Is French Montana Black? White - Mom And Dad

French Montana's recent social media comments have people wondering if he's black or white.  The rapper is black but it's arguable.  His mom and dad are Moroccan but he also has Somali ancestry.  Some Moroccans are black yet many black-looking people from Morocco consider themselves white.  Morocco is located in North Africa.  Montana was born in the country and moved to New York when he was 13-years-old.  

French Montana's son is black

French Montana's ex-wife, Deen Kharbouch is black.  The former couple have a son together who is black.  The rapper called The Breakfast Club this morning and him, Charlamagne and DJ Envy joked about French owning a pet monkey.


The fact that his son is black doesn't mean he's black but many would argue that Montana is black enough to get away with his comments.

The following picture shows French Montana's parents:

The picture of my mother and father at their wedding in Africa is my favorite picture. It’s unforgettable for so many reasons since it was the same year I was born and the same year my father was incarcerated for unfortunate circumstances. He named me from jail. After he was released, we were granted US visas and in 1996 I went on my first plane to go to America. I didn’t know any English. It was tough because I thought we were moving into the high rises of NYC, but we ended up in the back streets of the South Bronx lol. It was still better than back home in Morocco, but my father had a hard time and wanted to move back. My mother knew we couldn’t because there weren’t any opportunities there and she sacrificed a lot for us to survive in the states. We were on welfare and she worked overtime to keep us fed, clothed and a roof over our heads. I promised my mother that I would hustle and make my accomplishments unforgettable once I found my opportunity. I want other people who might be struggling to know that the sky is not the limit… You can do unforgettable things, so I present to you my single "Unforgettable". Feat @swaelee

French Montana dated Khloe Kardashian

The tweet below explains that French Montana dated a Kardashian therefore he's definitely black.  From 2014 to 2015 the rapper dated Khloe Kardashian.  While the Kardashians love black men, we can't use that to determine if French is black.  Kourtney Kardashian was married to Scott Disick and he's definitely not black.

Black people suffer discrimination in Morocco

While French Montana is trying to convince people he's black many Moroccans do the exact opposite.  Racism is a serious problem in Morocco.  Blacks are unable to rent apartments and they have been victims of serious violence.
