There's nothing that irritates me more. You are just as much white as you are black. I've noticed they love to make sure people know they are mixed, but claim black when it benefits them. Barack Obama is NOT black. Beyonce is NOT black. Rihanna is NOT black. Zendaya is NOT black. Alicia Keys is NOT black. Keri Hilson is NOT black. Serena Williams IS black. Lupita Nyong'o IS black. Gabrielle Union IS black. Kelly Rowland IS black. Oprah Winfrey IS black. Michelle Obama IS black. I'm tired of seeing biracials pass as black women on television shows, magazines, etc... Why can't they be white? Or just what they are... BIracial. (No hate against mixed people. I just don't understand why they claim something they are not.)

The average person identifying themselves as 'black' in the USA id about 1/4 European genetically.
"On average, the scientists found, people who identified as African-American had genes that were only 73.2 percent African. European genes accounted for 24 percent of their DNA, while.8 percent came from Native Americans."
"Most Americans with less than 28 percent African-American ancestry say they are white, the researchers found. Above that threshold, people tended to describe themselves as African-American."
About 80% of people identifying as 'black' have a significant European genetic component so who would be a 'true' black person in your estimation?1
