At what point do mixed Americans stop being considered black? ?

For example Patti Austin, Rashida Jones (and many others) have a white skin, are white-passing but they are considered black in wikipedia and in popular culture.

    When strangers assume they're white and still see them white despite getting a lecture on ancestry. Rashida Jones passes as fully white, Patti Austin looks light skinned black. Wentworth Miller passes as white even though he's light skinned black.

    Never, they are called "Passers".

    It is in slave trade 16th breeding (hexadecaroon) with a pure white. to start the chain. Some show after the 4th, called a quadroon.
