    I was honestly shocked when I heard she had black in her


    wouldn't have thought so by looking at her


    It really depends on the photo you're going by, she definitely isn't 100% white.

    Can you even define black? Is it really just a skin tone?
    Not always. It’s a race. Meghan Markle is the perfect example. Her skin looks like a white person but she is mixed race (her mum is African American and her dad is Caucasian). So technically she is half black/half white. She claims to be this herself. Trivial stuff if you ask me. Don’t see why it matters so much.

    How many times have i seen you saying black women have a certain look. And you were like you never see light skin black women. I don’t want to get into an arguement with you cos srsly it just drains all my energy.


    can't remember saying black women have a certain "look"

    I remember saying is that black people generally have broader noses and different facial structure compared with whites.

    Never said I've never seen light skin black women either.

    Although I have said a lot of light skin black women and mixed race girls are hyped up by black men ..so they tend to have an attitude about them like they're too good for you and generally act like they're prestige

    Meghan Markles' Dad is White and her Mum is Black - which makes her MIXED RACE. Yet for some reason whenever someone has a hint of "blackness", people just automatically assume their black.

    It's the same with other celebrities like Blake Griffin, Drake etc.

    Never seen an east african? Somali’s usually have “white” people noses and facial structure and has nothing to do with us.

    If anything, black men don’t hype black women enough.

    Yeah the press are going crazy, primarily because it is a royal wedding, however it is important note the media have diverted greater attention to such a minor royal event in comparison to the marriage of Charles/Diana and William/Kate, as a result of her ethnicity. It is an accomplishment and social change, however this decision was made my HRH Prince Harry, who's actions are quite questionable at times. Is it a major change, yes but is it under the full acceptance of the Royal Family, perhaps no. It would be more impressive if we had a non-white Prime Minister, who has the authority and power to represent and make potent decisions on behalf of this country, then social change can be represented. Meghan will soon be cast aside after the Royal Wedding, and her importance unforunately shadowed by her counterpart, Kate.

    Well, if she has white skin, she can't be black.

    true about somali's ...although most blacks in the UK are not Somali and don't have that facial structure and I was talking about them.

    I disagree with your other statement, if you worded it to "black men don't hype dark skin black women enough" then i'd agree

    the light skin black women and mixed race girls are well overhyped......

    Spaniards or Italians have light skin, but they're still white.
