ALL of those people you posted with the exception of lorenzo romar are confirmed biracial. In other words they are AS african american as they are European american.

They are probably even more european than african seeing that most african americans are ~20% european on average so they are like 70% european.

Lorenzo romar probably is as mixed as well but its just trickled down and not directly biracial.

There is a difference between a biracial and an african american.

An african american (socially not literally) is someone of predominant west african ancestry that has lived in America for a significant period of time (since slavery times in most cases).


A BI Racial is someone who is Half African american half european american. This means they are the same amount of White as they are Black which would make them Grey :P . But in most cases they have more european then african because aframs have admix (under 30%).


Basically Im saying biracial is not african american.

yeah true, anyone from africa who comes to america can be an "african american" technically speaking, but its mainly used to describe black americans who are dencdants of the slaves from western africa.

True as well, Obama is socially accepted as "black" or "mullato" but he is equally a mix of both "white" and "black"

In the case of Tracee Ellis Ross it's probably that her Jewish father is strongly Semitic/Armenoid. I've seen that before when one parent is from the middle east, or Jewish. As far as I know Ross is the only one who is biracial, the rest are just multi-generational mixed blacks.
