What about mixed race folks? They may be 'natural' blondes.
Depends on what they are mixed with. If a White person marries a lightskin Hispanic for example, there is a good possibility the mother could give birth to a blond child. But if a White person marries a Kenyan for example, it is unlikely that the offspring from such a union will come out with blond hair.

There are quite a few mixed race Blacks with natural blonde or even red hair. Do you remember OJ Simpson's youngest daughter Sydney?

Does Barack Hussein Obama have natural blond or red hair ? What about about Halle Berry ? What about Lenny Kravitz ? What about Rae Dawn Chong ? What about Tiger Woods ? What about Kimora Lee Simmons ? Name one famous mixed race Black celebrity in the media who obviously has natural blond hair. And no Mariah Carey is obviously not a natural blonde.

Mariah Carey when she was younger with her natural brunette hair color.

So you're saying that it's impossible for Blacks to have natural blond in any way other than dying it.

My nieces have a white mother (blonde, blue eyed) and a black father... they have golden dark skin, dark brown eyes, and long, curly, light LIGHT brown AND light blonde curly hair (it's not all one color but naturally mixed). I've never seen hair color like this and my SIL (whose been a beautician for 20 years) says that their color can't be recreated from a bottle - it's like their hair captured light... I always marvel at how beautiful these girls are.

Like I said name one Black celebrity in the media who has natural blond hair. If it is so common like you claim than why can you not come up with atleast one example ?

Why does it have to be a celebrity? Why can't you just Google on that subject instead of indulging in your ignorance, Redneck?

I did google "blond haired blacks" and you know what kind of images popped up, images of Mary J. Blige and Serena Williams with blond hair for example. Are Mary J. Blige and Serena Williams natural blondes ?

Well I am a black person from a black country and there are natural blonds. There are also natural redheads who are of unmixed African descent. They may look a little unusual if you think of blondes as white people. Africa has a lot of genes floating around and there are many combinations, not just dark skin/eyes/hair. And in "unmixed" populations, whatever that means. Having said that, I think the OP meant white people with white skin, light-colored hair and blue eyes.

Of course. It's just that Dean here is a racist who doesn't want to believe that there is a such thing as albinos.
