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.

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.

Singer/actor Tyrese Gibson marries his “black queen”

It seems there’s a big uproar over R&B singer/actor Tyrese Gibson.  Apparently he recently announced that last month he secretly got married.  No big deal right??  Well in his Instagram post he said he had found his “black queen”.  But the picture of his wife proves otherwise.  His wife is Samantha Lee Schwalenberg. She doesn’t look very black to me. This is not a light-skinned black woman. Where are the African features?  The less African features you have makes you less black.  That’s why every racial group has race classifications to tell themselves apart from others. In 2014, Lee got a certification from the Professional Bartending School of Atlanta. Her certification is in mixology and bartendering.The newly married Mrs. Gibson attended the University of Georgia, and once even competed in the Miss Latin UGA pageant in 2011. Which is fitting since she looks more Latin than African.On her Facebook page, Lee regularly posts long, thoughtful posts about the role of religion and God in her life. In August 2015, Lee wrote about life and death saying, “I think the Devil does a pretty good job of convincing us that there’s nothing after death…that this life, that’s it. I am writing you all to tell you that I know that it doesn’t stop there. We should not fear death, just like we should not fear birth.”Lee is from Dayton, New Jersey, and according to her Facebook page, she now lives in Athens, Georgia. People magazine had reported that Tyrese and Lee were first seen out together at the 33rd Annual UNCF Mayors Masked Ball at Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta in December 2016.

I could really care less who Tyrese married.  The problem is he called her his black queen. According to Tyrese her racial makeup is Ecuadorian,Jamaican and African-American. Tyrese forgot to mention she is also part white.  So he should’ve said his “mixed queen”.  Or at least his biracial queen.  But to call her black is insulting to black women and black people in general.

This is a picture of Lee with her father.  He looks pretty white to me.  She looks like an Arab or a Hispanic woman.

This is a picture of her mother and brother on the far right.  Supposedly the mother is Hispanic. So I guess the mother is an Afro-Latina with some Jamaican ancestry.  The truth of the matter is she is a biracial woman that could easily pass for a Mexican,Cuban or Arab.  This is the problem with the silly one-drop rule. This is another example of whitewashing the African image.  Tyrese knows he’s wrong for this.  And I’m glad that black men and women are calling him out on it.  This was some ignorant self-hating coonish behavior on the part of Tyrese.  But this is what happens when you make being black all inclusive. Am I wrong?  Has this biracial stuff gone too far? Is Tyrese delusional?  I’d love to hear  your thoughts.
