MTO EXCLUSIVE: Rihanna ANNOUNCES That She’s NOT BLACK . . . She Considers Herself . . . BIRACIAL!!

: An MTO reader pointed out that in a series of Interviews Rihanna REPEATEDLY talks about how she is NOT Black . . . but that's shes BIRACIAL (Wasn't there another singer out there claiming CREOLE over Black).

Anyways, listen to this chick talk about how Mariah Carey is her idol . . . because Mariah who has a WHITE mother and a BLACK father, is biracial also:

And here goes Rihanna explaining how all the little BLACK GIRLS in Barbados teased her because she was "BIRACIAL" . . . double side eye . . .

in Barbados and other west indian cultures the lighter you are the more you are considered white. Her birth certificate probably states she is white. they have been doing that to black people for centuries. you see because in those countries there were more blacks than whites during slavery, unlike the US. So they had to find a way to keep them obedient because they knew they would surely lose in an uprising. Divide and conquer........now look. people bleaching their skin like fools.

" Hold on straighten that" this b itch is not biracial, Mariah is but not her. She is a Islander, that one of the tribes Levi(Haitians), Benjamins( Jamaicans), Judah( So called blacks of America), so therefore there's a big difference between your nationality. Biracial people arent straight Ne gros, Ni g gas, African American there mix. Rhi Rhi and her mom aren't Ne gros there islanders. A black person is a person with two black parents who ancestors came off the boats as slaves then got freed, then were put into the ghettos, projects, etc.

Black people need to stop promoting and financially supporting these Black Hispanics and biracial people who want to switch up on Black folks when it's convenient. Black folks are the only ones supporting some of these confused mixed folks. If Blacks stop supporting them financially, then they will start claiming Black again to make money, trust me. Black rappers keep casting these mixed and so-called exotic video hoes, who really hate Black people, but love the money. For some reason, Black folks love supporting those who really despise them.

I guess that makes ALOT of black Americans BIRACIAL and not black then (according to her definition). I'm so tired if this color issue...obviously she has some issues bc why would she keep mentioning it?When people see your parents they would know your ethnicity but she's not biracial she's of mixed heritage, like many Black Americans. Her father is biracial (Irish and Black), two races. I've seen dark skinned blacks with blue, grey, green or hazel eyes and with straight or wavy hair=MIXED HERITAGE. We can be SO IGNORANT @ times. Also, in this world she would be considered a Black Woman-JS

Mariah Carey on the other hand is biracial because her mom is white and her dad is a black Venezuelan guy. I think Rih just trying to get "stripes" by saying that she is biracial.

@inhere01 I clearly understand your argument or point of view, but at the end of day, I accept any biracial person who accepts me. To be honest, we have light-skinned people (who have black parents) who do not accept dark-skinned people, so should they not be accepted? When it's all said and done, I accept anybody who truly accepts me. What you say makes a lot of sense, but I guess I look at the forest instead of the tree: Numbers do not hurt the black race as far as accomplishing or obtaining things. Ironically, a lot of the people who were at the forefront of the civil movements were either biracial or had a biracial parent such as Huey P., Rosa Parks, Malcolm, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis (?), Assata Shakur (?) , the Huggins crew (?), and etc. I look at it this way: any biracial person who wants to fool him or herself thinking a particular way will eventually wake up and run to the black community, for without fail, one can count on Mr. Charlie and his crew introducing and forcing reality upon them, so at the end of the day-- it's all cool. Numbers do not hurt the black race and the system knows this; thus the reason for why they have designed or created a bracket for biracial people, for they (like me) understand and respect the power of numbers.

Whatever colonies the English slave traders dropped off slaves to, including Barbados, the resident white folks took a dip. And that is where her daddy came from in a later century hookup between an Irishman and his black Bajan mama, probably. I doubt it was the other way around. Rihanna is just a product of the legacy of self-hatred that still endures from slavery. I have exactly the same kind of racial makeup -- a mother who was truly bi-racial (product of a black/native mother and the white man who owned the plantation she was born on) and a father who was the son of a black sharecropper. I am as fair as Rihanna with a "good" (LOL) grade of hair and a far better nose and more Caucasian features than Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Yet I have never stupidly claimed to be "biracial." Not even "triracial." Culturally and legally (on the "one drop" scale), I am proudly a woman of color. Nor have I ever read that her father does not identify as "black." Her mother has no choice. Girlfriend, those green eyes must not see what we see. Own that nappy hair and big nose and count your blessings that someone wanted to hear you sing and pay you millions to do it, as odd as your voice is. If RiRi's behavior continues to be so ratchet and out of control, especially showing up late for concerts and allegedly drugged up, all the STFU's and "Take a Seat's" she's getting on these blogs might be a wrap for her career.

''Black'' is race, not ethnicity. African Americans misunderstood that. I can name ethnicities that can fall into this category. People from Deminican Republic, Brazil, India, Somalia, Sudan (Northern part), Ethiopia all have dark skins ( and in many times much lighter than Rihanna) very soft hair (many times softer than white peoples') very nice figures yet many of them are considered black. So, when I hear Rihanna saying she is not black, all I see is self-hating young girl. I just some co-workers that asked me, are you black, i was like are you guys blind? I am from Somalia, an African, of course I am black...what I forgot was that they think ''black'' is ethnicity not a race, in that case, even though I have brown skin, I am not ''black'' , but if u mean ''black'' as a race, then sure, I AM. Rihanna sounds ignorant tho. She seems not to know what the meanings of these words are. MIXED, BIRACIAL, BLACK, BROWN all fall into the ''Black'' race category. I hope I did not confused you guys!

Every1 ran in here in their feelings screaming "sit down you black!" Or "who cares if she doesn't wanna be black" and stuff like rihanna EVER said she didn't like being black or want to be black. In the CARIBBEAN, if you have white in you, whether it is half, a quarter, or a freakin nickel, and then you come out looking how she did, Extremely light skin with green eyes and brown hair, you get called white, mixed, biracial, etc. in Guyanese so I know what her point is. Most people in Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, etc are Dark skinned, then you have the light skinned people that you can clearly tell are black, but then you have the ones like her that get called white. That's what she was raised in. She never wanted I be biracial, her getting teased for It made her want nothing more than to just be black like everybody else. Yal need to get out your feelings because these were different interviews over the course of 2different years. It was never meant to be big thing. She never said she wasn't black, or hated being black. Chill out. Her saying biracial is an attempt at using clothe correct words by American standard because in the Caribbean Albee don't have time with saying biracial, if you look like hat, you're white. As ignorant as it sounds.

95% of all African Americans have white in them. Are they biracial NO!!! There wasn't no light skin Africans!! How that happen you do the math. It's not really any dark skin black ppl in America anymore like back in the day. Most blacks in America are either brown or light skin. But we're still black!! Even ppl who have white mothers like Obama and J.Cole Halle Berry, Shamar Moore consider them self's black. And that have a direct connection to a white parent not no fake biracial parent such as Rihanna. No dis cum bucket didn't hit a Keyisha Cole on us!!! SMFH

Did someone state they had a Far Better Nose? WOW.... The things American blacks say.. One of the reasons everyone liked her is because she seemed more authentic and cultural and it stood out. Shes black where did she say that she was biracial MTO? She said Mariah Carey struggle she can relate too. We didnt even know Mariah was black until they showed her sister. They hid Mariah Careys ethnicity and tried to pretend like she was white when she first came out. Now she says she is black. Rihanna is pretty but she did not say she was biracial she said Mariah is and who cares if she was she looks black. We live in America dont nobody care about that mixed stuff except for the colorstruck black folks if they stop idolizing people for race and being racist then a lot of that would end.... Biracial blacks are considered just as black as everybody else and are even over idolized in a lot of parts of the African American community for their European non blackness thats where it all goes left.

Why does everyone get so mad every time someone claims mixed heritage. Even if it's just her dad is mixed, she's still quarter. She didn't say half, she said biracial.

I have light indian mixed cousins in Jamaica yeah they are fairskin but they know they are blk. Just like Amanda bynes said stop trying to be white. Rihanna needs to stop bleaching too. She is light but never has been this light.

Black people came in shades of high yellow to black as coal. Once again black people are the so called African Americans of the USA brought exclusively here way back in biblical times. Your ancestors were slaves located first in the Northern parts then all down south. Ex. My great grandmother(moms grandmother) was kind of a slave born 1924, I'm pretty sure (my great great grandmother) was a slave. Both my parents(mother, n father) are straight black/ ne gro s with no mix race of islander Ex. Half black, half Haitian) I'm just black ancestors were slaves brought on plantations in USA. Once freed blacks move to areas consider the ghettoes. Ex. The first ghettoes consider in Miami was Overtown.My great grandmother was born in Georgia but became a Native of Miami and she can always recall Overtown as the first ghettoes of Miami. So therefore if you know you biracial as Rihanna cliamed/ stated then so be it. Blacks have a tight circle so We don't need extras. Teach your kids the importance and beauty of there skin(Watch Oprah Dark Girls) and let them know your family back ground so they can know who they are and be proud of it like Rihanna....La La, and ...Lauren London( all you professed there not black). Which is just the truth. A Haitian is a Haitian, a mixed is a mixed.

Multiracial. Yes. Biracial. No. Mariah Carey isn't half black, btw. And neither is she biracial. She is 1/4 Black, 1/4 Afro-Venezuelan, and 1/2 Irish. I don't understand why you guys are making a big deal out of this. She didn't denounce her African roots. Good grief. And while a vast majority of blacks do have White, Native Americans etc. Most of their blood is so far down the line that it doesn't even count,nor is it visible. Where's the sense in saying "I'm 1/8 Native American"?

@nana21 AFRICAN SLAVES WERE SENT TO BARBADOS JAMAICA HAITI CUBA PUERTO RICO. THATS WHY THEY ARE AFRO CARIBBEAN / AFRO LATINA / AFRO CUBAN ETC. ALL DEPENDENTS OF AFRICANS. JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT AFRICAN AMERICAN DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE NOT A DECENDENT OF SLAVES. SLAVERY HAPPENED ALL OVER THE ISLANDS JUST LIKE IT DID HERE BUT THE AMERICAN HISTORY ONLY FOCUSES ON AMERICAN SLAVES. GO TO COLLEGE AND LEARN ABOUT SLAVERY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. READ A BOOK PEOPLE. ANYWAY, RIHANNA IS A SELF HATER AND AS MUCH AS I LOVE HER, I KNOW THAT THE WESTERN IMAGE OF BEAUTY HAS AFFECTED HER. SHE WILL NEVER DATE OR HAVE CHILDREN WITH A DARK SKIN MAN JUST BECAUSE OF HIS TONE. SHE IS THE FEMALE VERSION OF ALL THESE SELFHATING BLACK MEN.

Biracial is 50% one race and 50% another race. If you're 1/3 or 1/4 anything it doesn't technically make you biracial. It makes you multi-racial. Now I have Native American in my blood but I don't claim to be biracial or multi-racial. I'm African-American and proud to be it. I don't understand why people feel the need to throw in that they are mixed. It doesn't make you any better or any different. And Keyshia cole claimed to be biracial but the chick doesn't even know who her real dad is. If you are biracial embrace it. But if you aren't embrace who you are

It's funny how these people commenting are too stupid to know the definition of biracial. Biracial means consisting of two races. Obviously if she is 1/4 white and 3/4 black, she is still biracial because her background consists of two races. Use your brain dumbasses.

Rihanna must be SPECIAL to everyone on here if she got all you h/o/e/s commenting on what her racial make-up is including the comments from people complaining about the number of comments on this topic!!!.. The truth is EVERY NON-WHITE group elevates the lighter skinned attractive folks of their group to make all you dark butts where ever ya'll come from on earth think thats what the majority of the darker races look like when we all know that is not true!!...MOST BLACK PEOPLE ARE NOT MIXED OR LIGHT!!...All you have to do is take a look at any setting where there is mostly just black folks and we all can tell there is NO MIXTURE in most of them!!!... My suggestion to you darkiez is to stop worrying about and/or claiming people that really despise you but of course I doubt that will ever happen because lightskinned mixed folks whether they come from a bi-racial parent and darkness, a white parent and darkness, 2 bi-racials/multi-racial parents or coming from 2 black darky parents it still doesn't make a difference because TOO MANY of you DARKBUTTS just want to forever use LIGHTSKINNED PRETTY PEOPLE for your own convenience and lustful worship of the LIGHTERSKINNED AESTHETIC (meaning goodhair and attractive features etc..) when you DARKIEZ both male and female NEED TO GROW A PAIR FOR ONCE AND REPRESENT YOURSELVES(AS YOU TRULY ARE NATURALLY) without the crutch of hiding behind mixed people, fake hair, and the tweaking of your darkskinned negroid features to make you more acceptable to whites....Most darkbutts refuse to accept and represent themselves as they truly are and thats why nobody takes darkiez seriously NOT even other darkbutts!!...

Can we all just get along? SMH People have the right to self-identify themselves. Mkay? My ex was biracial. I asked him once if he felt more black or white, and he said, "neither." He just felt different from everybody. I think that's all this woman is saying is that she isn't 100% like any one group, and ya'll know she telling the truth about kids picking on her. My nephew is 176% black, but the kids at his school got the nerves to pick on him because he's "light-skinned." People need to start by teaching their KIDS that black is black, whether light or dark. We need to stop talking about "good hair" and "bad hair." We need to teach our kids to love themselves REGARDLESS of how they look, and stop passing the remnants of slavery on to our kids. We can't control how other people view us, but we can do better as black adults.

Mto shut up seriously... y'all wrote "Rihanna ANNOUNCES she's biracial" as if she just recently did it these interviews are OLD how do you have a world exclusive on something that's 2 years old. And I have heard Rihanna refer to herself as black on more than one occasion like when the fan asked why is her hair so nappy and she responded "because I'm black b.i.t.c.h" so please stop trying to start sh!t. She probably meant she got teased because she had white in her.


imshe_youreher

In reality, she multiracial. Bi-racial is the integration of TWO separate races or cultures. If her dad is black and irish, then he is bi-racial, not her. I'm pretty sure she was teased more about her forehead than the color of her skin. Every girl that looks or acts differently gets teased, boo hoo, it's apart of life, but it obviously did teach her shit. Most black people are not dark-skinned, some, but not all. The problem is what we define as black and beautiful. She's in an industry that praises anything that appears to be exotic even if it means denouncing your culture, and who you really are. We can't say that color doesn't matter, yet it matters what a person is mixed with? Crazy society we live in.

This is disheartening. I immediately dismiss any black celebrities who want to disassociate with their blackness. Vanessa Williams looks whiter (and likely is whiter) than Rihanna but proudly claims black. I'll have to see Rihanna renounce this nonsense before supporting her ever again.

bulbef

In the Caribbean, Rihanna would be considered West Indian. West Indian does not mean Indian or part Indian for those who do not know, but a person of mixed race. Rihanna's mother has dark skin but her father was obviously mixed. Rihanna's father is also obviously mixed. While the US standard requires one who has a single drop of black blood to choose the black race to identify with, keep in mind that in many countries (whether in South America, Central America, the Caribbean, the Middle East etc) this is not the case. Instead, people go by nationality or ethnicity. It therefore, becomes a very big problem to choose a single race when one arrives in the US. I was actually appalled to find out that Vanessa Williams had to take a DNA test to understand that she had European ancestry and to know where her ancestors came from. In the Caribbean, most people of mixed ancestry know where their ancestors came from, what they did for a living, and in many cases had a loving relationship with them. As a person of multiracial background who identifies as being black, I can tell you that it has become an even bigger problem for me in the US. I do not look black and on many occasions, I have been in a position where authorities have openly questioned why I consider myself to be black. So, the best thing I can advise is to educate yourselves. Don't get angry. The US rule is not the gold standard of the world. It is only one standard that can be used. If Rihanna wants to be black, so be it; if she chooses to be biracial, so be it. At the end of the day, the only thing that is really important is whether she is a role model to those who up look to her, whether she is a good citizen, whether she knows how to love everyone, and whether she uses her talents to glorify her Creator (who incidentally made her the way she is). I would prefer that Rihanna not do the torque, not wear indecent dress, not be vulgar in her appearances and to reflect the pride, rather than the street behavior, of much of Caribbean society.
