Isn't Christina Milian black??? Is "Cuban" even a race?!?

Some people are so effin' stupid.

Alot of people keep claiming Christian Milian isn't black, but she is!

African slaves were taken to Cuba as well.

She is just Afro-Cuban.

Cuban isn't a race, it's a nationality right???

    Yes, it's a nationality. And yes, Caribbean/South American blacks are of African origin, then there is a significant demographic of people of Portuguese/Spanish descent - and finally, natives.

    Oh, and Christina Milian is mixed race.

    Cuban is a nationality, not a race. Christina Milian is probably mixed with multiple things... who cares, either way she's gorgeous.

    Cubans can be any race, usually they're mixed though.

    She is partly of African descent but also has European ancestry. In Cuba we consider her a Mulata. Afro-Latino is more of a cultural identification than a racial. So someone who can be seen as 'racially white' can also be in a way 'ethnically/culturally' Afro-Latino if they have a grandparent or great grandparent who was black/mulato and/or if they are submerged in the Afro-Latino culture (not that there is necessarily a distinct one -- for example in Cuba whites and blacks for the most part have a single culture).
