She and Prince dated off and on after being introduced to Prince in high school in Minneapolis. Their relationship soured after Denise Matthews aka Vanity entered the click, but Susan was originally supposed to lead Vanity 6 but didn't want the lead role.

Are you sure about that? I had heard that Jamie Shoop was originally supposed to be the leader but she didn't want to do it.

I don't know why it's so hard for people to understand how diverse African American/Caribbean (South and North) ancestry is. Susan is black of Trinidadian descent and Vanity's father was black. However, I always hear people say that Susan was Indian and Vanity was Hispanic. I'm not trying to be snippy or anything, but that just bothers me. I thought Susan and Vanity were black the first time I saw them. Black people in the Americas/Caribbean are as diverse a group as they come.

Let's say African descendant,

Vanity (I could be mistaken) was German born 1/2Black 1/2 German

Susan Moonsie is of obvious mixed heritage

I don't fully know how either identifies
Caribbean people don't always identify 'racially' but nationally

While I agree that they are both black, a note about Trinidadians: a large number of them are in fact of east Indian heritage. The African-Indian mix is very common there. Insofar as black skinned Indians from India, it seems we don't see many of them in the United States, but there is such a thing. I was just visiting earlier with my friends, a couple from the southern region of India today who are dark, actually alot darker than me. The husband looks like Taye Diggs, but with straight hair he wears in a Ceasar cut lol . They identify as black because of their coloring, and as Indian for their nationality and cultural heritage. So for me, I don't see the harm in Moonsie being identified as Indian (if she is in fact so) cool

I'm not 100% certain. From my limited familiarity with Indian culture it sounds like it to me. But to make sure, I'd better ask some of my Indian friends when I go to church later this morning. We have a large Indian contingent at my English speaking church, all chocolate-y and gorgeous love

nod About 40% of the Trinidadian population is of East Indian heritage and about 40 of African heritage. While most Indians are rather dark skinned I did not really get the impression that the 2 groups mix a lot.
The name does sound Indian to me too, but as I don't know a lot about Indian names I may be wrong.

Thank you Bellanoche for explaining that. As a daughter of Caribbean parents myself, many of my cousins are always mistaken for being from some other race or ethnic group. Even my own mother over the years, has been mistaken for an East Indian. If people study the history of the Caribbean, then they would not be so shocked or surprised at how diverse in appearance they are.

hug Hi 2elijah! My grandfather is West Indian (Barbadian) and people sometimes thought he was something other than black, mainly because of his hair and features. I think this has more to do with the limited perceptions that some people have of how black people look, especially with regard to hair texture/length, noses, lips and skin color - in short physical appearance. lol This is evidenced by the fact that someone on this thread said that Susan is "obviously" mixed. I am still trying to figure out what an "obviously" mixed person looks like. However, I don't want to hijack this thread by asking. shrug

Also, don't forget about the Syrian, Lebanese and the Chinese Trinnies!

In college most of my girlfriends were from the West Indies, and a good number from Trinidad. The cultural mix there is amazing. I had a different experience in terms of meetng people who were from mixed backgrounds .It was always cool for me to visit friends' homes, then out comes mom , dad, or grandpa and they would be Chinese, Lebanese, with just all sorts of delicious mixes going on there! They used to laugh at me because my supposedly educated United States ass had no clue about the cultural diversity of the islands whatsoever lol

Yeah that's true, I remember seeing quite some Trinis with Chinese or other Asian heritage nod. It may also be that I didn't meet that many people from mixed backgrounds as I spent most of the time in parts of Trinidad (north coast) where the population is mostly black (african heritage).
We people here in Austria usually hardly know anything about Trinidad at all boxed. So before I went there I had no idea they had a vast Indian or Chinese population there.
