Mariah Carey: The Only Reason I am Considered Black is because of a Legal Technicality!!!

- By Bossip Staff

Mariah Carey went on Lopez Tonight and got into an interesting topic about what she’s mixed with. When explaining, she finally admits that she is black but that is according to the United States. Also, the host George Lopez finds out that is he 4% Sub-Saharan African… HUH??!?!? Pop it for the Video and it will all make sense… WE GUESS!?!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

So, Mariah’s father is not black completely because his father’s mother is from Venezuela… Mariah, give it up,YOU’RE ONE OF US!!!

    And we care because???

  • Sandra

    Yeah, but white society didn’t want to claim the biracials. They made it pretty obvious. The black people were the ones that raised and accepted them more. A lot of Mexicans like George Lopez have black ancestry, they just never comp to it or try to find out about it. At one point, it was more black people in Mexico than Spanish in the 1500s. The first man to become president of Mexico after it got its independence from Spain was a man of black and Native American ancestry.

    NATIVE Americans are Mexicans that were smart enough not to go to Mexico. Mariah is so dumb. Too bad she’s Irish. Scottish are cooler. ANOTHER BLACK MAN GAVE A WHITE GIRL MUSIC ABILITY. Ahhem Alicia Keys, Tiny (of tlc) etc. When daddy is black records sell. Vanity’s dad was white. Too bad. Now she a ole chuch lady.

    I kinda agree w/ mariah carey because i wish they were more spefic about his ethnicity though

  • KimMatherssss

    Did you not clearly hear her say her father is african american. George asked her isnt there some latin part ahd she broke it down how her great grandmmother is Venezuelan so stop trying to spin hatred. This is a waste of time blog if ever there was one. nobody asks Alicia keys a damn thing becasue she is darker, but she has roughly the same blackness as Mariah. MC is so light therefore people trip about it one way or the other.

    I’m from Trinidad, and everyone there is mixed, to diff degrees – some are mixed w several races, some have mixed ancestry (for example, my dad’s grandfather was straight from Scotland and married a black Trinidadian woman, my mom’s great grandmother was native Carib, and theres a bunch of other mixes in there that we don’t know about, but when babies are born, there are some throwback features).

    Mixing is great. It’s the thing that’s going to save the race issue. Ppl where I come from are proud to be mixed up mutts, we feel like it makes us more interesting, and i think it does. And white ppl everywhere tend to be not into mixing (except in the UK, and well Europe to a certain extent). I notice that a lot of black Americans have a diff view on that? What’s up w that?

    I’m glad to see a not “obviously black” Hispanic saying that he has some black ancestry. I heard that those DNA test, though, don’t even really confirm totally how much of an ancestry you can have. Jennifer Lopez you need to come clean also. Because Puerto Ricans have even more black ancestry than Mexicans. I say this as an “obviously black” Latina.

  • Yolanda

    That’s correct Latinos come in every race from white, black, Asian, Native American, Asian and mixed with any of those groups. It’s a cultural/ethnic group, not a race of people.

    You could even say the Spanishs are mixed with black since the Moors conquered Spain for 700 years.

    @ sandra
    True. Hugo Chavez does not look white. In their country they call their black people “Afro-Venezuelan”. Alfonzo Ribiero, Laz Alonzo, Dania Ramirez, Zoe Saldana, and Jon Secada would all be considered black even though they are from Latin countries.

    George Lopez is dark because he has more Indian than Mexican blood. Eric Estrada off Chips is the same way. Mario Lopez is Mexican but he has more Mexican than Indian blood.

  • Bey-nonsense

    Mariah is black. Look at her pictures before she straightened her hair. (in the 90’s)

  • Mad Max

    Americans are narrow minded, this is just an example of it.


    did everyone get that dumb a s s comment, that latino is the 55% european lmao

    that was a dumber comment than anything out of a black celebrities mouth

    that should get an award, for geographical stupidity

    did not even mention what east asia was, yall latins crack me up thinking you are white, yeah right, oh sorry, yeah “white”



  • Journey

    Mariah has some issues and it has nothing to do with her ethnicity.

  • adrienne

    all black people are mixed with something!!! we are the true melting pot!!!

    • Mechelle

      You are absolutely right about that one.

  • Somali Ninga

    god i wish i had peachtree tv/tbs on my TV but it’s broken :(!! The show looks so good!!

  • Mock Rock Star

    Mariah looked pretty nice on that show.

  • deniro1974

    well im italian, dutch, irish and a little sicillian.

  • dah de dah

    MARIAH CAREY’S MOM IS THE ONE WHO HAS THE MUSIC ABILITY NOT HER DAD AS WELL AS ALICIA KEYS HER MOTHER WAS A PART TIME ACTRESS AND SINGER SO THAT THEORY FAILS. And native Americans are not Mexicans who weren’t stupid enough to go to Mexico. Native Americans are just that. A Mexican is someone who is of native American and Spanish ancestry. And since Spain is considered European then his test results are what he is. European and Native American which in turn add up and make someone who is considered a Mexican.
