    From Wikipedia:

    Vin Diesel was born Mark Sinclair Vincent in New York City, the son of Delora, a psychiatrist and astrologer. Diesel has Italian and African American ancestry. He has described himself as "definitely a person of color" and stated that he is "of ambiguous ethnicity - Italian and a lot of other stuff". Diesel has never met his biological father, and was raised by his African-American stepfather, Irving, an acting instructor and theatre manager.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vin_Diesel

    If he is of African-American ancestry, then he's a 'person of colour' but that doesn't mean he's black; it is quite possible he has black genetic history. There are recorded instance of mixed-race people being born and looking completely 'white'-- not 'albino' white, but 'white' in the Aryan (meaning originally from the Himalayas, not Nazi) sense. (Remember, Europeans-- 'white people'-- are descendent from the 'Aryan' tribe which has its roots in India. It is entirely possible for two brown-skinned persons to create a 'white' looking child; the reverse is not true.)

    So, while he is not black, he is certainly a person of colour. The two terms are not necessarily interchangeable.

    Actually honestly, I don't think so. I read an artical on him once....I don't think he is black.

    Perhaps. His hotness is nuanced with his geekiness (he has come out...as a Dungeons & Dragons player and wrote the foreword to the D&D 30th Anniversary book).

    Now go on...image Vin in renaissance fair costuming, about to show you his skill with sword (or polearm, or staff, or whatever he has underneath the hood).

    Don't you think he's rather camp - when he speaks? Can't believe Judi Dench was in the Chronicles of Riddick. How camp is that? Shit film.
