Meghan Markle: Redefining Black female identity?

Meghan5....jpg

Since there’s so much talk about biracial actress Meghan Markle,here’s a few pictures and videos.  Some peopel ahve told me they aren’t familiar with her. Some think she might turn out to be some so-called pro-black mulatto like Jesse Williams or Colin Kaepernick.  But I can assure you she is nothing of the sort.  Especially once you know her background.These videos and pictures should give you a better since what Markle is really about.  Her upcoming wedding to Prince Harry is not a win for black women. And not for black people as a whole either.  The royals achieved  their wealth and power through murdering and enslaving African people. And shouldn’t be celebrated at all.

This photo(above) is of Markle as the homecoming queen in high school. She attended the private,Catholic, Immaculate Heart High school in Los Angeles.

This photo(above) is Markle at Northwestern University in Illinois.  Markle was in the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma. Were there any black women in the sorority?  Doesn’t look like it to me.

Here’s a recent picture(above) of Markle and her mother,Doria Radlan.

Some people are not aware that Markle is divorced.  This picture(above) is of her ex-husband film producer Trevor Engelson.

Markle..

This is a picture(above) of Markle with ex-boyfriend Canadian chef  Cory Vitiello.  Reports say she was dating Vitiello at the time,when she met prince Harry.  They say Harry asked for her phone number.  Next thing you know…Vitiello is a memory.  Guess she wanted to move up in the world.   I can’t seem to find any pictures of her with black boyfriends.  So I will assume she never dated any.  Markle has said in an interview that she is an “other”.  Even though she has a black mother,her life in Los Angeles seems primarily white.  Her parents divorced when she was sic years old. Her private high school was mostly white too.  So I would say she’s a mixed race woman that is more white-idenitified than anything else.  The fact that she is now marrying a so-called royal is nothing to get excited about.  I hoped this post gave you a better understanding of Markle and her upbringing.  She’s not one of us.

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey is 1/16 Black…Does it make her African?

Ronda2..

Well what do we have here.  It seems as though mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey as some “black” in here bloodline.  I noticed in this picture she has braids in her hair. Maybe she’s trying to get in touch with her “African roots”.  Who knows right?  I had a co-worker tell me she was part black last year.  Of course I didn’t believe it all.  But after a little research I found a little information on it. But it wasn’t a big deal me.  There are many white celebs that have a black relative from waaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day.  But I guess the subject came up again when TMZ released a recent video with Rousey and her mother.

Of course this is not totally shocking but most white celebs don’t mention their black ancestry.  That information is usually dug up by someone else because there is no real advantage to admitting some black ancestry in a racist white society. This is the break down of her family background. She is the daughter of Ann Maria Rousey DeMars (born Waddell), a judoka and author, and Ronald John Rousey.

Ronda’s maternal grandfather was of Trinidadian and Grenadian descent (including African, Spanish, and English ancestry). Ronda’s other ancestry is English, 1/16th Polish, German, Scottish, and distant Dutch.

Ronda has said that her ancestry is “half venezuelan, a quarter English, a quarter polish, 100% American”. Her reference to “Venezuelan” ancestry likely refers to the fact that the island of Trinidad, where her grandfather’s family was from, is just 11km off the northeastern coast of Venezuela. Ronda’s first three fractions are not quite correct: she is of one quarter Caribbean ancestry, not half, she has English ancestry, to one degree or the other, from all four of her grandparents, and her Polish ancestry is one sixteenth, not one quarter.

Ronda’s paternal grandparents were John Edward Rousey (the son of Clarence James Rousey and Theresa Ellen De Moss) and Jean Orvetta Zifka (the daughter of Charles O. Zifka and Lenice O. Dilley). Charles was born in Wisconsin, to a Polish father, Lawrence Zifka, and an American mother, Elzina Smith.

Ronda’s maternal grandfather is Joseph Arthur Waddell (the son of Alfred Ernest Waddell and Emelia/Amelia Maria/Mona Castillo). Joseph was born in New York. Alfred was born in Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago, to Joseph Waddell, who was English, and Claudine Angus Abbott, who was from St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Amelia was born in Trinidad, to Pedro Castillo and Maria Hernandez.

Ronda’s maternal grandmother is Marcella Ann Austin (the daughter of Anthony Austin and Reva/Rena Landon). Marcella was born in Illinois. Anthony was born in Indiana. Reva was born in Illinois, to Laurence Landon and Mayme Price.

Now you have silly ass negroes going around saying she should be considered a black woman.  This is insanity! I covered this issue once before last year.

But this is NOT a black woman.  She is not African. I don’t care what Rousey’s mother says. Just because a white person has a great-great grandparent that was black or mulatto does not make them black. This is once again that crazy “one drop rule” gone wild. Blogger Authenic African Vanguard once said:

“The Ignorance Of Blacks/Africans Accepting The False One Drop Rule Has Caused A Lot Of Confusion Among Africans. Which Is Why The IMA Constantly Promotes It To Keep Africans In The State Of Disarray. When The European/IMA Has Control Over Your Own Racial Identity,He Is Able To Manipulate Africans Into Accepting His Bastard Offspring And Even Put Them In Positions Of Power Over “Authentic” Africans. Recently A IMA Female Actor Meryl Streep Said In Front Of An All White Film Panel (“There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally,” she added. “Berliners, we’re all Africans really.”) The Deceptiveness Of “We Are All Africans” Minimizes And Ignores Crimes & Injustices Committed Against Africans Worldwide, Based Solely On The Fact That They Are “Authentic” Africans. This Is Why There Is An Urgent Need For ACBN Thought Among Blacks/Africans Internationally. The World Is Ran By Individuals With A “Racial” Group Identity. Individuals Linked Together Simply By A Distinctive Phenotype.”

Those are very true words! Very well said statement by an intelligent man.. And we as black people must stop trying to claim every single person that has some black ancestry from way back in the day.  It makes us look pathetic trying to claim people who obviously don’t look like us or want to have anything to do with us.  We should be a prideful people and embrace our African culture and heritage. And we definitely don’t need to claim some overhyped,overglorified unattractive white martial artist fighter.  This white woman has NO African traits. Skin color,hair texture or phenotypes. So let’s keep it real.

So I hope this helps you with any confusion you may have. She’s not one of us.  And I don’t give a damn if she puts her hair in braids,dreadlocks or bantu knots.
