    I am ambivalent so I did not vote, but I have a burning desire to know her perceived race.

    Human,


    or do you mean those Caucasian, ... categories?

    And isn't there a "to" missing from the thread title?

    Why does it matter?

    It continually surprises me how obsessed Americans are with race....

    I thought it always went by the fathers race?

    It doesn't matter...

    We're not all obsessed with it, I don't care what race anyone is. It's an idiotic social construct that needs to die. Sadly, it won't any time soon...

    Look at her pictures. In 1/3 she looks white; in 1/3 she looks mixed and the other 1/3 black.

    This is why I am so confused.

    But why does it matter? She is a woman. Maybe not a Vulcan one, but no one can be perfect.

    This is just a sad thread. Who cares what race she is. It's stuff like this that is keeping race issues alive. I'm not going to even vote other on this.

    But it's not a racial issue in one race is better than the other. I believe they are all equal.

    It's just out of curiosity (not racial bias) that I ask the question, "How is she perceived?"

    Why don't you just email her, if you want to know. Personally, I don't care.

    According to wikipedia:

    So she is clearly biracial of European and African descent.

    It IS a racial issue, because you made it one by asking. I perceive her as human and that's all that matters.

    First thought that comes to mind is that she is a female, and a nice looking one at that.

    Second thought is that she is an American.

    Third thought is who cares.

    Anyhow, I either like her music or don't. Simple. Why make things complicated. :)

    She belongs to the Human race. Other then that, why does it matter?

    Human is the race, there are no other ones I know of. Seriously the US have a real BIG problem with this! with your race stupid questions and modern segregation! this is killing your country (with two or three other things too)...
