      Tisha, you ask where is she from her hair is nice and curly! I may be wrong and if I am excuse my tone but you sound as if you really are asking is “IS SHE MIXED?”. The where in you statement makes it come off as if she must be mixed to have the hair texture that she shows in it’s natural state. She is from the U.S. but that is neither here nor there when it comes down to it. Why is that people feel the need to say something ignorant right off the bat!

        Wow, dial it back. Working in higher education I would like to say there is no such thing as an ignorant question if the person sincerely wants to know the answer and I think Tisha innocently just wanted to know Tamron’s ethnicity. You read a lot into a one line question. We are all “mixed” (your word, not mine) so I don’t understand when I see natural sisters get upset when the question is asked (and in this case Tisha never asked if she was ‘mixed’ btw, you threw that on to her question). Tamron does resemble women found in some of the Southern and Anglophone Caribbean areas (i.e. Guyana), so I can understand someone asking where is she from.
