Why is that Beyonce is constantly being labled as mixed because of her lighter skin but Angelina Jolie who?

has full lips like a lot of Africans is rarely ever described as mixed. Beyonce has two black parents one light one dark, we have yet to Angelina's mother.

Update:

My point is that Whites can have a stereotypical "black feature" and never be perceived as mixed. But when a Black person has "white features" and ligher skin then are ALWAYS perceived as mixed or having some caucasian blood somewhere.

Update 2:

STEREOTYPICAL white features and lighter skin-------BIG typo

    It is often a surprise for people to learn that, in reality, there

    is actually No Such Thing As a "Light Skinned Black" person.

    The term "Light Skinned Black" is really nothing more than a

    racist oxymoron that was created by White Supremacists in an

    effort to forcibly deny those Mixed-Race individuals, who are

    of a Multi-Generational Multiracially-Mixed (MGM-Mixed)

    Lineage, the right to fully embrace and to also received

    public support in choosing to acknowledge the

    truth regarding their full ancestral heritage.

    The people who have been slapped with the false label and

    oxymoronic misnomer of "Light Skinned Black" person are

    simply Mixed-Race individuals -- whose family have been

    continually Mixed-Race throughout their multiple generations.

    Beyonce really doesnt look mixed or anything. Its the blonde hair and caked on makeup that makes you bamboozled by her. As far as Angelina, her mom is french, and they tend to have dark features (hair, olive skin) etc. As far as her lips, I have seen some White girls with thick lips. Angelina isnt very "White" looking either. She does have an exotic look about her (eyes, nose). Could just bet hat she is part French. Genetics plays a role in this.

    Well I have never heard Beyonce labeled mixed but I get your point.

    People consider it a compliment to ask a black person if they are mixed as if having a white parent is something superior. To suggest a white person has some black in them would be an insult to narrow minded people, I AM NOT SAYING THIS IS MY OPINION.

    That is a common issue with lighter skinned black people. My best friend gets asked if she is Puerto Rican or mixed... I love her response... "I am mixed, if you mean a mix between two black people." She is much lighter than Beyonce. Angelina has her dad's big lips (Jon Voight) and I am sure there is some collagen hiding in there as well. ;)

    Because some people are still so baffled by the fact that there's so many different colors within the African American race that they have no common sense but to label a light-skinned person as "mixed." Some have no idea about our history, about Creoles, Haitians, Black Puerto Ricans, or the wonders of DNA in American society. They only see in black and white (no pun intended).

    The Francs are full lipped people. I have never heard Beyonce called mixed. Both her parents are black and I have yet to see the white grandparent.

    Angelinas mother is caucasian and French.

    Child will you puh-LEEZE calm down?!? What's with all these hysterical, hateful questions? Don't you realize how ridiculous you sound? All you are doing is providing entertainment for the white people and embarrassing the rest of us. Shooting out stream of consciousness ignorance just makes you sound like a walking minstrel show. Or Kanye West. If you are that bored, then turn the computer off and go find something more constructive to do.

    Angelina is a ringer for her mom and her father is the very white Jon Voight.her mom had the same full lips, sadly passed away early this year from ovarian cancer.her mom was mixed with French Canadian and Indian but no black at all ! most true blooded blacks who have no white in their blood line have the very tight Afro type hair not the straight or curly hair attributed to whites!go to Africa and look at people who have no interracial in their blood the differences are huge!you can go search old newspaper clippings for the very white mom of Angelina Jolie,i find it funny that you think big lips are a sign of African descent!!! look at Sophia Loren the Italian actress she has beautiful full lips not black at all!!! i am sure unless Beyonces hair is fake and full of extensions that it came from some white in the bloodline,so maybe you are the one with a misconception of truth!!! who cares really ??? good luck .
