Rihanna is mixed, She is 1/2 Black, 1/4 White, and 1/4 Guyanese.
Her mother is a mix of Black and Guyanese. (Guyana is located off the northern coast of South America). And her father, is a mix of Black and White.
Rihanna chooses to self-identify as mixed race, rather than black. Her self-determining choice has upset some traditionalists within the black community, particularly in America, where any person with any proportion of African ancestry is regarded as black.
But Rihanna is part of a new global generation who are unafraid to go against such conventions in declaring their own kind of modern-day racial independence.
Since when is Guyanese a race? You realise a lot of Guyanese people are black right
I have never heard Rihanna say she identifies as “mixed race.”
Her mother is AFRO-GUYANESE. aka BLACK. And her Father is Barbadian aka BLACK.
Sure she’s “mixed” … most Black people in the diaspora are some kind of mixture. That doesn’t mean they identify as mixed.
You can’t look at a photo of Rihanna with her grandmother and the rest of her family and tell me she identifies as mixed. Cause where in the hell would that even come from. You got all Black family members…… but you identify as mixed???? Lol.
My little sister has hazel eyes and is lighter skin than our immediate family…… that would be like her identifying as mixed. I’d be mad as hell. Lol. Like, BITCH, YO WHOLE FAMILY BLACK. Both yo parents Black.. yo sister black… How the fuck you think you’re mixed??? Lol.
She’s Bajan, we all mixed. We identify ourselves as black and I’ve never heard her say she is mixed race.
