Yet they all identify themselves as black women ...Lena Horne parents were biracial just like both sets of my grandparents...doesn't make me any less blackIts crazy how you women are so obsessed with interracial couples.
Paula Patton, Lena Horne and Nicole Richie though? They aren't black.
Her biological father is said to be Afro-Latin American percussionist Pete Escovedo Jr., whose sister is singer Sheila E.
Samuel R. Scottron (Lena's Maternal Grandfather)Lena Horne was born in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Reported to be descended from the John C. Calhoun family, both sides of her family were a mixture of European American, Native American, and African-American descent, and belonged to the upper stratum of middle-class, well-educated blacks, some of whom were mixed race. Her father, Edwin Fletcher "Teddy" Horne, Jr. (1892–1970), a numbers kingpin in the gambling trade, left the family when she was three and moved to an upper-middle-class black community in the Hill District community of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.Her mother, Edna Louise Scottron (1895–1985), daughter of inventor Samuel R. Scottron, was an actress with a black theatre troupe and traveled extensively. Scottron's maternal grandmother, Amelie Louise Ashton, was a Senegalese slave.
yet you don't consider her black...k:Samuel Raymond Scottron was a prominent African-American inventor from Brooklyn, N.Y. who began his career as a barber. He was born in Philadelphia in 1841. He received his engineering degree from Cooper Union in 1878.
He was a community leader in New York, setting up organizations to promote racial harmony and fairness, as well as a public speaker and writer on race relations. He was a member of the Brooklyn board of education, and a leader in the Republican Party. He fought for the end of slavery in Cuba and Puerto Rico.
lol.. you need to get out man.Just like I said these photo's illustrate the black women's attempt at interacial dating success is almost entirely limited to the white man.
Oh but Janet (on her 3rd or is it 4th marriage?) is that 1% of women in this thread that managed to buck the trend and snag a Arab billionaire.
When thinking of venturing to other various races.....good luck with those odds sistas,lol.
Yeah...she just like a lotta these black women pictured and in real life...fading 40 somethings with nowhere else to go at that stage of her life. Better to take what she can get than be a ole gray haired loner. 20 something black women in their physical primes with the world at their feet don't just up and say: "Oh I wanna settle with a Bangladeshi man named Shankar".
