Blasians
The intention of this thread is to post more about simultaneously black and asian descents. They can be models, actresses or perfectly unknowns. I feel there are very little information of them which is a pity. The media is all about the eurasians. I always thought that maybe this mix was just rare, but after doing research on the internet, I think otherwise now. They are just outcasts really. Unfortunately, I don't know many models or actresses to post. So help would be very much welcomed. The specific definition of blasian is the same as Afro-Asian. Post away!

Aqua Parios is said to be African American + Japanese. It seems she confirmed it in her twitter. I don't know about it. But she clearly has asian features. She's my favorite blasian.

Chipo Chung is quite an obscure actress. She is the mix of Chinese + Zimbabwean. It's like a chinese with an african makeover. Quite amazing.

This is Maya Joi Smith. She's no model. Martin Schoeller photographed her for an article in National Geographic in 2013.
She is a mix of Korean + African American. Cute.

Are there any picture of Naomi's Chinese relative?

Is it something like her great, great, great, great, great grandmother?

And does that even count?

I'm very curious.

So many prominent Blasians!

About Naomi, I doubt she has a significant amount of Chinese blood.

I think that Robbie Morimoto must be part Japanese.

We have the Eurasian thread so why not have a blasian one?
It also isn't about models exclusively.

I don't see that many blasians nor eurasians there. There are plenty of other mixes like native americans, maori, black and caucasian ones.

I don't see any mixture at all. Definitely not asian. If she does have some admixture it must be minute. Very very very far down the line. I see more than 80%++ African ancestry.

The only thing that I see is a beautiful representation of a real Black model.

Just a beautiful model period.
