Celebrities Who are Surprisingly Part Black (John Boehner's Grandmother Was Black)
YouTube ^ | December 20, 2013 | JB Clem

Posted on 12/21/2013 5:35:33 PM PST by lbryce

This video makes the surprising claim that certain celebrities, polticians have black ancestors.


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: partafricanamerican
I would think that to most Americans the revelation of a celebrity having a black ancestor would not make any difference in the perception of the person.

Why is it considered surprising as the title implies?

What is your take on this issue?

I would think to most Americans the revelation of a celebrity having a black ancestor would not make any difference in the perception of the person. 1.Would knowing that a famous white person, as celebrity or politician had an African-American parent, grandparent or ancestor change your perception of them?

2.Would you look at them differently? 3.Would you be less inclined to associate yourself with someone with black ancestry?

4.Would you be inclined to marry someone revealed to have a black ancestor?

5.Would you consider the revelation to be that if being geneologically outed the equivalent of being outed as gay?

6. Do you belieive that any person with black ancestry wold preder it not made public?

Is Carly Simon’s mother Valerie Jarrett’s mother? :)

I wonder when the Speaker of the House started being considered a ‘celebrity’, especially as most people in America, maybe 74% couldn’t name him.

I was going to comment that in addition to her black, jewish ancestry there’s a component of her geneological make-up that remains primordial in its origin.

Truth is, many of us are of mixed race somewhere down the line. Maybe even most of us...

Our family thinks that way way back there was a dispute over a black/white marriage, perhaps an Indian/white marriage...we’re not sure which...and the “offending” husband changed his name.

Now our family surname is spelled just a tiny bit differently than others with a similar last named...(e.g. “Jonnes” instead of “Jones”.)

My take? As a foreigner who visits the US often, I see Americans being very race-conscious. This doesn't necessarily mean 'racist' or 'discriminatory' but race as a factor in daily discourse is dominant here. Just browse through a day's worth of articles posted and you'll find a large portion of them involve a discussion on race. So, I don't think it's entirely erroneous to have the word, 'surprising' mentioned in the video title.

It’s insulting to even be asked these ridiculous questions.

“Would you look at them differently?”
“Would you be less inclined to associate yourself with someone with black ancestry?”

"Race" has devolved to merely skin color?

No wonder Boner spends time in the tanning booth.

Follow the money. We have an economy heavily based on the fact that you get special perks, payouts and benefits if you are labeled as part of a class that is generally considered a victim of discrimination. Therefore people spend a lot of effort working hard to make sure they define a certain class of people as perpetual victims and make sure they themselves fit into that group. This is a job that earns them income. If you subsidize victimhood, you will get more of it.

re: Carley Simon

Her pedigree means nothing one way or the other.

I have always found her highly unattractive. She looks like kissing her would be very dangerous. Too many big pointy teeth.

Kind of like the killer rabbit in Holy Grail.

My God, what happened to Carly Simon? I know we all age, but this desiccated, dried up look to her skin may be something else. Well, I sure don’t look the same as I did 30 years ago either. Carly comes from old money, her father, Richard L. Simon was co-founder of Simon and Schuster, the book publisher.

You're absolutely correct because there are only a few pictures that are included in his video and one which I did not post was a picture of Boehner's sister, which he claims looks obviously African-American in a way that makes it seem he's really pushing this Boehner connection because he's sister does not look very African American to me.

I read a fascinating piece the other day, about that woman Ronald Regan used to talk about on the stump - the “welfare queen” from Chicago who was a complete fraudster, bought fur coats, cadillacs, etc. with her ill gotten gains.

It was a very long story, but I’ll try and be as concise as possible. She was a real woman, and a real crook, she went to prison for her fraud, but that was only the 1/2 of it. She was just a stone-cold con artist, a kidnapper, and maybe even a killer. She only was tried on the welfare fraud. She is now deceased.

Why I mention it is that most people assumed she was black. It talked in the article about how she was sort of a master of, not disguise really, but mutability. The cops said she could easily appear to be white, black, spanish, even Asian; and she could pass for any age from 25 to 50 just as easily.

The writer looked into her background and saw that she was listed as “white” in an old census; they had one picture of her in which she looked totally black, but there was a much later one and she looked totally white. The article included a picture of one of her sons, he looked white. But she was such a shady character it’s not 100% clear to me that this man is for sure her son.

I can’t remember if the writer really delved into her background, I kind of got the impression that mixed race people were more common in the old days than we realize today.

Anyway, no matter her race she was a very bad person and she hurt a lot of people; she never really got what she deserved for it either, not on this earth anyway.

I, for one, am sick to death of the race this, race that, raceracerace crap. It is thrown in everyone’s face on a daily basis. This person offended, that person offended, everyone offended. If not by race, then by who screws who and how they do it and why they do it.
Really?
This country had better get a serious grip on its over infatuation with the race and sex issues. We are quickly reaching a point where the shouting and harsh words will give way to violence and destruction.
Personally, I do NOT care who Boehner’s ancestors bred with. I don’t care who Barr’s ancestors bred with. I don’t care who any random FReeper’s ancestors bred with. It makes no difference and makes no sense to even waste a moment wondering about any of it.

Not referring to the son in law’s color, but he is one ugly unkempt dude. No wonder Boehner is sometimes called Boner. Not for his prowess but for his dumb a$$ed demeanor.

Boehner is now playing the race card in not stepping down. JMO

I stumbled on this story again, about the welfare queen of indeterminate race.

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/history/2013/12/linda_taylor_welfare_queen_ronald_reagan_made_her_a_notorious_american_villain.html

It’s interesting, very convoluted, well written, sort of disgusting that this woman got away with so much - if anyone is interested.
