    Yes she is mixed.

    According to Ethnicelebs she is:

    "Ethnicity: African-American, Afro-Jamaican (African, as well as some English, Scottish, Native American)"

    According to Wikipedia:

    "Her father's family is of African decent, having migrated from South Carolina to Brooklyn. Her mother's family is from Manhattan, and Washington has said that her mother is from a "mixed-race background but from Jamaica, so she is partly English and Scottish and Native American, but also descended from African slaves in the Caribbean."

    So yes she's mixed, but obviously mostly black.

    What Ethnicity Is Kerry Washington

  • 6 years ago

    Is she Bi-racial? No

    Is she Mixed-Race? Yes.


    By how much? Who knows, she hasn't gotten a DNA Test. She's part Scottish descent or something. I forgot.

    Likely 20 - 40% Caucasian admixture.

    Why is that every time there is a successful, beautiful, or positive African American there is always someone (usually white) who wants to point out they are not fully black. Mostly ALL African Americans are NOT fully black. However when black people do negative things then no one asks for DNA analysis before declaring all blacks are negative

    Every Black American is Mixed so it's useless to point out.

    She's black but not full black. Almost every black person in the USA is mixed with another race anyways.

    She look black too me!

    It's amazing how every attractive Black actress just HAS to be "mixed."

    Kerry Washington is obviously Black. There is NOTHING "biracial" about her.
