Keyshia Cole celebrates confirmed mixed heritage after getting shut down previously...

Keyshia Cole, who once controversially claimed she was not eligible to perform at Black Girls Rock due to being ❝biracial❞, is celebrating her confirmed mixed heritage after taking a genetics test. 
At the time of those claims, she had no idea who her biological father was (long story). Anyway, the test shows a percentage that she is less than 50% black with 20% Native American (mostly from her father's side) and other European admixtures, ❝just as she suspected❞ she wrote. OK love, scream it from the rooftops if you must. We know you want to... 
 
The post is literally serving, ❝I told ya'll, bitches!❞ It is always fun and exciting to explore and celebrate your roots and ALL of who you are. However, not forgetting to openly embrace the culture and communities you were raised in (the very communities that mostly supported your career and one in which runs through your veins) is also very pivotal. Because once it becomes treated with an inferiority complex above all else, then we have a serious problem. Just my two pence.

Watching her past interview, she gave, "I'm down with yall, but not one of yall."

That's cute for her.

Am I missing something? From those results, isn't she of 80% African lineage? Good for her for discovering her make-up. I think the majority of Afro-American or Afro-carribbean people are probably of some sort of mixed heritage to an extent.

Oh never mind, I was reading it wrong.
