    Default Some celebrities ashamed of their black ancestry


    Actress Jennifer Beals was born in Chicago, Illinois to Alfred Beals, who owned a grocery store, and Jeanne, an elementary school teacher. Her father was African-American and her mother was Irish. According to Hollywood rumor, after the success of "Flashdance," Beals was the new 'it' girl in town until a Hollywood executive was informed that she was bi-racial. This is an unsubstantiated rumor but Beals' career did come to an abrupt halt after "Flashdance." Beals has never discussed her ethnicity publicly.











    Before the film "Purple Rain," was released, it was revealed that Prince was half-Italian. In the movie, based on his life, he even went so far as to hire a white actress to portray his mother. In real life, Prince's mother (Mattie) is black, as well as his father (John). Prince also has a fully black sister named Tyka, a half-sister named Sharon and two stepbrothers who he has never discussed publicly.













    Tai Babilonia was the first figure skater of partial African-American descent to win U.S. and World titles. She is also part Filipino via her paternal family and part Native American. In the late 70's and early 80's, however, her mixed ethnic ancestry was rarely discussed by the media and it remained hidden until the late 80's.

















    Actor Vin Diesel has always refused to reveal his ethnicity and has never admitted to having black blood. Allegedly, he is half-black and half-Italian but you didn't hear it from Diesel.

    being ashamed and knowing people will discriminate against you for something out of your control are two different things


    discrimination was probably happening alot more in general in the early 80's than it is today....not sure what Vin Diesals reasons. (or really any of 'em for that matter)

    Nice and misleading thread title, how very KTL of you.

    First one says Jennifer Beals has never publicly revealed her ancestory and also throws in "unsubtantiated rumour."
    Second one bases it on a movie.
    Third one is of various backgrounds.
    Vin Diesel one has the key word of "allegedly."

    I don't think you've ever posted a picture of yourself here. Are you ashamed of your looks?

    diggy you must really be the most retarded person on this forum

    retarded enough to even think a person looking like this:

    actually tried to pretend they're white lmao


    and that skater bitch ... man, she won a fuckin skating competition ... do you watch skating competitions? do you know the ancestry of professional skaters? when a skater wins the championship, does the commentator shout their ancestry in the mic? she's not even a celebrity for fucks sake


    and how has vin diesel not admitted he's half black? google "vin diesel" and so far every link I clicked on has mentioned both his italian and his black ancestry


    it's the same for jennifer beals, so far every link I clicked has mentioned her mixed ancestry, and the bitch is still making movies so I dunno what the fuck you're talking about
