Ciara: I’m Not Black – I’m Of German, Creole And Irish Heritage!!!

: Well, well, well. MediaTakeOut.com has always considered R&B singer Ciara to be African American. But looks like we were wrong. According to Ciara’s official bio – which her people freely pass out to members of the press, the Atlanta singer is actually of German, Creole And Irish Heritage.

With a name like Ciara Princess Harris, we figured that she was just a regular ole’ Black girl. Who knew she was so multi-cultural…

If that's the case CiCi then all of us are mixed with something the way "Massa" was running from shack to shack. I dont understand why negros from Texas (bey & cici)get successful the media has to play them as something other than what they are and what they A$$ always will be which is Black. I bet if you go out here and act up and damage your image they will remind your A$$ quick what you are.

OK, Well the truth is I only reason supported her in the first place because I thought she was black. ( which by the way her DUMB a$$ IS ) I mean really it's not like she can sing or anything. She could make a good back up dancer for Beyonce and that's about it. To keep it really real the only reason I ever even gave her the time of day is because I was MISSING ALlYAH. And she copied ALIYAH"S style so well I said, 'ok I'll go for it until she says something stupid. Which bring us to today. Well that's it she get's NO more of my money. And if the Irish people knew of your black a$$ was claiming to be one of them they'd line up one by one to spit in your face. They don't play that!!! Silly B@tch!!


MLExperience

you all are getting mad because she doesn't want to call herself by your label. The label that you accepted by default. That's cool if you don't mind but what is wrong with acknowledging ALL of your heritage? The only issue I have with this is that she didn't mention the obvious. perhaps she didn't feel she had to. Regardless, it is her decision if she wishes to acknowledge all of her heritage seperately and distinctively. You all have the problem she doesn't. If she is telling the truth. Being of mixed heritage is just that... Because a person may have negroid ancestry ... that fact doesn't negate all of their other makeup. Then again some people are just not happy with anything. If a person is the color of onyx they are too black. If they are as fair as snow they are too white or not black enough. And this nonsense comes from the "black" community. Worry about who you are and what you are made up on and quit trying to label everyone else accrding to you and your limited mind.

She needs to stop. For real for real. Her and Beyonce. Pretty soon everybody will be saying oh I'm this that and part of the other too. Simply put, pretty much all of America is part something else. She's black. So what about the other stuff, I got it too, everybody that's commented so far's got it. Hmmm... Halle is half n half, put what does claim - African American. I'm not even a huge fan of Halle so you know this is a damn shame for me to be bringing her into the pic. Why can't people just be special because they are living the dream of being a superstar and traveling the world performing instead of trying to outdo each other with the "what I am" junk? Are they not proud to be of African American decent? Oh - but you want us to buy your records and support you in everything you do, right? B!tch please. Keep thinking your fans are dumb, you'll be back at home watching the awards instead of performing at them!

Once people get their passport stamped by us, many turn on us and turn their back on us for larger fame and fortune..When she first came out I doubt if she was telling people she was Irish,German, Creole and Sweedish...She was pretending she was black...LOL sHE would have never been accepted by MTV off the bat until she was given the seal of approval by black people...Now that she got it, shes telling us to kiss her skinny Irish azz...

Okay people it is cool that she may have mentioned that she has some other races in her mix...but if she really did say that she is not BLACK...then she is denying a part of her heritage and that is where I have a problem. If you gone claim your races then claim all of your races...I have see this girls mother and she definitely has more black in her than any other race...and for that she gets two thumbs down...which I don't like her azz anyway...cause like someone said above we know one thing she definitely is not and that is TALENTED...AND SHE DAMN SURE AIN'T NO AALIYAH...SO SHUT THAT BULLSH*T AFFORMATION DOWN!!!

@alawson you are so right about that...I've been to Boston and believe me the Irish are the most racist and prejudiced "people" I have ever encountered and they are proud of it too.. If Ciarra went to Boston and started telling people she was Irish, thats exactly what they'd do..They'd spit that green beer in her face and then beat her butt.

NAMASTE it's obvious by your statements you have never been to Germany. Since I have, I'll tell you they love black americans more than americans do, and they listen to black american music more than they listen to their own. That's why American black people are moving there in droves, to get away from the racism here. Actually, I have a feeling you've never been anywhere, so you wouldn't know that. "Now go a try to get a hit on the German or Irish charts!" She probably already has. p.s. Ciara never said "i'm not african american", MTO put those words in her mouth for the headline like they always do. she simply said what else she was mixed with, she never said she wasn't black.

the story above never once quotes ciara as saying that. the headline does, but they do that in all their headlines. even MTO isn't even really quoting her as saying that, because they don't have to, cause everyone assumes it anyway. MTO's headlines are not literal quotations. they state it as such to get people's attention. notice they never use quotation marks in their headlines so the artist can't say they quoted them as saying that.

@quamesh1 ARE U KIDDING ME! Black ppl are moving to Germany??!!?? The Germans on the whole are a filthy overly aggressive ppl. Their attitudes toward Black ppl are evident by their historical savage pludering of Central and South Africa. The enslavement and brutal torturing of millions of Black ppl at that country's hands just for profit was satanic. Now that Blacks have been financially subdued, with a world wide view as fifth class citizens and they are willing to listen to our music, silly negroes like you are appeased. F@CK the Germans and all the silly negroes hoping to be "mixed" with so called other "races". You fools have still not realized that GOD made BLACK the dominant color on earth for humans and other types of ppl are simply DILUTED versions of US. Every "humanbeing" on earth has a gene connecting them to AFRICA but not every "humanbeing" posseses a gene that connects them to Europe. It is from a Black woman that all "races" on earth have been created. Respect the power of God's true chosen and stop chasing after European cave dwellers. It's disgraceful!!

Did you know Kobe Bryant grew up in Italy, to where he knows how to speak fluent Italian. So, let me guess now Kobe not black either or Naomi Campbell is not black because she's born in London, England. MTO, stop starting BS rumors, and stop insulting your readers intelligence with this BS that an AFRICAN AMERICAN can't be born or raised in foreign country automatically means there not black.

@NYChatterbox People here seem to be confusing nationality and race together. You brought up the example of Vijay Singh, who says he is from Fiji, but not black. That is what he is. Fiji people are composed of Polynesians, Melanesian and Indo-Fijians, and he has every right to claim these. Just as a Ghanaian person will tell you that he is Asanti, before being Ghanaian, before being West African, before being African, before being black. African Americans have a long history in this country, with a strong culture and heritage. But as they identify themselves as black, a Zulu person will identify him/herself as Zulu before anything else. Tell me, if Charlize Theron, a South African, becomes a naturilised American citizen, will you call her an African American?

(sometimes lowercase) a person of mixed black and European, esp. French or Spanish, ancestry who speaks a creolized form of French or Spanish. 4. (usually lowercase) a creolized language; a pidgin that has become the native language of a speech community. Compare pidgin. 5. the creolized French language of the descendants of the original settlers of Louisiana. Compare Cajun. 6. Haitian Creole. 7. (usually lowercase) Archaic. a black person born in the New World, as distinguished from one brought there from Africa.

@mzarrogance I think it is as a result of system differences. As an American, one is inherently trained to look down on everyone else and believe in theirselves(hype). From where I am from, we try to look at everything. Its strange Americans complain about her kids not doing well in Sciences and other subjects but only test them in English and Mathematics(SATs). Before I graduated from Secondary(High) school, I had to do exams in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Geometrical Drawing, Geography and Calculus, and this is after having done three years of classes in all these courses apart from Calculus.

If you're born to two African American parents your race is black/heritage, but lets say now you're born in a foreign country your nationality is whatever country you're born to...Right. Again growing up in a foreign country does not subject you to a mixed/biracial/heritage. Hellllo you're still black, your nationality is just the country you're born in. But, in this situation Ciara was born in Austin Texas, she grew up in Germany....she's not mixed with German descant and her nationality is not even German.So, this notion that MTO is subjecting the readers with Ciara indirectly not claming her black side is BS. And for the people who think Ciara is being unfairly treated because she's claming her "mixed heritage", she can't claim something she's not.

ehifishy i agree, i get so tired of people confusing race and nationality. for instance, puerto rican is a nationality, not a race. they have different mixes coming from white(spanish), black(african), and the indigenous natives there, and a particular mix may be so common that puerto ricans tend to have a certain look, but it's still not just one race. it's composed of the same races as the rest of us, in different mixes. there are cubans with the same exact race mixes, but their nationality is cuban, not their race. black is not a nationality, it's a race. black people in america should call themselves american. black people from africa are african, but since africa is a continent and not a country, they would identify themselves as being kenyan, south african, etc. and an african person who nationalizes here is african-american. to call us african-americans is inconsistent. creole is not just one race, and neither is german, irish, or italian. there are black germans, and if a person says "i'm half german" they could still be all black because german doesn't have to mean white because german isn't a race, it's a nationality. to be creole is to be part black, it's not to be a whole other race. people kill me when they say, "i'm half-black and half-german". either say you're half black and half white or say your american and german, but don't pair a race with a nationality because that still doesn't tell us anything. youre german dad could be black, if you're born as a german citizen, you are german, regardless of your race.

I mean someone that is NATIVE Italian is considered white, . If you're black and you move to Italy, yeah you may your NATIONALITY may be Italian, but not your ethnicity/race, you'd still be considered African American. And about Charlize Theron- her NATIONALITY may be SouthAfrican, but her race/ethnicity is WHITE. Because white South Africans arent native to Africa. They are native to Europe which=white.

@semisweet I have a friend, who goes to Howard. Her parents are African American diplomats and she was born in the US. However, she grew up in South Africa and does not consider herself African American but South African.Will you chatise her? @AlwayzOnUrMind Neither are African Americans native to America. Charlize Theron was born in South Africa to South African parents and speak Africaans and Xhosa, languages very native to South Africa. That makes her 100% African: just as you are black probably born in the US( I don't know you, so don't take it as offensive), and call yourself African American. @prettylatina There are blacks that have generations of family in Germany, France and Britain, just like the United States. There are whites of dutch and British heritage, who have generations of families in South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe. These people are proud of their countries, just as an African American is proud of being an African American. One cannot have different rules for different people

I never said all African Americans where native to America. Thats why I dont call my race/ethnicity "American", cuz the only people that are truly "American" are native americans aka "indians".

CIARA NEED TO DO HER RESEARCH ON HER CREOLE CULTURE. I AM ALSO CREOLE, BUT I DO NOT GO AROUND NO CLAIMING THAT I AM NOT BLACK. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF CREOLE (HAITIAN CREOLE OR LOUISANA CREOLE) BUT EITHER WAY THEY ARE THE SAME MIX BASICALLY. CREOLE IS A MIXTURE OF AFRICAN, SPANISH, INDIAN, AND FRENCH. THATS FOUR RACES/CULTURES MIXED TO MAKE SOMEONE "CREOLE". SHE NEED TO READ SOMETIMES BEFORE OPENING HER MOUTH. HERE'S A STARTER FOR HER (AND I KNOW SHE READS MEDIATAKEOUT...SO SISTA READ!): WHAT IS A CREOLE? For many centuries, the word Creole has had as many as 30 known definitions. It is a fact that the word Creole had its origin in Africa, citing the countries of Senegal and Mali. In these areas it is believed that in the 11th century Creolism began. In search of new lands, ideas, riches, knowledge and to dispute the philosophers and historians, men became daring explorers. It is through their discoveries that these varying cultures co-existed in harmony to form the cradle of Creolism. It is documented in the annals of history, that the Creoles of Senegal, whether as freemen or as slaves, traveled directly from Senegal and Mali to Louisiana. Define Creole as individuals of African descent whose cultural roots have been influenced by other cultures such as French, Spanish, and/or Indian.

some people think the name of a country includes an ethnicity as well, some don't. some say the first people to inhabit a country are the only authentic people of that nationality, and some don't. some people think there are races and then there are nationalities, and the two are separate ideas. who really gets to decide which is correct? despite all this, MTO never once uses quotations to quote Ciara as actually saying "I'm not african american", because she probably never said it, and this whole thread is for nothing.

What about all the black teens and even adults that facilitated this success? Black is the dominate gene and it is actually a race. German and Irish arent races but nationalities.

She schooleed in South Africa, lived there, had only South African friends, knows the culture, watches DSTV (the satelite TV there), surports Ajax Capetown (A soccer club) and has her South African passport . She only returned to the United States to finish her college degree. She claims she is South African and she is rightly so and she inhibits everything South African. But Does that mean that she puts down everything American? No! There are many people, who grew up in places different from their nations of birth, and it is up to them to decide their heritage.

She hangs out with mostly her South African friends in her American college. She has a South African passport. Why can't she be South African?

C Oh I see how u living brother, tryna hide behind BELIZE CUZ U YELLOW! LOL Just kiddin man! But word, in a way we all mixed, but my whole thing with celebrities that are biracial is to just atleast honor your blackness. Especially the non-biracial black celebrities who flaunt white women around then blame black women for their shortcomings. Cuz they can fck all the white chicks they want, have all the pretty mixed kids for their white girls, but deep down inside, they have to remember that to most white people, they aint nothing but a N I GGER.

@mzarrogance Trust me, it is not all that serious (except working too hard at a young age). Besides, when you get to college, especially if you are an engineering, science or architecture major, your first two years are a breeze, because you know or have experienced basically everything being taught. Furthermore, you are more prepared for college, bacause back home, the secondary schools administer exams with both theory and multiple-choice questions, with the theory questions carrying more grade-weight. So many people don't get shell shocked when they do the exams in college in their freshman year.

@ehifishy, I understand where you're coming from. But her nationality is still South African. I'm a Nigerian American. I was born in America, I identify with black Americans. Shoot, I don't know how to speak my language. Most of my friends are Black Americans, I have been to Nigeria one time when I was ten years old stayed there for barely a month. But, you know what at the end of the day my ethnicity is still Nigerian and my nationality is still American. And I'm not going to say I'm a black American and denounce my Nigerian heritage because I relate to them more, graduated from an an HBCU school, and because most of my exs were black Americans. See, that's the difference between your friend and I, I know that I might not be all the way to in touch with my heritage, but I know who I am and more importantly I'm proud of who I'am and that's a Nigerian American. And for the record your friend can identify with being a South African, it's her choice, but in actuality she's still an American.lol You already know I have to end it with she's still American...smile

You were also shocked that I took three years of classes in all these courses, apart from calculus. Well, this is the West African education system (WAEC). Its a pain, when you are young, but your years in college are sweet. For instance, I never bought text books or went to class in Chemistry I, Physics I, Economics I and II and Calculus I, but still aced all those courses in college.

For those who are comparing this to Beyonce and saying that this is not getting any negative attention, read again. This story is getting just as much negative attention as Beyonce's story. The difference is just that because people say they are of a certain decent, does not mean they are saying they are not black. If the comment had been preceded with a statement saying I am not black, that would be a different story. Slaves went everywhere else before they came to the U.S. There are black people all over the world in almost every nation especially countries in Europe. Ciara never said this MTO just said that this was printed in a Bio somewhere. Beyonce is quoted as saying that she wishes she was born a Latina. The two things are totally different but believe me they are both getting the same negative attention.

I think MTO and most people on here don't understand the term Creole. So here's a brief definition from MSN Encarta Encyclopedia: Creole (people)- term first used in the 16th century in Latin America to distinguish the offspring of European settlers from those born elsewhere and from Native Americans. In colonial America the designation originally applied to any American-born descendant of a non-native person. The term—a French word believed to come from the Spanish criollo, which means “native”—has since acquired varying meanings in different regions and periods of history. By the 19th century Creoles were generally classified into two groups: white Creoles and Creoles of color. White Creoles were the descendants of early French, Spanish, or German settlers. Creoles of color were of mixed African and European heritage. So, as you've read, her dark completion is a attribute of her African ancestry. I think it would have been better if she was just described as Creole.

She is black....her edges say so.... This is what I found on the net: Ciara was born in Austin, Texas. She is the only child of Carlton and Jackie Harris. She grew up on army bases in Germany, New York, Utah, California, Arizona, and Nevada, since her father Carlton was in the United States Army.[3] During her teens, Ciara and her family settled in Atlanta.[3] Ciara said that watching Destiny's Child perform on a television program while staying home from school inspired her to pursue a career in music. Then, Ciara joined a girl group called Hearsay and worked on her songwriting.[3] The group recorded demos, but began to have differences. Eventually, she left the group, got a publishing deal, and found a "musical soulmate" when she met producer Jazze Pha.[3] Ciara graduated from Riverdale High School in Riverdale, Georgia in 2003 and was signed by LaFace Records executive L.A. Reid with the help of Jazze Pha. She began production on her debut album. Ciara co-wrote a demo with songwriter Sean Garrett, who was co-writer of Usher’s international hit “Yeah!”.[3]

Not only Blacks are brainwashed by the white race, its the whole fVcking world. Every race wanna be white. It is so sad we talk about each others nose if its too big and about our full figured lips that every race especially the White race trying hard too get. I NEVER HEARD A WHITE PERSON TALK ABOUT ANOTHER white person SKINNY LIPS OR LONG NOSE. We have asians trying to widen their eyes and jews getting nose jobs and our own. SOME PUERTO RICANS don't wanna face the fact that they have black blood flowing through their veins and SOME OF THEM are blacker or just as black as the africans in africa and not to forget to mention the kinky hair too. When people come over from other countries, they are not trying to fit in with the black race/SOCIETY. Its funny how in the blog about Flava flav and this story is a little similar . People THINK Mariah Carey and Mya ARE ATTRACTIVE. I'VE SEEN BLACK SISTERS THAT ARE NOT "MIXED" LOOK 30X'S BETTER THAN THEM BOTH.YES WE ARE BRAINWASHED AND I DO ADMIT I HAve BEEN BRAINWASHED also. YES BEYONCE, HALLE AND ALICIA ARE BEAUTIFUL, BUT WE THINK SO BECAUSE THEY ARE MIXED OR HAVE WHITE fEATUES. I don't KNOW if this story about Ciara is true or not but i just had to get that out.

@ehifishy You need to learn the difference between someones NATIONALITY someones RACE.. Charlize Therone or whatever her name is an African by invasion and being a child of settlers...She is not of the African race...You cant possibly be this dumb...But being that you as an African worship a white man as your God(Jesus) you are probably numbed down to your own identity and are harboring your own racial confusion... Because theoretically, if you acceot teh whte man as your God (Jesus) in your colonialist christianity religion, then you are subtley saying that you as the black man is the devil, and thusly you become your own enemy and your oppressors advocate...Especially if you are inundated in your oppressors educational systems.

@yesimherwife TRUE, But my point is, DONT CONSIDER YOURSELF MIXED WHEN YOU ONLY HAVE 2% OF ANOTHER RACE AND 98% OF BLACK IN YOU. For instance, if one of your parents is white and the other is black would of course mean that you have 50% of both races. ALL I am saying, if you have to go back in biblical times (I KNOW I'M EXAGGERATING NOW) just to see if you are "mixed" with some other race besides black, I would consider that TRYING A LITTLE TOO HARD TO BE MIXED. JUST FACE THE FACT THAT YOU ARE FVCKING BLACK.

And Tiger Woods doesnt even count in something like this...Hes never used his relationship with the black community to achieve his fame and wealth...Black people voluntarily adopted him because he had dark skin, big lips, nappy hair and big azz teeth...We just assumned the boy was black,but he soon set us straight and sealed the deal by marrying and mating with the whitest woman he could possibly find.. Thusly i have no problem with Tiger and I still root for him because even though he doesnt know hes black, Fuzzy Zoeller and the rest of white America for damn sure knows hes black... OJ didnt know he was black either, but after he killed that white woman and her boyfriend, he remembered that he was a black man... Wade in the water, Wade in the water, eventually something is going to get Tiger in the water and make him realize that regardless of how far he can hit a golf ball, he can get that rug pulled out from under him once white folks get tired of their golf n*gger...

she said it. She has that on her page. that she is creole, german, and Irish. I don't kno why she don't have black. but she says she's not black. now that wow. I don't understand that. isn't creole black. I mean I'm black, Indian, Italian but I'm still black. My mom was tellin me the same thing today. We might have all this stuff in our blood line but we are stuff black. Everyone has a lil mixture of something in them. but sayin she iz not black is a lil wild. but cici iz still the stuff tho.

If she is HALF black and HALF another race(s) than what is the problem in her claiming it? People are so closed minded and feel they have to push their views on others. She is being true to herself by acknowledging her other heritage. Why does should she feel like she has to pick and chose what race she is when she is a predominant mixture of different races? People free your minds from this ignorant old fashioned 1 drop rule mentality. Regardless of what she looks like, IF THE OTHER HALF OF HER ISN'T AFRICAN AMERICAN SHE ISN'T FULL BLOODED AFRICAN AMERICAN. RESPECT THAT AND STOP TAKING OFFENSE TO THAT FACT THAT HER PARENTS ARE OF TWO DIFFERENT RACES. RACIAL MIXING IS BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE IT BREAKS ALL BOUNDARIES and (if this is true) Ciara is a product from this.

Creole is NOT black. Creole is a mixture of African, French, Spanish and English. However, if your the old fashioned type that believe in the 1 drop rule white americans created then you probably think anyone mixed with African is ONLY black and everything else is obsolete.

I buy that she's mixed and proud of her mixed ancestry, but I don't buy not being black when she's from the south, was born into Black culture identity, formed and developed her craft within Black culture - she is a product of Black culture. Rosa Parks was part Native-American and Scots-Irish, Alicia Keys is biracial.....there are so many mixed people who are either mixed multi-generationally or have white/black parents that were indoctrinated into the Black identity in some way that didn't go and turn their back on, or Feel Superior, to Blacks/Darker skinned Blacks. Read this quote posted by someone who commented on a blog that discusses mixed race: [START QUOTE] I was born in Swaziland (small country in southern Africa) and spent part of my early childhood there. My mother is white American and my father is African. I could not stand the mentality of mixed persons like my self growing up there. Being a lighter shade of brown (coloured class, as its called) somehow made you better than your darker brothers (black class). How you figure, I thought? I learned early to distance myself from that. After all, it would imply that I am somehow better than my own father who gave me life and is a dark man... ridiculous! I exclusively socialized with non-mixed Africans. The mixed chicks (and guys) quickly learned that I was different and somewhat of a misfit. Oh well. My black brothers accepted me, though with a skeptical eye on me at times. Guess they couldn't quite understand my angle. [/END QUOTE]

To the lady who posted that she is Italian but everyone thinks she is White--someone said "Duh" you are white. Do your research. Being Caucasian and Italian are two different things. I believe the descent of Italians is from Italy, Sicily? That's way different than Anglo-Saxon. But enough of the hair splitting on race. All I want to know is this: Does anyone realize that you are basing your perceptions of other people's races on what "white people would call you"? That's on the same level as slavery of the mind. it's still in us to some degree. Why are we worried about what the white music industry and they in general would see us as? That's defeatist. Everyone should have pride in their ethnicity, no matter what it is!

if yall read it right, it said her peoples put it out there."which her people freely pass out", even though i don't believe that. Ciara has never denied that she was black. in interviews she always said she's repestenting the young black females. MTO stay tryna start some problems, they wanna be in the news that bad??? and so what if she wanna rep her other heritages? just like how Beyonce was trying to be suck up by saying she wanna be "latina" to sell some records, her peoples want to put out that she's of other heritage to put her name out there like that. i see it as a two way playing street.

I don't believe this. I know her father was in the military so she has lived all over. She was born in Austin, TX. In that special BET did on her in '05, her parents were in it, and they were both black (or looked it).


Nataine
flag as inappropriate/spamReply

Okay. I have two things to say about this. 1) About 8 months ago, I saw this on Ciara's wikipedia biography and my mother got ALL annoyed. Mom feels the way I do, that soooooo many Black people are insecure or unsatisfied being just BLACK. They are so colorstruck and striving for recognition in white society that they feel the need to either promote their multiraciality or lie like they are. But what I don't agree with as far as mom is that she always assumes a person is lying if they aren't extremely light-skinned. Tamia, Faith Evans, the Mowry twins and (falsely stated Rihanna all have white fathers and Mom believed it. When wikipedia said that about Ciara, my mom thought it was b/u/l/l/s/h/i/t and it made her look at Ciara very differently. 2)I knew that when they had the actual QUOTE from Beyonce about wanting to be Latina, they were gonna dig in the crates and pull out something, ANYTHING, about race with Rihanna or Ciara and they did both (this with Ciara and remember Rihanna's "comment" about you should want to be blonde because it's sexy.) MTO, just because Beyonce is colorstruck and stuck in all that doesn't mean everyone else is also. THIS STATEMENT ABOUT HER RACE IS NOT A QUOTE FROM CIARA. And whose to say she is not lying. Just because she is brown-skinned doesn't mean she can't be mixed. And for the record, I don't think it is at all necessary for Black people to broadcast what they may or may not be mixed with. Be happy and proud and full being Black. You are whole and complete just that way :) Oh yeah, BluBoy, shut the hell up telling the truth like that!!! LOL

this is funny and sad..her "people" want her to her appeal to the masses by saying shes mixed but theyre making her look like a fool and a wanna be..Ciara needs to thank her black audience for making her as rich and famous as she is, because frankly, the white people arent feelin her like that..they prefer Beyonce..Ciara gets a lot of air play on 106 and Park..NOT TRL..she needs to keep it in perspective and her "people" need to fall back with all of this mixed heritage stuff..yes we are all mixed but who the f*ck cares if Ciaras great great grandfather was german and if her great great great grandmother was Irish? I cant stand when black people do that..they want to say theyre grandma or grandpa from MANY generations ago was white or Indian or Asian..to make themselves feel less black..give it a rest..no one sees her as anything but black..now if one of her parents was straight up caucasian, then she can claim that..but thats not the case..so her "people" need to sit down with all of that before they turn her core audience against her!

LaDiva I think you are missing the point..The point is not that she is Irish or German or whatever the heck she is or what she wants to be...No one is asking her to deny her heritage... Our point is tell us that shyt from the jump... Dont use us and use our black culture and ingratiating yourself with black people as a black person and use us as a goddam stepping stone and once you gain fame and fortune based on our support, then announce that you are a German...THATS THE POINT... No one is asking anyone to deny their heritage and I think you realize that...We love Alicia Keys cause she was straight with us from the beginning and she realizes that even though she has a white parent shes still considered black in this country...Shes never denied her white mother and no one would ever dream of asking her to do so... But dont try to play us and use us as a stepping stone then proclaim you are other than us... Get it now?

Some people have said that she's used the Black community and used it as a stepping stone to wealth. Thing is, no one complained when others did it. I always disliked Jennifer Lopez for doing it, who I didnt think caught any flak over it..she dated diddy, started wearing a bandanna, called herself Jenny from the block...then soon as something went down..both physically AND in sales, she ran for the hills and started back singing in Spanish again. Justin Timberlake has done this as well. I love his voice, and his music, but he has aimed himself toward us, and nobody complained. My point being, that we don't have any kind of "requirements" or tests that say you have to be 100% Black no matter what your ancestors are for us to like you as an artist. Or that you cannot be honest about what your are. It's not that big of a deal at the end of the day, what Ciara said or didn't say. That cd is silver. And I will go to bed as securely in my Blackness as when I woke up. Validate yourself as a Black man or woman and stop letting society assigned "representatives" do it for us.

Of course, i know that her nationality is South African. I never claimed that she is black, dumbo. But as a South African whose family dates back to several generations, She is African. Then how will you classify, blacks in New Guinea and Papua New Guinea, who have certainly never being on the coast of Africa for centuries, Africans or Asians?

And there features resemble a mixture of African and South America descent as well. Because they are group consisting of a multi ethnic backgrounds you can't just solely categorize them as an African, Asian, or Australian. Besides you have anthropologists, scientists, and archaeologists who have different beliefs on there ethnological lineage.

Alright now, this is getting ridiculous. Here's the breakdown, if you are biracial there is nothing wrong with stating that and making the fact apparent. But let's please examine the concept of biracial. Bi - as in two. Meaning your PARENTS are of two different races. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging this, as to deny the fact would be spitting in the face of one of your parents. Tiger Woods is retarded as hell for making up that causablasian crap, but he was entitled because he is the product of an interracial relationship. To say he was just black would be disrespectful to the woman who birthed him. Same with the Rock, Terrence Howard, Alicia Keyes, Faith, etc. However, once you start doing complex mathematic equations to determine your heritage, you deserve to get kicked in the taint. Here's a newsflash, if you are an American born black person you are probably mixed with a whole bunch of shit you aren't even aware of. But as you probably have no contact or knowledge of those various cultures, there is no need to claim them. So unless Ciara has a leprechaun that can lead me to a pot of gold, there is no need for her to claim that as part of her heritage. (I'm thinking the closest she's been to her Irish heritage is eating a bowl of Lucky Charms.) Since when is being plain old black such a bad thing? (Fu%k, never mind, stupid question it's always been a bad thing. Everybody wants to be exotic without remembering that we're the most exotic race in the world. Every black celebrity seems to be so determined to downplay their blackness while the rest of the world spends ridiculous amounts of money and time trying to emulate us.) Going by that logic I'm 3/4 Native American, 22.5% country honky, a dash of Irish Springs and 2 gallons black. (And yeah, I meant to mix that up. It looks about as silly as these folks that need to whip out a measuring cup to figure out their racial make-up.)

Honestly, I agree w/ brooklyngal_1222, but I would like to share my point on this topic. I don't believe Ciara said what she said in the format MediaTakeOut is presenting it to be way, but I do believe she said something relavatory close to it. I can recall Ciara stating she was of mix race heritage. One thing I dont understand is why black people always feel defensive when ever african american person is acknowledging another ethnicity within them. I noticed how almost every black person in this disscusion board was suddenly so appall when she refered to herself as having more than just black in her. As african americans we all have a mixture of ethnicitys in us..that is unless you come from africa. If the quote above is a true statment, word for word..i believe Ciara did say im " GERMAN, CREOLE AND IRISH " she left out being black because she knew the publice already knew her as a black woman. And, someone said above claim those naps, sure she could claim them, but why cant she claim being of mixed heritage? and for refrence people just because u have Nappy/kinky hair does not denounce the fact that your are mixed. There millions of Mixed Heritage people who have less than good grade hair people claim mixed people are suppose to have. I am of afro-cuban decent, but others arent going to see me as just cuban Im gonna be refered to as a black woman in the United states there are black cubans just like there are white cubans. I am the skin color of Gabriel Union.. and am constantly judged because quote on quote I dont have the features/skin color of a cuban person.but it doesnt matter to me because like the said above statement, its about whats in your BLOOD. In cuba there are tons of mixed people dark,light nappy hair...ect...so you can not go by skin color or hair Texture!. Its impposible.Some of you may not share my view and thats fine with me, but attempting to bash Ciara because shes simply expressing another ethnicity in her is crazy. I may not be a huge fan of hers and i may not always post on this site, but reguardless of who agress or not. I am coming to her defense if indeed those were her words. I wont even assume someone will read my post and tangle my words because I know someone will get what Im expresing.

just to comment on those saying that italian are white.. just to clarify... i love the italian culture and have always studied their history.. italian people were never considered white until recently. When italian people started immigrating here in the early 1900's they were considered..non-white by the irish, english, scottish, german..etc. they actually at one point in 1920 something wanted to close the borders to the non white (meaning the italians) most italians had to change their last names to an anglo last name in order to put their children in school, get jobs, go to church, bank, etc. What italians actually are is LATIN.. not latino like me but people from Spain, France and Italy are considered Latins not white.. the white race are arians/anglos and they are ENGLISH, IRISH, GERMAN, SCOTTISH..etc. i have asked many people and all my friends said they consider italian people white.. but i have asked numerous irish people and to them italians are not considered white at all and the irish actually cant stand them.

I tell you what!! EVERYBODY on this post talking about Ciara needs to stop trying to act like she is all that and not Black need to please research your own history and quit HATIN!!! The term "black" is not a race--it is a color!!!!!!!! The only race to be defined by a color..black people.....and "white" people....what the heck is that? They are all something else too! None of us here came from America...Indians and Mexicans were here first..WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS FROM SOMEWHERE!!!! The ignorance on this site and this particular post make me sick because it shows that you all that are mad at Ciara are under the same spell that White America originally set over slaves...that they were inferior and not worthy of recognition. That's why sooo many people on here are so angry with her...cause u still under that slave mentality!! The house negro versus the field negro syndrome---thats what this mess is!! **UNLESS YOU OR BOTH OF YOUR PARENTS REMEMBER THE TRIP OVER HERE TO AMERICA, YOUR BUTT IS OF MIXED HERITAGE TOO!!!!!** We all need to denounce the "black" or "african american" race category and demand a clearer and more concise way of recognizing all of our heritage. Using the term "black" is a catch all which works more for White America than it does for you. It is not about not wanting to claim your African heritage...but ponder this: If it takes two to have a baby..how in the world is it fair to say that we are African-American? At some point, your African-American ancestor met up with that German or that Englishman or that Chinese person or that American Indian......we came from two lands....this race called African-American means just that...so why should you even call yourself "black" and forget about the rest? Where is the pride in that?

Ciara Singer Born: 25 October 1985 Birthplace: Austin, Texas Best known as: R&B singer who did the crunky "Goodies" Name at birth: Ciara Harris Ciara is a hip-hop and R&B singer whose 2004 debut produced the hit songs "Goodies" and "1, 2 Step" (with Missy Elliott). After years of moving around to military bases (her mother was in the air force, her father was in the army), her family settled in Atlanta, Georgia when Ciara was eight years old. She set out to be a singing star when she was a teenager, first with a girl group, then as a solo artist. With the help of producers Jazze Pha and Lil John, guest stars such as Elliott and Ludacris and a talented team of songwriters, Ciara's debut album made her an overnight celebrity. "Goodies," an up-tempo dance hit about refusing sexual advances, was a top hit in the U.S. and U.K. and earned Ciara a reputation as a "crunk & B" singer ("crunk & B" mixes elements of R&B with a harder, faster style known as crunk). It was followed by the single "1, 2 Step," which also reached the top ten. Extra credit: Her name is pronounced "sierra."

To be honest who isn't mixed down the bloodline. There is nothing wrong with stating your something other than black but come on get real. I kind of doubt she really said this but if it's true, Ci Ci, you're black. But I had alot of people state that they are mixed down the bloodline. I don't even believe that she denyed the fact that she is black just like the Tina Knowles story, "I'm not black". I do believe that Tina Knowles is black but what I am saying is that people should love their heritage but Ciara is black.

**bowa**, i don't care what you say...BLACK AIN'T NO DAMN RACE!!! The correct term is African-American....my point in stating this is that it puts African-Americans at the opposite end of the spectrum from Caucasians/White people...as if they are superior and clean and black is inferior and dirty...i denounce the whole damn thang because nowhere else in the world do you hear people saying "oh yeah, i went out with a yellow guy last night or my sister married a green man"---the repressive and sick relationship that exists now between "whites" and "blacks" is only the remains of the even more sick and repressive relationship of African slaves and their European masters. You and everybody else that settles for not acknowledging where the shyt comes from in the first place keep the same dysfunctional azz mentality ongoing. Don't come on here to think you are educating me---u need to pick up a book--and not King, Ebony, or Maxim....a HISTORY book!! "Black" is a color, not a race..I don't care who you are or how long the dumbazz term has been used..it is a by-product of slave owners imposing inferiority on African descendants...and the very acceptance of being labeled as such is repressive. Stop trying to orient me to the damn discussion, I know what the hell the subject is!! I am talking about the label as a whole, not just as it pertains to Ciara or you. I am proud of everyone before me in my family that made me whatever combination I am and not wanting to be called "black" is my, Ciara's, and everyone else in this screwed up U-S-of racist-azz A's right.

Most African Americans are not African we are African descend. So that mean that our ancient grandparents creep with different races or was forced. So we all are different descends. My grandma said if you have a little black( African descend) in you then your are African American. Know matter how light you are.


Kima5489

First off it seems that people, as well as Ciara if this is true, are forgetting that people of African descent can be found in almost every country in the world. Being German or Irish does not make you any less Black because guess what, Black people can be found there also. And to the person who said who uses the word Negroid anymore, forgive me sugar because I can't remember your name, that is the actual term used in sociological term used to describe people whose characteristics are mostly in keeping with those of African descent i.e. "Black people." If Ciara really said what MTO is saying she is ignorant because like I said Black people can be found in damn near every country in the world. And what you consider Creole does depend on what part of the world you're from but they all undoubtedly include being mixed with people of African descent. If all bring Creole meant was being French and Black I could very well say that I were Creole, everyone who is a native of my father's country were Creole, and any Black person from France were Creole. As you could guess by now, I'm not. The easiest thing for me to say is I'm half American and half Haitian but since people seem to be delving so deep I can say I'm part Haitian, about one eighth Dominican, part Native American, and part Irish. But guess what, none of that takes away from me being Black except maybe for the Native American part because most Native Americans are typically of the Mongoloid race, sociologically speaking. And being "African-American" does not determine your race. African-American denotes an ethnic group that just so happens to be made up of Black people. She can be anything she wants because at the end of the day, it's her everyone is on this page commenting about, not me and you.

Hi guys, I'm a black British girl from London. Yes, like you say, black people can be found all over the world. Naomi Campbell's from my area!There's quite a few of us black people in the U.K. and Europe, including France, Holland, Germany etc. Loving the forum- you're all so sassy and witty!!! Is it true that in the U.S.A, people refer to themselves as 'black' even if one of their parents is a different race? The trend in the U.K. seems to be that both parents have to be black in order for you to be black- otherwise you're mixed race. Quite a few 'mixed-race' individuals have risen to prominence this year from this country, including Leona Lewis and Lewis Hamilton. The media has been attacked for calling them 'black' because their mothers are white, although Hamilton does sometimes refer to himself as black. There is also the same debate raging about Barack Obama. I want to know why this debate didn't occur years ago when Halle Berry won her oscar? Anyway, please find a link attached from a London newspaper and subsequent comments from bloggers. The article was written by a British Asian journalist (when we say Asian in this country, we mean people from India, Pakistan etc. Chinese, Koreans etc are Orientals). Please be warned- it's not for the faint hearted and I was upset for weeks after reading it!!! Please also read the comments posted by readers. They will give you an (interesting?) insight into what is happening in multicultural Britain. Feel free to blog on it too: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23582422-details/Black%20heroes%20who%20honour%20their%20white%20roots/article.do?expand=true#StartComments Looking forward to seeing how you do things on the American side when I visit you on holiday soon!

Ciara's parents did at one point say that they have German, Creole and Irish ancestry. There's nothing wrong with that, but Creole is still considered African American. She should be proud of it. I'm Native American and Black but to me it's being fully black. I guess people just can't be happy with having the black heritage in them so they have to list 12 to 20 other races they are mixed with.

Hmm, I see the African American racists has flocked to attack her. Sorry there is nothing wrong with being mixed or ''non-pure''. I find it people who say things like ''I'm Native American and Black but to me it's being fully black'' more depressing than people who acknowledge that they are not only black. It implies that there is something wrong with Native Americans and that they had some great hand in enslaving and persecuting black people, when they did not. It seems to me that people with African ancestry are sometimes too quick to accept something which is pretty much the same as the Jim Crowe Laws!

maryprince is right about the UK. For some reason, unlike America, we are more comfortable with multi-ethnic families and especially multi-ethnic children. I do not want to assume that the attitudes of the UK, as a whole, are superior to those of the USA, however, I think we are right in this case. I do not see why people cannot be both black and white, black and yellow, yellow and white etc. It is beautiful. And being both would honour both sets of ancestors.
