I've talked to several black guys who will refer to Jessica Alba as white or looking similar or closer to a white person. She is mixed half white half mexican. She looks mixed to me with whiter features but I would consider her mixed not white. One said that beyonce is prettier because she's black and I said I thought Jessica Alba was prettier, he then snapped, said she was white and told me to shutup. The other said she looks like they do (caucasian). To me yes she is part white but very mixed. I would say equally hispanic and white in appearance. Why would they even say this?
