Back in November 2015, Taye Diggs caused a social media firestorm when he revealed he didn’t want his biracial son to identify solely as Black. He also set Twitter on fire when he said he will no longer date white women because of the backlash he has received from Black women due to his interracial marriage. In reality, there are a host of celebrities who aren’t mixed up when it comes to their racial identity. Here are “biracial” celebrities who proudly claim Black.
