Why do people mention non average looking African-Americans to say they look mixed?

We all know most African-Americans look nothing like Will Smith, Chris Brown, Vanessa Williams or Michael Ealy so i honestly don’t know why some African-Americans love to boast about being so mixed plus many DO look like West Africans like Kevin Hart, Michael Jordan, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar only 1% of them are nearly half European they are not a mixed race like Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Brazilians or Mestizos African-American is overall a BLACK race.

    You Americans are so hung up on skin colour and 'being mixed' and 'black'. Why does it matter? Accept a person for what he or she is.

    If you go back far enough we are all 'mixed' in one way or another, and if you go back further we all come from black ancestry. The whole human race originated in eastern Africa all those years ago, with dark skins. End of story.

    I guess you'd have to ask the people who say that.
