everybody ����

I love being a nubian woman, and instill in my children to love themselves and don't bring home nobody, that can't use our comb or knows nothing about shea butter and curry goat.

Y'all better recognize. Makes no difference if one of your parents isn't Black. If the child *looks* like a Black person then he or she will be treated like a Black person.

Obama's mother was White but that didn't stop security from following his ass when he went into high-end department stores. Didn't stop the po-po from pulling his ass over because he looked Black. Didn't stop the U.S. Congress from treating him like he was crook and liar while he was President. Thank goodness his mama understood racism and knew what Barack was up against and as a result he was prepared to deal with it all AS A BLACK MAN. He wasn't denying his White ancestry. He was surviving in a world that didn't give a damn about his White mama.

If your child looks Black, then do them a favor and raise them to identify as a Black person. Otherwise, they will spend a lot of money on therapy.

It's not about denying your ancestry. It's about survival.

JLO, The Rock, Cameron Diaz, XTine all of them turn white once they make it. Name one black romantic co-star any of these people had in mainstream movies?! Xtina is an exception.

@ 1:08 wayment all those names you just rattled off are latino (except for the rock), who dafuk cares if they had a black co star or not?

And are they writing or producing movies themselves, no the're auditioning, they should only audition for parts that give them a POC as a romantic interest??
again DAFUK??

Why would Cameron Diaz have to have a black love interest?

You are 100% correct. I never liked or worshiped the Rock. Team white supremacy can keep him.

Although his father is black he wasn't born here. You all really sound bitter as fuck because he isn't talking, walking and acting all Black Power.

When you all that are actually black, grew up black can show solidarity and unity orhers will take you seriously. Until then nothing will change just because you're complaining about what a half black person does.

I think one of the reasons why so many people say Rock doesn't identify as black is because everytime you see him out he has so much Samoan pride. Not only does he NOT hide it, but he shows it any chance he gets. His dances, his tattoos, everything. Now, not saying he has to wear a pick and a black power t-shirt, but he seems to play up one and neglect the other.

I have NEVER met a Samoan that didn't consider themselves as Black. Most Somoans, Polynesians, Fijians, even some Hawaiians identify as Black. The real difference is we don't have our own ancestral culture - just pop culture. We set the tone for it. Africans love our culture but don't claim us.
Idk if it's funny or sad...

They are fine as hell too. Samoans are yummy.

I've never met a Samoan that classified themselves as black.

Dwayne has every right to be proud of his Samoan heritage. Obviously doesn't bother his black father.

No, it does bother his black daddy at all. His daddy probably wishes his black ass wasn't born black. White folks can have and claim the Rock all day everyday. Fuck him!

@ 6:34 - I grew up in Hawaii, and still live here. Not ONE Samoan that i have EVER met.... and that's quite a few here, have considered themselves black. EVER! They have a lot of Samoan pride, and consider themselves SAMOAN.

You act like this is James Brown 'Say it loud! I'm black and I'm proud!'

Go have several bitter seats!

Halle Berry claimed her black heritage and still got shitted on by the black community. Her father was absent which is what most niggas do best ..... be absent. Why people get so upset at with someone because of their parents decisions is beyond me. I can't comprehend it and won't try. All I know is this man can be proud of his Samoan heritage while still be proud to be black without yelling it to prove to others.

What you all need to worry about is the dark skin black man who have no problem calling black women with darker skin tones ugly all on social media and shit.

Advice from Auntie said...

In GI Joe the Rock's wife and kids were black. Get shorty his charter is black and he wore an afro.

He's black his name is Dwayne Johnson and he like ugly white women.

Cameron Diaz and JLO are not black. They are of Puerto Rican and Cuban heritage so why would they identify as black or have black love interests? As for the Rock and other bi-racial celebs, they're free to pick and choose their love interests like anyone else. If they don't want to identify as black, oh well. Let's keep it moving.

Don't the USO twins identify as Black? Also have dark skin Black wives?

No, if you got a white parent your ass is white. Period we don't think the same. White people think dead people are braindead. And I know that white people are braindead people and dead people are deceased.

Ronnie Williams a pedophile that controls scientologist, thinks white people are dead people when really white people are braindead people.

Ronnie controls the dreams of paranoid scizophrenics I control the dreams oflesbians. Studs are not lesbians, they're braindead.

Studs are braindead pedophiles and Ronnie Williams a married braindead pedophile that hates herself controls them, Ronnie's a Scientologist an assimulitor to poverty. Because white people own Scientology and white people are braindead and braindead people can not own anything. Studs are experimental apes, they are the nigger community and studs chose slavery over lesbians.

Ronnie is a rape alligator and those charges are dementable. Dreamer accounts are dementable, Ronnie is not illuminati.pedophiles can't be in the illuminati, white people can't be in the illuminati. Ocie is the president of the illuminati.
