WENTWORTH MILLER
The “Prison Break” star has a black father and a white mother, and ironically got his start as an actor in the movie “The Human Stain,” where he played a black man passing for white. But since then, he’s played characters that the audience a.ssumes are white.

MEGHAN MARKLE
“Suits” actress Meghan Markle has an African-American mother and a white father.

image

RASHIDA JONES
Take a poll and most “Parks and Recreation” fans won’t know that Rashida Jones is the daughter of music mogul Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton.

image

MAYA RUDOLPH
Maya Rudolph has played a host of racially ambiguous characters. But she’s actually Minnie Ripperton’s daughter with music composer Richard Rudolph.

image

CASH WARREN
Producer Cash Warren is most famous for being Jessica Alba’s husband. They don’t look like an interracial couple at first glance. But Cash Warren is actually the son of Hill Street Blues actor Michael Warren.

image

JENNIFER BEALS
The “Flashdance” star has been acting for decades. But even after her role in “Devil in a Blue Dress,” many of her fans don’t know she’s biracial.

image

TROIAN BELLISARIO
Troian Bellisario plays a WASP (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant) on “Pretty Little Liars,” but her mother is actually African-American actress and TV producer Deborah Pratt.

image

SOLEDAD O’BRIEN
It wasn’t until news correspondent Soledad O’Brien appeared on CNN’s “Black in America” that the world realized that she was black. Her father is Afro-Cuban and her mother is Australian.

why are you so mad if we're proud of our own culture, when for 400+ years we've been inundated with white culture

you dont understand its cool, we dont understand you're culture either for the most part and we've been in the same damn country for over 500 years and around each other for thousands of years
