First of all, I want to thank you all who read my post the other day. Thank you for the likes and the nice supportive comments. Something I said in my post is that looks are deceiving and I want to show this by showing celebrities who are biracial that some may not know that they are. These celebrities come from mixed backgrounds, but may not look it.
Melanie B, better known as Scary Spice of the Spice Girls, has an English mother and an Nevisian father. Melanie has always made it known that she is mixed, that she is proud of it and even in her book mentioned that she was teaching her daughter to be proud of being mixed too.
Geri Halliwell, better known as Ginger Spice of the Spice Girls, has a Spanish mother and a father who is English and Swedish.
James Roday, known for his role of Shawn Spencer on Psych, has a mother who is of English, Irish and Scottish ancestry and a father of Mexican descent.
Lenny Kravitz, known for his music, his mother is of Afro-Bahamian and African-American descent, his father comes from a Russian Jewish family.
Tia and Tamera Mowry, actresses known for Sister, Sister, have a mother of Afro-Bahamian descent and a father of English ancestry.
Jennifer Tilly, an actress, has a father of Chinese descent and a mother of Irish, Finnish and First Nations ancestry.
Jessica Alba, an actress, has a mother of Danish and French Canadian descent and a father of Mexican ancestry.
Wentworth Miller, an actor, has a father of African-American, Jamaican, English, German, Jewish and Cherokee background, his mother is Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian and Lebanese ancestry.
David Gallagher, an actor, his mother is of Cuban descent and his father is of Irish descent.
These are only a few of the many celebrities who are biracial. Some of them probably don’t even look mixed at all. And that’s exactly why I don’t look at anyone and think I know exactly what they are. Looks are deceiving and by looks alone, you can’t know what someone is.
For those who are mixed, be proud of your mixed heritage. Forget the doubters, the ones who say you can’t possibly be what you say you are. It’s hurtful, I completely understand. But don’t ever let those people stop you from celebrating your heritage, even if you don’t look it.
Are you mixed? If so, share your heritages if you would like to.
