Who Killed Johnny[edit]

Hi, started Who Killed Johnny imho a nice independent Swiss-US comedy by Yangzom Brauen. Please feel free to include in Johnny Depp, p.e. 'Trivia' 'in culture' etc. so you more experienced Wikimedians think it's worth to be mentioned ;-) Kindly regards, Roland zh 23:15, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

filmography does not include _happily ever after_[edit]

Johnny Depp starred in French film _Happily Ever After_ but this does not appear in the filmography list. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happily_Ever_After_%282004_film%29 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.20.105.245 (talk) 08:28, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Ancestry[edit]

I don't think it can be confidently asserted what his ancestry was. He certainly doesn't look like he had predominantly European ancestry. It is false to assume the official birth, death, and marriage records are correct, particularly in an era when illegitimacy and racism were burning issues.--Jack Upland (talk) 03:35, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

It has been documented and sourced that Depp has two lines of African American heritage, and zero Native. The tribes Depp claimed ancestry from have actually kept excellent records. His ancestors aren't on them, and none of the tribes claim him. It's precisely because of anti-Black racism that many "white" people who are the descendants of Black slaves chose to alter their stories to hide the Black ancestors, especially as romantic stereotypes of Natives have become popular among spiritual seekers. Similarly, there are contemporary African-Americans who believe they have Native ancestry, when they actually have none, because a recent ancestor decided they'd rather falsely claim to have Native ancestors than have to tell their kids that grandma was raped by a white slaver. Racism in this country has led to a preponderance of muddled family stories, but that's no reason to add unsourced and/or racist speculation to the 'pedia. - CorbieV 20:36, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
So you can confidentally assert that none of Johnny Depp's white ancestors had a clandestine affair with a Native American from whatever group? What's the source for that? Hiding behind smears of racism and wikilawyering doesn't negate the lack of logic in your argument.--Jack Upland (talk) 21:57, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
