Well she is 38, not quite 40, so she is still somewhat young. I keep hearing people say she is a quarter black, she is a little bit over a quarter. Her father was only like a quarter mixed himself she said, which is typical of most Black Americans. Her father's father was Hispanic, but he was also half black hispanic (black), and spanish hispanic (white). To me, because she is mixed, does not mean she does not identify with black people. Even though she say she is mixed, I think in reality, in America, she indetify socially more with blacks, but she has the privilege of a white person as well.
