Robin Roberts ?
Hoda Kotb ?
Richelle Carey ?
All; are in the same medium, get national exposure, speak in SAE, and have parents whose ancestry can be traced back to Africa.
None (currently) live the lives of the average American - let alone the average Black American.
But are these women considered Black?
Soledad is of Irish and Cuban decent.
Robin Roberts can't escape her Creole connections.
Hoda is an Egyptian/American and raised in the South.
Richelle is just hot.
And Allison went to Brown.
But does any of this make any of these obviously attractive ladies (I have a thing for tall, lean, educated and pretty women.) - Black?
