Like I said, most black people are not mixed with anything. This whole "everyone is mixed" thing is simply false and was created to add to false inferiority and superiority.

Find a crowd picture of AA's who all look like this. It's nearly impossible for a whole crowd of AA's who looks like this anywhere in the US .

I really wish people would stop spreading that lie. Everyone is NOT mixed with something.
The average African American does have around 10-20% White ancestry. Time to bring out the facts and stop the heresay and speculation:

"Admixture studies have shown that the average African American has a genetic makeup that is 80% sub-Saharan African and 20% non-African";
http://www.bookerrising.net/2010/05/...-ancestry.html

"The typical "Black" American has only 13-18 percent European genetic admixture";
http://www.getcited.org/pub/103409892

"Earlier, cruder studies, done before direct genetic testing was feasible, suggested that African-Americans were 25 or even 30 percent white. Shriver's project is not complete, but with data from 25 sites already in, he is coming up with 17-18 percent white ancestry among African-Americans";

Afro-Americans are 10-20% Caucasian, that's why they're lighter than African negroes.

Is it only me or do AA girls/women look somewhat more African than AA boys/men do? (When ignoring the different clothes and hair styles.)

You can laugh all you want, but you know, we use the same word in Russia as a standard definition for Africans, because apparently it's derived from words like "Nigeria" or "Niger."
And Russia never had any history of Black slavery or really seen any Blacks for long time. In fact "serfdom" which would be an equivalent of slavery in Russia, was all about white Russian peasants, who were the property of the landowners, and who could be bought and sold at landowner's will...
( The serfdom ended approximately at the same time as slavery in the US.)

Regardless of its original meaning, in English the word negro for a black person is kind of taboo these days.

Sometimes a face talks louder than statistics. Do you really think Alicia Keys or Beyoncé are not mixed?

Judging from their ID and posts, 100% might simply hate non-black people and thus ignore genetics...
