Even after watching Soledad O’Brien host all those CNN “Black in America” specials, it’s still hard to remember that she is indeed Black. Ms. O’Brien definitely has a lot to prove as someone who appears Caucasian but speaks on behalf of Black Americans as a major reporter for CNN. Her mother is Black Cuban and her father is Australian. Evidence of O’Briens heritage can be seen in the fact that she looks much younger than her 45 years of age. Black certainly don’t crack honey.
