I didn’t point out in my Jumping the Broom post that Actress Paula Patton is biracial. I didn’t feel the need to go there. Patton says she’s black, and that’s her prerogative.
While plugging her new movie on Chelsea Lately, Patton seemed to be surprised her son looks so much like his white father. The toddler has blond hair and blue eyes. Patton has said she considers the term biracial offensive, and she confirms in the interview that her parents are of different races.
That said, I was surprised to hear her joke that she is waiting for her son to become “blacker” and that becoming black takes time. Really? I wonder what Robin Thicke thinks about that.
What do you say?
