Anne Hathaway

by ethnic on July 15, 2008

Birth Name: Anne Jacqueline Hathaway

Place of Birth: Brooklyn, New York City, New York, U.S.

Date of Birth: November 12, 1982

*Irish, French, English, German (father)
*Irish (mother)

Anne Hathaway is an American actress, singer, and producer. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Les Misérables (2012). She became famous with her role in the Disney comedy The Princess Diaries, and has since starred in many prominent films, including The Devil Wears Prada, Rachel Getting Married, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Anne is the daughter of Kate McCauley (Kathleen Ann McCauley), an actress, and Gerald Thomas Hathaway, a lawyer. Anne is married to actor Adam Shulman, with whom she has a son.

Anne is of approximately 62.5% Irish ancestry. Anne’s father has Irish, French, English, and German ancestry. Anne’s mother is of Irish descent.

Anne stated (in an article on that she also has distant Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this ancestry has been verified/documented. If true, it could only be on her father’s side (her mother’s family were all recent Irish immigrants).

Anne has said that she has a very pale complexion because she tries to avoid being in the sun, as her family has a long and tragic history of skin cancer.

Anne’s patrilineal line appears to trace back to Nicholas Hathaway, who was born, c. 1595, in Kingscote, Gloucestershire, England.

Anne’s paternal grandfather was Robert Earnest/Ernest Hathaway (the son of Pearl LeRoy Hathaway and Carrie Melinda Sensabaugh). Robert was born in Pennsylvania. Pearl was the son of James A. Hathaway and Emma Louisa Reed. Carrie was the daughter of Frederick Jay Sensabaugh and Myrtie F. W. Foster.

Anne’s paternal grandmother was Jacqueline Anne Hughes (the daughter of Joseph T. Hughes and Pauline-Mathilde Turpin). Joseph was born in Pennsylvania, to Irish parents, Thomas Hughes and Catherine Chambers. Pauline-Mathilde was French, born in Marne, France.

Anne’s maternal grandfather was Joseph Daniel “Joe” McCauley (the son of James Francis McCauley and Catherine/Katherine M. Crosson). Joe McCauley was born in Pennsylvania, and was a prominent radio personality in Philadelphia. James was born in Pennsylvania, to Irish parents, James H. McCauley and Mary Mulholland. Catherine was born in Northern Ireland.

Anne’s maternal grandmother was Roseline/Rosalina Marie Sinnott/Sennott (the daughter of James M. Sinnott and Florence M. Waters). Roseline was born in Pennsylvania. James and Florence were born in Pennsylvania, and all of their own parents were Irish.

She looks like she’s kinda Italian.

musicfangirl November 27, 2015 at 1:14 pm

JoshG October 25, 2015 at 12:40 pm

She’s not as attractive people make her to be. Pretty ugly to me.

athelya November 17, 2015 at 10:41 am

she’s more cute than attractive i would say

cwm85 July 28, 2015 at 3:31 pm

Looks really British…

Capricious April 7, 2015 at 3:11 am

She looks Italian to me.

athelya November 17, 2015 at 10:42 am

she looks british stfu

noneofyourbusiness February 2, 2015 at 6:09 am

She looks like a retarded horse. I honestly don’t see the beauty in this woman. Her mouth is huge and her eyes are big and freaky.

marjanel December 17, 2014 at 10:13 pm

If she were from Latin America, Everyone will see her “native features” although she hadn’t said.

thomas1987 December 18, 2014 at 2:40 am

what exactly are her native features?
shes extremely pale has big wide eyes,thin lips and her bone structure is fully caucasian
she has only caucasian features
i never saw a native american with those features

longhaired thick lightskinned gyal December 3, 2014 at 5:44 pm

She got a big ass mouth, kinda ugly

Wolfman October 28, 2014 at 7:27 am

Anne could have a Native American ancestor? Look at Princess Diana she is part Indian on her Mothers side being R30b Mtdna which originates in the Punjab region. So anything is possible also Diana was more Nordic in appearance than Anne.

neiltennant January 17, 2014 at 5:21 am

here in germany there are so many girls /women who look like her. They are german people, whose ancestors are living in the country for centuries.

i don’t believe her anymore

if she has native american ancestors, at least 5 million germans with brown eyes would also have native american ancestors lol

marjanel December 17, 2014 at 10:12 pm

That a girl with brown eyes ad dark air has native ancestors, it doesn´t mean that all the girls that loo like her have. There are people with blue eyes that are part native

guyinsf September 29, 2015 at 10:16 pm

I agree with marjanel. Your statement is quite ignorant!

leslie2 October 18, 2013 at 4:59 pm

Oh Anne, I’m disappointed in you. You just had to jump on that exotic Native train when you don’t have anything to prove you are of such claims or the blood quantum to say you are.


anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 2:30 pm

Celebrities always try and claim some “possible” native American ancestry

leslie2 October 18, 2013 at 4:56 pm

lmao I know right, how pathetic.

ashash October 18, 2013 at 5:00 pm

It’s “exotic” to them. Being just Irish, English, or German is seen as “plain.”

Adam December 4, 2013 at 6:05 pm

I honestly don’t understand why a lot of actors do this.

Bjorn January 15, 2014 at 10:19 am

Didn’t you know??? Its “racist” to have white pride…. :/

J.J. September 14, 2013 at 9:24 pm

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) I think it should be listed

smiley January 11, 2014 at 10:34 pm

Her eyes aren’t hazel they are brown. Not even light brown more of a medium brown.

J.J. January 12, 2014 at 12:01 am

correction; what the absolute hell are you talking about, her eyes are an exact hazel they’re light brown with golden and even slight green shades to them, stop making up your own definitions and posting them as facts;

smiley January 17, 2014 at 2:56 pm

If you have to examine her eyes at microscopic levels in bright light to find a tiny bit of gold (there’s no green) then her eyes are BROWN!!!
Nobody agrees with you!

smiley January 17, 2014 at 2:58 pm

By god her eyes are the same color as her hair in that picture.

J.J. January 17, 2014 at 5:59 pm

my corrections are valid you just seem to be headstrong for your own selfish reasons, her eyes are clearly a light golden brown and do contain subtle green, open your eyes mate

J.J. January 17, 2014 at 11:06 pm

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) is there some way this website can lock the information on these celebrities hair and eye colour so annoying ignoramus’s like smiley can’t keep contesting valid information listed

smiley January 26, 2014 at 2:11 pm

The fact that you want to “lock the information” on this site shows that you won’t listen to anybody else’s opinions. Nobody who has replied to you has agreed with you. I wonder if you’re trolling.

nnnnn November 21, 2012 at 1:26 am

she looks typical native-american, although she has pale

andrew January 20, 2013 at 9:08 pm

you must be a troll for sure.

DK1x March 26, 2013 at 10:48 am

Rather then slandering a person how about you try to disprove them. Calling someone a troll doesn’t make you look cool.

nnnnn May 25, 2013 at 1:56 pm

andrew: don’t dream, that I’m DK1x

andrew May 25, 2013 at 2:25 pm

I hope u were joking saying “she looks typical native-american, although she has pale
scin”, do u still believe that?

nnnnn May 25, 2013 at 1:54 pm

I’m apologize. I was relative new at this site, naiv and
believed at that “native” thing. Before I noticed, that
99% hollywood has “native”ancestry.
I would say, she looks french. And scottish. Scotts are
(mostly) more “dark”, as other north-europeans

nnnnn May 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm

I ment her look

nnnnn May 25, 2013 at 2:36 pm

Ethnic didn’t noticed, “how scottish and french”
she is

leslie2 October 18, 2013 at 4:57 pm


This webesite would be awful with you.

follers October 18, 2013 at 4:59 pm

I hope you mean, “without you”, because, at the moment, I am here.

leslie2 October 18, 2013 at 5:00 pm

lmao yep. I missed the out :)

ethnic October 19, 2013 at 2:28 am

Yes she makes this website awful. Why I gave her editor rights I dont know. lol

Petrarca October 28, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Her parents look nothing like her, I think she just has a very unique gene combination.

ripper122 August 25, 2012 at 3:37 am

my god, couldnt u choose a better pic fro her? there are tons of them

ethnic August 25, 2012 at 3:41 am

I quite like that photo of her.

levangelista36 August 5, 2012 at 9:10 pm

She was fantastic in The Dark Knight Rises. She has the background of a typical white American.

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 6:38 am

and what are Irish people? kill urself

nnnnn September 28, 2012 at 12:40 am

She’s baaaaaack! I think, Ocean is her re-encranation

It’s good, that too “emotional” users are blocked.

nnnnn September 28, 2012 at 12:41 am

Of course, I ment LEvangelista, not Hataway

levangelista36 July 27, 2012 at 5:52 pm

I loved her as Catwoman. Well done, Anne.

sashafierce564 July 14, 2012 at 11:10 am

Isn’t she causisan? I hope I spelled that right!! Lol !!

Erin July 15, 2012 at 3:56 pm

She’s also Jewish from the German Jewish side of her family. So no, she’s not White. Just because someone can pass for White doesn’t make them White. For example, Rashida Jones isn’t White.

levangelista36 July 15, 2012 at 7:21 pm

I hope you’re joking about Anne not being white or else this site has some extremely stupid people on it . . .

Rashida Jones is half black. That’s why she’s not white.

levangelista36 July 15, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Anne isn’t passing for white. She is white whether or not she has German-Jewish origins (although I do not think she does).

Here is what she said about her ethnicity:

“This came from a bottle,” she says, tugging at her raven locks. “I’m very aware of my own background. I’m Irish, French and then a little bit of everything else thrown in, ranging from German to Native American. We’re talking about tiny drops of blood. Like I think my left toe is Native American.”

Of course she could have Jewish origins and not be aware of it, but as far as she knows, she does not.

I don’t understand what some people’s definition of white is on here.

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 6:50 am

are you mad or something? let me tell you something: Jews, Christians and Muslims (I’ll count only Monotheistic religions and the people who follow them) are just Judaism, Christianity and Islam followers and they can be I repeat THEY CAN BE: White, Black, Asian, Mixed (Mulatto, Mestizo, Zambo) Jews are mostly White but there are plenty of Blacks and Asians (Ethiopians and Singaporeans) too, Christians are a mix of everything but I guess Whites are the majority there too and by Islam is it also that way (yeah it’s true Muslims are not Arabic WOW) let me tell you why.. because those are the religions Whites mostly are.: Monotheistic religions because Asians have their own like Hinduism, Buddhism.. and so on and Blacks their religions like the African tribe religions and so on.. so go educate yourself or admit it your 8 or something like that? well or you’re just an American who thinks that every religion except Christianity is a race.. “White, Black, Asian, Mixed, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu..” yeah you guys really are stupid.. sorry to the smart Americans out there!

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 6:55 am

PS: you said the word GERMAN.

nnnnn September 14, 2012 at 12:10 am

I laught, too.

DaTruth May 30, 2012 at 1:46 pm

I can see her Native Americans features.

Milka May 30, 2012 at 5:49 am

Look up Native Americans than you see what they look like.

Milka May 25, 2012 at 2:15 am

Where the fuck is my comment everyone writes bullshit but as long its against Caucasians its ok right you motherfucker don’t waste my time. You people are retarded and look up how Native Americans look like that’s all I’m going to say now.

Milka May 25, 2012 at 2:09 am

Fuck you all fuck this whole bullshit site yes I mean you you fucking “moderator” loser

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 8:42 pm
I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:43 pm

She is so beautiful. She looked like a goddess in Rachel Getting Married, and even more of one in The Princess Diaries. She should be Pocahontas in the real life version after she finishes as Catwoman in the new Dark Knight film.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 8:43 pm

I don’t know why people like using my old name.


It’s kind of weird now that I read it.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:38 pm

She should play Pocahontas.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Brad Pitt can be the father.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Brad Pitt can be the chief.

Marc March 16, 2012 at 6:47 am

No! Chuck Norris must be the chief!!! Brad is not old enough for this

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Julia Roberts can play her mother.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Megan Fox can be one of her cousins and so can Ashlee Simpson.

Quentin Tarantino can be the chief’s sidekick.

lula March 16, 2012 at 2:52 am

I laughed so much!that would be a really good movie! What about Rumer Willis she can be the ugly sister lmfao!!

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 6:50 am

Yes. Rumer Willis can be the hideous daughter of the chief’s mistress. :D

Alice March 16, 2012 at 7:02 am

Love your work guys but lay off Rumer. She is not as bad as people make out. I bet Rumer would be a great lass to hang out with.

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 6:58 am

xD you’re putting Whites to play Native Americans? xD you made me fucking laugh!

Holly12 July 4, 2012 at 11:04 am

I’m sorry but all the above is a load of rubbish! Since when have the likes of Nicole Kidman, Amanda Seyfried, Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, (I could go on!) not considered to be Caucasian ?! CRAZY!!!!

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 7:01 am

when I saw the list I dyed laughing because of two reasons:
you’re fucking stupid
and they’re ALL White not even one of them being the so called “non-Caucasian beauties” go make a list of non-Caucasian beauties or shut the F up.. here we go I’ll start the list Beyonce, Rihanna.. good luck

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 7:05 am

PS: Whites are people originally from Europe – the indigenous people of Europe and you counted all Whites, White Europeans call them whatever you want like Icelandic, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Polish, French, Irish, Welch, Scottish.. blah blah blah.. God you should be on Guinness records as the stupidest person alive

me January 28, 2012 at 12:54 am

She is biracial like Hillary Clinton, Megan Fox, Rumer Willis, Hilary Swank, Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood, and Quentin Tarantino

White people lie to themselves. They do not exist. Jane agrees

me January 23, 2012 at 4:27 pm

she is very beautiful, I don’t see native american features in her, but I believe she has Native American ancestry, she has no reason to lie about it.

Me January 23, 2012 at 5:19 pm

LOL. You do not think she is beautiful. You can stop pretending now.

me January 23, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Just because you do not think she’s pretty does not mean that others can not think it. She is beautiful and natural, she just needs to tan.

shar January 24, 2012 at 1:43 am

She is natural why would she need a tan for the would beat the purose of being natural.She has gorgeous complexion no need to tan thankfully she is happy in her own skin unlike some.

mm February 16, 2012 at 5:59 pm

I love porcelain skin.

me March 23, 2012 at 4:08 pm

it depends on each one. The skin of Anne Hathaway and Michelle Trachtenberg look of a corpse, but the skin of Evan Rachel Wood looks of a porcelain doll and is pretty.

Rumor Mill January 22, 2012 at 12:00 am

Anne Hathaway = Indian squaw like Megan Fox and Hillary Clinton

Hate Me January 21, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Anne is castiza/harniza like Megan Fox and Julia Roberts. People on this site do not want to claim her, though. She is not pretty enough for them.

If you are pretty, you are mixed regardless of your ethnicity.

If you are ugly, you are just white.


Leigh January 5, 2012 at 11:28 pm

now i know why she’s so beautiful, she has NO English ugly heritage

Rachel January 28, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Hathaway is an English surname meaning she has English heritage.

Ktulo December 10, 2011 at 4:20 pm

All i know is that shes gorgeous.

Dasher November 18, 2011 at 8:59 pm

So why aren’t people on here screaming that Anne Hathaway is not a “pure white” or “fully white” person, though she has as much Native blood as Megan Fox, which is less than 5%?

I knew that you guys were just a bunch of racist ass people. If Anne is white, so is Megan. The only reason why Megan is suddenly “mixed” despite being only 1/64 Native is because she is pretty. A bunch of disgusting individuals.


mm January 16, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I think Anne Hathaway is waaaaaaaaaaaaay prettier than Megan Fox. Megan has a reaally scrunched face. Small eyes, weird nose, eyebrows, teeth. Not attractive. But I do likethe dark hair/blue eye color. Anne has more beautiful facial features.

Marc January 22, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Why do you think that Megan is 1/64 Native?
1/84 is more realistic
So Hathaway is about 1/94 or even less

jw October 24, 2011 at 5:48 am

Lots of Americans know their ancestries down to the letter. They can track it via record data/marriage certificates/ immigration documents etc.. Mine is purely Scots-Irish on my mothers side, then Scots-English on my fathers side. I look Scottish but when I go to France ( the French) swear I am French!!

All this ”race mixing” didn’t happen has much as people want to believe. People in Europe rarely kept mixed race babies and legitimised them before the 1920’s.

The English wouldn’t even marry or breed with the Irish until the latter half of the 19th century. They didn’t consider them White enough.

You can have a genetic test done to confirm its not that expensive. You will fond that many, many European/American whites are not mixed race at all. They are purely Caucasian is one facet or another..

Alice February 16, 2012 at 9:07 pm

I don’t know where you get your information from but it is just not accurate. The English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh are in fact the same people. Read this link below
Ireland was part of the United Kingdom until 1922 and Northern Ireland is still part of the UK. Ireland was under the control of England for 800 years and there have been many plantations of English, Welsh and Scottish people into Ireland. Irish have also went to Britain since people inhabited those islands. The people on those islands carry the same genetics. Culturally the Irish, Welsh and Scottish are Celtic but genetically the people are basically of the same stock. The Irish were looked on as inferior by the English in the past because to invade a country you have to dehumanise people. You can’t think of people as “equal” if you want to depossess them. I don’t think it had anything to do with the Irish not being “white” enough.

Serpent October 11, 2011 at 1:41 pm

What do Aborigines got to do with Anne Hathaway?

other sites say that she is a afroamerican woman

Fuzzybear April 23, 2011 at 4:34 am

Not that couldn’t be possible,but it was most likely a joke

Paul. April 17, 2011 at 11:47 am

She’s not part black.

She said so herself, she’s mainly Irish and French and has “droplets” of other blood in her.

I think Anne knows more about her heritage than any person on this site.

411 April 17, 2011 at 2:46 pm


Not that I’m saying she is part black,but she doesn’t know who grandma or great grandma laid up with or what her grand dads were.You people live in denial about what people did in the past.I mean I had no idea my great grandfather was white,my family never said anything so I did know.

Fuzzybear April 23, 2011 at 4:40 am

To 411

Your absolutely right.All the things I’m finding out about my family proves your point.Also for the four people who gave you the thumbs down,they can’t prove you wrong,so that’s the best they can do

Paul. May 17, 2011 at 11:03 am

I’m not saying that you’re wrong, it’s just that some people, like Anne, have actually gone through their family tree, and know their heritage.

This is a direct quote from her, on her IMDb profile.
“I’m very aware of my own background. I’m Irish, French and then a little bit of everything else thrown in, ranging from German to native American. We’re talking about tiny drops of blood.”

She sounds very confident about her ancestry, and I think if she was part black, she’d have said it.
The same goes for a lot of white people, and vice-versa! I always hear black/white people saying ‘that black/white person isn’t actually black/white, they’re probably white/black on their great (x4) grandmother’s side’ when in some cases this can be true, but it’s really not that hard to believe that someone can indeed be ‘100% /blackwhite’ and still live in America for hundreds of years.

Fuzzybear May 18, 2011 at 4:14 am

To paul

What you said is possible,However knowing names or even seeing pictures of a family member doesn’t tell you anything.People telling what your heritage is doesn’t help either.People were notorious for lying in the past,there are a lot of variables you haven’t considered.However I want to get on something else that was said.This (tiny drops of blood),I love how people try to rationalize that.There is no such thing as tiny drops of blood when it comes to your DNA.Every keeps seeing things from a way we’re taught to do math,but that is not how the human body works.I mean I keep saying this,that just 2% keeps us from being covered with fur and throwing boo boo.
The other part of your comment,I say possible

Native Pride October 20, 2011 at 3:33 pm

no that is very hard to believe!! and white and black isnt a race: european american?african amrican !

chuck April 16, 2011 at 10:01 pm

She is part black? Someone has evidence

Myspace Celebrity March 3, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I must have missed something. Are people saying that she has very distant black heritage or something? Hmm…

Anonymiss September 25, 2010 at 2:34 pm

Fuzzy Bear, at least you didn’t call yourself Fuzzy Bare. Please learn the difference ‘tween

They are= They’re




All’s good my friend but you just come off as so uneducated and ghetto. People may take you seriously but I have a feeling you’re just pissed off about not being “white”. I’m part Native also, Alaskan Native in THERE too. Don’t embarrass us.

Take the time to learn the difference and use Firefox to browse and post as it has instant spell check. As does Google Chrome, unlike IE.

Thank You.

fuzzybear September 25, 2010 at 6:21 pm

To Anonymiss

You coming at me because of my grammar,and not my facts,that’s interesting.Well first I do know the difference (your word = ‘tween )

(They are= They’re




Even I make mistakes sometime.I can’t type as fast as I can think,so sometimes I might leave something out(I DO FORGET TO PROOFREAD SOMETIMES).I had no idea that a person would be more worried about my grammar than my facts.Also of all the people on this site,that use words I’ve never heard of,you come at me with this;again interesting.

Now you say (uneducated and ghetto).It seem your under the impression that everyone that lives (THERE – this is the right word,this time right?),is uneducated.Now unless you’ve been there,don’t believe everything you see on T.V or the movies.People are there for many reasons,hard times being the main one.So don’t think just because they live there,you should look down on them.The media likes to show the worse,and then people like yourself gets the impression everyone one is like that.

Now people should take me seriously,I give FACTS.Not the lies that we have been spoon-fed since we were little.Also yes I do focus on African and African American achievements,and the fact that people lie about their bloodlines;I have to.According to history books,black people have done nothing.So the more and more I show people,they can see that’s a “LIE”,even if they don’t wish to accept it.Now if I say something wrong,I always say “prove it” ,I’ll listen.So if your expecting me to apologize for that,your going to have a long wait.

Now as far as me wanting to be (White),that was NEVER on my wish list.I have nothing against white people,I have a strong white bloodline.My great grandmothers,and grandmother weren’t raped,so for me to hate White is like saying I shouldn’t be here.Believe it or not,I actually like the way I look.I don’t think another skin color would work as well.Now I was born looking white,but thankfully I darken to a nice redbone color.

Now back to the grammar part.I’m not always on my computer,many times I answer comments from my I-pod or my Nintendo Wii.So sometime if I spell something wrong,you can see the keys are very small,and I am in a hurry.It is not my intention to embarrass (US) Native Americans as a people.It’s funny you said (us native Americans)because most native Americans today wish to deny black people that part of their heritage

fuzzybear September 26, 2010 at 12:13 am

To Anonymiss

I meant to say your coming at me.I thought I should fix that,I know how uneducated and ghetto you think I am.

Anonymiss September 26, 2010 at 12:15 pm

YOU’RE coming at me. Jeez. If YOU’RE (you are) gonna bother, just take care to do it right. Love your post despite YOUR crappy grammar.

fuzzybear September 26, 2010 at 4:17 pm

To Anonymiss

Darn it,Darn it,Darn it!!!,I see it.Ok I’m not perfect,but that’s good right?However to call me uneducated because of that,well that “HURT”.Some of the best writers in the world have crappy grammar skills,yet no one calls them uneducated.Ok in the future I will try to work on that,but I will make mistakes.So (YOU’RE)more than welcome to edited away.

CARIBGYAL August 14, 2010 at 2:50 pm

FUZZYBEAR I commend you for doing your research many people don’t so im proud of you but its makes sense. am west indian and we could have 9 nationalities in our blood scientists say and as a child i had red hair so its so true i have scottish, irish, polish ancestry and am a black person and some of my white looking freinds their ancestry goes back to africa before mine does. To further proove your educated point. I hope more people realize that most people(a high percentage of the world) are very mixed.

BTW,no their not going to want to hear that at all

Shadow Wolf July 23, 2010 at 4:20 pm

Hi Jane,
Just want to update you. the recent DNA testing of the aboriginal people of Australia (who by by the way- appear to be very African even though they do not make any claims of having African decent) has shown that they are 100% Caucasian. my point is that when people got caught in that ice age some of us changed. OK we changed so now you have all of these nice varieties. i say repect ones ancetors, but remember that all life started in one place. thinking like this helps with the concept of love for humanity. and finally (in general) we all can argue till the cows come, but DNA will just answer our questions for us won’t it.

fuzzybear August 14, 2010 at 11:51 pm

To Shadow Wolf

I want to get in this,could you show where that infro came from Please?Because last time I check Australia aboriginal left Africa maybe around 50,000yrs ago,and white pale skin didn’t pop up to around 5.5 to 6000yrs ago.Plus in my study,Caucasian is a phenotype that Australia aboriginal obviously don’t have;unless your talking about the ones who were during that period when white Australians tried to breed the black blood out the aboriginals which really did happen.I really would like to see a 100% Caucasian Aboriginal,because even white people aren’t 100% Caucasian.So get back at soon as you can

fuzzybear August 15, 2010 at 12:58 am

To Shadow Wolf

Still looking for what your talking about,can’t find it.However I did remember that you can look one way and yet have a unexpected blood type;although I still doubt that 100% Caucasian stuff.So like I said get back at me,I want to know what made them so special that they bypass the Asian blood types

Anonymiss September 23, 2010 at 5:15 pm

A Nat’l Geo Special DNA tested them. They descend from Black Africans but don’t want to hear that. Just look at them.

You need to define caucasian.

Ningli October 11, 2011 at 1:34 am

what exactly is ‘A Nat’l Geo Special DNA test’? We Aboriginal people are NOT african, we are a distinct community that has more racially in common with Dravidian Indians than Africans. Saying someone is african because of certain characterisics is just ignorant and stupid. But let me guess, you must be an american right?

Me myself and I September 13, 2012 at 7:16 am

NuBiaNQueen June 11, 2010 at 10:16 pm

I can’t understand why so many people are afraid to claim Black herritage.It seems like its being wiped out of history.I can’t understand why people deny their race period.Some people want to claim other ethnic groups just to give a more exotic approach to thier physical description.We all are distant relatives.

i dont believe it April 27, 2010 at 7:22 am


I don’t believe that there were black spaniards.Maybe they were african slaves,but not real Spanish.I am from Poland,married to a woman from Spain,and she is much whiter than I am.In fact she got some violet eyes,like I have never seen,just the same color as Liz Taylor.Spanish are from Spain,Europe,and they are white,the same as Italian,Portuguese or Irish.Don’t mistake the Spanish from Spain with the people from Latin America,where everybody is mixed (black,native american indians and few white).A language IS NOT a race.

Fuzzybear May 20, 2010 at 2:39 am

To i dont believe it

Well I’m sorry it took me so long to respond to this,but this is the first time I’ve seen it.I understand your doubt,it’s what you’ve been taught.First they weren’t even called Spaniards,they were groups of people,with a bunch of different names who migrated to area;just like ever where else in the world.Now I’m not going to get into a long history lesson,but Spain was taken over by black people for 700yrs.Now what makes a Spaniards?Could being born in that country make you one,or do you have to be white?Seville was full of black people,isn’t that in Spain,or is it you only count white people.Then you have the little half black kids,and don’t kid yourself,there were a whole lot of them,or do you have to be full white to be called a Spaniard?Also just for the record they weren’t slaves.One last thing,skin doesn’t mean jack.You can look like a full white person,and still be part black;I proved that a number of times. Also the same goes for Italian,Portuguese and the Irish.Now on the avg Europeans are still 3 to 8% black.Even Dr. James D. Watson,one of the biggest racist you have even seen,found out he was part black;and it almost kill him:
Now does he look like a black man to you?

Fuzzybear May 20, 2010 at 2:44 am
Jane June 1, 2010 at 9:07 pm

Actually anthropologists/historians have done plenty of research and Spaniards (like Italian/Sicilians, Greeks, Portuguese, etc) are all Caucasian. Even if a lot of Europeans had 3-8% Black ancestry, it’s almost nonexistent. Once someone’s heritage reaches 1/32 (or less like 1/64), it doesn’t count anymore. I have a friend who claims she’s 1/32 black (she traced her genealogy), but looks mostly like her Irish and German ancestry and checks off Caucasian on her job and passport applications. Dr. Watson could very have (or had, don’t know if he died) black ancestry, but it certainly doesn’t show.

fuzzybear June 2, 2010 at 2:12 am

To Jane

Their Caucasian now,also I just put the avg percentage which was 3-8%;Sicilians are higher.Now what’s a Caucasian,a black person that’s has change,because of environment,food etc.Now the avg might be small to you,and that’s only because of time,but it’s still there.Also who’s to judge what counts?Now you friend probably does have recent black lineage ,I mean everyone does,even if they don’t want to admit it.Now as far as Dr.Watson goes, he does have it,but your missing my point.I wanted to show just because you look a certain way,mean nothing,as the doctor found out.Also people who are in areas now,doesn’t mean that’s what they always looked like.Also if something is almost nonexistent,why does it bother you that I mention it?

total23 June 4, 2010 at 7:33 pm

I Doesn’t Matter How Much Genes You Have, If You Have It Its There, But You Just Can’t See.

I Have A First Half Cousin (Our Dads Are Half Brothers Which Mean Instead Of Sharing 12.5% Of Genes We Share 6.25%) And We Look So Much Alike, People Thought We Were Siblings (Which I Never Really Understand Why People Would Say That I Mean Were Related, Where Gonna Have Something In Common).I Also Have A Second Cousin Whom You Share 3.125% Of Genes And We Look Totally Alike. When People See Us They Know We Are Family!

So Just Because You Can’t See Anything Doesnt Mean Its Not There!

Sorry For Bringing This Back Up!

katie September 10, 2010 at 2:29 am

portuguese have one of the highest african admixture results in europe up to 10% due to their early dabbling in slavery,hardly any “autosomal” studies have been done by physical anthropologists or population geneticists at all.They don’t want to dive into it,and stick to haplogroups which represent less than 2% of your dna.Eurocentrists will never admit that meds resemble middle easterners because they share more dna with them than northwest europeans.

the germanic tribes et al[who are the whitest] used the civilisation models of the meds,who got it from the near easterners who got it from the egyptians all of them swarthy.

I am a quadroon and whiter than every italian I know I resemble some of the greeks.. but I have green eyes and am more likely to be called turkish,my sister says i look welsh.

Katie September 23, 2010 at 6:10 pm

This is true african admixture in meds isn’t high, middle eastern however is,the most recent results I saw for 1/2 million tested markers [atutosomal dna] were.

European – 52%
Middle Eastern (Middle Eastern) – 48%

– This person was from Calabria

Europe 57.52%
Middle East (Middle Eastern) 42.48%

This person is from Sicily

Europe (Southern Europe) 71.88%
Middle East (Middle Eastern) 28.12%

-This person is from central italy.

I think it’s up to the person to define themself as Euro,Italian,Chinese et al whatever they wish and feel that they are regardless of the data.Not really for us to decide.

and to give people an idea of how useless haplogroups [y-dna/mtdna] are:
African-American/Black –
Y-DNA Haplogroup: I1d-Norse
mtDNA Haplogroup: B2
This guy must have one scandinavian ancestor and one native american [B2] ancestor but if we were to go by haplogroups we would make ridiculous assumptions.

Irish Fairy April 7, 2010 at 2:36 am

Actually, PAUL, Hathaway is a VERY English name; not Welsh, or Irish or even Scottish.
And, just for the record, a lot of celebrities lie and state that they have Irish/ Cherokee/
or, say, Spanish ancestry, because it is, for some pitiful reason, trendy. Knowing that fact,
and KNOWING that Hathaway is indeed an Anglo-Saxon, not Celtic surname, it is
quite probable that Miss Hathaway has far more English blood than she claims.
And there is nothing to be ashamed of if English she truly is!!!
By the way, I am an Irishman; full blooded and proud!

Paul. June 2, 2010 at 9:38 am

Yeah, but she’s said that she’s Irish, French, NA and German. Families adopt names, it’s not that unusual.

Be proud that Anne has Irish roots, she’s an amazing person.

YouWishUCouldKNow March 11, 2010 at 4:42 pm

LMAO @ ‘Isabitch’…classic. Regardless of her paleness, Anne is an attractive woman. I love the ‘simplicity’ she gives off. In my opinion, she should have stayed with her Italian boyfriend who was a bit on the dangerous side…it gave her that: Come close, but not to close, stay your distance appeal. But, it was her decision…it’s her career…

Sadly no,they never talk about it.There’s a lot of things we never learned.Here’s another,did you know that some of the famous Spaniards that explored and that were down in Mexico were actually black(example:Estevanico).Or that the first person said to have circumnavigate the earth was black also(Enrique de Malacca)?

Oh yeah,people don’t know about this because they don’t put it in school history books,or teach it.Irish were slaves right along with black people,as a matter of fact,Irish were worth less.Their women were even used as breeding stock,so they could get more light skin black people.There’s a lot of things that have been hidden from black people.Here’s an example,have you ever heard of the black version of wall street?

ethnic February 12, 2010 at 11:15 pm

that seems to be true. There were Irish slaves in the Caribbean and they were nicknamed redlegs because of the sunburn they sustained in the tropical heat.

Fuzzybear February 11, 2010 at 8:46 pm

It’s most likely because of that Irish blood,being a cold climate people.When they were slave over here,they burned so easy,they got the nickname (Red legs)

@ Nathan: Hathaway is not an English surname, it’s Welsh.
Her family might have changed it, she listed her heritage and the only British in her is Northern Irish. Her Irish heritage comes from Donegal and Cork, apparently.

Also forgot one other thing,I got into this because the guy was talking about there were no such thing as black Spaniards.This shows he didn’t know what he was talking about.Just because you don’t see them now,doesn’t mean they were there;Spain was very different place all those years ago.Here a quote from Elizabeth 1:

“In 1596 Elizabeth I had already decreed that all “blackamoors” should be sent back to Spain or Portugal as they were disturbing local labour markets.

Now if she was ordering them back to Spain,doesn’t that mean they came from it?

Also I do know there are black people in Spain even today

shelly November 16, 2010 at 12:02 am

Sicilians are not higher, moron. It wasn’t blacks who went through Sicily, it was the Phoenicians, or Arabs; this is why some of them look middle eastern. Learn information before you post it, fuzzybear.

Jane June 4, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Oh wow, good for you. And no it didn’t bother me but I felt like I should’ve said something. You’re the one who sounds very offended, not me.

fuzzybear June 4, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Hello you,ok I’m sensing a little sarcasm here.All I was doing was proving my point,however sense neither one of us is offended,lets say we just drop it,alright

black wallstreet aka Fuzzybear November 16, 2010 at 1:50 am

To Shelly

The Arabs were black at that time(Arabized blacks) ,and the Phoenicians themselves were what we call mixed with Ethiopians.Also for the record shelly,it was Ethiopians who seeded the Arabs.See unlike you,I don’t rely on what I’m told,I look things up for myself.I’m not letting my cultural insecurity of not being full white speak for me.So I think you need to take your own advice

shelly November 16, 2010 at 8:14 pm

Of course you’re going to say that, hence this is now an argument. But nope, they were CAUCASIAN, not black. Hit the history books.

black wallstreet aka Fuzzybear November 17, 2010 at 4:49 am

To Shelly

Of course you’re going to say that,because you don’t know what Caucasian actually mean.It’s a phenotype(facial features or bone structure) that’s all.However because of some stupid white scientist who found some human skulls in the Caucasus region.Now after examining them, he found one which he considered “perfect” and “beautiful”. And at that period of time in the world, which was a very blatantly racist time, the “white race” was considered superior to all other ethnicities and cultures. so, the man reasoned that the since the white race was perfect, and this perfect skull came from the caucasus region, the white race must have originated from that region…he then coined the term “caucasian” from (“caucasus”) to mean white people,Which was complete Bullsh*t

Caucasian people:

Not one white

Now for the record,it was you who came on here with the insults,not me.Instead of coming on here with facts to backup your point of view,you tried to insult me,so who started the argument

fuzzybear September 23, 2010 at 6:46 pm

To Katie

Just one thing,you have to remember DNA doesn’t tell you what a person looks like.What the test doesn’t show is that many of those arabs or middle eastern people were actually black or mixed black.Even if all they like to show on the net is the whitish type

Katie September 23, 2010 at 7:34 pm

that is true fuzzy bear middle easterns have been shown to have some african admixture esp.Yemen but I doubt italians would have much detectable influence.

fuzzybear September 23, 2010 at 7:59 pm

That might be because a lot of italians left italy,just a guess

fuzzybear September 23, 2010 at 8:33 pm

To Katie

Also the last time I check,I it sad Silicans had more black admixture.Now I know what places like Germany did.Yet also I’ve shown how people of African descent whose families or people have the same DNA as the other people around them.It’s on here somewhere,been so long can’t remember where I put it.Also just because something is not detectable,doesn’t mean it won’t show up in the family down the line

fuzzybear September 23, 2010 at 8:46 pm

To Katie

One other thing,about those middle easterns that have some african lineage.I want to know which ones there testing.Because you do know they pick certain ones.They do the same thing when they pick certain people to take pictures of to say what in that country.

Katie September 24, 2010 at 5:31 am

Fuzzy – yes a trait can disappear for several generations and return sandra laing is such a case of black ancestry returning.
I think that is what you are saying.

Yes they do use samples from certain areas,we will never get any sort of true understanding of african admixture in anyone esp. egyptians because of eurocentrism.

We do know however that approximately 30% of mtDNA lineages in South Arabian samples are African L haplotypes.

The best we/I can do apart from that is collate commerical samples exceeding what academics have.

At the end of the day it doesnt matter how much african admixture they have – meds/middle easterners consider themselves meds/middle easterners and that is what they are.

We have scholars all over the place analysing and deciding who africans are and where we come from daily, but it’s generally frowned upon for us to do the same to caucasians.

To be general from what I’ve seen of 318 different people of european and middle eastern etc background – african admixture was between 1-9% rarely over that.

But in terms of west african descent only.East African/South African/North african et al is not included as african, nor used in any of these admixture tests.

Your right at the end of the day,They are who they are.I just don’t like the fact that they will call me a liar,when their the ones in denial.You mention Caucasians,I guess I have stop.White people get upset with me. Even though it’s synonymous with white people,it doesn’t actually mean your a white person.Since as I’ve shown,every culture has it,even when their not mixed-blooded.Now the reason why they don’t count the other parts of Africa,which you most likely already know.Just west Africa is called (Negro Land),the other places are Arab.So they and others see them as different,even if they look the same(as in black).
