Well she's biracial and her mother is black so I'd say she's black. Also, by your logic, are Albino folk also not black?

She's mixed race. 50/50

She's as black as she is white.

Completely different as albino people still have black features.

Fam... she looks biracial. She doesn’t just look white. She looks white mixed with black. And i dont know what “black features” you’re talking about honestly.

Angela Merkel is white to my knowledge.

I think OP is alluding to the stereotypical afro, dreads or nose. (mixed race myself).

She blatantly looks mixed race, like her childhood pics and her MOTHER was there.

Her mum is black and her dad is white, she is mixed raced but just a little on the lighter side.

Also, she looked GORGEOUS. Was it Harry marrying into royalty?

Like...she obviously is a fairer skinned person of colour, but nonetheless, she raises issues relatable for many people of a "darker" colour. Why belittle her for for talking about a cause she is involved in. Also, the fact she is mixed race is amazing.

I honestly thought the same when I first saw a picture of her! I was surprised when I heard she was half black.

I'm not sure if she identifies as black - that's up to her. I guess some people see her as black. But the fact that she's so racially ambiguous looking and almost passes for white, I wonder how accepted she'd into the British royal family be if she looked "proper black" like Lupita Nyongo? I'm black (100%) myself by the way, so I'm not hating - I just find it a bit hard to relate to Meghan for those reasons.

it's rather racist in my view to consider people who are half black and half white, or even those whose mothers are part white and mostly black, with white fathers, as 'black'. This is all part of the 'one drop rule' in that to be deemed white, you need to be pure, and any 'black' DNA automatically removes the so-called 'whiteness'.

She looks more white than black phenotypically, but alas, centuries of racism and the 'one drop rule' prevail.

No, they're white by definition. Her mother is mixed race. Harry's kid will be white, no doubt.

Ikr!!! With such little makeup she looked so pretty!!!!

People always have something to say. Imagine if she was fully black and how the world would go mad.

Markle*

And she is mixed race - her father is white, her mother is black and apparently her family history involved slavery. Most mixed race people are lighter. She's also been in England a long time so her tan has probably reduced - I think she looks darker in the US.
