VANESSA’S PARENTS

CLEAR UP RUMORS

The image also served as a way to clear up all the controversy surrounding her ethnicity. Even though she has always identified herself as an African American lady, several people have questioned that because of her light skin, straight hair, and blue eyes.

“NOT BLACK ENOUGH”

When she won the title of Miss America in 1983 and was hailed as the first African American to land the prestigious honor, she was deemed as not black enough to earn the accolade.

In the image that Vanessa posted, it was evident that her parents are also African American with light skin. A DNA analysis run in 2013 revealed that she has genes from Ghana, the British Isles, Cameroon, Finland, Southern Europe, Togo, Benin, Senegal and Portugal, which might explain her striking features.

STANDING BY HER HERITAGE

Though many questioned her descent, Vanessa remains steadfast in identifying herself with African Americans. It’s ironic considering she’s being condemned for not looking black when in her youth she would often be bullied and called the N-word.

Today, Vanessa is proud of who she is and where she came from. Sasha is very likely to feel the same way, too.
