Funny how so many celebrity black beauties are half white

The 50 Hottest Biracial Women

BY JUN 12, 2012

45 years ago today, a landmark court case changed race, love and sex in America.

In Loving v. Virginia, the U.S. Supreme Court found Virginia’s Racial Integrity Act of 1924 unconstitutional, thus legalizing marriage between people of different races.

You read that right: Before 1967, in 17 states—all the former slave states, plus Oklahoma—it was illegal for people of different races to marry.

It seems like ancient history, and considering the rainbow of races we now have in celebrity culture, it’s hard to conceive that that it took an act of the Supreme Court for beautiful women like Alicia Keys and Rashida Jones to legally exist.

And yet, if you had asked Richard and Mildred Loving, the couple who fought that legal battle against Virginia, whether one of their mixed-race kids (they had three, the first born in the late ’50s) might grow up to be president, they would have been skeptical, to say the least. Today, we have a biracial president who was born around the same time that the Lovings were having kids.

Today is Loving Day, and it’s a suitable time to think of all the sexy ladies who’ve come about thanks to people of different races procreating. And it’s not just blacks and whites. Hispanics with Asians! Asians with blacks! Whites with Hispanics! American Indians with the other kind of Indians! So, here, enjoy these mocha-colored, honey-tinted, caramel-complected babes: The 50 Hottest Biracial Women.

Written by Josh Robertson

Rashida Jones

Races: Black and White
Age: 36
Occupation: Actress

Boston PublicThe OfficeParks and Rec. It seems if you want a successful sitcom this celebrity offspring (Quincy Jones, Peggy Lipton) with girl-next-door charm is the way to go.

Alicia Keys

Races: Black and White (Italian)
Age: 31
Occupation: Musician

The utterly gorgeous and always composed Alicia Keys is the biracial superwoman, with more talent in her little finger than most of her pop-chart competitors.

Zoe Saldana

Races: Black (Dominican) and Hispanic (Puerto Rican)
Age: 33
Occupation: Actress

The year 2009 is also known as the year Comet Zoe smashed into the earth. Fist she was a relative unknown putting her spin on one of TV’s earliest black sex symbols, Lieutenant Uhura in Star Trek. Then six months later, as if normal-exotic wasn’t good enough, she turned blue for Avatar and blew sci-fi audiences’ minds all over again. Next stop, Calvin Klein underwear commercials!

Halle Berry

Races: Black and White
Age: 45
Occupation: Actress

The beginning and the end. Halle Berry is to biracial babes what Barack Obama is to biracial Presidents. Maybe give Crazy Uncle Joe the boot and run for re-election with Halle as Veep on an all-biracial ticket? Hey, it’s just a thought.

Soldad O’Brien

Races: Black (Afro-Cuban) and White (Australian)
Age: 45
Occupation: Journalist

Soledad is a serious journalist, she’s all up on CNN and stuff. She interviews Senators and captains of industry. And can we just say she’s adorable? Because she is.

Samantha Mumba

Races: Black (Zambian) and White (Irish)
Age: 29
Occupation: Singer, Actress

There’s a vague sort of term, “Black Irish,” that was used to refer to brown-eyed, dark-haired, less-pale Irish folk. But just try teling that to the kids now. Today you say “black Irish” and people get visions of Samantha Mumba dancing in their heads. Which are pretty good visions.

Renee Tenison

Races: Black and White
Age: 43
Occupation: Model

Playboy’s first black Playmate of the Year is a truly stunning swirl of chocolate and vanilla. And what’s even better, you can have more than one: She has a twin sister, Rosie, with whom she posed in Playboy in 2002.





HOLLYWOOD’S BLURRED COLOR LINE: Actress Paula Patton, star of the films ‘Precious’, ‘Hitch’, ‘Mission: Impossible 4 – Ghost Protocol’, and ‘Warcraft’, epitomises Hollywood’s new crop of biracial women actors. Patton’s aesthetically ambiguous beauty has lead thousands of Internet users to ask questions about her ethnicity, the nationality of her parents Charles and Joyce, and whether she identifies as black or biracial.

Meghan Markle

Hoda Kotb
Egyptian American, but seems fully integrated into white America. No apparent connections to black culture. Unable to determine ethnicity (racial as opposed to national) of father.

Gloria Reuben  [again] (1964- ) is a Canadian actress who is best known for appearing on the television show “ER”, where she got Aids from her unfaithful husband. Her father is white, her mother Jamaican. She won Miss Black Ontario 1986. More.

Sade(1959- ) is a Nigerian-born singer from the 1980s. She has that otherworldly look, like a princess from a storybook. She is half white, but I am too much of an American to see her as white instead of black. The One Drop Rule, you know. More.
