My favorite: Wanda Sykes

Lisa Leslie?! She's married to a man and has made nasty homophobic comments before about lesbians in the WNBA, so... no.

John Amechi is a Brit

Alice Walker, the latest blck pair on 'The Amazing Race'.

Alice Walker came out? Has Tracy Chapman come out yet?
|by Vanilla Fudge||reply 6||12/26/2010|
R6 I think they both came out. Yeah, I screwed up Lisa Leslie. And can't believe I forgot Wanda Sykes.

There's actor from General Hospital, and some Si-Fi show, but I can't recall his name. He's C list, maybe D at this point.
|by Vanilla Fudge||reply 8||12/26/2010|
[R8] His name is Keith Hamilton Cobb. He came out this past April.
|by Vanilla Fudge||reply 9||12/26/2010|
There's something about B Scott I can't put my finger on. When he was just doing youtube vids, he was more "relatable." Now he seems to be feeling himself since he's friends with Mariah and whatnot. Plus he looks a bit freaky (demented stepchild of Prince and Halle Berry).

Keith Hamilton Cobb never came out. The article posted here previously was fabricated.

First of all, it's black WOMAN, not girl. Second, she's openly gay and I first saw the news in an interview with her a few years back in "Out."

R20 okay, good for you for reading it in a magazine, but the OP was asking for names, and her name was not on the list yet so I contributed it
I had heard it years ago, too, from her sister (I'm from Toronto)

Norris Herndon, the only son of America's first black millionaire.

[quote]Norris Herndon, the only son of America's first black millionaire.
Alonzo Herndon was Atlanta's first black millionaire out of his own achievements, but hardly the first black millionaire out of inheritance and hardly America's.
|by Vanilla Fudge||reply 40||03/12/2013|
Alonzo Herdon was certainly a millionaire before Madam C.J. Walker, who was certainly not a millionaire before 1914, having not even invented her product until 1910.
Scott William Bond is a candidate, and there were probably other candidates in rural areas that nobody ever heard of.
William Alexander Leidensdorff might have had some African in him, but I don't see where anyone has proved it. His mother was said to be a "Carib," which could have meant just about anything.
