It is highly unlikely that Beyonce is 100% Black. Somewhere in her ancestry must have been some white folks. Beyonce is the surname from one side of her family. It sounds French and her family is from Louisiana I believe. The French were really liberal about interracial relationships. Most African Americans have some white in them anyways. I'm not sure if she would pass in an African country. She has a very Caucasian face. She looks Latina.
Anyways, back on topic. About Filipinos having Negrito blood. Here's how I explained it on another thread...
A pure Filipino would have to come from one of 2 racial stocks (or both): Austronesian (we call it Malay) or Negrito. The Negritos were in the Philippines long before the Austronesians. The Proto-Malays were the first wave of Austronesians. They came from Taiwan through the Philippines and went into Malaysia, Indonesia, and eventually the Pacific Islands. Their descendants are upland tribal groups like the Ifugaos, T'Bolis, Manobos, many other tribes, and maybe even Ilocanos. They are probably more heavily mixed w/ Negrito since they've lived up in the highlands alongside the Negritos for centuries while the Deutero-Malays settled the lowlands. The Deutero-Malays are the people that migrated back from Malaysia and Indonesia. There are pleanty of legends about Malaysians coming to settle certain islands. They must have some truth behind them. Most of the major lowland ethnic groups like Tagalogs, Bisayans, and Bicolanos fall into this category.
An example of a Proto-Malay.
No you are dead wrong and somewhat racially ignorant. What a retarded thing to say
, hardly anyone in the world is 100% anything.
I am black American/Carribean, Beyonce is a majority West African and she would fit in West Africa and be a black woman, trust me, she does not look white or caucasian, Latina to me or any other black person I know. If so she would be a black Latina. Black people know that she adds to her look to sell records. Her facial features look predominantely black in my opinion. I know what most African Americans have in thier blood (most are only like 8-10% white, from slavery admixture, rapes, etc. not much), but that does not matter they are majority West Africans and thus accepted in West Africa and black. There are millions of black women walking the streets who have her features, because they are not famous no one questions what they are.
By the way there are millions of black Latinas who are majority West African (Dominicans/many Puerto Ricans/ most Cubans). And many West Africans who have Beyonce's facial features , they are called Tauregs, and Fulanis, Woodabes. Her face looks black. She does have past French blood but not that much, its like one great great grandmother. But the media plays that up because people cannot accept black beauty without racial admixture.
Most people do not know the various looks of black peoples. West Africa is FULL of facially different looking black tribes.
ALL THE FACIAL FEATURES IN THE WORLD COME FROM AFRICA, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AFRICAN LOOKING OR CAUCASIAN LOOKING FEATURES. AFRICANS HAVE ALL SORTS OF FACIAL FEATURES.
West African Fulani woman (facial features)
West African Taureg woman
