poor thing....    

Nicole Richie was born Nicole Camille Escovedo in Berkeley, California.[2] She is of Caucasian, Black Creole, and Mexican descent.[3] She is reportedly the biological daughter of Afro-Latin American percussionist Pete Escovedo and a woman identified only as a backstage assistant on Lionel Richie's 1980 world tour; Escovedo was a member of Richie's band.[4] Reportedly, Nicole's mother was never a factor in her life, and Escovedo raised her alone.

mmmmmm hmmmmm    

15. 10. Nicole isn't black. She's like half Mexican or something. And obviously the baby isn't considered black because she's as white as Joel.
Nicole is half black and half white....the baby is black...

that would not make the baby black, it would make her 1/4 black.

Nicole is not any part black, she was adopted by Lionel and Brenda Richie who are both black.
What the hell with the birth father comment ? He is her only father, so why add the word birth?

Nicole Richie's bio dad is sheila E's brother who is half black and half mexican. her bio mom is biracial(Blk/White) so she is half black, 1/4 mexican, and 1/4 white.

let's just hope Nicole can stay off drugs, and clean up her mouth to raise a child. I hope that little baby has a good life.

Tara you are so ignorant. There a black people who look as white as Joel. And #22 the debate was about her birth father who is a black hispanic. So Nicole is part black.

These are two people who seem to have actually gotten it together. Nicole looks healthier and is staying out of trouble and dotes on her child. Joel definitely dotes on his child. What more could anyone ask for than to actually have Hollywood types who made the child their first priority? God bless them.

And Harlow is beautiful. Looks just like her daddy.

#15, the MORON who insists the baby is black. Does that child LOOK black to you? Do you know what a black person looks like? Go to the millions of black people in this world and tell them that child is black, you IDIOT! Get some effing self-esteem. Your stupid racial insecurities are obvious and have made you into a backward thinking ignoramus. Get a lbrain and a life!

Have any of you heard of the one drop rule? One drop of black blood makes a person black. That was especially true back during slavery. Not all slaves looked black. Nicole is part black, Harlow is part black, Harlow's children will be part black. It goes on forever.
