    Awful, the whites who "pass" for blacks, (only the first guy) have a few exotic traits, Johnny Otis doesn't look black at all.

    The blacks who pass for whites are half or more white/non-black. So they don't meet the standard of the Irish-hungarian, really, you can always find people who are half this or half that who look fully this or fully that.

    Nothing remarkable.

    Rashida Jones is pretty good looking. She is amazing.

    However many of those people in Canada would not be seen as Black and can free identifiy as White, because their was no one drop rule.

    To me White and Black are not really racial but more of cultural element one that is dominated mostly by European and the other by African.

    what a dull topic. even most of the pictures are people of mixed ancestry, not real unmixed africans looking like europeans or viceversa. BTW, lose the White-black terminology, unless you are daltonic. there are very few individuals in this world who's skin is white. And betwween the africans, dark brown-black its not even the most common of skin colours. Just sad

    But Canada and many other diasporic black population still have a range of phenotypes. Also some black American slaves left the U.S for Canadian freedom with the underground railroad.

    Canada




    Many black Canadians, or blacks as they are sometimes known, are descendants of persons who left the United States to escape from slavery during the 1800s, black Canadian slaves, and persons who immigrated to Canada from the West Indies and Africa during the 20th century.

    The first black people arriving in Canada were slaves from New England or the Caribbean. Between 1763 and 1865, most of the immigrants were fleeing the United States because of slavery. The United States remained the main source of new black immigrants up till the sixties, when people from the Caribbean were coming in en masse.
    First black people in Canada

    Anderson Ruffin Abbott, the first Black Canadian to be a licenced physician, participated in the American Civil War and attended the death bed of Abraham Lincoln.

    The first recorded black person to set foot on land now known as Canada was a free man named Mathieu de Costa, who travelled with explorer Samuel de Champlain, and arrived in Nova Scotia some time between 1603 and 1608 as a translator for the French explorer Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Monts. The first known black person to live in Canada was a slave from Madagascar named Olivier Le Jeune, who may have been of partial Malay ancestry. As a group, black people arrived in Canada in several waves. The first of these came as free persons serving in the French Army and Navy; some were enslaved. Later, some were indentured servants, as were some white immigrants.

    ^Yes, we have a well known "historical" black population in Nova Scotia. However the vast majority of blacks in Canada are immigrants from after the Trudeau migration reforms.
