We live in a color struck society where racially-ambiguous celebs hop from race to race when it benefits them (and it usually does). If you were shocked by the low-key swirls in Pt. 1, you’ll definitely be like “Wait…REALLY” while reading this.

Here are ten more celebs who you (probably) didn’t know were mixed. Take a look.

Jimi Hendrix

The once-in-a-lifetime music icon was mixed with everything including Black, Irish, and Cherokee Indian.


Purple Jesus is swirled with the finest of African-American, Native American and Italian blood.

Lenny Kravitz

The super-cool, deodorant-allergic rocker is half Black, half Russian-Jewish.

J. Cole

Like the waffle-colored Simp God Drake, Cole was born to a Black father and white mother but rarely ever speaks on his racial background.

Boris Kodjoe

The drooled-over eye candy is German and Ghanaian (aka Black & white) with a swirly (and stunning) wife Nicole Ari Parker. Happiest swirlationship in the game? Many believe so.

Keyshia Cole

The struggle-voiced R&B bird is Black, Italian and mostly hoodrat.

    Sophie Okonedo

    At first glance, you wouldn’t think the beautiful (and incredibly-talented) actress is mixed but she’s Nigerian and Polish-Russian.

    Sharon Leal

    The gorgeous (and ageless) actress is half Filipino. Or “Blasian.”


    The freckled beauty was born to a Black mother and white father in Canada.

    Ryan Lochte

    Who knew the turnt up Olympic Gold medal swimmer (who reportedly was smashing K. Michelle’s concrete-filled buns) was half Cuban, half German-Irish?
